Strange logic from Google

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by neforum, Dec 6, 2013.

    I received an email saying that a specified page on a domain was in breach of Adsense terms and conditions and that ad serving would be disabled to that domain. I reviewed the page and removed the Adsense code completely from the subdomain that contained it. I appealed the decision to have ad serving reinstated to the domain, quoting the page they objected to,but Google wrote back saying that there was no Adsense code on the page specified. Errr, yes, because I removed it!

    They now want me to submit a second appeal, with the url of a page that they didn't specifically object to, to allow them to decide whether to re-instate ad-serving on the domain.

    What?????

    Removing the code from the offending page is not good enough. You need to remove the offending content from the site if you want to remain in adsense.

    Tried that too, but they just said other pages on the offending domain (without any Adsense code on them) were still in contravention. In the end I just bit the bullet, bought a reseller account, and started transferring the individual subdirectories from the original domain to their own discreet website domains and urls. I then individually re-introduced Adsense to the ones Google didn't object to. What a chew.

    I think the problem was duplicate content. The content for my website was the same as the entry on Wikipedia for it. However, the wikipedia entry was copied from my website, not the other way round!

    Get patient, Google bureaucracy's always like that.
    Since you are the offender causing them trouble, you have to suffer:)

    Not a problem anymore, as everything is now in it's own seperate webspace. Before, I had different websites in different subdirectories on the same domain. Google effectively disabled Adsense on all of my websites by suspending service on that one domain. Let that be a lesson to you all kiddies. ;-)
