Fortify Employee Spotlight on Clarence HoA: During my Polytechnic days (Associate Degree equivalent), blogs were popular and people are hosting ads in their blogs to earn some extra income. Tried to earn some moolah, created a blogsite, and place Google Ads, but no viewers – naturally. Using my knowledge learnt from school, I created some automation scripts to act as viewers for my blog and within weeks, I received a snail mail from Google. My Google account has since been banned from using Google Ads service for earning income. My first mischievous attempt and probably impossible to forget as long as Google Ads still exists.
