    why would you stop it? firstly its giving you traffic that you otherwise woudn't have... say someone was surfing your site when it was banned in workplaces...

    so you would not have made the revenue in the first place

    and us proxy owners will gain a little revenue

    This is totally against Googles TOS. When they catch you and it is when not if, they will ban you.. Like lots of things it looks like a good idea on the face of it but in the long run IMO it will lose you a good source of revenue..

    I agree with many of the above comments about this idea being kind of cheap and unethical, but nobody has pointed out where it is actually against the adsense terms of service. I am curious now.

    For 1 it will be against the terms when someone uses the proxy to surf a site that should not have adsense on it = agains the terms. Replacing someone elses code as well, if you honestly don't think it's against the terms or will get you banned I have a bridge to sell you as well ;)

    My opinion is don't try this. You'll be banned from google.

    :rolleyes:
    No email is needed, jesus it's blatantly against the TOS, especially when a proxied page loads a site you do not control, that has the code on it, that is against the TOS.

    How hard is this to understand?! :confused:

    This is against the TOS because it clearly states in there that you may not display ads in content which you do not own the copyright for.
    Someone else's website counts as copyrighted content. As an owner of many successful proxies, it is upsetting to see that there are so many people just trying to make a quick buck.

    So I guess everyone can call this case closed. The script IS a violation of TOS. You can't put your ads on someone else's copyrighted website without their permission.

    Even if you could, it would still be a bad idea as others have mentioned. If you didn't have your robots.txt set up correctly, Google would start indexing proxified pages. If it happened to index a pornographic website with your ads on it, you could get into trouble.

    Doesn't matter if it's index or not, they have records of where the ad was displayed...

    I know people who have gotten in trouble for similiar violations when running adsense on a proxy.

    It's against the TOS... Very simply you are modifying the code... Techincally you have to copy the code exactly as it is form google. You "technically" can't copy adsense code and just swap out id. Now I know that they will never know, but you asked how this is against TOS, thats how.

    Also you are ripping off the other publishers. As a publisher I would seek legal action and sue you for any potential lost revenue.

    So this is wrong on two levels. And why are you asking for someone to email google. You're the one who wants to do this. You email them.
