No links on page except adsense. OK?

Is it against the TOS to have no links on your webpage except your adsense adverts?

As long as you have content on the page I don't see the problem, a one page web site wouldn't have any links, not sure you have to have any other navigation.

I guess that as long as you have not disabled the browser's Back button it is OK.

I don't think there is anything in the TOS for this specifically, but it could sure put you in the "made for adsense" category or affect you with Smart-Pricing some how (just speculation). Good sites have multiple pages and good navigation.

Why don't you want any links/navigation?

So the only links to click on would be adsense I would guess.

But what about internal navigation?

Hermes, all your "how much can I bend the rules" questions need to be addressed to Google.

Pages with no navigation, images with no text, domains with no content... These are hardly what Google was imagining when they launched AdSense, but anyway only they can tell you whether your specific setup will get you banned.

I hadn't realized that Hermes was the one thinking of pages with no text.
Interesting ideas though: minimalist web sites with no text and no navigation.
Next question...how do you target blank pages for top SERPS?

I'm not running Adsense. If I were, and anything was at all dodgy or grey hat,
I'd avoid unusual gimmicks which could trigger closer scrutiny.

Cloaking, I'd guess.

This recent thread [webmasterworld.com] in the Google search forum gives an interesting way to boost a page without content to the top of the SERPs.

Back on subject, I know some one-page sites with little or no content and no exit links with AdSense ads on it. I discovered some because my AdWords ads appeared on them. On my advice a Google employee looked at the sites and advised me to use my AdWords site filter to stop displaying my ads on these locations but they didn't close the AdSense account of this publisher. The one page sites are still in the air after my report about six months ago.

So the situation is pretty grey at best. You might get away with pages without outgoing links but don't count on it.
