Google Adsense Ads Below Post Tiltle are Allowed

Saturday, May 2, 2009

Here is a point of discussion that we should do it or not. I personally feel it really great for good CTR. But at the same time, It's against TOS of Google, if did not clearly put any text above ads or tried to confuse the visitors of your blog or website. Blogger only provides you option to put ads between posts. A bad and against TOS example to have ads just below the post is shown in the following image provided as an example from Google team.

Adsense Below Post
In this image, there is nothing between post title and ads, which confuse visitors and give them wrong impression of having actual information rather than ads. So never try this way of having ads on your website just to increase your CTR. So what are the other ways to have ads below the post titles without violating TOS of Google. Following images shows how you can do that in a fair way.

Both the images put some text before the ads begins. The right hand side example image is much better than the left one. What Google says is that

Ads shouldn't be placed under a title or section heading in a way that implies that the ads are not ads.
So you can keep the ads below the post but keep TOS in mind otherwise it will not just increase your CTR but also ban your adsense account.
