I have pondered weather it is permissible by Google to display Adsense ads on a page that has had an iframe forever.

I have a blog post that displays Google Adsense ads, an embedded contact form from a third party, and my own YouTube video using an iframe.

Is this violating Google's policy in anyway?

  • Unfortunately, as far as I can see, "yes". It violates g's policy Mar 4 '16 at 12:30
  • Can you please elaborate on that because I got two different answers here. Goyllo made a good point that Dsiqus is embedded on sites using an iframe. I just want to be sure Mar 10 '16 at 5:36

It is totally OK.

Google own product Blogger using Google plus comments in iframe. Disqus and Facebook also display comments in iframe. It violates only, when ads shown under iframe

  • Thanks man. I never looked at it that way. I really appreciate you answering my question. Gob bess Mar 10 '16 at 5:32

As far as I understand:

There is a main website A (whose address is seen by the visitor, in the browser), and the AdSense code can only be placed directly in that website A.

If there is a website B, that is inserted into A using iFrame, and B contains AdSense code, Google considers it invalid, and you will not get any money when somebody clicks on the ad (even though the ad inside B is always displayed).

It does not matter, if A and B have the same or a different owner, or if they are both on the same domain. The ad inside B is simply "an ad placed in an iframe", which is against AdSense policy.
