    Firstly well done on the promotion side of things..want a job :D

    If you contact them and explain then they may re admit you. I've been hearing more and more stories like this (usually related to myspace) , I can understand why they do it as it obviously looks suspicious.

    Email them the links to your stories on digg and shoutwire. Google can track the referrer details so they may reinstate you.

    Google can track absolutely everything as long as they have adsense on your pages.

    If its what you say it is.... email them, and explain it. They would be stupid not to let you back in.

    Appeal your ban by contacting Google, it's not your fault you got Digged... although how'd you get your Digg visitors to actually click on ads? They're notoriously adblind.

    Change it to Chitika quickly but don't waste your time if you're not approved yet, rent the adspace to someone and put THEIR YPN / Chitika / Aff links on there.

    If you are getting that much traffic at this second; I wouldn't be wasting time in a forum complaining about adsense right now. I'd put something else up in its place that'd generate revenue. Worry about the google fallout after your traffic surge is done with.

    Explain to Google that the huge increase in CTR was a result of getting on Digg. Hopefully, you will have some proof ready for them to see e.g. your referral stats.

    Sorry to hear you got banned, but I seriously doubt it had anything to do with digg or shoutwire. Google knows what those sites are and they can track the referrer. Must have been something else IMO
