AdSense Search frontend

Discussion in 'Guidelines / Compliance' started by rmaraujo, May 16, 2005.

    Is it allowed and possible to create a frontend for google search (inside the AdSense program)?

    Explaining better: the idea would be to create a search site which would simply point to Google (with my Adsense id, of course). The site wouldn't be a copy of Google's site, but instead would try to make easier the search by giving tips for the search (quick tips or articles about it).

    Any ideas? Does that exist?

    I think it would be allowed as long as you implement the search box according to the formats they allow (which are not very flexible). Here are the highlights which I hope you are already aware of:

    We understand that it's important for you to have control over the layout of your web pages, so we currently offer a number of display options for AdSense for search. Any changes to the code other than those available from your publisher account are not allowed.

    Under the 'Search settings' tab in your AdSense account, you may choose to:

    * Open search results in a new window
    * Customize the length and layout of the Google search box
    * Select colors or styles for your AdSense for search results

    Again, please note that modification of the AdSense for search code is a violation of the AdSense program policies. Publishers may not:

    * Pre-populate the AdSense for search box
    * Create links to Google AdSense for search results
    * Frame Google AdSense for search results
    * Remove or alter the Google logo
