    think this is in the wrong forum mate :)

    I see youve used critters advice with the images and the adsense.

    Overall site isn't too impressive though, think you need more of an interface and a logo :)

    Good Luck With It!

    Looks like a winner to me! Hard not to click an ad on the front page. Also looks like a lot of work unless you feed that info from somewhere... there is a misspelled link. Fridays's

    I would add a "bookmark this page" javascript thingy. Seems like something fans may return to.

    and change <title>Home</title>

    Thanks! Especially for the typo correction...I input all the info manually, I am not saavy enough to feed it in from somewhere else :(. The good words mean alot, now I can finally get some sleep, I have been at it thru trial and error all week. Critter's advice about the images near the ads lit up a bulb, it looked brilliant on his/her (sorry!) site. Going to look into the finding the js code for the bookmark thing. Know of any resources? Maybe in my web editor?

    Here is one that adds the current page.

    <span style='cursor:hand;text-decoration:underline;'onclick='window.external.AddFavorite(location.href,document.title);'>
    add this page to your favorites</span>
    Code (markup):
    There are others that specify a url.

    Isn't it 3 ad units, and one link unit? Please correct me if I am wrong. I have:

    (1) Leaderboard (728x90)

    (2) 125 x 125 Buttons
    = three ad units

    and

    (1) Link Unit

    I cannot control how many ads they put inside each unit, so am I correct in assuming I am not in violation??

    You are in violation. It's the number of UNITS, not ADS, that's in question. You cannot have more than 3 in a page, and I count 4 (leaderboard on top, the link unit and 2 125s at the bottom)

    Also, I don't think you're allowed to put just links on a page that serves AS ads. You have no content.

    But terrific use of the images with the ads, I'll give you that.

    "Google AdSense program policies allow you to place up to three ad units and one link unit on any page."

    I dont know, I just got this from the adsense page. As for "Also, I don't think you're allowed to put just links on a page that serves AS ads. You have no content", I think you are corrrect, I have to change that now. Thanks .

    My mistake about the number of ads.

    The email from Google, was it specifically about the number of ads or the whole page in general? I would've figured I was right at least about the content portion of my last post?

    My email asked
    "I was wondering if you could take a look at my site and tell me if it is in compliance with the ToS. I wanted to be certain. Thank you."

    Their response was
    "Thanks for the email.

    The pictures on your site does not incite users to click. As such you can
    keep them on your site.

    Please note that we monitor all sites displaying Google ads or an AdSense
    for search box to ensure compliance with our program policies. Any site
    that is in violation of our policies will be contacted and asked to remove
    the Google code."

    Good enough response to me! Also, I added a few things, can you tell me what you think? Thanks!
