link exchange question

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by dsick, Oct 9, 2009.

    it says in the rules that i can't participate in adsense if im involved in link exchange programs... i am involved in a few of those, if i cancel all of my programs in the future can i put adsense on that site then?

    i only use link exhanges on blog sites, but when i get enough traffic i am going to implement adsense...


    edits .. i posted this in the wrong forum should go in the guidelines

    They can only track the referrer of your traffic after you place the ads on your site. So if you have no shady traffic coming after the ads were placed, everything should be fine.

    Link exchange with legit websites is allowed IMO. Do you have any source where it's mentioned that they do not allow it?

    Google gives more importance to one way links and frowns upon the link exchange itself but it is definitely against link sales...

    im talking about those sites like easyhits4u where you buy clicks.... i wouldnt use this on a normal site but it has seemed to attract traffic on blogs in the past, im not exchanging links with other web sites.. i clicked on there site and they click on mine, and i can earn credits

    Tried easyhits once but found that my bounce rate hit sky high and the quality is really low. It wouldn't help in Adsense earnings in the first place.

    i just noticed the title said link exchange instead of traffic exchange haha

    i find that... traffic ex's attract people to come to my blog.. because when im looking in the search results i go to the one with more hits first.. squiddo used to show hit counters next to the blog in the search results... i wouldnt do this to get more adsense earnings i would do it to bump my page visits up on sites like squiddo...

    i was wondering if i start one of these programs.. then maybe 6 mo down the line close my accounts then put adsense on the site will this still be breaking the terms?

    i dont know if overture or the others have this same policy
