    Is it true that if I get a lot of my traffic from orkut and myspace then I coulkd be banned?

    I always post my link in orkut communities which are related to my blog topic.
    None else. So its definitely targetted traffic that I get. But reading some posts here I am really confused. Plz help!

    well someone told me that its considerd unhealthy traffic..the traffic that comes from myspace, orkut, hi5 etc. Now my blog is about spirituality and supernatural, currently dealing with Nostradamus prophecies. So I post about it in the Nostradamus community and Black Arts Community.
    Obviously Im getting targetted traffic!!

    Waiting for someone more knowledgable to reply

    I think it's only bad if you are "spamming" your link on these social networks. Adsense doesn't like link spammers.

    I think the reason why they don't like mail / bulletin traffic is it woudl be easy to put "GO TO my site and CLICK my ads for whatever"... and it would be hard for them to find this out... (unless someone reported you, which they cant really ban for because then whats from stopping people from reporting falsely due to they hate you?)

    to akamaimommie: well I really wonder whats their defintion of spamming becoz there r lots of first timers who clcik from orkut n visit my blog. N most of dem like it n comment positively.

    To venxious:
    If thats the reason...its such an irony! Adsense seems to be a complex mixture of complications and ironies. Mysterious n full of suspense.
    Unreasoanbly unreasonable sometimes.....but honest I guess

    Pinvader, if can go ether way man that why its not clear, some have been banned due to it, others have made thousands. I happen to know 2 people who have gone both ways... Its just like the issue with images next to your gads, some get away with it, others don't... Google isnt really good at giving the same definitive answer and the same responses to everyone...

    Here is a tip :
    Drive all your traffic from those sites to a free hosted page, use auto redirection on that site so when a visitor reach it it will take him to your original page .
    this way you will kill the refferal tracking .

    Your post is very interesting, it really made me think. It made me wonder what if I had one site that was exclusively to advertise all the others. On that one site it would have no google ads but just advertisements about all my other sites and maybe some free stuff just to help keep the traffic rolling in. On that site I could advertise it however I wanted to like with surfing, pop ups or whatever(because on that site I wouldn't have Google adsense on it). Then, I would have all my text links on that site for the sites that do have adsense...there would be no incentive to click on any. Seems like it would be a great way to increase traffic. But Google is so restrictive, do you think they would have a problem with it?

    But do you really know how far back google can track referals? your screwed if they go to your redirect page and find out your trying to by-pass their tracking methods = insta ban... I would NOT suggest this as it is an easy way to get blacklisted. Sending your visitors to a redirect page to hide referral is a bankable offense...its one of those sorta things you just gotta know...read in between the TOS lines..

    Google wants their ads to be placed on genuine high quality sites. If you have a good site then your traffic mostly would be from search engines or other quality sites. If we search on this forum we will find people getting banned from AdSense because of traffic from MySpace. There are posts where people have asked Google if traffic from MySpace is genuine and Google has said its NOT genuine. Now why Google thinks this? Plain and simple...They dont like SPAM.

    Not only MySpace/Orkut but lots & lots of traffic from a single referer will always raise a red flag.

    I don't use this techinique because I have a lot of traffic, but it is the only way to convert traffic from Myspace and others into quality technique, what about putting a link on that page so if a visitor wants it he will enter it a link like : We Are Moved ...
    no one will ben you for that :rolleyes:

    AdSense ads do monitor all incoming traffic and store the top 10 and the last 50 reffer traffic source in your database for example, so when they look and find that your most traffic is not clean and coming from those sites, they may flage your site, smart price it, ban you or ban it .
