Any paid advertising listings posted on search results or other pages of our site are identified as "Ads by Google." We review these ads on a regular basis and will remove any that don't meet our criteria for advertisers. However, we aren't able to preview all listings in the "Ads by Google" area before they appear on our site because of the way in which these ads are served to us by Google. It's possible that some listings may appear that don't meet our ad guidelines. For information about how Google sorts these listings, go to http://adwords.google.com/.
Accbf.org does not endorse any companies or products.
