I stumbled on this page that seems to be using Adsense, but it's not a format that I'm familiar with. Anyone know? (block of four ads at the bottom) They aren't Link Units, are they? If so, which format?

====
While I'm talking about Link Units (which I've never used before) G says, "- According to our policies, you can place up to three content units, up to three link units and two search boxes on each web page."

and the examples page shows samples that contain 3 links (vertical formats) or 4 links (horizontal formats) in each ad. Am I correct in thinking that I can place three Link Unit ad codes on a page, but they would contain links to between 9 and 12 different advertisers?

#1 you don't post links like that here; we use examples not specifics.

#2 those don't appear to be Google ads, but from some other network.

#3 if they are Google ads, that particular site is no doubt a Premium advertiser due to its traffic, and they have different rules.

#1 how on earth would I could I get a useful answer without providing the link?
#2 the page source refers to Adsense and no other agency that I can see, so #3 must apply

a. Describe with words.
b. If the literary muse fails then take a snapshot.

There are good reasons why we don't allow anonymous site reviews. The rules evolved in response to member needs and misbehavior. Among the reasons for the rule is that there is a history of:

1. Members posting links to competitors to bring negative attention

2. Members posting links to their own sites and then getting click attacked and permanently removed from the AdSense program.

3. Members using the forum to get revenge on publishers with whom they have a personal dispute.

4. Members, without intending to, brought about negative scrutiny and subsequent banning of a web publisher.

5. Our charter prohibits site reviews because the goal is to discuss the AdSense program and not individual sites, regardless if they are yours or not.
