Ok theres the adsense tos, but is there a decent readable set of checks to make sure your site and what you do with your site comply.......

ie.

1. Dont click on your own ads.
2. Each page has to have content that has adsense code.

I just think it would be useful...?

3. Not more than 3 ads per page *this is also per frameset*
4. Do not place something like "search site or search articles" above a search form

6) Once you've finished compiling and checking your site against the list of checks drawn up by this forum, go and read the TOS to check to see if your site is in compliance with the <i>proper</i> list. ;) It's the only way to be sure!

7) When in doubt, remember there's really only one place to go for a definitive answer - ask Adsense Support ;)

8) Strongly resist the urge to post to WW asking why you don't have thousands of dollars rolling in just 2 days after you started your AdSense campaign. ESPECIALLY if your site is only receiving 15 unique visitors/day. :)

pinkmoon, you have to be more specific for 3. You're allowed three ad units, and I think (but could be wrong), 1 or 2 link units, 1 search box, 1 adsense referrel, and 1 firefox referrel.

Also, for number 4, I believe you are allowed to say search this site or anything along those lines, you just can't tell anyone to search the site and then click on the ads.

Jennifer,

I always understood that you were aloud to have three ads one of those beeing a link unit (only 1 per site). But I could be mistaken, that is the way I interpretted the rules.
However, I just got an email from adsense support, telling me that I am not aloud to promote my search form with the text "search articles" above it. This was a reply on my question if it is alowed or not.

I've seen posts from other people that said they received emails from google allowing "search this site" type of things.

[webmasterworld.com...]
[webmasterworld.com...]

So, either there's a problem with using the term articles (which I can't imagine would be the case), some people are lying/are mistaken, or google are just arbitrarily telling some people yes and some people no. Either way, it's probably a good idea to have an email yourself that says yes or no for proof.
