I am new to these forums and spent about 20 minutes looking for this question before I posted, so please be gentle :-)

I had a defense news aggregation website running on a Wordpress clone of Drudge Report. I got around 100k uniques per month. I was told I could not use AdSense with an aggregator website. I also know that certain larger companies do just that.

On my site, I re-wrote headlines and also used headlines to create timelines of world events. When I finally shut down the website, after learning I couldn't monetize it with AdSense, I was flooded with pleas for its return. So here is my question...

How can I create an aggregation website that AdWords will accept? Why can Drudge Report use AdSense, but not me? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!
