Domain Being Blocked By Web Control

I am seeing this domain blocked on multiple devices in my environment by Web Control. Any idea what would be causing this or if this is something I need to look further in to? 

Domain: pagead2.googlesyndication.com

Hi,

I checked the details of the domain on www.trustedsource.org and it has minimal risk but it is categorized as webads, so have to check whether you have enabled to block the ads under webcontrol policy.
 Please check and let us know.

I did find in the Web Control policy for Content Actions that under Web Category Blocking, the Spyware/Adware/Keyloggers option was checked. I assume this is what you were talking about and this is why it is being blocked because it is considered Adware?

That is correct, disable the option and then try to access the URL and let me know the result.

I was not really wanting to access it, I just saw it start showing up on a few of my computers recently showing that it was getting blocked and just wanted to make sure it was nothing super malicious.
