On Google, Essay Writing and Plagiarism

Plagiarists take note.

Google has added professional essay writing companies to its blacklist of "product and services for which it will not accept advertising".

According to the BBC "From next month, Google will no longer take adverts from companies which sell essays and dissertations - and the internet company has written to advertisers to tell them about the policy"

As you might expect essay writing companies are upset as much of their trade comes from Google. The ban has been "warmly welcomed" by University authorities.

The owners of the essay writing companies believe that students buy their bespoke essays so that they might have access to model answers to guide their own work!


I wonder where the adverts will appear next.
