Place Images Above The Google ads.

"The more we know, the more we don't know..."

This is an reply e-mail from Jeff.... one of the Google's support team members.
I did e-mail him a few days ago regarding the images above my google's adsense.
And maybe this can help you too.

So, here you are...


Thank you for your email. I understand that you would like to know if
publishers may place images above their Google ads. Unfortunately, we are
unable to provide a blanket answer, as it truly depends on the
circumstances of each implementation. In some instances, images may be
placed above the ads without any harm.

However, there is also the possibility of attributing "undue attention" to
the ads if the images placed above ads are misleading or seem to be
directly associated with the advertisers and their offerings.

If users click on ads without the intention of converting to customers, advertiser
costs can be artificially inflated. Drawing undue attention to ads is in
violation of our program policies, so we are unable to sanction every
instance of this implementation.

If you choose to experiment with placing images directly above the ads, I
would strongly encourage you to maintain a "visible border" around the ad
units to reduce the possibility of confusing users.

For additional questions, we suggest you visit our AdSense Support site at . If you're unable to find an
answer to your question on our site, please feel free to reply to this

I have been wondering about implementing this technique on my web sites.

Surely the fact you are placing images inline means you are drawing undue attention?

Hi Anthony,

First, thanx for your attention about this topic. For your information, I already implemented this technique into my blog. And, the important thing is I never got a "warning" from Google regarding this technique.
So, why don't you....?

Who knows, this techique will "increase" your "online-income (adsense)"...?

Do not hesitate to contact me if you need an information. Happy Blogging!
