    In the case of an advertiser paying for site specific CPM advertising, then it may be very nice for the advertiser. Either way, the advertiser is paying the same, but probably would appreciate the visitors.

    but the advertisers are usually not paying CPM, and most visitors just leads their conversation rate to drop, and they will wonder why

    Well, the advertisers might like it, because that's what they want visitors. And that's what you're telling them, please visit our sponsors.

    Note which forum this is in: Adsense guidelines/compliance. Adsense says no encouraging people, so it's no, no matter what the advertisers think

    If you are talking about Ad sponsors, then no.

    If you are talking about affiliate sponsors (like firefox,etc..) then yes.

    Peace,

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that would be against TOS. In my opinion, if I'm not completely sure its NOT against TOS I stay away from it.

    No it's not allowed to encourage visitor to click your ads, in any case you cannot drive attention to your ads with a such sentence or graphic elements ;)

    Most advertisers are paying to get sales/members/branding. They do NOT appreciate visitors who come to them just to support your own site. Saying "please visit my sponsors" in any way shape or form will get you banned without warning from adsense via the "invalid clicks" email when they find out, and they will... they don't have an army of PhDs for nothing. I'm sure they have a very strong algo that can flag unacceptable phrases.

    The way i understand the terms of service you can recomment refferals only but not the other types ads.. they will ban you for sure for encuraging clicks ..

    But they do allow you to recomment referalls.. they say that on the site..
