I have an Job offering website where I have Google adsense ads. But as I'm not getting a lot of money from Google so I would like to use Monster jobs ads at my website. I'm a valid Monster affiliate as like Google.
Is there any violation of Google Adsense if I use monster ads at my same website?

It is against the ToS to put content sensitive ads from another network on the same page as Adsense.

Ads which are not content sensitive and affiliate links were, last time I checked, OK.

Oh oh! Someone please tell me that is incorrect.

For the last five years or more I have had content sensitive ads on my pages from Adsense and one or more other ad servers.

I thought the basic restriction was that you can't put non-Adsense ads on your pages which might be construed as Adsense ads.

I must confess that I don't regularly re-read the ToS so I can't guarantee that I am up to date with that but it was the case when I signed up.

It used to be against the ToS to run ads from other networks that were context sensitive. E.g. years ago when amazon launched their Omakase, Google Adsense support was clear enough that it was a breach of their terms at the time.

A reason I've never even experimented with omakase.

Now that said ... I can't find it in the current ToS.
Anybody who can ?

As long as your Monster ads don't resemble AdSense ads then you're fine. Affiliate links and whatnot are fine, just as long as they don't mimic the look of your AdSense ads.

Martin is correct.
