Matching the font

 6:15 am on Oct 3, 2005 (gmt 0)

Would this example of blending be too much and violate the AdSense TOS?

Certain ads are Verdana size 8, so a directory lists every entry in the same format (colors, width, font) as the ads, and throw in an ad every 3 directory entries.

Would that get an account banned?

So I'm assuming if ASA responded to that, it's okay to match the font?

But I'm talking a bit more than matching the font...I mean making each directory entry look like an ad, except without the Ads by Gooooooogle.

Thanks, Jenstar.

Nobody can give a definitive answer to these how-far-can-I-push-the-envelope-before-I-get-banned questions.

I think I see another "I've been banned by AdSense and I can't understand why..." thread coming.

Why would anyone make a conscious effort to match body text with AdSense ads unless it was to trick users and cheat advertisers?

I sent Google the link on a private test page, so I'll get the official word before I do anything.

TheRookie -

The thread Jenstar pointed out can help you determine the font in your Google ads so that you can match your content font to the AdSense font. However, we ask that you do not alter the AdSense ad code beyond the options available on the Ad Code Layout section of your account pages as this is prohibited by the ToS.

Hope that helps, and as always, thanks for asking first.
