What do you all think of this change? Many of the positive changes that I discussed with publishers for over a year now are now starting to go live. I would love to hear your thoughts. [blog.google...]

Can I ignore the violation? Is there a threshold for "we're disabling all ads on all pages"?

I wouldn't play that game. In your "adsensecode.php", you can simply test the current URL ( $_SERVER [ 'REQUEST_URI' ] ) to insert or not the code.

if ( $_SERVER [ 'REQUEST_URI' ] == $bad_uri )
// do not display
// adsense code

*Be careful, it's the URI (without the protocol and domain name) and not URL

Also, it should be written in your violation notification that you have 3 days to comply, otherwise ads will stop showing, or something like that.

I think I've only ever gotten one policy notification in my life (and it turned out to be a mistake) and hopefully that trend will continue, but this looks like a positive thing for all concerned.

(Discussions of declining revenue probably belong in another post rather than intentionally derailing this one)
