My adsense Tos Policy change alert went off and I messaged my friend Jen and she said to look at her site-

Sure enough she has all the info

Basically now not only can you not run competing contextual products you also cant run anything that looks similar. This REALLY surprises me

Maybe next Google will come out with a TOS change that if you run anything but Adsense you will be desisted from the Google search engine. Ya its that bad.

  1. That is really … prohibitive. No ShoeMoney ads with Google ads, none of those Clickbank adsense lookalike ads. They’re bent on pushing people to other ad networks aren’t they.

  2. lucky you sold out the shoemoney ad networks before this happened, might not have done a good of a deal before this

  3. Google’s stock is grossly overpriced, their predicted earnings by analysts are way too high, so if they want to prevent a huge stock price crash they have to do something desperate which is showing.. Frankly, when you’re already in the 1st place and people expect you to go higher and higher there’s not much you can do other than diworseify your industry (yea! google phone!google tv!google radio!google cereals!google cars!) and try desperate moves like this

  4. […] Adsense Policy Update Published January 18th, 2007 in Adsense, Google Tags: Adsense, Google. Found this information from Shoemoney tonight about a huge change in Adsense policy. The whole article can be found through Jensense which goes into details. […]

  5. I don’t think it’s that huge change!
    Anyway, the adwords clients have the 1st priority and G is doing its best to be more than qualified…

  6. Perhaps this could increase payouts if you do decide to use adsense and only adsense because of happy AdWords customers?

  7. […] New Google AdSense Policies: [JenSense] This has got some people up in arms and is being discussed here, here, and here among other places. Google is playing the role of the playground bully. Basically Google is saying if you use AdSense you can’t display contextual ads from any of our competitors. Other updates put scraper sites on watch. […]

  8. What?! That doesn’t make any sense…

    I wonder how the TOS will be 1 or 2 years from – “You can’t run ANY advertisement on your site other than AdSense – and, yeah, you can’t link to anything unless it’s owned by Google”.

  9. […] Jeremy Schoemaker of had this to say: This REALLY surprises me.  Maybe next Google will come out with a TOS change that if you run anything but Adsense you will be desisted from the Google search engine. Ya its that bad. […]

  10. And that’s exactly why they did it.

    They are eliminating the options for webmasters.

    If you can’t split test, then you’ll never know if other things payout more- and that’s what they want.

  11. I wrote an article this week on how the revenues are slumping as well. This thing is becomign broken and they’re gonna have to fix it. I don’t blame the engineers or even founders of Google. It’s the corporate types that came on after the IPO and started telling people what to do adn how to make more money. When your job goals are profit driven things liek this happen……

  12. This is just another attempt by Google to control every dam thing. First you cant buy links, (even though G sell them) Now this crap. It is time to look for something else, its just a matter of time till my account gets cancelled for some made up TOS issue.
