Banned by Google Adsense

    My small cooking site http://everythingofcooking.com/ has been banned by Google for invalid clicks activity. Has anyone had such experience with them? How can i know what clicks and where they came from, i don't get any details from Google just robot replies. I don't want to work with them anymore even if i could, simply want to know what my mistake was and was it really mine?

    Can anyone please advise?

    thank you, i control clicks via google analytics and have never seen anything suspicious, i mean i don't know which of them are considered to be invalid by Google. I get most of clicks from one website where i used to leave comments and much fewer from other sources, is it the case for ad network?

    Try contacting them, but they hardly are going to reply.
    If there's a reason they banned your website, it should be attached within your mail.

    they do reply with common robot replies like

    "Hello,
    We understand your concern about the actions taken on your account. These actions are the result of careful investigation by our team of dedicated specialists, taking into account the interests of both our AdWords advertisers and our other AdSense publishers. Though you may be disappointed with our decision, we are unable to reinstate your account.

    Please also bear in mind that AdSense publishers whose accounts are disabled for violations of our Terms and Conditions are not eligible for further participation in AdSense. For this reason, these publishers may not open new accounts. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding."

    I've heard about other people have the same issue, it looks like they are not interested in keeping publishers cause they have too many of them, no human contact, no details, nothing....and i'm certainly not able to get my small revenue...

    Of course it's a robot reply, what do you except Google to do? Reply to every publisher that has complains? There's a policy and a FAQ (Frequently asked questions) and they specifically ask you to read them after you register so you don't make a mistake like this, that results in a website ban. They have taken repercussions and put all your questions in a Help page. For every action there's a consequence, but anyway who am I to judge, maybe they did a mistake and maybe they did not. To get further information go to Google Adsense forums and open a topic there, there you will have what you call a HUMAN CONTACT which an expert will come reply to you shortly.

    You can appeal to adsene against their action, but there is 99.99% chance that you will not get your account again. very few people get through this process. I have been Adsense forum member for a while and have seen similar cases. You need to come with solid proofs such as your analytics data, stacounter data, CTR , IP info etc. Explain how you get traffic and swear that you understand their TOS and never clicked on any ads.

    adsense alternatives
    If you have a visitors from American and European countries, for cpc switch to MEDIA. net by Yahoo. They are in beta and not open for everybody to sign up. Google and find a way to get invitation from them.

    I will suggest media.net, infolinks. if you need pop under then try edomz. I have a site with some different niches where i make more money from edomz then adsene.

    You definitely can open adsense account after few months avoiding same website and same email id. Lot of guys actually manage to get another account.

    All the best..

    Maybe you can try clicky? I'm using it to analyse my traffic and so far it gives me acceptable result

    Look for some alternatives, AdSense is the best, but their ban policy knows no borders. It's hard to deal with it.

    Google is worse than the soup nazi.

    At least the soup nazi let's you back after a year.

    Once Google bans you, you're done.

    Forever.

    Just my $.02

    My advice is to monetize with Kontera, Clickbank, or MaxBounty.

    Much more reasonable and flexible monetization methods.

    Most importantly.. Build an email list.

    (This is something you can never be "banned" from).

    Because you own the list of subscribers.

    :)

    If you're with google adsense you need to be careful not to try and trick people to click. I looked at your site and maybe they didn't like the traffic to it as well...

    The reason you may have been banned is that 1. You could have easily clicked on you're own ads which means instant ban on adsense 2. You may have had someone spam the cra* out of you're ad's. I recommend for next time have you're adblock on i strongly advice you use google chrome so you are more protected with you're adsense next time.
