    Since my Forum is running IBP 2.0.3 now.
    It's really hard for Google Adsense Bot read all the topics, and other things.
    Therefore, I decided to do like this:
    I added a small Javascript under my Ads Code (which I don't know if it's against the TOS or not, because this is not really modify the Code)

    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
    google_page_url = "My Lofi Version Page";

    //--></script>

    Please tell me, because I don't want to be suspended by Google

    Thank you so much!

    It seems to be risky... to my understanding google will not like this as this would try to deceive google for content, hence the display of ads.

    If it is outside of the Adsense code, that's a good start. I assume the only problem would be if you were passing false information to the bot to get high paying ads. I assume that the variable you're passing in overrides what the bot would normally see. I'd think Google wouldn't like it but they may accept it.

    It is done here as well so Shawn is running the risk too. You aren't editing the google code I guess the only violation they could accuse you of breaking is what tbarr60 said about passing false information to the bot. To be on the safe side send an email and see what they say. I would be interested to know the outcome as I was thinking of doing somthing similar with phpbb.

    It would be nice if you could "help" Google focus the ads but any opportunity to do that would be an opportunity for cheating as well. I have had blog spammers place comments in my blog that caused me to get ads for poker while the focus of the blog was online advertising. I'd like to control it comments wouldn't throw the ads off but I am sure there are clowns out there that would want to serve up mesothelioma ads on their Gameboy sites.

    I'd think this is something that Google would always be refining.
