    Would the difference between this and other cases be the fact that there's a border around the image? That places a visible line, in addition to the space, between the image and the ad (which I thought was the general consensus as to what's "OK" in Googleland). If the image happens to have an arrow integrated, so be it. It's still just an image, and following the rules, if I understand them correctly.

    Googleland no longer gives such approval. They used to, but not anymore (regardless of lines, borders, single image, multiple images, irrelevant image, relevant image, 3px separation, iframe, wp plugin).

    In fact, they've been cracking down on some sites that use this technique, sending out warning emails...

    They have now removed that image from next to their ads in their template - can't see it on any story - even in the archive.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention, everyone. I can confirm that this kind of ad implementation is against our program policies. We ask that publishers not place individual images alongside their Google ads.

    The issue with pcfreunde.de has been resolved quickly and we're happy to have them in our network.

    I hope that clears up any confusion!

    question: how far away must images or even text be from a google adsense? What if you use bad HTML coding and accidentally place an image too close to a google ad? Are borders allowed to seperate the adsense and have text below? I want to be perfectly clear on the rules

    Need_incomes, I very much doubt that you are going to get a straight answer. Or if you do, it will be news to a lot of people ...

    well,
    I cant see any violation of terms there. The image and the adblock are separated by lines.

    It's still a little weird though, because the page itself caused more problem than where it was placed. The image, for those that got a look at it had an arrow on it that was pointing to the ad. It was not made clear which part was in violation, the image itself or it's placement.

    i think its solved now ?

    Source : http://adsense.blogspot.com/2006/12/ad-and-image-placement-policy.html

    Ad and image placement: a policy clarification

    We've recently received a number of emails from publishers asking how we feel about the placement of images near Google ad units. There's been some confusion on this issue, and so we turned to our policy team to set the record straight.

    Can I place small images next to my Google ads?

    We ask that publishers not line up images and ads in a way that suggests a relationship between the images and the ads. If your visitors believe that the images and the ads are directly associated, or that the advertiser is offering the exact item found in the neighboring image, they may click the ad expecting to find something that isn't actually being offered. That's not a good experience for users or advertisers.

    Publishers should also be careful to avoid similar implementations that people could find misleading. For instance, if your site contains a directory of Flash games, you should not format the ads to mimic the game descriptions.

    What if I place a space or a line between my images and my ads? Would that work?

    No. If the ads and the images appear to be associated, inserting a small space or a line between the images and ads will not make the implementation compliant.

    Does this mean I can't place ads on pages with images?

    You can definitely place Google ads on pages containing images -- just make sure that the ads and images are not arranged in a way that could easily mislead or confuse your visitors. For example, if you run a stock photography site with a catalog of thumbnail images, don't line the ads up with the thumbnails in a way that could be misleading. Consider using a full border around your ads or changing your ad colors, for example.

    What do unacceptable implementations look like?

    Here are some examples that wouldn't comply with our policies.
