You may use all of the product offerings that Superlinks has, but you may only have a maximum of five Super Display Ad units on at any one time plus the Super Tower and Super Footer ads.

We have found that you should not place more than four ad units on a page (even though you are allowed to place up to five on the page).

Google ADX rules state that you may only have a maximum of five ads per page.

Yes, you may still run your three adsense ad units with Super Display Ads, but it’s not recommended to place eight banners on one page. Your eCPMs may drop significantly and it’s almost considered a banner farm. We do recommend that you set up a Waterfall where you place the Google Ad Exchange tags as your primary ad tag and your google adsense tag as a backfill. Superlinks can do that for you, or you may sign up for a DFP for Small Business account located here:
http://www.google.com/doubleclick/publishers/small-business/

The ad units are only allowed to be placed on approved websites. If you try to put them in a testing environment, you must add the following to the javascript code:

<script type="text/javascript">
superLinksTest="on";
</script>

  • Our ad platform technology will only display an ad when it’s deemed relevant for that page url
  • If the browser window size is smaller than 500x500, you will not see an ad either.
  • If you have purchased traffic from unapproved sources, such as torrents, adult and any other traffic sources listed on our site content policies.

Ad code may not be altered, nor may the standard behavior, targeting, or delivery of ads be manipulated in any way that is not explicitly permitted by Superlinks. For example, Sellers may not adjust or alter information that is (a) sent from a client to a Superlinks tag or ad code or (b) sent from an Superlinks tag or ad code to a client.

Ads served to mobile applications ("In-App Ads") or sites accessed through a mobile browser may not be pre-cached, cached, or stored in any fashion. Such ads must be requested dynamically and, on sites designed for viewing on mobile devices, be refreshed when the page is refreshed.

Ad code may not be:

  • Displayed in pop-ups, pop-unders, exit windows, expanding buttons, animation or other similar methods.
  • Obscured by elements on a page.
  • Placed on any non-content-based page.
  • Placed on pages published specifically for the purpose of showing ads.
  • Integrated into a software application of any kind, including toolbars.
  • Placed on pages whose content or URL could confuse users into thinking it is associated with Google or Superlinks due to the misuse of logos, trademarks, or other brand features.
  • Placed on, within, or alongside other Google or Superlinks products or services in a manner that violates the policies of that product or service.
  • Placed in email programs or in emails, including but not limited to email newsletters, except Sellers may, at Google's and Superlink’s discretion, place ad code in webmail (i.e., email accessed through a web-based service) and webmail programs if they (i) do not send to Superlinks ad requests containing any content from the webmail, and (ii) implement the ad code pursuant to any instructions provided by Superlinks.
  • In addition, no more than 5 Ad Exchange ad units may appear per page. On sites designed specifically for viewing on a mobile device, no more than 1 Ad Exchange unit may appear per page. In mobile applications ("Apps"), at most one ad may be displayed on a single screen at a time. Thus, if the ad is fixed to the screen top or screen bottom, the number of ads is capped at one. If the page scrolls, only one ad may be visible on the screen at a time. In addition, In-App Ads may not be placed (i) underneath or adjacent to buttons or any other object such that it interferes with a user's typical interaction with the App, or (ii) in a manner that otherwise obstructs the user from viewing the content in an App. In-App Ads also may not be placed on a "dead end" screen. There must be a way to exit a screen without clicking the ad (for example, a "back", "close" or "menu" button). Otherwise, the user must be notified that the home button will exit the App.

If you are approved by Google Ad Exchange, you will most likely see Google Adsense text ads in your campaigns. You will be paid a CPM rate for these ads, unlike with Adsense, where you earn a CPC. Adsense is just one of the many advertisers bidding within the RTB auction.
