I was looking for some high CTR-Themes for my blog as I'm going to be cross-advertising with my YouTube channel and some very active forums. I have a pretty decent name on the forums and a decent amount of followers on YouTube. The blog was going to be SEO'd and hopefully eventually turned into an educational authority website for the niche. However throughout my research and the thousands of posts asking "Should I good it" I've noticed thousands of claims over the span of the forums that it's against AdSense ToS. I'd like to start off by stating that right now my AdSense account is literally all that I have, none of my niches are really set out for selling a product. I am planning on getting into one here soon, but as of right now that's just not the case. What I would like to know: Is it against the AdSense ToS and if so why? Does it negatively effect rankings like some people claim?
