I finally got around to sit down and do what all Google Adsense publishers are supposed to do. Read the new Terms of Service, understand it and implement it. But like all blind chicken, I never read the agreement, accepted it and thought it is not important. Well, I am not the only one who do that. My blog buddy who is a lawyer does that too. Hehehe.
Few days back, my webmaster, Bryan also alerted me that we cannot place a Google ad immediately after our title. Again, I never really read the terms. Thanks to Bryan, I have no taken off the 468 x 60 ad which I used to place on my blog post. Previously, it was sandwiched between the title and the post, blended so well.
But now, if I understand what I read, Google says we have to make the ads to look like an ad and not fool our readers. So, I added a light coloured border to all my ads to be on the safe side. Now, I am using the 250×250 format in my post on the right side of the title.
The other freaky thing about Google Adsense is the implementation of the email for Adsense. Each time, we can only log in to one account. I do not use my gmail account for my Adsense. Since I have a PC and Mac, now I rely on them to read different things. One is to log in to my Adsense, one to login to my Gmail/Webmaster Central/Blogger account. And why is it freaky? Because it is like Google has infiltrated every part of our lives. I shall not elaborate on this but these sort of control makes me very paranoid.
