Can I make a site that is just an adsense search engine?

Hello!

An old domain I own, <snip> is crying out for a google type search engine.

In fact, Google itself would be perfect.

Why re-invent the wheel?

My question: can I make a search engine from adsense for search?

Some might say this is "made for adsense". Plz at least say it's "search for adsense". :)

Seriously though, can I do this?

We could then see what is being searched for and add further links which really could be of benefit to the user.

Coz this name never parked well. And don't believe the hype, parking can work very well.

Thanks for reading,

Alan

I've had sites built around themed / curated search engines. But the sites are very carefully picked, and if you don't have any other content, they'll never rank well.

I'm pretty sure the AdSense T&Cs require a site to present unique content.

If your site is a 'search engine' the easiest way to sidestep that minor issue is to build in a bunch of predefined searches where the user basically clicks on a link to see a list of categorized results.

Just a thought, not sure it'll be approved or not.

For the OP
If your site is a 'search engine' the easiest way to sidestep that minor issue is to build in a bunch of predefined searches where the user basically clicks on a link to see a list of categorized results.

That is more in the model of some of the premium publishers or the "templates" that some of the parking companies run..Godaddy parked templates for example

Doubt very very very much if Google would let you "launch" with that model..unless you already have a bunch of sites in the premium publisher program ..in which case ask your rep..

Hey domainer, as incrediBILL said, you need to have unique content, Adsense for search cannot be used on sites consisting only of empty pages or assembly of other "borrowed" content, that is agains policy. If you mange to combine search results from Google(organic), and Bing (organic) then it would be no problem having AFS on top.

Leosghost is rite too, BUT the domaining companies do not always use AFS, they often have AFC which delivers higher CPCs.
