How To Get Banned From Google Adsense In Just few hours

    The darkest nightmare a hardworking affiliate webmaster fears is receiving a dreaded Google Adsense Warning, or even worse, a notice that Google Adsense has been disabled for the entire account.

    The notice starts out like this:

    "It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on the ads on your web pages. We have therefore disabled your Google Adsense account. Please understand that this step was taken in an effort to protect the interest of the AdWords advertisers."

    Some webmasters use Google Adsense to generate 100% of their website income and the account may hold many different websites. In that case, every website is disabled at one time. An automatic disqualification can be devastating, especially when Google has no obligation to explain its decision in detail.

    Not only does the account become disabled, but also existing click-through earnings are refunded back to the advertisers.

    Life gets tough, but is it that easy to get an account banned? Yes it is.

    The terms of service every Google Adsense Webmaster accepts, describes the easy do's and don'ts.

    Do use the Adsense approved formats only

    Do keep your click-through data and income private.

    Don't display Adsense on registration or thank you pages.

    Don't use Adsense code and a competitor's content-targeted advertisement on the same page.

    Don't encourage anyone else to click on ads.

    For a complete list, read the Adsense policies and terms

    (https://www.google.com/adsense/policies)

    (https://www.google.com/adsense/terms)

    The easiest method an account can be banned is by a Webmaster clicking on the site's own ads.

    Just how many click-throughs are needed to get a site banned isn't exposed, but Google Adsense watches for multiple clicks from the same domain. One person was banned who clicked twice from the same domain within a 24-hour period. That doesn't mean that is Adsense policy, because Adsense appears to place suspect sites on watch status until the action is duplicated.

    Spikes in click-through percentages are hefty red flags. Those are the changes worth becoming proactive over by emailing Google Adsense. A site that rises from a consistent 1% click-through rate to a 10% click-through rate on one day could become suspect. The actual percentage that creates the flag isn't made public for obvious reasons.

    What's the safest way to protect an account?

    Don't click on the site's own ads ever.

    Deceptive practices work for a short time, but they always come back to hurt the originator.

    Should read, "dishonest affiliate webmaster..." :mad:

    This is why I recommend that all Adwords advertisers think hard before turning Content Matching on.

    A) Googles Content matches are seldom relevant.

    B) The risk of click fraud is just too high. And the big time fraudsters will always be one step ahead of the fraud police.

    How many times have you seen this?
    "Help support our site - click on these ads."
    :mad: :mad:

    I was myself into adwords before sometime. The number of valid clicks are really very less. n don't make your ads displayed world wide, that's the first thing u can do to save a bit of ur money

    I kind of figured that, Josh.

    Post #5 gave it away. ;)

    Still a helpful topic though.

    I once had a message on my website that encouraged people to click my ads. Google personally contacted me (no auto message) to remove that line within 3 days. I did so and nothing happened to my account. This was months ago. I think you must have done something really bad that Google just disables your account.

    What will happen if some other guys click in our ads day after day to ban us?
    Lets imagine that you have some enemies on the Internet and they want to see you down. They come to your website and keep clicking on the ads everyday.

    Who will be the victim? You?

    I have heard that google has banned some accounts for click fraud and the webmasters are sure that they did not click on their own ads.

    I think its probably a bad idea to click your own ads whilst logged into adsense with the same IP. Thats gotta be a fast way to get flagged as a fraudster. :p

    I guess you are misunderestood. I know we cannot click on our own ads. I am asking about other guys.

    Let's say other guy with same IP come to my wbsite and click on the ads manytime, to ban my account. Then what will happen? Who will be the victim?

    Whenever you detect invalid clicks ( probably due to high CTR ) email google about the incident. AdSense team welcomes these emails and eliminates the revenue generated from those invalid clicks. Thus you wont be banned bcoz of honesty. ;)
