    Hi,
    SEMrush
    I just wanna know if my FAQ page on my site Squarehippies.com will break the TOS if I post something like this:

    Q: How can I support the site?

    A: You can support the site by adding it to your bookmark and visit it regularly to check on any updates. That's good enough for me! :) Also, you can visit some of the sponsors featured thoughout the website.

    YOu should read the adsense TOS.
    Plainly states that you can not in any way shape or form induce your visitors to click on adsense ads.
    So putting that statement anywhere on your site is a big no-no and will get your adsense account disabled at the least, banned at the most.

    Also, you can visit some of the sponsors featured thoughout the website.

    This is the major flaw

    In fact, delete that old whole question out of the FAQ

    Thanks guys. I admit it was obviously a stupid question. Thanks so much for your concern. I go hide myself in the corner now.

    Do not feel bad- There is NO stupid question if asked upfront- You asked if it was misleading which means you have common sense to check first.

    We can help you from getting the dreaded email from google- The ones that should hide are the ones who agree to the tos, do some thing misleading and then commit click fraud.

    Right now, you have 28 posts, but I'll say welcome to DP anyway!. You've passed the hard part. Keep asking questions! We have all been there.

    Thanks so much Corina, I'm still less than a week joining this forum but already I've learned so much here. You guys have been very very helpful! :) My AdSense has been improving day by day. Thanks again!
