yahoo and google on the same page

 5:52 pm on Feb 12, 2006 (gmt 0)

i was surfing the net and researching a topic i was interested on building a website and found a site that has both google adds and yahoo adds 2 of each on it. i realy thought that this was against both google and yahoo's policys can they both not no if you are running a different add on a page that you are running there adds on.

Were they on the same page at the same time?

If so, then it likely is against policy if I understand what your saying right.

yes they are on the same page and i thought that that was against policy.

I have seen few sites using both Google and Yahoo Ads. It is againest TOS, But i don't think Google will say you can't use YPN on same page as Yahoo is BIG and they and do the same about AdSense ads. So i think they will be removing it from TOS once YPN goes public.

I would be very careful about having YPN and Adsense on the same page. Google is very aware of the code on your pages and I would not be surprised to see these sites get the famous email that says you are no longer in the program. Google takes their TOS very seriously and I go out of my way to make sure I never break it.

I have had both on the same page a few times in test areas (as I didn't totally remove one while I had the other on the same page), and everytime I had it like that... neither showed up. 0 Yahoo ads, 0 Adsense ads.

I'm wondering how people are having it show both, iframes, etc?

gary, what they are saying is that they in fact dont display them both at the exact same time.

For example:


United States visitors see Yahoo Ads

United Kingdom visitors see Google Ads

That means that the script will process this before the output comes, therefore there will never be the same code on the same page.

Otherwise, if someone is displaying both at the SAME time, it is just a flat out TOS violation and they will probably get in trouble.

Ah... totally different. Sorry I got confused by the original poster...

[edit reason] No URLs plese, see TOS#13 [/edit]

xpress, you might want to remove that URL before the mods do: you're not supposed to "out" sites here.

But yes, that looks like a real violation of the Adsense TOS. Dunno about Yahoo's.

A little excessive with the ads and chitika huh? Zero content. Do people actually click on these things?


 2:59 am on Feb 15, 2006 (gmt 0)

sorry did not know that, how do i remove that link

So my first assumption was correct after all.

xpress, you can't edit the post now, you only have a set amount of time before it's not allowed any longer. A mod will have to do it.

deff a HUGE TOS violation of both programs, YPN and Adsense will close this account if they dont remuve the ads from this site asap
