    I have been a AdSense subscriber for 8 months now. My earnings have consistanly increased without any issues from the mighty G. In fact, a few months ago they snail mailed me a little green booklet with tips on how to increase your revenue with AdSense. I employed them, they worked.

    Recently, I was sent an email from G (a real person) explaining that some of my tax forms were not completed properly. I was asked to complete them. I am Canadian based and beleived that I required a EIN number. So I applied with the IRS for one. I received a fax from the IRS with my EIN but could not read it and my time expired that Google gave me to obtain this. I receive a phone call from a real person at Google, in fact the same person that was emailing me. I explained to her that I was still waiting for my EIN number. She asked me a couple of questions and suggested that I talk with the Google tax expert to get clarification as I may not require an EIN number. She transferred me directly to him . We talked. He suggested that I did not require the EIN form and directed me to the correct form found in the Google tax wizard. Done

    These people are concerned about their publishers and advertisers as I subscribe to both. It is human nature to be envious and sometimes malicious success stories such as Google, Bill Gates, Don Trump. Few of us take the time to give merit where merit is due.

    I believe Google has earned there position online. If they can my AdSense account I trust there would be just reason doing so. If there is not just reason I beleive I would have an opportunity to explain myself. If you consider the size of this giant you should also consider how often you here negative feedback about them...rare to never.

    Still, I don't see why it's so hard for them to just disregard fraudulent clicks and negate the fraudulent amount from the adwords client's balance. It's not like it cost google anything (really). I didn't even get a warning. Hell, I would removed all my local site promotions in a heartbeat. But I'm not going over the whole story again. Basically, google let me close down my old account and then make a new one.

    If it hurts G bottomline, they will fix it. David, I think you are very lucky to get your account back. I read on another forum, G usually don't even reply your email once they close your account.

    I wasn't allowed to retain my earnings. I had to start over.

    But if THAT is as good as it gets, I'm grateful,but I'm still not happy being the exception that proves the rule. Google should show all of her publishers a little more slack.

    Think G is your girlfriend. She wanted to break up with you. You begged her. She came back. It's beautiful, isn't it? JMHO.

    Hey all,

    I'm new to this forum and to adsense, and found this thread interesting. I currently run a small yoga info site that has adsense on it. I do not work at a university, and I set up the adsense account from my home computer. But, my husband works for a university and I can do a link with a few of their websites on campus. Should I bother to do this? I'm now worried that if too many clicks come from the campus network they may get cranky.

    Thanks

    Wendy

    if they were honest u backlniks, I wouldn't worry about it. The trick here is that I hompagenized the entire computer lab and spammed the favorites list. I was asking for trouble.

    It was EXTREMELY stupid and no doubt NOT lucrative in hindsight but I did it, I regret it, and I'm glad google didn't disallow me from cancelling and resubmitting my account.

    Thats it? Give us the rest of the story.

    Are you still making money.or the same amount?

    Any more bad google emails?


    It sucks how all your accumulated earnings for the 2 months were refunded.

    They kick you out because of a lot of clicks from the localized area of your university!

    Hi,

    I Got banned for no reason also, They don't give any money back.

    I am sending them emails not because I want to rejoin adsense but because I want them to know that They have to behave like humans they give no reason, and no warning when the shutdown accounts, hoping that contin. emails from banned users can make them think of changing their attitude!

    You signed the TOS so you are bound by it.

    The fact that they hold you to that does not mean they "don't behave like humans"

    How many times did you accidentally click on your own ads (be honest now)
