    Coincidence or not, i was click bombed yesterday night, around 11PM GMT.
    I had a sudden rush in clicks, in just one channel jumping from 4 to 30 in 40 or 50 minutes, with NO increase in traffic...
    Google didn't gave no money for those clicks, but anyway i emailed them about it...
    This morning i still have my account and a google email, saying they'll be monitoring my situation.

    Best of luck getting your account back ;)

    Lol, I give up on this thread. This is why I always advice not to post publicly you have been banned and instead take care of it privately. These threads attract them like moths to a porch light.

    But i've never been able to figure out google's term & conditions,The signatures you people are using is a violation as they are hidden links you are suppose to mention the full http:/ww address otherwise this is considered spamming,I think that's why i was banned,If your getting all your traffic from a single country they suspect it,Sometimes the visitors who have bookmarked your site come to it on a daily basis & click on different things including google ads as they change everyday, google thinks you have created a group of people to click on your ads.

    If all things are right in the world, and Google is really the "Do No Evil" entity they make themselves out to be, you'll get your account back. Good luck. If, however, you don't, I see a great loss of faith in Google and their accuracy in monitoring. Strangely enough, there wasn't even the massive click surge that occurs in similar situations.

    This is a grave situation.

    I advertised in a local newspaper i got lots of traffic that day & lots of clicks but the very next day i was banned.They want traffic to come from a proper search engine or another website.

    But iam a highly positive person i never gave up i built a website & worked on its traffic,I contacted different website owners with my traffic stats,And guess what i got advertisers directly on my site no middle agencies no pay per click flat one time weekly payment for a link or banner on my site.

    Don't let something like this get you down life comes with options when all doors close there's always a window left open.

    And i don't like putting people down like most of the members of this forum do if your banned from google.

    But you know what the biggies will never get banned even if they break the tos like joel comm on joelcomm.com he's using kontera ads with google which is against the tos,on the contrary he's got pop ups as well on that site which is against the tos as well,its been months infact years but google has'nt banned him yet.But why would they,They only ban small publishers.

    Expertu,

    I'm sorry to hear that they suspended your AdSense account. However, I noted some other threads where honest publishers had their accounts reinstated after replying to Google, which hopefully will happen to you too.

    Bafta!

    I have to admit to being shocked at this. I know that you would never do anything that warranted a ban.

    here is the thing though. Google have not paid you. Have they refunded the advertisiers? i bet not. Google, do no evil my arse!

    How easy is it to simply identify and negate fraudulent clicks or self clicks? Yahoo do it. And you can bet your arse that when Yahoo and MSn go mainstream with their sensible approach to invalid clicks Google will lose the bulk of its adsense income. personally I can't wait, as their attitude is shitty to say the least.
