hi
i have have google adsense on the right hand side of my page, and upon playing around the other i now written a random one that shows google ads and then if you refresh google refferals thus giving variation as the user glides though the site.
This has now lead me to this question...
can i used google ads and yahoo ads together on the same page but NOT at the same time?

Easy decide how many different ads you want to use. Then create a random number script from 1 to how many ads. Then using a select case statement in asp call the ad.

You can have google adverts AS WELL as Yahoo AND on the SAME page. As long as they look different.

Below is part of an email I received from google themselves after I reported a site that was using both on the same page...

AdSense publishers may display third party advertisements on sites and pages showing Google ads as long as the formatting or colour scheme of these ads is sufficiently different from the layout of the Google ads.

In other words, if you choose to place non-Google ads on the same site or page as Google ads, it should always be clear to the user that the ads are served by different advertising networks and that the non-Google ads have no association with Google. If the formats are naturally similar, we would ask that you use different colour schemes for the competing ads.

So I can have a Google adblock blended right next to the YPN one with the colors reversed out and things would be good?

Is that a joke? You want to blend the ads together? Just in case you're serious, I'm certain that would NOT be okay.

Anyway, it would be a good idea to double-check whether Yahoo allows this. Google does allow this, but the last I heard Yahoo did not.

you can't display both adsense and yahoo ads in same page at a same time because yahoo does not allow that.

I currently alternate YPN and AdSense using OpensAds - PHPAdsNew.

I have been playing around with delivery times and frequency. Interesting results... Works well if you only have one ad per page.

We did this for years using a small handwritten script which also counted and alternated between impressions. Sometimes 1A-1B sometimes 1A-2B or 1A-1B-1C depending on the best outcome over time and available stock. We alternated betweem direct-sold graphic ads and Adsense text ads, and found that CTR generally improved for both, since the visitor wasn't necessarily seeing the same ads all the time when he returned to the page during the same visit. We also used it to better compare relative CPM for two different ads providers, since we knew they were running SIMULTANEOUSLY rather than perhaps different days, time of day, geographic region, etc.
