I heard that one can advertise with adwords on their website with adsense ads. Guide me if it is true or just a rumor.

Hi Faaiza and welcome to the forum.  It's quite OK to use Adwords to promote a website showing Adsense Ads - a lot of advertisers do it.  However, the showing of Ads must not be the primary purpose of the website.  


In other words, if you run a business and have a website that serves that business with original and valid content, upon which you use a number of Adsense Ads, there shouldn't be any problem in using Adwords to promote that website.


However, if you build a website purely with the purpose of using it to display Ads to which you'll artificially generate traffic (a process known as "arbitrage") you're very likely to find your Account permanently suspended.


Does this help?
