    Guys, I need your wise words again this time.
    Someone wants to post their blog's RSS widget on my blog.
    The blog is all about poker.

    They are offering me $70 for a year's advertisement.
    Honestly, I want to take the plunge we really need some money for some of our expenses.

    Would it be ok? Will my site suffer from this deal?

    By the way, my site is entertainment niche.
    Waiting for your replies.

    GekiDan you need to be careful with gambling related content. Google don't like it appearing on the same websites as their ads and their terms and conditions for Adsense forbid it.

    Will it be possible for you to put "no-follow" tags round the links displayed by the widget?

    I agree with Fergal, GekiDan. I would steer clear of any gambling related content. Much as it's tempting when you need the cash, that's less than $6 a month. Is it worth having it there if it causes you problems with Google? I don't think so.

    If it's for JeFusion, I definitely wouldn't. And another thing: with RSS feeds being instant they could put anything up and it be indexed before you had a chance to object to it.

    Instead why don't you advertise in the Marketplace here and elsewhere for advertisers?

    Thanks for all your replies. I decided not to push through after I posted this thread.
    I could earn more than that amount and I wouldn't risk my blog in getting banned by Google.

    @Kay, Got your PM. I'll try that out later. Thanks.
