    The issue of drop-down menus and selection boxes in forms dropping down over ads is one to be very careful of and can easily happen accidentally. Same for those ads that are of the 'click on this corner' type where the corner of the page unfolds to reveal an ad.

    Likewise be careful of blog titles which might appear directly above adverts. Would the blog title 'great ways to boost your online income' be OK if it was above adsense ads - which will be for increasing online income?

    Here's a couple not covered by the article:

    - No Google ad may be placed on pages published specifically for the purpose of showing ads, whether or not the page content is relevant.

    - Sites displaying Google ads may not include...Deceptive or manipulative content or construction to improve your site's search engine ranking, e.g. your site's PageRank

    These are both much harder to interpret - the second one suggests that you could be banned from adsense if the site in question is buying links, or doing link exchanges, or doing any of the other widely used techniques to gain links. If someone submits an article to ezinearticles are they trying to 'manipulate search engine rankings' for example?

    I believe that Google keeps the terms vague because they have secret rules which they do not want publically revealed. If you violate one of the secret rules, they kick you to the curb for one of the incomprehensibly vague rules.

    I received confirmation of this when I had a site banned from AdSense and adsense-abuse@google.com quoted rules to me which have never been published publicly.

    Many webmasters on the other side of the political fence from the fascist liberals at Google have suddenly and mysteriously found themselves or their political web sites permanently banned from the AdSense program.

    "Do no evil" is the biggest joke on the Internet.

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Very true! I had a Web site banned from AdSense and here is part of the email that I received:
    Publishers may not place Google ads on pages that violate Google’s webmaster quality guidelines (Webmaster Guidelines - Webmasters/Site owners Help). While we've included the following excerpts from these guidelines, we recommend that you take the time to review them in their entirety.

    * Make pages for users, not for search engines.
    * Don't employ cloaking or sneaky redirects.
    * Don't load pages with irrelevant words.
    * Don't create multiple pages, subdomains, or domains with substantially duplicate content.
    * Don't participate in link schemes designed to increase your site's ranking or PageRank.
    * Avoid "doorway" pages created just for search engines, or other "cookie cutter" approaches such as affiliate programs with little or no original content.
    * Avoid tricks intended to improve search engine rankings. A good rule of thumb is whether you'd feel comfortable explaining what you've done to a website that competes with you. Another useful test is to ask, "Does this help my users? Would I do this if search engines didn't exist?"
    * If your site participates in an affiliate program, make sure that your site adds value. Provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site first.
    The italized text is what I got pulled up for, yet it was nowhere to be seen in their TOS, after later revision. So, be sure to review the above "secret" rules, as well.
