Google Adsense on a social/dating site with a section that has adult content

cgaviria used Ask the Experts™

I am working on a social/dating website. I will be using Google Adsense on my website. I also want to allow users to upload adult content, but that content will only be displayed in a certain Private Room section of the site..... which will not have any Google adsense.

Is this something that I can do by the rules with Google Adsense?

Publishers may not place AdSense code on pages with content that violates any of the Google Adsense content guidelines. Some examples include content that is adult, violent or advocating racial intolerance.
Sites with Google ads may not include or link to:
Pornography, adult or mature content
Any other content that is illegal, promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal rights of others


I know, I read that..... however I noticed the word "pages" and not "website"..... the only adult content on my site will be on pages where no google ads will reside
Sites with Google ads may not include or link to - that reads to me that you cannot do it...

with questions like this the only correct answer you will get is if you email adsense support and explain your situation.

Everything else people post here will be guessing. I would "guess" yes, you can do it as long as there is no adult content on the same page where adsense is displayed but like I said only Google adsense support people can give you a definitive answer. Also if you email them and they say YES it's ok then keep that email somewhere safe just in case.
