Practically all folks use Google Adsense in their websites, blogs, forums. Sometimes we also desire to try other ads like AdBrite, WidgetBucks, etc.
However we worry about the Google Adsense TOS. Because we recognize Google is very strict in its rules and can without difficultly ban the person violating its TOS.
I was likewise finding myself in the similar situation. I cherished to use AdBrite ads along with Google Adsense but was disturbed about Google TOS.
I searched a bit and found nothing satisfactory. All were in same position as me.
Thus I contacted both Adsense as well as AdBrite and it resolved my concern. Now the respond is:
YES! You Can Use Other Contextual Ad Networks on the Same Page As Google Ads but with Some Guidelines.
Here is what AdBrite says:
AdBrite has no policy against using multiple ad networks on the similar website. Many of our clients do use our service in concurrence with AdSense and other ad networks; though, we urge you contact those networks directly for their specific policies concerning multiple networks.
And here is what Google Adsense says:
AdSense publishers may display ads from other contextual ad networks on the same page as Google ads only if the formatting or color scheme of these ads is sufficiently different from the layout of the Google ads. In other words, if you choose to place non-Google ads on the same site or page as Google ads, it ought always be clear to the user that the ads are served by different advertising networks and that the non-Google ads have no association with Google. If the formats are obviously similar, we’d ask that you use special color schemes for the competing ads.
So its clear we can use both of them on the same page but the colors must be different to easily distinguish them.
