Odd question: falling snow effect with adsense?

Hi there,

A bit of an odd question, but I am thinking of adding a falling snow effect to one of my websites which is a Christmas related website. I have adsense on the website and wondered if this would cause any violations of any sort? I’m wondering because the falling snow would be on top of the ads therefore technically adding content on top of their ads.

Does anyone know if this would cause any violations?

Thanks!

I wouldn’t think so. Most of the policies around modification of adsense ads is around drawing attention to or misleading visitors on what the ad is or where it goes when clicked on. If the falling snow is a feature of the entire website, I wouldn’t see this being anything special for the ads themselves.

However, when in doubt, you can always ask Google. Better safe than sorry right? You can contact their help line… https://support.google.com/adsense/gethelp or maybe ask the question in their community full of experts https://support.google.com/adsense/thread/new

I would think that the answer is “If the snow is heavy enough to be a violation for obscuring the ad (hiding ads is a nono as well…), then you’re obscuring your entire website, which… is self destructive as it is.”
