Boost Earnings from Adsense for Search

by SMD 

UPDATE: I’ve taken down this story. Thanks to Miha for suggesting that I double check whether or not it was okay with google to create links to Adsense for search results. The Answer is NO. My appologies that I didn’t double-check before I put up the story. It doesn’t make sense to me but I’m not going to argue with them.

Another note: this is the second time I have emailed AdSense support and both times I have received a speedy, polite and on target response. So don’t hesitate to contact them if you have any doubts about the Adsense program.

Here’s the email exchange:

Hello Jon,

I’m wondering if it is okay to do something like this:

this would be a story on my website and I would say research ‘widgets’ on
Google and widgets would be a hyperlink to a search results page from my
Adsense for search page.

Let me know if this technique violates any Adsense terms or is not

    Is this technique OK with Google?

  2. Jon on June 12th, 2007 4:21 pm

    Miha, I couldn’t find anything to suggest it wasn’t okay in their terms, but after seeing your comment, I sent them an email asking directly. I’ll post the reply when I get it.

    The idea is great, I may add a google-search link to my technorati-links. You may add the rel=”tag” attribute to all links to the search result pages also to get them indexed by technorati & co. regards, Markus

    Jon, nice idea, pity it isn’t allowed, although as you say not too sure why they don’t allow it,

  5. Jon on June 12th, 2007 4:22 pm

    I’ve been thinking about it and the best reason I can think of for not allowing it is that you could use the links anywhere: in emails, or RSS, so they would really loose control of the search service.
