Check Your Source Code

In my post Technorati, AdSense and Me* a few weeks back, I explained that I had too many occurrences of the AdSense code.

I think I have resolved that problem satisfactorily. I have had to make some minor changes in the lay-out of the Blog overall. Originally, I had the ads by google link placed within the post itself. I did like the way it showed in the first three posts and not subsequent entries.

What had occurred was that in the source code the link would loop into each post on the page, and since I had shown a full weeks worth of entries... add that to the new link bar in the header and I had eight occurrences.

Another "problem" I had run into is that the link bar in the header has become a better source of revenue than the ads by google link within the posts.

Of course, I didn't want to give up either of my best revenue sources, so I shortened the page to only showing three days and moved the ads by google link to the foot of Contents. I also moved the Google Search to the footer of the entire page.

I did receive a favorable response from the people at AdSense, and they checked all of my Blogs and Webpages for compliance. They all passed.

My suggestion to anyone who uses AdSense is to make sure that you are in compliance with the Terms of Service. Don't depend on your eyes, you can only see what is on the page. Make sure to check your source code, that is what Google checks.

On Internet Explorer, open View in the toolbar, click on Source. Once the new window opens, open Edit, then Find. Type in "pub" to find out how many times it actually occurs. Since "pub" is where your AdSense code embeds your publisher number, you will know where each occurrence is located.

If you have questions as to whether or not you are in compliance, contact Google within your AdSense account. They are very good at responding, and will try to work with you as well. They know that if you make money, so will they.
