4 Useful Tips to prevent your ads from appearing alongside user-generated content that isn't compliant with Google Adsense policies

4 Useful Tips to prevent your ads from appearing alongside user-generated content that isn't compliant with Google Adsense policies

# Publish clear content guidelines and policies that your users will have to accept and adhere to in order to sign up and use your site's services.

# If you own a photo or video sharing site where users are permitted to upload adult or other non-compliant content, clearly structure your content to avoid placing your ad code in sections/categories containing this type of content. The same idea could also be easily applied to online stores with adult sections or to classifieds sites which offer adult dating classifieds.

# Ask users to tag their inappropriate content (e.g. sexually suggestive pictures or videos) as being non family-safe. This can help you perform human evaluations of potentially inappropriate content for AdSense ads. You can also try installing keyword filters for content related to adult topics, violence, or drugs, for instance. While we're unable to provide you with details about setting up these filters for your site, we recommend searching for terms such as "keyword filtering" or "content filtering" on Google.com.

# Implement spambot protection for your comment forms, forums, and guest books. If you need more information on this topic, try a Google search for "spambot protection".
