Hi,
Displaying an ad on a page with live chat might result a violation of "dynamic content" but I see that in some cases there are ads on pages with chat (or Instant messenger),
Any recommendations for a page with a chat and a lot of traffic?

First, if you have a lot of traffic, you probably are eligible for AdSense support, so I'd ask them.

Second, if you *do* decide to do it, I'd make sure the ad is far far far away from the chat box, so there's question about accidental clicks.

I have support, but I feel they are not very clear about this issue, and I didn't get a direct response to that specific question.

do you recall other pages with adsense and chat?

What will that prove?

It wont prove, but it'll help understand if and how ads and chat can be displayed together.

It won't. All it will do it tell you if you can do it (which is different from being allowed to do it.)

One person on WebmasterWorld has six adsense blocks (of which 5 show adverts.) He is not allowed to do it, but the system allows him to do it.

Personally, I would say that it shouldn't be allowed on chat or IM, but I don't make the rules, just abide by them.

Ad placement

Google ads, search boxes or search results may not be:

•Placed in emails, email programs, including webmail, or on pages where dynamic content (such as live chat, instant messaging, or auto-refreshing comments) is the primary focus. (Does not apply to AdMob.)

Google and I agree.

Main problem with live chat is that it's not modded and plenty of times "content" created through live chat can go against adsense rules. So, they just made it against all live chat in general to save the hassle.

Do it and get caught and you probably will receive perm ban for that particular site.

Use other ads instead of adsense is the safest bet on your dynamic chat screen. If the site has lots of traffic, don't risk adsense standing and eligibility for your other pages 'leading' to the eventual chat screen.

Think of others ways to work adsense into your site through looking and observing your user behaviors. Do they visit other pages? etc.

Given what LW posted (I hadn't bothered to look it up) I don't feel that's ambiguous at all, and I sure wouldn't put an ad on a page with live chat.

But ultimately, it doesn't matter what any of us think - what matters is if it's worth potentially losing your AdSense account over. Only you can decide that.
