    Hi,
    Can we add google code in the email news letters sent from my site.
    I will be sending html news letters to my users once in a month.
    Can i add google code in the emails so that we can get extra income.

    I dont think it is possible to do so right now since the mediapartnerbot would need to be able to crawl your email messages and that might turn into a privacy issue. But there is a interesting thread here .

    In the TOS it says NO to emails with G code as far as I understand.

    Correct. I also asked them once if it would come soon. They said no to that as well. But I asked about a year ago. Currently though you are not allowed to do adsense in newsletters.

    you can ONLY put adSense on pages that google can crawl, so thats webpages only, not in emails, not in applications, not in offline webpages.

    You could just stick an i-frame in the email though, with the target URL being an actual page of an actual site.

    I don't see why that wouldn't be allowed.

    You aren't displaying the adsense in the email... Only in the frame within it.

    So you set up your newsletter here...
    www.yourdomain.com/newsletter.html

    In the email you make an i-frame, tyhe target of it being www.yourdomain.com/newsletter.html

    They can't ban you from adsense for that otherwise all I would have to do is send out a mass email with a competitors site in an i-frame.

    No adsense code is kept in the email - You can't get banned for it.
    If you can be banned, that's a real easy way of fu**ing up your competition.

    Be aware that using iframes in e-mails might be having difficulties software-like. A lot is not accepted by the software and spyware / virus or other scanners.

    WFT?!?!?!?
    Maybe if you ventured out of adsense you'd see I'm not like that.

    How can you get banned for it?!?!?!

    If you could I could f*ck up every one of my competitors and leave them unable to generate revenue.

    I have a page and I put adsense on it.
    Then, someone decides to send out an email newsletter about SEO.
    Let's say that they want to reference something from my site within an I-frame.

    You're telling me I would get banned for that?
    Get f**king real mate.

    No adsense ID is in the email at all.
    It's two seperate pages.

    You clearly can't get your head around the idea of an i-frame so I'll leave you to it mate.

    Outlook/Thunderbird etc. is just a browser when it receives html mail.

    I don't see why they wouldn't allow it.

    No Google ad or Google search box may be displayed on any domain parking websites, pop-ups, pop-unders, or in any email.
    Hence the word any email!!!

    If someone were to click a link/ad in the e-mail, would the referer be the included website or something else?

    I guess that's the issue with ads rendered in an e-mail client's rowser.

    teheheh, I get the "idea of an iframe", my main site has 3 of them on one page... ooo aint I lucky... but just cos the adSense code is in a HTML file on a server and not in the body of the email makes no difference... the ad is still IN the email, it is visible in the email.

    Someone using an iFrame to put your site in their email would not get you banned. but gurulakshman's question was that he wanted to include the ad in an email, not a whole site in a frame.

    Lets not fight, gurulakshman, there is 2 schools of thought on this one, I recommend you email google and ask. They reply quickly and will give you a clear yes or no. Tell them about the iFrame idea as both myself and SEbasic agree that adSense code in the email HTML body is not allowed.

    Google do not mind you emailing them, infact on my last email they said
    "Thank you for your interest in complying with AdSense policy"

    Post what they say here, as I would be interested if this is indeed allowed.

    :) point made...

    but I thought you were suggesting that he makes a page, with a google ad on it, and then includes it in the email as a iFrame... either way, think he should email them and ask :)

    Even if they say yes tho, the success rate of an iFrame in an email is going to be low, as most email proggs / firewall apps will block it as the iFrame can be used to abuse holes in IE's security.

    I would recomend good clear links back to your site, and then have ads on those pages.

    Maybe stick SEbasic's ad in the e-mail to Google to illustrate the point :) (Ask them to click as well to support his efforts.)
