    Question Question related to Adsense and Adwords

    Hello dear NetBuilders, I'm having 2 questions, one question related to Adsense and one to Adwords.

    Adsense question:
    On my blog RetiredAt16.Com, I want to have Google Ads... The problem is, I'm talking that I'm 16 (and you need to be 18 to participate to the program right?) and the other problem is that I'm having adult posts on it.

    So am I allowed to put adsense on it, or wouldn't I risk it?

    Adwords question:
    Yesterday I received 2 free Adwords vouchers, both worth €50,- than I also have a 30$ coupon that came with my hostgator hosting. This means I have vouchers worth €100,- and 1 worth $30,-

    Since I'm not using them, and not gonna use them, can I sell them? And on what prices are these mostly sold for?


    Thanks in advance

    The Terms of Service states that you must be 18 years or older to be eligible for participation in the program, but I've seen minor webmasters (under the age of 18) successfully maintain AdSense ads on their site and ultimately receive the check.

    I guess it's worth a shot. Just know that your account is subject to termination at any time.

    I always recommend the same thing to everyone under the age of 18: Form a business partnership with your parents.

    I would not use AdSense on a site with adult content -- that's a short-term strategy with long-term negative consequences.

    I've seen people selling them. Sellers appear to be asking for about 50% of the face value and buyers seem to be offering about 25% of face value.

    Well the Adsense account is on my mothers' name, so that shouldn't be a problem in fact, but if they saw ads on a blog from a 16-year old, they might think my mother is 16

    And it sucks that the AdWords vouchers are worth almost nothing.. Heck I'd better sell them or give them a way in a future NetBuilders contest!

    If you plan on even linking to adult content, then you can't have AdSense.

    Ok, what about a fun blog containing a few babes? The website: Greatest Inventions of All Time is mine and I would put Adsense on it -- Is it allowed or not?

    Thanks in advance

    That one violates the prohibition on "Illicit drugs and drug paraphernalia content."

    Gosh, why have I bought Hot Chicks Daily! & Greatest Inventions of All Time -- I can't even use them ROFL. Maybe I should sell Greatest Inventions of All Time instead... or remove the bad posts.
