Site approval basics

Hy all ,

I have a question regarding the use of Facebook,linkedin,twiter ,e.t.c. buttons that are frequently used in many websites.Is the use  of those buttons a reason of violation of site policies when used in a site who runs an adwords campaign when their links are direct linking to the mentioned sites and are not cloaked?And if yes ,does any one knows some way to cloak them?Or is it better not to use such buttons at all in a site that runs adwords?

 

Thanks in advance

Yes, you can use those buttons on your website which uses adwords. Its not a problem.

For anyone who comes across this thread later....

 

Do not attempt to cloak things on your site.  That is, don't serve separate content to the Google bots and to real users.  When we catch advertisers doing this we suspend their entire accounts.  It can even get you removed from the Google Search index.  This has happened to some very large, multinational companies.  You can probably find some press reports about it in a Google News search.
