Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
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?
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.
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 email@example.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.
