Any of you "quick to parse" types got a cliff notes version of this?

The two that caught my eye, not sure if they are new is

- the language talking about having more than one Ad unit on a page but that they must not share any advertisments
- if you are an AdWords user and you are late on your payments, they can withhold your AdSense payments.

Other than that, I can't see much else. Certainly nothing about direct deposit. (hint).

What a week, first Inktomi and now this.

Thanks.

No need to post the whole TOS.

They have also added new ad sizes:
125x125 button, 160 x 600 Wide Skyscraper, 120 x 240 Vertical Banner, 300 x 250 Medium rectangle, 336 x 280 Large Rectangle and 180 x 150 Small Rectangle.

Interesting read under confidentiality (a)

I am guessing you got permission from google before posting their Ts & Cs here?

No, we can post TOS's in the forums. Serious copyright issues.

What about not being able to serve ANY other text based ads or contextual ads? I seem to remember the wording being softer before: that before you could serve some text based ads, as long as it wasn't from a contextual, text ad network competitor of Google's.

Did anyone else notice a change with this?

That I know is not new.

The full breakdown of the new changes will be up shortly ;)

We are allowed to serve multipul adsense ads on a page?

and...

Ads shall be grouped by Google and displayed with related Google search queries (where applicable)

Google promise to forward payment "within approximately thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar month.."

So, no more late cheques from now on, approximate is elastic.

Brett_Tabke,

But we certainly can discuss them right? The Terms and conditions are publicly available to non-program members at this public URL:

[google.com...]

Thanks.

No, still can only have one ad size per page.

Note: Please choose only one ad format per page.

jenster this is taken from the TOS

"You agree that while You may display more than one (1) Ad Unit on each Site Web page, but no Ad Unit shall contain any advertisement in common with any other Ad Unit."

That to me says clearly we can display multipul adsense ads on one page.

Well that New! Wide Skyscraper (160 x 600) - Displays up to 5 ads on a page would have worked nicely with the site if I had not moved to the leaderboard.

oops

I had thought TOS can be posted here. AdSense TOS is public documents. Anyone can read that. No AdSense membership required.

Anyway, I will take care of that. Thanks for moderator.

But we don't control what ads are shown...so I don't get that ad units part.

markus007,

But the questions is, unless you are using frames, how can you guarantee that the same ad won't pop up in both units?

Thanks.

That isn't the issue, the problem is there are over 200 geographic regions in the us alone where adsense displays different ads, we would have no way of knowing if duplicate ads where served.

No, I think that only implies you can have other advertising units (your own, fastclick, burst, whatever), but you still may not display two adsense units.

I would guess that you would get a reduced number of ads in each unit. Time for some testing!

Please choose only one ad format per page.

That quote says one AD FORMAT per page, not one ad...

The way I read this, you can have multiple ad units, but they all have to be the same ad format (skyscraper, leaderboard, etc.)... Is this incorrrect?

I am still working on the AdSense Terms overview, but I did note on the [google.com...] page, it does state only one ad format per page. I haven't gotten to that part in the Terms yet. Not sure how you could prevent showing the same ad twice. And boy, does this open the door for pages with very little content and masses of AdSense ads.

No the definition for adunit is pretty solid...

"such groups of Ads and related Google search queries collectively referred to as "Ad Units""

If anyone ever makes sense of the multiple ads clause below, please let me know. I can't see how we can control the possibility of duplicate ads.

"You agree that while You may display more than one (1) Ad Unit on each Site Web page, but no Ad Unit shall contain any advertisement in common with any other Ad Unit"

Should be interesting as the 'candy dot coms' have 10 skyscrapers lined up in a row then . . . there must be some kind of limitation to the number of adsense ads you can display..

And from the new FAQ:
3. Can I display more than one set of AdWords ads on a web page?
Multiple ad units may be displayed on each Web site page, but no ad unit can contain any advertisement in common with any other ad unit.

Still not sure how you can prevent showing the same ads in more than one ad unit though. Any thoughts?

The more then one ad on the page thing has got me wondering too. Any clarification yet?

You agree that while You may display more than one (1) Ad Unit on each Site Web page, but no Ad Unit shall contain any advertisement in common with any other Ad Unit

Maybe this means you can't have an affiliate ad for a site that is also featured in an AdSense ad?

It has to be G's responsibility to serve different ads to each box, though the F.A.Q aren't much clearer

See under "Format 3" at

I would exercise some caution before placing two ads on the same page. To me, what Google is referring to is advertisements from other advertisers not doubling up on Google Ads.

On the new ads page it indicates one ad per page only. Until this is clarified, I would not suggest anyone take any chances on this. Better to be safe than sorry.
