Is Messing With Adsense Other Parameters Allowed?

    w.google_ad_frameborder = null;
    w.google_ad_format = null;
    w.google_page_url = null;
    w.google_language = null;
    w.google_gl = null;
    w.google_country = null;
    w.google_region = null;
    what is region? east/west, or state?
    w.google_city = null;
    this is a great help, if you your site is reginal
    w.google_hints = null;
    enter the keywords. It works great.
    w.google_safe = null;
    w.google_encoding = null;
    w.google_ad_output = null;
    this is either html or something else, have not tested yet
    w.google_max_num_ads = null;
    I set it at 20, but not working. I guess, anything below 5 will be taken.
    w.google_ad_channel = null;
    w.google_contents = null;
    w.google_alternate_ad_url = null;
    w.google_alternate_color = null;
    w.google_color_bg = null;
    w.google_color_text = null;
    w.google_color_link = null;
    w.google_color_url = null;
    w.google_color_border = null;
    w.google_color_line = null;
    w.google_adtest = null;
    if it is yes, then no click is counted.
    w.google_kw_type = null;
    w.google_kw = null;
    w.google_num_radlinks = null;
    w.google_max_radlink_len = null;
    w.google_rl_filtering = null;
    w.google_ad_type = null;
    w.google_image_size = null;
    w.google_feedback = null;
    w.google_skip = null;

    I am also working on google_ad_height, but apparently, adsense only take certain paremeters, not all. I can make it 728x90, but 728x450

    It what I am doing allowed? I have not set up anything live yet, only on my test server.

    nope it's against their TOS to modify their adsense code

    i have seen many doing that. i even checked some posts on webmastertalk, none said it is againt TOS, but they were discussing about "hints" only, not other fields. i have tested 10% of the paramenters and will do more.

    Do you mean webmasterworld? That's where I read about it.
    There are several sites out there using this hints option, but I'm not sure Google is too happy with any site doing this without their permission.
    Perhaps this is one of the features meant for the premium advertisers?

    webmasterworld yes. it is. on there it was reported at Jun 24, the hints option are not even working for general public, even if you add it. However my pub-xxxxxxxxx account can display it now, so it is either they did not set it up well, or google just started allowing us modifying it.

    my question is in the TOS, google clearly said: "you can only paste it, no modifications, but then many are doing it. i emailed them and waiting for reply now"

    as the google TOS said "no modifications". For me it's enough not to mess with it.
