Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
If not do you think Google minds if the page is added to hundreds and hundreds of pages all at once like that?
I am asking purely as I want to be a little cautious especially the first time I add the code. Plus I note in the TOS it says that if ever your site is no longer allowed to carry the ads you have to remove them within one hour (!) now I may be fast and I doubt Google would hold you to that but a TOS is a TOS and the only way I would be able to do that would be if I only had one file to edit rather than a few hundred or thousand.
No - includng the code by SSI or PHP, CFM, ASP or any other language is server side so its just the same as adding manually to every page. From other posts here, Google i think also allows it in frames and has a special code to make it work in them.
I really hope that they will stick to the 30 minutes that they have suggested it takes for them to target ads on newly added pages, otherwise I will be helping the Red Cross enormously!
Anyway am only testing it at the moment and have decided to let my competitors advertise as well, as the pages they are on I hope will not affect our sales but we will see.
