My doubt regarding adsense terms

    "Click here to enlarge" (or) "Click on pics to load the gallery"

    Will it be like violating google adsense terms when I place such text near images in a page? (whether it is hub or blog) Will google consider it like I'm encouraging clicks on google ads? (in hubs some image ads come near to our hub images, and placement goes random)

    Please, somebody explain me. It will be better if you can explain with examples of own experience. Have you ever received warning from google regarding this?

    Don't try to game the system. It will only cost you in the end.

      No, please try to understand my question. Forgive me if my english looks funny. This is the case, consider if I'm posting an image that is originally a wallpaper of 1024x768 pixels, you all know that hubpages is showing images of 520 pixels to the maximum. HP saves the original, larger image in different location. (resized image will have f520.jpg at the end) So, you can understand there can be a text saying "Click on the image to enlarge". I'm seeing many hubs having it already. I'm just asking a doubt as I thought of it. I'm aware of HP ad placements and also yieldbuild. Thanks to quotations.

    I think what weblog is asking is whether the ad placement carried out by hubpages through its company yieldbuild might be violating the Google terms of service because they appear next to the caption beneath some images which reads "click here to enlarge".. This is not gaming the system because in fact we have no control over the ad placement.

    However I think there is not that much to worry about because many ad impressions actually belong to Hubpages and not the author, so if anyone is going to get a warning from Google it is probably HP. And if they are told to change things they will. If you weblog get a warning I would explain the situation to them, namely that you have no say on where the ad is placed.

    Weblog,
    Providing you are talking about Hugpages - I trust HP staff sorting it out and don't bother with this.

      That is a normal doubt. I talked about hubpages. But, also worried of my blogs. In HP we can't make a photo link to other page, but "Click to enlarge" quote is quite normal in photo galleries. Thats why I raised the question about it.

    lol

    Well, I would think most of your subjects have already "clicked to enlarge" so I wouldn't worry about it.

      Yes, I know. I came here to ask a serious doubt about adsense terms. It is not like gaming the system as Inspirepub said.

          You can conclude I'm weak in language(english). Actually, I know I am. I think you had no effort to clear my doubts rather making fun with me. It's ok.

    I think you are safe if the "click to see full size image" is in the ALT text of the image, so that it only appears when you roll over the image.  If you have similar text in the caption, I suppose it is a bit of a gray area.  It might be a good idea to contact the AdSense team directly.

      Thank you. Yes, I have already sent mail to adsense support regarding this.

      Is this the place for what you said? I was expecting somebody to clear my doubts seriously. This forum title says: Need Help? Ask here. Or is this going on like hubbers hang out?

        You got several serious answers. I was making a joke about the fact that in many of the photographs of women in the hubs you write - the women have had breast implants.

        They have been "enlarged" smile

        A joke. big_smile

          Actually, Thanks for the Joke. And, please take my apology if I've offended you in someway. I'm yet to improve in english. This is what I did not understand "Well, I would think most of your subjects...". Otherwise, I always enjoy good humor. I don't even mind if the humor is bad or black. I can now realise what do u mean by 'subjects' and I'm happy to know you are also visiting my hubs. Thanks for everything. smile

    weblog: you got an answer from the HubPages team, the comment left by pauldeeds.

    If you don't enjoy the humor of the other posts, I suggest you ignore them.  If Paul's answer does not answer your questions, I suggest you do what he says in his post and contact the AdSense team.

      Actually, Stacie...I'm not talking about enjoying humor. But, I seriously did not understand what Mark said and I have frankly told about my poor english. That's it. It is not anymore about getting serious. I have good sense of humor. I'm aware of my necessity in improving my english. Thank you all.

    Come on Weblog,
    Take it easy. I too don't understand a half of jokes coming at me, I just let them go. Turning defensive never brings any benefits smile

      Misha, I was just explaining my side. Also, I feel little ashamed when I can't understand a joke. It's a sign showing me I have to improve. I think tolerance is the good friend of humor. I'm OK after I understood it's just a joke. Anyway, thank you. smile
