In a post today, the AdSense team explains how to manage the risks associated with user comments. Though, comments help to drive discussion and increase reader engagement, but at the same time "negative, rude, or abusive comments take away from the article, and can also cause your site to no longer be eligible to show Google ads, wrties the team.

So, as a publisher, here is how you can keep comments — or, more generally, user-generated content (UGC) — policy compliant so that your site can continue to monetize with Google.

First up, rather than adding inline comments in your contents, as a best practise, you can rather at the end of your content, "place a call to action, such as: 'User Comments' or 'View Comments' which lets users open the comments in a new page," the team said.

On that new page, "make sure not to place any Google ad tags, so that no ads serve next to those comments."
