Pilatus, Google has made some changes in their terms
Quote:
Updated - We have made revisions to this agreement in the following sections: 1, 2, 6, 11, 16.
The one change I noticed the most is the one relating to given Google the right to terminate an account that doesn't have enough valid clicks or enough valid impressions during a 2 month period.

There are a few other minor changes in the terms and conditions.

Thanks for the link, really helps to clarify what's been changed.

As for the new look, it may take a bit to get used to it, but from a design/layout perspective, it makes a lot more "sense". The "Advanced Reports" tab looks a lot like the old interface for reports so its not like they removed info. Usually I just log in to check the current day's total so I like how they have that in big text on the 1st page when you login.

The ability to rotate between different color schemes should be a winner too..... different colors capture the attention of different people so hopefully we'll see an increase in clicks/revenues.

Any ad company that is able to drop ad formats that you don't approve without telling you probably isn't a company you should be working with in the first place.

The changes to the interface are great, as is the sorting options.

The only part of the TOS changes that catches my eye is what Larwee mentioned about minimum clicks/ impressions. While this doesn't affect my network and seems logical, seeing how it's going to be implemented and how people will react is going to be interesting.

I like the new cleaner interface. It's a bit graphical now, but still loads well..

Lots of places do. Buds, RealCast, RealTech, Mammas, pretty much all 2nd and 3rd tier companies have adsense in there somewhere. and I can't think of any off the top of my head you can disable certain ads without emailing the support

That particular term/condition is phrased ambiguously, to say the least. On one hand, publishers might feel that they can't place AdSense code on pages where there is a risk that another ad network might rotate in some AdSense impressions.

On the other hand, the reverse could easily be the case; where the term serves to prevent reseller ad networks from displaying AdSense campaigns on sites that already have AdSense code in place. Second and third-tier networks are potentially required under this new condition to seek explicit approval from publishers prior to delivering resold AdSense campaigns to their individual websites.

Google does have a habit of leaving sufficient uncertainty in the phrasing of their terms to give them room to move, which seems to be the case here.
