Im hoping for a little feedback on this.

1. Read TOS carefully (more than once)

Anyone want to throw something else in? Thanks in advance.

Yes. However, There are many people from these threads that have claimed to follow tos very carefully and got banned anyway.

Perhaps there are some things in tos that should be highlighted that are often overlooked?

Have a site that will pass the "sniff test" if it's under suspicion for any reason. For example: Would your site have a reason to exist if it weren't for the AdSense ads on the pages, or is the content merely filler between the ads?

- Monitor your site statistics for unusual excessive hits from single IPs, block those IPs
- Keep a copy of your old log files
- Among friends & family your business is on need to know basis

1] Don't spend your life worrying about it

2] Create and Run a site you believe in, that conforms to YOUR standards.

3] Decide whether Google Ads will benefit both your site and you.

4] Don't treat Google as God, but as a way of making some money [ in the sense of AdSense ads ]

5] In business, partners are chosen to benefit your company. If the partner doesn't conform to you, or you to them, then find another partner.

6] Don't let anyone put the fear of God into you, as it is simple to put AdSense ads onto a site, and keep them there, as long as you conform t certain standards.

7] Don't consider being banned as an option. If you do the right thing, then you'll be amongst the vast majority of AdSense users who probably don't even know theres such a thing as being banned.

TOS + That one.

Really. I live by these two things.

- create websites that are made for users, not made for adsense. you are responsible for high-class content, adsense delivers proper ads.

- don't get greedy. greed is number one cause for a) ugly websites plastered with ads and b) finally getting banned because of doing nonsense.

Thank you AdSenseAdvisor for posting this.

This one is a little tricky

"Sites that use tricks or deceptive practices in order to trigger inadvertent clicks on ads are prohibited."

Im not sure what his means, Accept don't blend your ads in to much with your site to the point that it causes confusion.

However, google also encourages us to blend our ads in with our sites.

So where do we draw the line?

This seems to be a very grey area.

If you're unsure, why not simply err on the side of being conservative or safe?

thecleaner, it's not as hard as you might think to figure out that "gray area". In the past I've e-mailed the AdSense team to ask them if my ad placement was OK or not. If you're unsure, ask them. Then you know for sure.... before it's too late.
