A site showing AdSense on my site

Is this against AdSense TOS?

I discovered a website that has many links to relevant resources and when you click on any of those external links, you are taken to that site but with AdSense displayed at the top.

I have certain pages I don't want ads on. Is this allowed?

If they're framing other people's websites and inserting AdSense ads, that is a blatant ripoff and should be reported to Google ASAP. It's a violation of several clauses of the TOS.

It's hard to define "allowed", but it's not a nice thing to do or have done to you. Do a search on "framebusters" for a way around the problem.

<script language="JavaScript1.1"
type="text/javascript"><!-- // hide from old browsers
if (parent.frames.length > 0) top.location.replace(document.location); // Escape from any referring site's frame, but preserve one-click "Back". -->
</script>

In case you are confused by Ann's post. Copy that code to somewhere between <head> and </head> in the code of your page. It's a frame busting code that I use too and will open your page without the ads.

It's hard to define "allowed"...

Not that hard. Framing one's site is impolite in itself, but there's no way you can put AdSense ads into the frame. This site should definitely be reported to Google.

Ah, I misunderstood the question, I thought it was about framing in general.

Personally I think there should be harsh punishments for framing, such as long prison sentences in federal prisons full of convicted spammers ;-)

I had a Brazilian site frame mine last Nov. They had a top banner displaying AdSense on every page they framed. I notified Google right away and waited. The site is still up and running and framing away. I guess they must be a premium publisher. The worst, of couse was that their banner and mine both showed the same exact advertisements. Talk about overkill.

I had that problem. I did a whois on the site, added the IP to my deny list in .htaccess, and bam, gone they went.

It isn't just framers.

Some folks are running proxy scripts that go to whatever web address the user enters, requests the page and then dissects it. The proxy scraper then builds his own page that is an exact COPY of yours, except with the scraper's adsense code on it. (grrrr)

There is no javascript to break out of this, because it isn't a frame. :-(

I think that's what Kamikaze Optimizer was referring to. I have also encountered a couple of these sites, and I banned their IPs as well. Seemed to shut down their ability to mirror my site pretty effectively.

Yes, and I might add that if the whois info does not give you the correct IP info (just the name servers) all you need to do is ping the URL, bingo :)

I simply loaded one of my pages via the proxy site and could clearly see in my logs where the request was coming from.
