    Adsense on a "coming soon" type page

    I am launching a new site in my network of websites on January 1st, and am already sending people to the domain to see that it's "coming soon."

    Google says that you're not supposed to have Adsense on "domain parking websites," but what are the rules on a page that has an entire article detailing what is coming? Is that allowed?

    You'd have to ask Google directly but I assume that if there is content on the page then it would be fine.

    If you value your Adsense account you'd ask TOS related questions directly to Adsense.

    I've seen people post multiple ad's on their "regular maintenance downtime pages"

    Highly doubt thats okay, but was what everyone else thinks.

    It really depends whether there's real content on the page. If you have a summary of what your site will be about and a few paragraphs of information, it should be fine.

    If the page just says "***.com - Coming Soon" though, it would be a pretty clear violation.
