Blogrush - Another Official Response, Equally Cryptic.

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by Chad Sexington, Sep 17, 2007.

    This one is equally cryptic yet slightly more tame. Especially this line:

    It sounds like they're taking a stand-off-ish approach just because it's a 3rd party program and it's new. But it also sounds like it's ok as long as it doesn't effect the nature of the traffic (automated, forced, bots, etc.).

    I think it's ok. There are still real people behind every click, bringing potential people to view and click the adsense ads.

    In other words: Use at your own risk. If you do choose to risk it, monitor the traffic closely. We are.

    Your thoughts?

    To me, their basically saying they’ll ban you at their own discretion so in a sense their not saying anything at all. I’d advise anyone to take extreme caution if their thinking of using BlogRush to boost their AdSense earnings.

    Yea, I would say that statement is about an oxymoron. And that statement is precisely what we are trying to do, Google! This is why Chad Sexington has wrote to your company in fact. To verify this product.

    Google doesn't seem to have a straight clear rule nowadays, they always give answers like that, no true or false. At last they will probably prohibit webmasters to promote their own sites because it's considered as gaining traffic that could inflate bla bla bla... Come on Google, our visitors will only click the ads if they are interested in, and you don't have the rights to limit us to get traffic for our sites, or maybe you want to display your ads for free on our sites???

    If I were Google, I would not give a direct comment on any third party programs because that would look as though Google is endorsing these programs.

    Its just like adding links in your sidebar I guess, though you just add those links using RSS Feeds and making changes in title everytime likely with your blogrush partners.

    Even though, it cant be said illegal with the google policies, but 3rd party case might be a case here.

    Is that artificial traffic?

    My guess is that blogrush is probably considered to be against adsense TOS. The traffic does not sound very legit to me.

    Google loves SE traffic (period)

    I guess that's the way they see the web...

    **You can add some natural links, but that's only a few hits**

    I think it's clearly does not violate Adsense TOS. It does not "artificially" inflate traffic. It just posts links. Same as a blogroll but dynamic. There is no incentive to click a link or visit a site.

    The answers Goog gives are moronic.
