Google said it will renew the voluntary commitments it made to the US Federal Trade Commission regarding its ADWords API Terms and Conditions. Under the rules, Google agreed to remove certain clauses from its advertising platform and agreed to provide a system for how third party content is handled in search results. Specifially, Google said it would provide a mechanism for websites to opt out of the display of their crawled content on certain Google web pages linked to google.com in the US, on a domain-by-domain basis.
