    Can Linkshare be used on site with Adsense?

    I just signed up with Linkshare through Overstock.com and I wanted to know if I could put their banners on my site, which already has Google Adsense ads on it? Is this against Google's TOS? Or against Linkshare's TOS?

    Should be fine. The site in my signature uses both.

    Haven't made a penny with Linkshare for over 2 years, Good Luck! Use them as fillers.

    I have both on a couple of my sites. It's fine.

    I haven't made a lot from any affiliate program yet, but I have made a little bit with Linkshare.

    Good Luck!

    Forgot to answer your question straight.

    Yes you can have both!

    Amazon has come up with contextual ads too now! But they can't be confused with Google ads, Amazon's Omakase ads look like their regular ads except they are tailored to your page and website. Altough not as fined tuned as Google.

    Since amazon is now contextual, does it mean they can't be used with google?

    Don't mix Omakase with AdSense. If you don't change anything, your hand placed links didn't "become" contextual, so you're fine.

    Just don't use any contextual software to place your LinkShare ads, and don't format them in such a way that they could be mistaken for Adsense, and you should be fine.
