I got a verified google Adsense account a few years ago when I was running my own little blog, which related to my web design business. I was able to use the same registered account to set up ads on a music website that I created, under a new dedicated domain.
Now, I'd like to use adsense on my new website, but its a little complicated as the pages are kind of hidden behind a wall.
Let me explain.
My domain is a business and has no need for AdSense on any of the main pages, but I've created a back end section (
---.com/extra/), where pages that contain adsense banners will be placed.
There is no
index page on
/extra as the sites on there are all very differently themed and I generally don't want to go to the hassle of creating the main index page. Most visitors will come via searches and social media.
Any ideas on how I can make sure Google doesn't flag my adverts for technically "hiding" my pages in this manner?
Update Is it possible that if I create an index.php page containing a list of links to my site (hiding the list with css), google will follow the links and I will not violate any terms?
Alternatively, are there any other ways to monetise a site like this without the use of banners? I like the idea of banner placement, but I'm all for trying other methods if they are more suited for my website setup.
