    "Not too bad": Does this mean they are better than Google??

    And, I saw that they don't have any exclusivity clause. But, we still can't use them along with Google ads on the same site b'cos of Google's TOS, right??

    actually, if they are graphical banners, you can use them alongside with Google.. Googles TOS just says no contextual targeted text ads.


    (I actually emailed them for clarification, and they said it was fine)

    There's a good way to get booted:

    Granted you already got booted for whatever reason, but (and this was likely the reporters words), you really do not want to encourage people to visit your Adwords links, I am pretty sure asking for people to click the ads is a violation of the TOS.

    This is from Adsense Policies.

    That's a bummer Josh. Maybe the guy from USA Today can put in a good word for you.

    Damn...I wish I knew that a week ago. Guess I should really read the wording. The keyword being 'contextual'. I just stripped a site of all fastclick ads ( i love their banners) that were appearing on the same pages as AS. Now I am learning that the banners are OK :rolleyes:. Guess I'll put them back up.

    Yeah, I know.. I dont like the way he worded that.

    I wonder if I can get him to email Google for me or something.

    Its kinda odd that right when I get the information about the article, it gets canceled.. I wonder if he posted it any place before USA today, and Google found out about it?

    My brother runs them WITH Adsence....

    Hasen't had a problem since (about a year)

    In my experience:

    Cons to fastclick:
    Page takes little longer to load then Adsence.
    Each site must be human verified by Fastclick.
    Ads arent "AS" relivent.
    Lots of "Win Prizes" ads.

    Pro's to fastclick:
    Revenue based on both impressions and click throughs vs just clickthroughs.

    Josh: If G still hasn't responded then I think your suspicions are correct. In the future when you get involved with PR maybe you could request either seeing the article prior to release or specify that there can be no mention of encouraging AS clicks to help offset the cost of your gr8 programming...if I am G, that is enough to put up a red flag. Perhaps this is the source of your problem. Without an official response from G we are all left to wonder??

    I, too have a problem now after reading this thread. I actually have 2 AS accounts. Purley innocent. 1 year ago I opened an account to check it out on one of my small sites. I don't think they had 'channels' then. After a couple months I thought the program would work very nicely on my high traffic sites. So I created another account (thinking this was the way you add accounts). With this new account they had channels and I began getting all my high traffic sites involved. I have not used the original account for 6 months. However it still exists. I am not sure how to terminate that account?

    Any ideas? To my knowledge AS publishers cannot terminate their own accounts. My dilema is this I have 2 AS accounts, I need to terminate one.

    No, Google *still* hasnt replied. I am almost certain they read my email though.. because last time I emailed them with a question, I got a reply a few hours later.


    Grrr... I am so pissed about this whole thing :(

    So, if google doesn't reply withen a day or two, what are my choices?


    Should I:
    Try to open another adsense account using the same name/contact details (I got my dad to signup, since I am underage)

    Or, Try to get my mom to signup (different name/contact info)

    Or, should I leave adsense, and try other networks?

    If this account actually was under your father's name you might be able to open a new acct in your name. However, I am not sure when G officially terminates you if they are terminating the name on the account, the websites set up in this account or both? Maybe someone who has been terminated will know this?

    If your site is banned, you can not put Adsense on that site anymore. You will have to submit a new site for your new Adsense account. I would just wait for few more days for the final verdict from G.

    You could do that -- it's the most secure way to get back in biz... or, if you are more adventurous, don't put the ads on the site that you suspect is a culprit for being banned (if you think you know what it is)

    eventually, if you change domain names for the current sites you own, you might be able to run the ads on all the sites again

    This thread is a sad earth shaker for hardcore AS publishers...we need to find an alternative! Some of us actually make a living on this revenue. For G to be able to pull the plug without explaination is a frightening prospect. I am honest, I am sure most of us are!

    If G's fraud detection system makes an error (it must) and the publisher is tried, convicted and terminated without any interaction with the webmaster in question...Doesn't sit right with me!

    Thats the thing, there is no alternative.

    Compare:
    Clicksor: 6 cents a click
    Bidvertiser: 8 cents a click
    BannerBoxes: 2 cents a click
    Targetpoint: 3 cents a click
    Searchfeed: 6 cents a click
    mamma media solutions: 4 cents a click
    Kanoodle: 7 cents a click
    AdBrite: 2 cents a click
    ... etc ...
    Google: 10 cents - 10 dollars a click. I was averaging 80 cents I beleive.


    Where do I go? :p

    Sorry Josh, just hijacking your thread for a little while! :D (Although this might help you too)

    Can someone post a URL of a site running FastClick ads? Just want to see how they look. I had a look at their site and their payment schedule isn't very clear. Can someone clarify what kind of payments we can expect?

    And, do I have to have pop-unders as well?? Or, are they optional?

    Finally, they said something about "ads can only run on the root approved URL". Does this mean I can only run the ads on my home page?
