Google To Require Publishers To Agree To New AdSense Terms & Conditions

Apr 19, 2013 • 8:18 am | comments (6) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdSense

Google AdSense logoGoogle announced they have updated the Google AdSense terms and conditions.

Google did not link to the terms and conditions that are being updated but did pull out the two major changes to the legal agreement. They did also note they have "made smaller changes throughout" the document, so review it before you agree to it. But you will have to agree to it 30 days after the terms go live on April 23rd. If you don't, well, find another ad program to use on your site.

Here are the two main changes according to Google, although I cannot confirm it at this point:

  • With this new version of the Terms and Conditions, our goal has been to make them as clear and transparent as possible. As a result of this, we hope that it'll be even easier to navigate and find what you're looking for.
  • With mobile being one of the big trends in 2013 and beyond, we're expanding our Terms to cover mobile properties more specifically. We've also incorporated guidelines for using the AdMob SDK and other publisher products.

Some publishers seem concerned with the new terms but Google does this every now and then. People complain and then forget about it.

I've heard of many people who were removed from Adsense lately. Hopefully these new T&Cs make is easier to understand what not to do.

If anything, it may show where Google is heading. Mobile's a no-brainer, but what else?

Where is Jensense when you need her? She used to do such a great job of comparing the old terms with the new, and really fast, too! I would love to see her analysis on these new changes. Alas, nothing stays the same.
