AdSense Strict Program Policy On Misuse of IFramed Ads

adsense policy changeJust today an hour ago at Jun 10 11:55AM, the Google [a href="http://groups.google.com/group/inside-adsense/browse_thread/thread/c110ff7cf1ff977f" target="_blank"]Adsense Program Policy Team expressed[/a] their serious concerns on the use of IFramed Ads by web owners. They also have made some changes to their program policy and I would suggest that you kindly read the new terms and conditions to keep yourself updated. Adsense marked the HTML tag iframe almost unacceptal without legal  approval from Google. They also prohibited altering the behavior, targeting, or appearance of AdSense ads without explicit approval from Adsense.

[a name='more'][/a]

This is what Adsense Program Policy mentioned at Inside AdSense Google Group today:

Improperly iframed ads are a disservice to our advertisers since the ad
itself can be obscured. Not only are they not viewable, these
implementations can lead to accidental clicks if these hidden ads are
placed in a location that users frequently click. Please see below for
an example of a partially hidden banner.
Hidden iframed ads is one form of misuse. The other is cross-domain
iframing abuse. Cross-domain iframes are used to frame content from a
different site. This type of implementation can allow other sites to
frame ads that belong to another site without the publisher’s knowledge.
As a result, we’ve modified our Ad Behavior policy to the following:
AdSense code may not be altered, nor may the standard behavior,
targeting or delivery of ads be manipulated in any way that is not
explicitly permitted by Google. This includes but is not limited to the
following: clicking Google ads may not result in a new browser window
being launched, nor may Google ads be placed in an IFRAME.
We’re aware of certain ad implementations that require the valid use of
iframes. As per our program policies, exceptions to our policies are
permitted only with authorization from Google.
With our updated language, our goal is to be more proactive about
enforcing the misuse of iframes. Iframing is not only deceptive when
improperly implemented, but it often leads to unintended behavioral
outcomes that result in policy violations, such as the double-serving
of ads. As our program policies also note, we reserve the right to
disable ad serving to sites and/or accounts that fail to comply with
these policies without permission from Google. To best adhere to our
policies and experience better targeting results, we recommend pasting
our ad code directly into the source of your web page HTML.

 

I request new bloggers to kindly be very careful on reading tutorials where AdSense Ad Customization is discussed. The best is that you avoid all such tricks and tutorials where AdSense Ads are personalized to suit your blog template using CSS, HTML or any other web technology. Customize your AdSense ads at AdSense Ad setup page only or in the AdSense Widget available on your Blogger Page elements.

Hide Label Tags and Author Name In Blogger Posts

Replace URL OF Selected Post with the Link of the page where you want to hide label tags.

    6.  Just 6-7 lines below the code you search for in step#4, you will find this,

</span>

    7. Just after it paste the code below,

</b:if>

    8. Save your template and visit that selected page and you will see that the labels are gone.

Hiding Author Name and Date Time On Selected Pages

Inside your template search for this,

<span class='post-author vcard'>

and just below it you will find a large code slightly similar to the one shown below,

<span class='post-author vcard'>
        <b:if cond='data:top.showAuthor'>
          <data:top.authorLabel/>
          <span class='fn'><data:post.author/></span>
        </b:if>
      </span>

      <span class='post-timestamp'>
        <b:if cond='data:top.showTimestamp'>
          <data:top.timestampLabel/>
        <b:if cond='data:post.url'>
          <a class='timestamp-link' expr:href='data:post.url' rel='bookmark' title='permanent link'><abbr class='published' expr:title='data:post.timestampISO8601'><data:post.timestamp/></abbr></a>
        </b:if>
        </b:if>
      </span>

 

You just need to add the following codes before and after the bolded blue lines as shown below,

<b:if cond='data:blog.url != "URL OF Selected Post"'>

<span class='post-author vcard'>
        <b:if cond='data:top.showAuthor'>
          <data:top.authorLabel/>
          <span class='fn'><data:post.author/></span>
        </b:if>
      </span>

      <span class='post-timestamp'>
        <b:if cond='data:top.showTimestamp'>
          <data:top.timestampLabel/>
        <b:if cond='data:post.url'>
          <a class='timestamp-link' expr:href='data:post.url' rel='bookmark' title='permanent link'><abbr class='published' expr:title='data:post.timestampISO8601'><data:post.timestamp/></abbr></a>
        </b:if>
        </b:if>
      </span>

</b:if>

 

Now again you will have to replace URL OF Selected Post with your selected page link.

Save your template and say bingo!

How to hide them on more than one page?

If you want to hide the labels and date and time on another page also then just repeat the same process. For example if you want to hide them on three selected pages then do this for date and time,

<b:if cond='data:blog.url != "URL OF Selected Post -1"'>

<b:if cond='data:blog.url != "URL OF Selected Post -2"'>

<b:if cond='data:blog.url != "URL OF Selected Post -3"'>

<span class='post-author vcard'>
        <b:if cond='data:top.showAuthor'>
          <data:top.authorLabel/>
          <span class='fn'><data:post.author/></span>
        </b:if>
      </span>

      <span class='post-timestamp'>
        <b:if cond='data:top.showTimestamp'>
          <data:top.timestampLabel/>
        <b:if cond='data:post.url'>
          <a class='timestamp-link' expr:href='data:post.url' rel='bookmark' title='permanent link'><abbr class='published' expr:title='data:post.timestampISO8601'><data:post.timestamp/></abbr></a>
        </b:if>
        </b:if>
      </span>

</b:if>

</b:if>

</b:if>

Do the same for hiding label tags as mentioned in step#4

How To Post HTML Code In Blogger Comments Form?


PS: This Post is an experiment and not a new one
While writing tutorials or asking a question, sometimes it becomes very necessary to post html and javascript codes in your blog comment forms powered by Blogger. You have seen many authors posting HTML effectively but when some of you try to do it, you get an error. This is because Blogger Comment form doesn't support direct posting of HTML and JavaScript. In order to help you to do that we will need to change/encode the same code into a text and then post it effectively without any error. The Tool below will help you to change HTML characters to simple text, which could be easily inserted in your blogger template and comment form. You can also use it to convert your adsense code into an embeddable form. It converts special characters in this way,[a name='more'][/a]
  • '<' becomes '&lt;'
  • '>' becomes '&gt;'
  • '"' (double quote) becomes '&quot;'
  • ''' (single quote) becomes '&#039;'
  • '&' becomes '&amp;'
THE HTML ENCODER: Start Converting Now!

Surprise! MBT Developed Its First Facebook HTML IFrame WebPage

Facebook Iframe TabAfter hours of trial and error and coding and coding and just coding, Alhamdulillah I succeeded in crafting and developing MBT's first Fans Welcome Page on Facebook. This was indeed one of the most enjoying designing thing I came across so far. Designing blogger templates, widgets, icons, buttons is more like a hobby now but taking a step further and branding a service and product on Facebook was a complete new experience. The Facebook application used in building this Welcome Page is called [a href="http://www.facebook.com/LouiseSteinerOnline#!/apps/application.php?id=190322544333196" target="_blank"]Static HTML IFrame Tabs[/a].  My coming tutorials on this are close to never shared before on any blog, forum or even the Facebook developers page and most often this is done at premium levels but[a name='more'][/a] you will be really excited to implement it to your blogs once we publish the series Guide for free. Together will we make the blogging platform even more appealing and worth exploring. Your motivation has helped me a lot in taking this step and I will need your valuable support always. I am really excited to share this unique "Facebook Welcome Page"  of MBT. So let's have a look of it:

PS: Please view it using any browser but not IE. The Page is Compatible with Mozilla, Chrome, Safari and even slightly with IE8+

 

[a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/My-Blogger-Tricks/147104632016744" target="_blank"]MBT Fans Welcome Page[/a]

 

It's 4.29 AM of night, 14th June 2011 and I am really tired to share the tutorial at this moment. I will publish series of posts on this topic with free and unique Code designs and will make sure that the coding is made as easy in implementation as possible. I would be more happy viewing your Welcome Pages with different colors and tastes. Peace and blessings. :)

Need your Feedback on this!

I will highly appreciate your precious feedback on this latest finding. Your comments mean a lot. If you have any idea you can share before we publish the tutorials then please share it openly with all of us. I would love to hear how you like it.
