  Know your Adsense TOS !

It seems that not a day goes by that I don't read a post at DP Forums or WMW from some poor n00b that has either had his Adsense Ads temporarily disabled or banned completely for a violation of the Adsense Terms of Service (TOS) that he or she genuinely was not aware of. To be honest, I did not really read through the Adsense Terms of Service and Policies until I had been using Adsense for 4 or 5 months. I skimmed over it when I first signed up and I can remember thinking to myself, "ehh, I'm not going to do anything stupid".. Well, not knowing the TOS and polices is the first stupid thing I did.

The Adsense Polices and Terms of Service pages are huge, and will take a good 10-15 minutes to read - and unless you are a lawyer, most of it is extremely boring. Because of this I have grabbed a few of the TOS and policy points that are most likely to get you into hot-water with the boys over at the GooglePlex if you weren't aware of them.

This is NOT A COMPLETE LIST of the Adsense rules and policies. These are just a few of the rules that I have seen broken most often by new Adsense publishers. If you have not already done so, I highly recommend that you read the complete Adsense Terms of Service and polices available here:
Adsense Terms and Conditions of Service
Adsense Policies for U.S. publishers


INteresting stuff. I once did an article about recycling pig manure to make electricity, except I didn't use the word manure I said the 's' word an I'm sure I got the dreaded PSAs because of it. (Although I'm getting the PSAs at the moment too for some reason). :-(
