Google Better Business Bureau and Adsense Payments

Search engine giant Google is having very hard time with keeping up with Better Business Bureau. There are lots of complaints about Google Adsense payment practices which is affecting many web publisher. Google Adsense Support team is terribly lacking of replying to messages or solving the issues for webmasters. The forum opened for Google Adsense Support is left to users discretion and Google Adsense Support team is not even responding to one message in the forum.

There are tens of web publisher listed under:
Please respond here if you Google has not paid you in multiple months for no apparent reason and there hasn’t been any response to their quest. Many of those webmasters who couldn’t get an answer months of months waiting period, they started filing complaints to Better Business Bureau in Santa Clara, San Benito, Santa Cruz, and Monterey. We also filed a complaint recently to this department about our Google Adsense payments. Google had sent the payments to the wrong address and after tons of messages to Google Adsense Support Team, we are left without options.

If you are experiencing similar problems with Google Adsense Payments, you can simply follow this link to file a complaint on Better Business Bureau against Google.

Google’s Better Business Bureau rating is “D” which simply means “don’t do business with Google”:

Our opinion of what this rating means:
We have enough concerns about this company (for example, their offer, customer complaints, advertising, etc.) that we recommend caution in doing business with it.

One sample complaint to Better Business Bureau:

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM: “Google has had numerous problems with its automated AdSense payments to its “publishers” (people who create original content that attracts internet viewers). Many like many others, it seems my account is on an invisible hold for unknown reasons. I have followed ALL the account setup instructions and pretty much worthless Help advice, providing accurate contact and bank account information for Electronic Fund Transfer. This bank account is showing as verified and no “Holds” of any kind are indicated on the account. And yet I have yet to be paid. Worse, Google AdSense has NO contact phone number or even a useful email address to resolve this problem. Further, its instructions note that if funds are “not claimed” by six month point they will be returned to the advertisers! So they are holding my money and threatening return of my earnings with no recourse. No PIN (confusing as to when/why it would be required) was ever issued and no links show up that enable me to request a new one.”
