    I am unsure whether your plugin is safe for Adsense.
    Accoring to http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=48182:
    Site behavior
    Sites showing Google ads should be easy for users to navigate. Sites may not change user preferences, redirect users to unwanted websites, initiate downloads, include malware or contain pop-ups or pop-unders that interfere with site navigation.

    So, is the Facebook Page Promoter Lightbox AdSense safe?

    I appreciate if you could answer this from your point of view/experience and perhaps give a link to Google answering it (if available).

    Thanks!

    On the google product forum, there is not a question regarding this specific plugin. However, it is safe to say the we are dealing with the following situation.
    - A lightbox with adsense ads underneath it.

    I have found a question which elaboreates on the use of lightboxes on a webpage with adsense: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/adsense/RABJE01xqQ0

    I assume it is adsense safe if you don't:
    - place advertisement inside the ligtbox
    - position the close button is such a way that it increase the chances to click on a ad.

    Having that said, the only way to get a definitive answer is to contact google (either via forum or via mail). They are in charge of their adsense service AND may or may not swing the ban hammer.

    We had had adsense on our websites in the past with lightboxes without problems. However, we removed adsense, since the payoff isn't that great.
