Will Adsense allow a "Top-100 List " type website?

"Top-100 List" type websites and Adsense

I have a website (10,000+ uniques per day) that runs a "top-100 list" of sites which are devoted to a specific topic (not porn!) -- that is, visitors vote on sites, and the votes then affect that site's placement on my site's Top-100 list. In addition to the Top-100 list, my site has forums, editorial content, archives, and has been around for over two years. It is listed by Google, and I do sell advertising on the site (all very related to the topic).

In the experience of the august members of this forum, does this type of site pass muster with the gods of Adsense? (The "top-100 list" format is unfortunately often used by porn sites.) What factors might affect whether or not this site would be accepted?

If I could have some suggestions before I submit the site to Adsense, that would be helpful!

I can't see why not. If you're in doubt just apply to Google and see what they say.

Yes, Google accepts these type of sites. Or at least they used to.

The site you are describing is very likely to be approved for Adsense. Just think about all the sites out there that provide little if any content along with Adsense ads at the top.

Your site sounds like it actually provides original and useful content - which is what Adsense was intended for.

I also have a toplist site and I have Adsense on it with no proplem. The site gets about 30k uniques each day but the revenue is low compaired to some of my other sites.
