I am new to affiliate marketing and adwords. I want to start a new web site. Can I use CJ links and Google adwords on same web page with out any problem ?

For any pair of advertising / affiliate networks you will need to explicitly check the ToS of both sides to make sure. That won't stop them changing the rules later and pulling the rug from under you.

Last time I checked the Adsense ToS there was no problem, I hope that they haven't changed that as I have several pages with Adsense and an affiliate netword (not CJ) mixed.

One slightly pedantic point on terminology, Adwords is the service that Google offer to advertisers, Adsense is the service offered to publishers.

You need to clarify the question.

If as piatkow has answered you want to run CJ and Adsense ads on the same page, you are absolutely fine to do that.

The rules surrounding Adsense are less stringent. You can have up to 3 ad blocks and some site links, in addition to other advertising. There are some issues with other contextual traffic sources like Chitika and Kontera, but CJ and Adsense is fine.

As far as Adwords sending traffic to CJ directly, you might be OK, you might not, it really depends on the merchant you promoting using Adwords themselves or not.
