    That's fine with me. Right now, I'm running AdSense, Amazon, and Coop ads. It's not like I'm married to any of them -- if they stop returning dividends in one form or another, I'll switch in a heartbeat. I already did that when I switched from Chapters/Indigo to Amazon because Chapters/Indigo never had any stock so people wouldn't order from them and wait 6 weeks when they could order from Amazon and get it in 2 days.

    That said, I have no problem with the stated TOS for AdSense or the Coop whatsoever. They set whatever rules they want. If I'm fine with them, I sign up. If not, I go somewhere else.

    Which means you must potentially violate their TOS to test it. I'd send them a screenshot, not a link.

    Yahoo is acutely aware of what their competition offers and if they have half a brain their offer will be at least marginally better than G's. Huge companies do not always do the smartest thing though. I think the safest thing is "wait and see." If they begin taking market share from Google I'll jump on the Y! band wagon. A close read of their TOS may be warranted as I explain next.

    What about a banner ad linked to another page on my own site which sells items that are only listed on my directory pages? These are getting brisk traffic and the Adsense revenue for many of these pages is substantial so I think proprietary ecommerce would be more substantial yet.

    But I don't want to jump cold-turkey from Adsense to ecommerce. If Yahoo's TOS is clearer on this point I may go with them on those pages just to transition to ecommerce while maintaining ad revenues. And that would be my test of Y! because I have a long track-record for Adsense.

    I would guess LV and ad network are fine... because themes are not the same as contextual.

    At least until the ad network starts serving up relevant ads based on the content of the page they are shown on anyway... :)

    Looks like his original question was if Google would drop him if he ran LV and the co-op ads Shawn :confused:

    PS: I see you sort of answered this question with your last post but Google adlinks look real close to co-op ads if you ask me.

    Not only you, but I still get higher earnings due to double the traffic and higher CTR.
