What are you going to do if you are banned from Adsense? End of the world? Quit blogging? Let me stretch my neck before I continue typing. Ok, it took me a few months to decide whether I should publish this post or not. If you noticed, Adsense ads had been missing from this blog for about a few months now. The reason; I was banned from Adsense!
My account suspended because of invalid clicks activity on Adsense ads published in this blog. This is the email I receive from them. While going through our records recently, we found that your AdSense account has posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers. Since keeping your account in our publisher network may financially damage our advertisers in the future, we’ve decided to disable your account. Google in the other hand, admitting that they suspended publishers every single day. I’ve heard similar stories many times. Bloggers getting banned from AdSense without any warning or explanation. It wouldn’t be so bad, but when Google do this, they perpetually withhold any earnings you have.
Back to my story, as soon as i got banned, i send them an email through their appeal form to reinstate my account. And on the eve before Christmas (2 months after) i got the reply saying that they cannot reinstate my account for the same reasons and to protect the interest of their advertiser. So generally, the chances of resurrecting your Adsense account are less. And only few are manage to get their money keep running to their bank account after banned from the programme.
Based on a quick assessment of what actually happened to the reasons that got me banned, i found out several potential reasons.
1) People who blog-walking to this blog and click on my adsense ads hoping in return i will click on their ads. (That is why i remove the chat widget on my sidebar)
2) Participation in the Traffic Exchange Program a while back when this blog traffic is less than 5 visits per day. My noob’ness!
3) Clicks from the Traffic Exchange Programme.
4) Multiple clicks from one IP address.
So before you participate in Adsense please carefully read the TOS and keep away from traffics that encourage invalid clicks. For the time being it is best for me to join ads program that really pay. I am happy with Nuffnang for the cheque they sent me recently. So Bye- bye Adsense!
P/S : if you receive you Google PIN which made you entitled to withdrawal your earning, get ready to be Banned because they will re-evaluate your account.
