Been using google adsense for 3 years , i do not want to be banned from adsense so i try to jump threw all the hoops.

There is plenty of information on here about the Privacy Policy but further integration with out a mod can be dangerous.

Where you can put the ads is often over looked by vbulletin owners.

its safe to think of it as you cannot put the ads on pages that require end users to put in content.

You also cannot put the ads on pages like search and new posts.

Here is a list of some places you cannot put the ads..
  • On any page not accessible by guests , this includes all pages where your user has to be logged in to view , all admin forums , premium members forums , private forums and ect...
  • New Posts and Search Pages
  • User Control Panel
  • Post Reply
You can only have 3 ads per page !

if you have google ad script in your header or footer you most likely are violating the google terms of service and will be banned.

Just to have google ads on the forum display page i had to do this ...

Thats to prevent the ads from showing in forums that you have to be logged in , premium member or staff to view

you cant just plug the ads into your site. Yes you may be generating some funds right now but that don't mean your safe , do your self a favor and refresh your self with google ads information:

It is allowed to place google adsense ads on pages which are not accessable for guests,
eg. staff forums or private member forums.

If you do you have 2 options:
1) do nothing: the google adsense spider can't crawl the content and will display ads depending on the page title and meta tags (I think)
2) create a member account for the adsense spider > add the appropriate access rights > go to your adsense account > adsense setup > Site Authentication > and enter all necessary infos
from now on the google adsense spider will be able to access your restricted forums to crawl the content for more targeted ads

also the search page and new posts page is a content page which means you can display ads

in regards to the userCP, for my websites I contacted google about the problem and they told me, it is within their guidelines to have ads there too.
HOWEVER no warranties what so ever, ask google yourself to make sure!

Can you please share how you managed to get forumid to be a valid variable for the header/footer (or even navbar) templates?

This method does not work for vB4.

Neither of these are really accurate. While you can only have 3 "Adsense for content" advertisements per page, you can also have 3 Link Units and 2 search boxes on that page as well.

You can also have Google Ads in your header and footer, provided you aren't displaying them on member only pages (Use if script = UserCP, Private, etc etc), however Google appears to be very lenient with forums placing of these advertisements, and in the 4+ years I've used adsense on forums I've never had a problem with a global header or footer advertisement.

I worked closely with Google on the vBulletin 3.8 AdSense implementation.

All placements were scrutinised and approved by the Google team.

That included header and footer-mounted placements without conditionals to hide them on UserCP, Private Messages etc.

What about new posts search page , because if your ads are in the header or footer they are going to show there and it says specifically its against the google TOS to put the ads on search pages.

Let alone that the vBulletin AdSense implementation. is a horror story of people getting 8 balled by google after using the feature on there forums

The most important tip is not to put Adsense under Heaser Tags h1 and h2
it is considered ads under misleading titles !

if you have google ad script in your header or footer you most likely are violating the google terms of service and will be banned.
I do not agree wiht that !

Good to know.

I guess I can leave mine as they are. I do have another issue that I emailed them about. After a week of having my account I am getting this pink message:

Your ads have recently appeared on websites you haven't authorised. To avoid lost revenue, make sure that you authorise any sites where you display ads by visiting your account settings.

Forum is njstangers @ org Please let me know if anyone has any feedback on. P.S. Did anyone else notice google spelled a word wrong multiple times there? lol

I have 3 working days to fix my adsense, i thought it was because it was in my first post ?

But after reading post (7) it might be because of my navbar that has a custom H1 tags for the navigation breadcrumb

I have also contacted google adsense asking for there help on the situation (waiting) - i turned on the vbulletin stock adsense integration while removing my custom adsense template mods.....and my adsense revenue has dropped by 70%

So would you think this is because of the H1 Tags and H2 tags being above the adsense banners? and can anyone clarify that adense in the first post is ok ?

I will remove the H1 tags if I can put it back the way it was.

Thank you for any help on this.

Mick

i dont know about the h1 & h2 tags.

but i always put the ads above it, and never think to put it below.

the reason when the visitors see the ads above this means more chances to click on that ad.

otherwise will scroll down to read the post and there are other few units inside the post.

Also - make sure you moderate users posts. My site was banned from Adsense because someone posted jokes about a celebrity who had recently died. It is something that moderators should have removed, but never saw it.
