    THANKS!

    I just realized I am in some serious violation right now because I have an add under a drop-down menu. I am probably going to ditch the drop-down and switch to direct menu links to pages with links listed… And I JUST got my blog looking how I wanted it :)…

    I appreciate the heads up!

    Good list, except for the last one. AdSense does allow us to place ads in newsletters with their native Feedburner service.

    1. Ankit Kumar says

      Ya,but it’s placed by Feedburner, and i’m talking about manual placement of Google ads in newsletter. For example sending google ads in newsletter powered by Aweber or mailchimp is against adsense policy.

    Hello,

    Well, Google Adsense is a big big source of income for us, but with lack of knowledge, it is just a waste of time. As, in my past I lost my first account due to invalid activity and that was my biggest mistake.

    But after that mistake, I learn a lot reading number of tips online and now, I got my new adsense account and I am making some money with it and I hope it will increase with time.

    Btw, Great Post! Will help many.

    Cheers.
