AdSense In Email

Discussion in 'Guidelines / Compliance' started by digitalpoint, Mar 24, 2004.

    It's widely known that Google is looking into the ability to displaying AdSense in email. But I was looking over the AdSense terms, and saw this:
    SEMrush

    The terms specifically state you can't display them on pornographic or hate emails, but does that mean you can on other emails right now? Well, I already know you *can*, but is it within the terms to do so?

    Hi

    The short answer as I read it is NO

    this says you can't as it goes on to say

    .....

    which means that this is read in isolation.

    However I must admit their diction is not very good.

    I had a problem with them where they said "only one adsense ad per page" - which is what I did - except that if you use frames you can load a number of pages at one time. So I pointed this out to them and they altered their terms of usage [about a month ago]!

    Maybe they are just preping the terms for when the AdSense can be displayed in emails. At least easily... As I mentioned previously, I was mucking around with them for fun (because I'm a dork), and you can make them work in email as it is now. It's just a little tricky.

    I hadn't tried to put them in an email

    Why is it tricky?

    Foxy + Shawn,

    If you read it as:

    or in any email;
    or on any Web page;
    or any Web site that contains any pornographic, hate-related or violent content

    This means that you cannot put any adsense code on any web page, as well as any e-mail, and you also cannot put it on any pornographic, hate-related or violent website.

    I would recommend sending them an e-mail and ask :)

    There terms are certainly not very clear.

    Just my $0.02 :)

    Try it... it's more than a copy/paste, and then even when you *do* get it working, you need to "trick" it into serving non-PSA ads.

    Yeah, technobrat, I had seen that, you are quite correct it is not clear as they do not put in the semicolons that you do.

    They are effectively saying you cannot use their adsense ads!!!! aren't they! :eek:

    Mmmmm.....quite

    I can do normal type pages with html [I set the code in a normal html page] but it doesn't like this too much does it? [I use FMP with popit and smtpit as a mail client with full html ability so I can send and receive html pages but view in a browser]

    That's another thing, in the email clients I tested it with I never got it working in Entourage or Mail.app on OS X. Which seem to lack the full JavaScript support necessary. But it did work in Outlook Express and the full version of Outlook on Windows (depending on your Internet security settings).

    Wonder if you can send html mail with javascript for the client to load a page on your site that you have setup?

    Would this work as the ad will be displayed for the page that is showing in the email browser?

    Or whould main client not load the web page at all?

    Probably used the frames support (At adsense level) to point the ads at a static HTML page containing the content of the mail.

    Either way, I'd say it's against the TOS, I think there was actually a post on Sitepoint about it being against the TOS (someone asked)

    This reminds me of a topic brought up in high school.

    A line of the blatantly unconstitutional and Christian-influenced code of conduct was added one year. It stated that "only human-colored hair is allowed"

    Someone refused to dye his hair back to a normal color, and spurred on by his classmates, he said something like "damnit, woman, my hair was colored by a human!"

    He didn't get very far.

    Maybe we shouldn't be so technical was G either. :)
