It’s now OK to run Adsense with other contextual ad programs

Jennifer Slegg reported in that she has confirmed with the Google Adsense team that it’s now okay to run Adsense on the same page with other contextual ad programs, provided that they do not resemble or mimic Adsense ads. She also wrote that Adsnese policy will eventually be updated to reflect this change.

Relaxing this restriction shows that Google is confident that Adsense is superior to the other contextual ad programs out there. It remains to be seen that other contextual ad programs, most notably YPN, will relax their own restrictions.
