AdSense on "Skip This Ad" Interstitial Ads Page

 6:49 am on Jul 4, 2007 (gmt 0)

Anyone tried this? I've seen two major newspapers which use the old ad scheme which takes you to a page with only an ad, and that page has a text link, "skip this ad," to take you to the content, if you don't want to click on the ad.

These papers weren't using Adsense. Is it considered a TOS violation to have an ad with no content on the page? (Can't image what the bot would find, although sometimes it seems to choose ads based on other site pages when it's not sure what to display.)

Refer to Ad Placement on the Program Policies.

I've seen it a lot with Firefox referral not ad units, it detects that you are using IE, and pukes out a page with IE security warnings and a firefox banner along with the skip link. Extremely annoying.

I think it should be okay for the Referrals, but probably not for the Content units. I used to redirect one in ten IE users to getfirefox.com on my non-commercial sites after ten seconds (big warning at the top to explain). Never tried it with referrals though.

Maybe it's time for Firefox Fridays where we all block our non-commerical sites to Internet Explorer users every Friday!

Those are called interstitial ads. And, no, AdSense would never allow you to serve up a PPC ad page with no content but the ad. Just imagine how the advertiser will feel, used as a roadblock and footing the bill.

Thanks for giving 'it' a name!
