That's exactly what I did. I had the ad content in a cgi file and only use it to bring the ads up at the top of every file on the site. But for some reason they don't like that.

Did you explain to them that the page they were viewing was related to your use of SSI? I know there are many who use this to add AdSense to their pages, and I would be suprised if they were to disallow it.

There are two ways you could be doing this.
One is ok, the other Google won't like.
If you are using SSI to include the text of the file within all your other files (the adsense containing file doesn't have <html> or <body> tags, it's just basically a text file that gets added by the server to each real page), then that would be the "good" way.

Here's there newest reply. I'm not sure how they found the script URL. They must really check there logs, BIG time, if they found a time that I viewed the script URL! (It's perl, so if you go to the script URL, it shows the ads.)
Thank you for clarifying this issue with us. The use of this server side include file will not be a problem as long as you do not direct traffic to the page [widget.com...] Your current implementation of this SSI will allow ads to be targeted to the content of your pages rather than the script page since the final HTML document contains the AdSense ad code.
