Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I am just wondering that this is broken Google Adsense TOS or not?
Thanks and good lucky 2005!
Advertising to get people to your site, emailing people to visit your site, otherwise inducing people to visit your site is all acceptable. However, take great care to never ask them or suggest to them to click ads on your site/support your sponsors/visit the advertisers etc.
Stay away from paid to read email sites as a means of generating traffic towards AdSense ads. These "PTR" sites are not currently against TOS, however, I can tell you from personal experience that Google will not allow that advertising and could suspend you for it. Luckily, I was allowed back in after being terminated. However, I would expect a change to the TOS regarding using these types of sites. Keep your eyes open for such an update.
You can try them if you like, but I promise, they are the precise reason that I had the worst week of my life after the death email came.
But I am still quite confused after reading the posts.
My oringinal idea is: Use PTR system send people (or traffic) to my index page, but I would not arrange Adsense in my index page. So if the visitors interested for my site, they would browser for more pages and would see Adsense in other pages.
So what is your idea for this?
If the email was just "Check out our sale" and the user didn't get any compensation for visiting, I see no problem with sending the traffic because they are at least somewhat interested in the topic of that site.
