In a blow to lazy college students worldwide, Google will ban ads from essay-writing services
In a blow to lazy college students worldwide, Google will ban ads from essay-writing services. A BBC report report notes that Google is making the move because the essays "threaten the integrity of university degrees."
The ban, to start next month, prohibits ads for "academic paper-writing services and the sale of pre-written essays, theses, and dissertations," the BBC says.
The sledding won't get too tough for these slackers, however. A quick check of Yahoo and other search engines found an abundance of such ads.
