But the problem I have seen - is that the same ads are served over and over again in separate units (the same ads shown in Unit 1 are also show in Unit 2).
So what's the point of putting more than 2 YPN ad units on a page? One at the top, one at the bottom of a page.
For AdSense, you are allowed to show ads on the same page as other contextual advertising as long as the AdSense ads do not use the same color styling as another contextual creative.
For YPN, their TOS do not allow publishers to show YPN creatives on the same page as other contextual advertising period (regardless of ad appearance).
However, my question is - will they enforce this with Google changing their policy?
In order to prevent user confusion, we do not permit Google ads or search boxes to be published on websites that also contain other ads or services formatted to use the same layout and colors as the Google ads or search boxes on that site. Although you may sell ads directly on your site, it is your responsibility to ensure these ads cannot be confused with Google ads.
Since YPN ads look strikingly similar to Adsense ads, I have to wonder if changing the colors of them would be enough to keep you clear of TOS violations. If so, how different do the colors have to be? Are these considered on a case-by-case basis? I was always under the impression that it was simply not allowed.
