I recently founded a small social site. Until recently, no users complained of being unable to view the site at work.
It's been a few weeks since then, and after adding a bit more text content, was recently approved for Google Adsense. Now a number of my users are unable to log into my site at their work places because my website is considered "harmful", and in some cases, even "pornographic".
There is absolutely no pornographic or harmful content on my site whatsoever, and there never has been. It's a niche social networking site for lonely people, and the only images I have are small generic icons.
The ads that appear are often for dating sites (probably because of the theme of loneliness, but I am not running a dating service or anything of the sort at all), many of them advertising for "hot (x ethnic group) girls".
1) The ads are directly from Google... could they potentially be what is causing the workplace blocking problem?
2) Is there any way I can force Google Adsense to give me more appropriate ads?
3) Is this a just problem with the fact that some of my key words are "lonely" and "chat"?
4) This is affecting a number of workplaces. Is there some sort of certification or whitelist I can be put on?
Thank you in advance!
