PayPerPost does not allow ads embedded in posts

I got a post rejected last night. And this is the first time I get this reason :

Thanks for your post!

While the content is fine, we are unable to approve your post because PPP entries should not have other ads inside the post, and this entry has generated AdSense links under the post title. You may have these generated ads before the Post Title and after the post, but not after the Post Title or in the middle of its content.

Please fix and re-submit within 3 days!

Well, it is actually a fluke accident. I was changing template on my personal blog at 5xmom and was experimenting where to put my ads. I placed a 468×60 banner right after each title. What I was trying to do was to place it in between posts like what this blog is doing. But the reviewer probably came by at the same time and caught it.

So, folks, see that your do not have any things in your post contents if you write paid posts. And that includes the PPP Review My Post referral button because Blogitive does not allow it.

For those of you who adds a little block of Adsense into your post, you may have to take it off. Therefore, it is a matter whether you want to maintain your adsense placement or writing paid post. Looks like we have to make that decision, right?

You can follow the thread on the forum about this advertisement issue.

Here’s what Karen of PayPerPost said :

Hey folks,

Here’s the ToS that covers this:

Elements on a page must not obscure any portion of a blog post pertaining to an opportunity and the posting must be visible, readable and reasonably coherent.

We purposely put ‘elements’ so this can cover links, pictures, pop ups, ads (of any kind), issues created by formatting errors, clashing colors/backgrounds, and so on. To place an unrelated ad within the post also creates troubles with the ‘reasonably coherent’ portion of that ToS. If I’m a reader of the post – I’ve been exposed to 3 or more different topics (ie: links) between the title and the first paragraph of the same post. Not very coherent.

A post consists of title, body or text, and related comments. No where in that space should there be any ‘element’ that detracts from the advertiser’s requested topic.

Well, you know what? I suddenly have a ban last night and I am wondering if the advertiser is mad with me for placing a competitive ad along with their paid post. Ah, never mind, damage has been done. Let’s learn to avoid it.

    Welcome to the club! I kena a few times liao and removed nuffnang from contents spot altogether. One thing though…I find that Loudlaunch is the most lenient so far. Never had any issues with me even though immediately after my Loudlaunch disclosure comes preview my post and adsense.

    Yes, LoudLaunch don’t even to bother to check your post manually. they just track you with their codes, but I got one post rejected because they said i post it in a blog not suited for that review.

    Was just thinking of whether to chang my template and take down all the ads , as it’s not picking up on the earning fast enough and thought of just concentrating on writing paid post.

    Like looks like no choice but ops for a cleaner look without ads blog.

    I recently had this same problem: Here’s what I did to fix it:

    Even if you don’t use this plugin, you may be able to apply this to your template. I’d be willing to help if you have problems.
