I got a E-mail from them that said you can't have the code on pages that don't show content, but had no URL. So I E-Mailed them back and they replied with the cgi URL of a script that only has my ads. The script is what I use to make the ads show up through out the site on the content pages, so i don't have to make the changes one page at a time. Is there any way to use SSI with AdSense?
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.
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.
