    Does google affiliatte network allow adult sites?
    I think I asked this once and the answer isn't very clear. I know adsense prohibits that. Does google affiliate network prohibit that too.

    Hello,

    We do not allow adult sites into our network. You have to be an Adsense publisher to become a Google Affiliate publisher. Here are the policies for both.

    Ah I see. Notice that it's not written in Google Ads

    Where it's written again? Thanks.

    Also does that mean we cannot put google ads on any third party adult site? What about joke site like celebjihad.com. It's not adult site but contain nudity.

    Some of your advertisers actually cater to adult (non adult, but there is an adult option for people that want adult stuff). Netflix is a sample. There are adult movies there right?

    Hello,

    Sites with Google ads, including Google Affiliate Network ads, may not include or link to adult sites per AdSense policies.

    Okay. That's a HUGE clarification. I've tried to find this info everywhere and couldn't find it.

    https://support.google.com/adsense/b...n&answer=48182

    Just for completeness, I see that https://support.google.com/adsense/b...n&answer=48182 says that site cannot be adult.

    Where is the term that says that sites cannot link to adult sites again?

    The reason I ask is because some sites have mixed content. Google and Yahoo for example, have adult content and non adult content. Obviously they are linked to each other. Sometimes people talk that when content is edgie you need to turn of adsense just for that one page. However, I wasn't clear there.

    Better not to get near that I guess.
