10 Great things "NOT" to do with Google AdSense

Discussion in 'Guidelines / Compliance' started by vladyghost, Mar 30, 2010.

    There is no question that you can make some good money with Google AdSense, but you're setting yourself up for disaster if you make any of these Top 10 mistakes!

    1. Do not use fake information when opening your Google AdSense account.

    Google says that's a no-no and they will cut your account off and keep all the money you may have earned. Besides, trying to hide your true identity can cause serious problems with the I.R.S. or whoever your tax authority is.

    2. Do not hack or modify Google AdSense code other than to change the parameters that Google authorizes you to change.

    Any attempt to bypass Google's built-in algorithms not only poses a danger to the integrity of the network, but it threatens the financial modle that Google operates under. You're not dealing with some Mom-and-Pop company here, and Google has the legal muscle and deep enough pockets to drag you through every court in the land if you damage their business with your hacking antics.

    3. Keep AdSense ads off of your registration, confirmation, and all "thank you" pages.

    Don't ask me why you can't put your ads there. It makes sense to me that those would be wonderful locations. Google thinks otherwise, however, and doing so is a hanging offense according to their Terms of Service.

    4. Do not display AdSense ads and a competitor's ads (like Overture's) on the same page at the same time.

    That just makes plain good sense. Google doesn't demand 100% SITE loyalty from you, but they do insist that their own ads not be cluttered up by offerings from their competitors.

    5. Don't "beg for clicks" or provide any incentive for clicking on your Google AdSense ads.

    This is a biggie and you see this rule violated all the time. Any of the "get paid to do stuff" sites that put Google ads in the member's control panels are walking the plank and they don't even realize it. Even those sites with the polite little messages asking you to "help keep my site running by clicking on our sponsor's ads" are asking to be cut off if those happen to be Google ads.

    6. Never click on the ads running on your own site, even if you are genuinely interested in the product or service and are thinking of buying it!

    Nothing screams FRAUD louder than a webmaster running up his or her own click counts by happily clicking on ads fromtheir own site. The Google Gods can track this activity and it won't be long until you find yourself getting a goodbye note from their fraud team.

    7. No misleading labeling
    SEMrush
    Google is very specific about what text can be placed around their ads. Their Terms of Service state: "Publishers may not label the ads with text other than 'sponsored links' or 'advertisements.' This includes any text directly above our ads that could be confused with, or attempt to be associated with Google ads."

    This is to keep visitors from becoming confused and barking up Google's tree when they clicked on an ad that led to a porn site instead of the recipe site they were expecting to visit.

    8. Avoid keyword spamming and other divisive tricks

    You may be tempted to buy one of those "generates thousands of key-word rich pages in seconds" programs that are so popular these days but I'll tell you this: Their days are numbered. Google is wise to such shenanigans and they will be hot on your trail. Other prohibited gimmicks include:

    * "Sneaky" page redirects that send a visitor off to a different site then they were expecting to visit.

    * Multiple sites, domains, pages, etc. which have substantially duplicate content.

    * Hidden text or links of any type.

    * Excessive outbound links on any page. Google recommends no more than 100. I'd keep it way below that.

    * And here is a nugget of wisdom straight from Google's mouth: "Do not participate in link schemes designed to increase your site's ranking or PageRank. In particular, avoid links to web spammers or "bad neighborhoods" on the web as your website may be affected adversely by those links.

    9. Don't advertise anything on Google's prohibited items list.

    It's a lot shorter lists than PayPal's or eBay's, but it includes a lot of the same stuff like hacking/cracking content, porn, illegal drugs, gambling sites, beer or hard alcohol (I guess wine is OK), weapons, and the other usual stuff.

    10. And the 10th dumbest thing NOT to do with Google AdSense is to let the other nine things stop you from running an honest site that's designed to make the most out of this very profitable opportunity that Google offers!

    Feel free to reply a "Thank you" note

    Good information. With number 4, just to be clear. As far as I understand, you are allowed to put adsense mixed with other ads on the same page. As long as you stay within 3 google adsense boxes, you should be ok. Which should be another one you can add, only have maximum of 3 adsense ad location on each page.

    Not a bad list. It needs to be read by those who insist on starting a thread
    with, "I lost my adsense for no reason.."

    You can display other ads. That's old information. I think google changed, so
    people would realize that competitor's ads are a waste of time, so just stick
    with google. Many people think otherwise, and when they don't make squat
    with the others, they put google solo anyway.

    I see no need to use a similar ad service to google when you have google!!!!

    The only rule is, you cannot make them seem as if they are google ads.
    That is, you cannot have a google copy-cat. I don't know what overture
    says, but if it's marked overture, then it would seem to be okay.

    I've seen ads that tool the same as google with no branding. That would
    be a clear violation.

    May I add a little more? :)

    11. Do not buy traffics to your website. Most of traffic buying are against with Google Adsense and it could lead your account to be banned.

    12. Do not let your ads display without checking them. You should check each ads to see if some of them might be a garbage MFA sites. This is an old good trick mentioned in here before and I would recommend you do it. It does work and help increasing more revenue.

    what if you hired someone to build a mybb forum for you, and found out that the person placed AdSense ads on registration page, you contacted said person and they want to charge more to remove. charges for everything has been on going, and becoming quite the drain. a continual "small fee" drain. I am not experienced. am learning slowly but am worried i will not get this removed from mybb forum before google finds it especially as i think the person that knows may report. please advise

    i have found solution to my problem, was not sure where i should post that so am mentioning here. it was trial by error, removing this code

    <center> <script type="text/javascript"><!--
    google_ad_client = "pub-2304333624842093";
    /* 728x90, created 9/2/10 */
    google_ad_slot = "1923859827";
    google_ad_width = 728;
    google_ad_height = 90;
    //-->
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript"
    src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
    </script></center>
    <br />

    from header, and this code,

    <center> <script type="text/javascript"><!--
    google_ad_client = "pub-2304333624842093";
    /* 728x90, created 9/2/10 */
    google_ad_slot = "1923859827";
    google_ad_width = 728;
    google_ad_height = 90;
    //-->
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript"
    src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
    </script></center>
    <br />

    from footer

    you have said extremely informative points regarding the adsense. this was very helpful for the new person to the adsense such as me.

    we should not buy the traffic for the websites having the adsense ads, the basic reason behind this is the fake traffic provided by the supplier. hence why to waste money in buying traffic rather than promoting and producing new information.:D
