Hello Guys,

Ok Im running a website and I have both adsense and adbrite ads on the same page. I asked before and they say this is ok.

But now Im under a new doubt/question here. Adbrite has the feature that let you decide if you either want to run what they call :

Low - Good, clean ads
Medium - Includes ads for Viagra, gambling, etc.
High - Includes ads for adult sites and ads with strong language

If I decided to allow adbrite to publish the "Medium" and "High" Network Threshold ads, is this againts the Adsense TOS?

Lol, I think Im not making my questions clear, is against the AS TOS to Display ads from adbrite with Casino or Viagra advertisers?

Thank you

Yes, google's rep warned us for allowing explicit ads from adbrite to show up. We terminated the recurring ad at adbrite and notified google right away. Then we were fine even if the adbrite ad took some days to expire.

I talked to my reps from both companies. They both said it's OK to host other companies' ads on the same page. Just that google wouldnt like it if other copmanies put up some explicit, adult-oriented ads. They warned us, and we reacted immediately, so I am not sure if they actually disliked it so much that they would terminate our account. But i'd rather not to risk that.

AdBrite is a text ad like adsense, how can we put it on the same page with Adsense?!

I would really like to use AdBrite, but I'm not sure can I use them on the same site (not on the same page) with AdSense? Anyone got confirmation?

Unless things changed recently the rule is you cannot use contextually targeted ads on the *same page* but you can use them on same site. But just ask adsense directly through your control panel to avoid confusion.

It has been said 10000000 times -
they are not allowed on the same page.

Also you are not allowed to have links and promotion of
casino-gambling related sites.

Adbrite is allowed in the same page with adsense, provided that you use only adbrite's direct ads, not netwrok ads (contextually-targeted ads).
Direct ads is simply selling ads directly to advertisers, using the 'your ad here' link that adbrite provides you with. Its not contextual, thats why google does allow it.

I've contacted adsense support before. Here is what they emailed me:

Google AdSense program policy does not permit Google ads to be published
on the same web page as other contextually-targeted ads. More broadly, our
policy does not permit Google ads to be displayed on the same website as
ads that mimic or attempt to be associated with Google ads. According to
these program policies, AdBrite may be displayed on the same page as
Google ads on your site. Please keep in mind that AdSense publishers are
responsible for ensuring that these ads do not mimic ads served through
Google AdSense. Additionally, we do allow affiliate or limited-text links.

You can also find ASA confirmation that he posted before in this forum.

so does that mean yahoo and google cannot be placed on the same page?

Why the hell you need adbrite in that case?

You can setup "By my adspace" button trough
PayPal within 2 minutes - it would be much profitable.
Adbrite (avnads) is about NETWORK ads + Selling ad space all together.

Hi guys -

Apologies it took me so long to respond to this thread. I've been celebrating the Thanksgiving weekend :) .

As you mentioned, it's generally fine to show AdSense ads in combination with other advertisements so long as they are not content-targeted, or do not mimic the appearance of Google ads. These types of ads are considered competitive as per our program policies ( www.google.com/adsense/policies ).

That said, if the ad content is adult, casino-related, or otherwise in violation of AdSense content policies, I recommend writing to adsense-support@google.com and requesting a review of the page in question. Since every situation is different and this can be a gray area, it's best to have a support representative personally review the page and respond to you on a case-by-case basis.

We always appreciate publishers who contact us to ensure their pages are compliant with program policies, and it's a surefire way to set your own mind at ease.

You can also feel free to sticky mail me with the URL, and I'll be happy to take a look.
