    They didn't say you were clicking on your own ads. They keep pointing to the auto-surf/artificial impressions problem. You seem to be very big on trading links, buying links, etc. Chances are you bought links from place that Google doesn't approve of. Think back, I'm sure you'll realize what you did wrong...

    I use the co-op, could that be considered "artificial impressions"?....I don't use any "auto-surf" programs or anything of the sort.

    Probably not the DP co-op. But you must have purchased links from somewhere that sent you traffic that Adsense doesn't approve. What other places have you purchased links from lately?

    I include adsense on all of www.jamroll.co.uk hosted sites, some 1,000 plus sites in total.

    I couldn't begin to comment for my hostees. I need to know from google what the suspect domain is.

    Thats a tough one actually. I would suspect that people getting free hosting might be the most likely to participate in paid to surf programs, so obviously one of your hosted accounts got you in trouble.

    Google isn't likely to give you the offending subdomain so I don't see this getting resolved. In the end, you are responsible for the actions of all 1000 of those subdomains which is one of the pitfalls of AdSense and Free Hosting

    Ah, that's the problem, isn't it? You put your Adsense ads on 1,000 sites that you have no control over. Not very smart. You could have just as easy been banned for any dozen of other violations.

    That now leaves my model flawed, I had it paying for itself (and indeed making some little return for more features/servers etc).

    Now I'll be losing money without much of an alternative to turn to.

    I suggest you go for a shadier ad network for your jamroll site. :(

    I think there are better alternatives for free hosting sites. AdSense has always been a risky move due to their strong TOS (And Yahoo would be the same).

    There are lots of networks with flashy banners etc which seem to do better on free hosting. - Maybe start a thread looking for some of those alternatives.

    i had the same warning as google. I never knew what they were talking about, but i just removed any way of promoting my blogs and they never bothered me again. Unfortunately, i'm not getting clicks (nor a lot of traffic) to my blogs. but that's better than losing my account...

    Thanks yfs1 appreciate your input, if i cannot get this resolved I will.

    I'm hoping adsense will understand, it's not like I've intentionally done wrong. That's a lot of sites to keep my eye on and I'm not responsible for their content.

    You are, in fact, responsible for EVERYTHING you slap your Adsense on. It's unfortunate that you are now trying to divert the blame...

    Er, im not trying to divert the blame. I'm a big boy, I can take it. The fact of the matter is my adsense is on 1,000 peoples websites. I can't babysit them all of the time unfortunately which has obviously lead to this problem.

    Doesn't matter, Google won't fall for that. It's your code on them sites, you ARE to blame.
