    Also i believe this is the responsibility of ad networks to serve ads according to the app's content rating.
    We achieve a certain content rating usually by lying. They don't even care. Yes rating is automatically calculated after you answer your questions truthfully. But its never right. Ad networks lets you add to any app. its up to you to filter these out if possible because google will block it.

    BTW there is an option content rating in Store Listing, which you can set to medium maturity, high maturity etc. What do you think are they not considering this field any more?

    I would assume so. But now i know its based on more then just the current app. Its based on my developer account as whole. I finally got reply. according to the following. It was a small banner ad image with a girl showing some skin. Plus any content from my developer account or website. So I guess i will have to rate all my applications at least 17+ because of my other applications as well. I have seen some people mentioning turning all of the app contents into a higher rating IARC level just to be safe. I guess that is the only way it will work.


    They could of mentioned this 7 rejections ago but nope. They just say. check ads. retake questionaire.


    Your app was previously rejected because you've used a screenshot with sexually explicit ad placement in your Store Listing.

    Going forward, I strongly recommend that you remove / modify this image and ensure that the content rating of your app reflects not only the primary purpose of your app but also the ads you are serving to your users.

    Our content policies apply to any content to which your app displays or links, including any ads it shows to users and any user-generated content to which it hosts or links. Furthermore, they apply to any content from your developer account which is publicly displayed in Google Play, including your developer name and the landing page of your listed developer website. In addition to complying with these policies, the content of your app must be rated in accordance with our Content Rating Guidelines (link below).

    Please let me know if I can help with anything else.

    Use ad networks that give you option to turn off specific categories like admob and FAN gives. I have disabled gambling, dating and sexual. If some ad network don't give that option you can contact support to disable these ads but that is not that much safe.

    My App content rating is 12+ and I disabled any Dating or Adult categories in all the Ad Networks I am using (but still no such filter is perfect... even with Adob I found by chance a Dating Ad being served in my App even if Dating category was disabled... and I had to block this Ad manually myself)
    I couldn't get a reply from Google about which Content Rating my App would need to have to be allowed to serve a Dating Application advertisement.

    Last year I faced a similar problem so I tried to set my Content Rating questionnaire to Adult/18, but shortly after that I received email from IARC stating that my simple uitlity Apps couldn't be rated as Adult only and I had to retake my questionnaire.
    Anyway in the last year this happened only once so I settled for rating my Apps 12+ as it seemed to be a very rare happening/review from Google.
    But now something seems to have changed as I got 2 rejections out of 3 Apps in one week.

    Anyone have any similar experience? at least I'd like to know if an App need to have Adult/18+ rating to serve a Dating advertisement or something like Mature/16+ is enough.
    If dating is all about numbers – how many dates you go on a week/month/year, how many times you put yourself out there, etc. – then the popularity of dating websites and apps have made this even easier. You literally have more people than ever before to choose from and can have a date every night of the week if that’s your jam. I’m not into that, though – I think you need to pick one form of online dating and stick with it

    of course, dating is a good think, however, what pitfalls can I face while dating?

    Buddy, dating is like our life - you will never know when you will face problems, so you have to be ready to any challenges of your life and dating in particular. For example, recently I started chatting with a woman from Russia, and you know, she was so beautiful that I even thought that it's a photoshop, and all in all it seemed that it's a fake account... Lol, I even tried to find the answer in the Internet about dating Russian woman and I found an article where there were listed pitfalls while dating Russian women online, so, after reading this info I understood that most likely it's a photoshop, because Russian woman, as it turned out, prefer showing their old or heavily edited photos
