Is this allowed?

We're creating a resource center for web businesses and as there are several of us involved in the project naturally we are wondering if it is within the bounds of the AdSense TOS to allow for this.

Is it acceptable to place either a script with the code of several publishers in rotation, or to place several ad units on one page with the code of several publishers, i.e. One page, four ad units, each owned by a different publisher?

The G rules show that you can have up to 3 ad units on a page and one adlink. Have no idea about different publishers on the same page or site though. Interesting question.

IMHO though, lets say even if it is allowed. Say person A gets a lot of clicks on his ads and person B hardly gets any. Person B is probably going to be upset. Why not just use one publishers id and split it evenly 4 ways. That is if you trust each other.

Either way, to verify I would ask G first.

Just my 2 cents.

3 ad units is only allowed in one pages. It is in the TOS of google adsense.

One page, four ad units, each owned by a different publisher <--- is against the TOS of Adsense.

That isn't the nature of my question, and when link units are considered, you can certainly have four total ad units on one page.

The question pertains to whether AdSense allows the code from more than one publisher to appear on a page, or in a rotating script.

There are sites doing this for revenue sharing who swear Google says it's okay.

One site even does this to allow active forum members with their own adsense accounts to collect a portion of the forum ad revenue pages they contribute to.(HINT, webmasterworld, HINT)

The idea is that they'll use your Google adsense ID some of the time instead of their own when they serve that page. Sorta changes things, don't it?

LOL, as if Webmasterworld would ever go in this direction.

Well, competition is a wonderful thing... Adam Smith's invisible hand moves webmasters in mysterious ways.

You can use different publisher IDs within a site, but every page that is served up must have only one publisher ID.

The reason that google requires this is so they don't serve the same ads in different units.

So just put them in a rotation, or go with a random number assignment.
