Recently, Google announced changes to their AdWords policy that will give advertisers more control over what sites display their ads.

Called the Negative Site Feature, Google's new policy allows members to create a "blacklist" of sites they don't want their AdWords appearing on. For instance, if you are targeting the SEO industry and you discover an AdSense-capable site that appears to be employing search engine spamming or another black-hat method, members can add the spam site to their negative site list, ensuring their ads are not displayed on the site in question.

Because Google's new feature seems to be receiving an appreciative embrace from AdWords members, a new site called NegativeSites.com is offering a list of sites, which is populated by user submissions, that have received a negative listing and have been submitted to NegativeSites. Visitors can submit sites they have labeled as negative to the growing list, which currently consists of spammy web sites.

NegativeSites.com provides a good tool for checking whether or not a site has been negatively listed, including reasons why.
