In the Google's Ad placement policies stated that the limitation is "up to 3". However there are lots of sites having 6 or even more ads per one single page. Moreover on some site there is information that the limitation is actually - 6.

So I'm a bit confused. How the things in real?

  • I am here just wondering, what makes you trust some random blogger with a 90s-themed site over official Google provided guidelines? Even then, if you read it correctly he mentions himself: However you may not be allowed to show more than 3 Link units per page as a normal AdSense Publisher..

  • @edvinas.me It was just an example. I'd trust official docs, but I trust my eyes: as I mentioned above there is sites with lots of AdSense ads. May 26, 2014 at 14:24

    I am not sure what you are looking at- but the Google limitation is for AdSense ads and does not include ads from other ad networks as far as I know. That is- with some limitation. Google does seem to check these too, but respects your right to have more than one advertising network and just wants to limit the ad/content ratio to something of value to the user.

Yo can have 3 link units and 3 ad units per page, as described in their support documentation:

Please keep in mind that a maximum of three standard ad units, three link units, and two search boxes may be placed on one webpage.

Also these limitations are enforced upon normal AdSense Publishers, I believe premium accounts include a larger number of ad & link units.
