    Since I got a great response for the mod-rewrite FAQ, and a lot of AdSense questions are asked over and over and over and..., I've made an AdSense FAQ which has the questions listed below. As I add more questions, I'll update the image to show the new questions. If you got questions that aren't listed along with the answer, post them here or PM to me and I'll add them to the FAQ.

    I would change 2 to "Why are my high paying keyword ads getting suck low EPC" as metso is not a noob term, and you could then write about why chasing high paying keywords is a bad thing in terms of "made for adsense" and that they just don't work as well as you think they will.

    also, 3. Do you want a resource of "how to sabotage adsense accounts" ? Think that sort of info is best left unpublished.

    And a section on "My account has been disabled.. what now" with a guide on what steps to take to get back on, and what other adSense alternatives there are for the terminally banned.

    Good information, thansk for putting it together. I would clarify on the one account thing, because while you can only sign up for one personal account, you are alllowed to sign up for additional accounts under seperate business entities. I know this both because ShoeMoney does it quite succesfully and I recently contacted Google about an issue where I needed to have more granularity with the competitive ad filter to use on different sites. They suggested I set up a seperate account under a business and that would be no problem.

    So while you can only sign up for one personal account, you can sign up for additional accounts that are represented business entities.

    Yes nice reference for the noobies that ask the same q's over and over.

    I haven't seen reports updating every 15-30 minutes in months though. Mine has been more like every 1-3 hours for a while now.

    I thought so. That answer was right from Google themselves.

    :::2. Why my meso ads are getting so low EPC.

    I think it's because for every high paying advertisor (Think lawyers.) there are 25 low paying advertisors, and with the thousands of sites promoting the term, the lawyers get such low results that they stoped allowing there ads to show up on web sites.

    :::And a section on "My account has been disabled.. what now" with a guide on what steps to take to get back on, and what other adSense alternatives there are for the terminally banned.

    If there's any one here that's been re-instated, tell us what you did! I tried to get permission from a poster over at WMW that had great tips, to put there tips in it, but he said no.

    :::3. Can somebody sabotage my account

    I think I can add that, but it'll probably be 100% opinion since we don't know exactly what Google does when the ban button is pressed.

    :::What are highest paying keywords?

    If any one has a link to one of those sites with those lists, give it to me and I can add a link to it.

    FAQ Updated with nine more questions added, plus a list of high paying keywords from http://www.shitehole.com/ thought I'm not too sure about how correct it is. Why would some one pay up to $520.52 for 'domains yahoo'???!!!

    I tried joining a week ago but I haven't got any reply. What do I do?
    Why are my high paying ads getting so low EPC?

    Can somebody sabotage my account?

    I don't go in to too much detail on this question because the last thing I want is that question to give some one an idea to do it to me, or do click bombing!

    What are highest paying keywords?
    I have placed Adsense in my site for X months, but I have only made $X.00. How can I make more money?
    It looks like every one is getting banned. Why should I even join?
    Should I make AdSense only sites?
    Is it possible to filter keywords or general topics from your ads?
    Is a high PR required to get high paying ads?

    And the image in the first post has been updated. (It's an image because you can't edit posts after eight hours!)

    How about an entry addressing the people who say

    "OMG my CTR is way up, Google must be doing something, am I going to get banned"

    or the opposite

    "OMG my CTR and eCPM is way down, Google must be cutting payouts for everyone, who else is seing the same thing?"

    These would have to constitute the two most popular and (pointless) threads in this forum.

    LOL!! I'll try to add those two in with out making fun of them!!!!

    I do got one version of the CTR up one allready in...

    Does high CTR mean elimination from Adsense?
    Probably not. It shows your site is very optimized. It's when you have a massive spike that you want to worry about it. One thing to worry about is getting click-bombed. If you average 100 clicks a day, and suddenly get a 500 click day, contact Google immediately.

    Though I think i can add those two in and make fun of them!

    I'll have the FAQ Updated with in a day with atleast 14 more questions, including two Google vs Yahoo questions!

    For Blogger blogs, what percentage of your AdSense earnings do Blogger take?

    (Seems a bit odd, since Blogger is owned by Google anyway... Taking from Peter to pay, er, Peter!);)

    Nobody knows the payout percentages for Adsense.

    I don't see why it would be any different though (Blogger vs. other sites).

    Froogle hardly ever gets questions posted, and I stink when it comes to doing PPC!! I'm lucky if I can even get the money back!!! One of those 'I make $10,000 a month from PPC' guys should make that FAQ!!!! :D

    Nintendo,

    I understand the reasoning behind an image for your FAQ instead of regular links but I do wish I was able to do a plain old text search on your main thread post but currently I can't :(

    The browser search option should work, when at the FAQ page.

    Thanks. Fixed. Though I'm not too sure how correct it is. 'domains yahoo' being #1 and mesothelioma being #35!!!

    I meant that one can't search the thread itself as all FAQ topics are listed as one big image. But sure, one can click through to your site and search the text-only pages there.

    I know. It's only that way so I can keep updating it, instead of it going outdated from not being able to update it. Luckly images can be updated after 24 hours. :D
