Ads near interactive content

Due to a post on the Adsense blog,

Some implementations that could lead to accidental clicks include placing your ads:

- In close proximity to Macromedia Flash games


I stopped serving Google ads on all my pages with games on it.

Now I read this in their success stories:

At GameScene.com, CleverMedia uses 160x600 wide skyscrapers next to the games


I'm a little confused here. Am I allowed to run Adsense with SWF games or not?

I think you can Bddmed, just as long as the ad is well separated and identifiable from a game block in a way that leaves no doubt what is what.

Yes, that would be key IMHO.

So if you have a rather active game where people might slip off the edges and hit an ad then you should probably have a wide wide WIDE margin/gap between the game area and any ads on the same page! B^>

On the other hand a nice clam Solitaire card game could possibly be handled like any other content.

When you go to the Games site, you see that the ads aren't that far from the games, but there is a strong orange border between the games and the ads.
