Google has several new case studies for adsense now. I was checking one of them and i noticed that they have ads on non content pages such as their privacy page.

Isn't that against the TOS?

Without having seen the site, I don't see why a statement of privacy policies can't be considered content related to your website. IMO they're referring to "thank you" pages and the like that are void of content and possibly of any links other than the ads.

Did you check thru all the case studies?

How often does Google change/replace them?

There's a wireless hot spots directory there too

"it took just 20 minutes to implement AdSense"
I'd say it took 15 minutes total to design those pages.

>referring to "thank you" pages and the like that are void of content

I had a discussion here with ASA, and according to her, if the "thank you" pages have enough content then you can put ads even there, wanting to do that in the first place is a nother matter all together.
