The Google Adsense program is of course one of the most innovative to be in because you are associating with the world’s most unified publishers/advertisers contextual ad program that exists today.
Some Advise From Me
Getting banned from the world’s most unified contextual ad program is no easy thing to accept, and for those who believe that it is okay to be banned, it is a tremendous loss whether you believe so or not. Google Adsense is one of the most renowned publishers program in the world with one of the most highest pay rates for clicks, and I best advice you to try to avoid getting your account banned at all costs. Generally once you are banned, you will be banned for months, if not forever, and submitting for reconsideration is highly doubted to be able to be accepted again. Keeping your sources open, especially for the world’s most renowned publishers program, is essential to monetizing any site in general, and Google Adsense is one of them that you don’t want to get banned.
12 Common Ways to Get Banned
Invalid Clicks and Impressions
Publishers are prohibited to clicking their own ads and introducing methods to artifically increase their traffic through false methods. This could mean traffic exchanges and autosurfs. Some webmasters have reported that their Adsense accounts have been banned because of this, so it is best to avoid it.
Anything advising visitors in anyway to click your ads verbally, is prohibited. This also means that you cannot say, please support us by clicking on… and such.
Google Adsense prohibits having ads placed on sites with web themes with such adultery like gambling. Having placed your publishers code on sites violating these guidelines, can result in a banned Adsense account.
Reported copyrighted material that is shown on your site is prohibited and may cause the loss of having your Adsense terminated because of it.
Having a Quality Site
Your site most uphold and follow these webmasters guidelines here. All the ads represents Google Adsense and its’ image and if you don’t have a quality site, they are most likely not going to accept your site in return. If Google takes you serious, you should too by improving your sites to follow these guidelines.
Strange Traffic Sources
You may not use softwares or use traffic exchanges where the pages with Google Adsense ads show up to increase the impressions and traffic ratings. Any odd behaviors coming from strange traffic can make the Adsense team suspicious.
Altaring the Code
The Google Adsense code must not be altared what so ever. This means you may not change the font size, the font, or anything. You must use only what you get. You will be surprised as to how quickly Google finds out when a code has been altared.
Ads shouldn’t be placed within a pop up, in emails, or softwares. Anything that isn’t part of the quality website it self, the ad shouldn’t be there what so ever. Google is really strict on this case.
Changing Site Preference
The click must happen to the reader’s interest and not by a redirectation or anything interfering with user’s navigation. This means that sites that redirect to other sites, cannot have Adsense code. This includes pop unders, pop ups, and more.
Blending With Other Publisher Ads
Google prohibits the blending of ads from another publisher’s ads, and if you do so, it can result in a ban. Anything that causes the reader to think that the ad belongs to one publisher company, when it doesn’t, is prohibited. You may have different publisher ads on the same pages through, but not exactly next to each other.
Number of Ads
Google only limits publishers to have only up to three content ads, 3 link ads on a single page, and only two search boxes per page. Anything more than that using more than one publishers account can possibly result in having both possible accounts banned.
I for one use Google Adsense and I believe that you should take it seriously, even if you don’t make much from it. All the big names, such as CNN and NY Times takes it seriously, and this shows that you should too if you are a serious webmaster. Follow the guidelines and obey them, and you will be on your way from experiencing a ban free Adsense publisher experience.
