    Click on the "Ads by Google" part of the ad...then look near the bottom of the resulting page, you should see a link that says:

    "Send Google your thoughts on the site or the ads you just saw"

    Ah, apparently you were doing _something_ wrong if Google chose to shut it down, though. If they are doing something wrong, if they are trying to game the system, then they are NOT webmasters like any of us.

    Do you really mean that there are no webmasters here who are trying to cheat the system?
    Hmm. Think again...

    Did I say that? No, I don't think I did. "They are webmasters like any of us" is what was said. And I take offense at being lumped in with those cheating the system.

    If ads stop appearing there, that may be a good sign. (well, a bad sign, really)

    Become one with the TOS and especially the Program Policies. Check out the official Adsense blog for changes that may not be in the Program Policies. If they ever ask you to re-accept the Terms, READ THEM, something will have changed and you'd best find out what.

    Above all, don't try to screw with them. If you even think something might be a little dodgy, there is a good chance that it is.

    please no offense, but would you mind your own business? don't you have time to look after your own website for getting more revenue rather than finding some one-else websites and complaining about it? let google find out, its just a matter of days for google to find out. why worry about someone else problem when there is enough worry on our self

    If that site really bother you then you can email to google adsense team. But if it does not affect on your site and on your daily income, leave it and mind your own business.

    Its google's responsibility for finding and taking down those ads.Is google going to pay you for that??

    Besides that on clicking your blog your site automatically redirected me to some other site.Do you expect that i would like to go to your blog again?? Those sites only encourage false clicking,you forcibly redirected me.
    PS no offence intended.

    Hmmm

    Its all a big game isnt it! They violate googles adsense rules but there are alternatives to adsense out there so what diference will it make if they just swap to another adsense type advertisments??

    Why go to the trouble of complaining, the way this reads is it reeeks of website jelousy ie they thought of it first and they are doing it better than yoooooouuuuuuu so mind your own business

    Wow these posts telling people to mind their own business just crack me up and must come from NON-adwords users.

    Do you get paid to report sites? Or you just have too much time and have nothing better to do?
    Really? Who cares about sites breaking the Google TOS? They will get banned sooner or later (sooner I would say).
    You can't stop the abusers. You can't even slow them down. They are way too much.

    AdSense cheaters cause reduced RoI for AdWords Advertisers.

    This causes AdWords Advertisers to lower the prices they are willing to pay.

    This causes all AdSense Publishers to be paid less for AdSense clicks.

    If you are an AdSense Publisher, click fraud is hurting you.

    This is basic economics.

    If you do report, make sure it's not from the same IP that you log into your adsense account with.. take my word for it. (they punish the messenger)
