By referring to, we put Google AdSense ads above blog content (below post title) for better performance. But Google AdSense team does not quite agree with the ads placement.
QuickOnlineTips received an email from Google AdSense support pointing out the issue on their site.
In fact, Google Adsense Blog published 2 guidelines earlier and one of them is “ads shouldn’t be placed under a title or section heading in a way that implies that the ads are not ads.”
I didn’t take much attention to the guideline because I thought mine is different than the example. My AdSense ads was separated by categories and date. But it seems AdSense team think the different.
AdSense team advised QuickOnlineTips that:
“publishers may not label the Google ads with text other than ‘sponsored links’ or ‘advertisements’.”
As a result, QuickOnlineTips now put a “ADVERTISEMENT” word above the AdSense ads.
I also made the change to add “advertisement” image above my AdSense ads, although I haven’t received any email from Google AdSense about matter.
I know many AdSense publishers used put AdSense ads below post title (it’s really a heat spot!), so make the required changes before too late!
