    I have a pretty successful Pinterest page and website. Today I decided to take my AdSense code and put it in the Link Box so if they choose to click the picture it registers a click through my AdSense account and takes them to the Ad site instead of my own Website. I have AdSense on my Pinterest Website anyways, (like that matters hah) anyways, is this extremely bad? bad? not smart? Been with AdSense for over 5 years. I have had 4 clicks in like an hour from this with 2 AdSense links added to 2 pictures only, I just did 3 more for testing. If I do keep doing this should it only be like once a month? Not at all? Is it not even that bad? Am I paranoid? BTW This is a throw away account with a different email, I always think Google will look on these sites if my account becomes suspicious and find my email somehow hahaa damn, Anyways, my CTR right now from this at 4 clicks is 1.79% What do you guys think about all of this?

    I don't see how they would even know, I posted the ad on my website first, extracted the URL and pasted the exact same URL in the picture link. A referer would show from Pinterest anyways, especially since my whole website is Pinterest related and they come from those exact same pictures to my website.

    AmiRi? Enlighten please, I need more than just "they won't like that" I need details.

    Use the button search on the forum and type in adsense pinterest, you'll find several threads. There were some people making good money doing this but some of them got banned from using pictures and such that were not of their property.

    That's properly against the TOC's. IF they find out it's a guaranteed spanking and you're more than likely to lose you account.

    Don't bother. You probably won't be paid at the end of the month anyways.

    I switched from Adsense to my own products and videos for Pinterest traffic. Not a good sign to just depend on Adsense (I'm pretty sure having a back up plan is nice so go out and grab a nice product or service to resell to them).

    Maybe, there are enough responses on this thread for you to not to do that and cry losing the 5 year old account.
