Hi there, I'm new to this forum and I thought I'd post an email message I received from Adsense about graphics over ads.
Thank you for your efforts to uphold AdSense program policies and Terms and Conditions.
Displaying images above the Google ads does not currently violate program policies. We request that you add a visible border to the Google ad units. Also as you mentioned, we request that you refrain from drawing undue attention to the ads.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. For additional questions, please visit our AdSense Support site at https://www.google.com/support/adsense or feel free to reply to this email.
We'd also like to encourage you to let us know how we can improve our customer support. Please take a few minutes to fill out our brief survey at [insightexpress.com...]
Your input is greatly appreciated.
