The Google Ads policy on Image Ads will change around July 24, 2012. The policy is changing to prohibit image ads from tricking users into clicking on ads. The change will affect all countries. We made this decision for greater user safety. After the new policy goes into effect, the policy description will be updated to reflect this change.
