    If they have kicked you for not enough clicks, that is one harsh move...
    SEMrush
    You think they would simply disregard clicks from the webmasters IP??

    I am not saying clicking on your ads is right, but so much effort and heartache would be saved if they simply disregarded all clicks from IP's that have either logged in to the adsense account or already had a governed amount of clicks..

    Im sure this would be 5 mins of code from someone in the know....

    It's their program, and it is not like you don't have the same privilege. You may terminate Adsense anytime with no explanation.

    They are very strict with this. I had some softcore images on one of my sites. Nothing even close to porn, just a few butts :D

    The guys from Adsense politely asked me to remove their code from any site with those images, which I sure did 2 seconds after I got their email.

    i think they would be happier with me if i made THEM more money.

    im wondering, when an account is terminated they say the money is given pack to the advertiser. does google give back its share too ?

    What I cannot figure out is why Google Ads for Porn sites come up when doing a search for say "pu**y", but you cannot put AdSense on a porn site.

    I really do not care either way, but it seems that google does allow advertisers but not publishers in the porn related areas. Anyway, if I am a porn advertiser and advertising on Google where am I going to come up? Only on Google Searches apparently, right? Seems as though anyone advertising in that area is not getting the same exposure (no pun) as regular advertisers.

    Google search chose to include everything--including porn--long before it became a business or even an operating search engine. Certainly including porn initially helped it to gain a foothold in the search arena competing with AV et. al. back in the late '90's.

    But they did draw that line when it actually came to generating revenue for their business. It is a decision that reflects directly upon the character of the business and its founders/owners. It's their decision! :)

    I don't think it is unfair, porn already does well and always will. But to those who think it's unfair, c'est la vie.

    I don't think it is unfair either. I just think that it is inconsistent with the do no evil philosophy. That would have been an interesting question to ask in the "Playboy" interview.

    You have to generate a certain amount of clicks to stay within the program? That sucks. That really sucks....I bet they won't let me in again once I'm out...

    So they can kick you out and keep your money?

    That seems pretty damn near fraudulent. Even if they return their share, and the advertisers share, and take it from you, you still sent people to those sites. Those people may have bought stuff there, they may have bookmarked it, you still generated advertisement regardless.

    They are basically taking your marketing ability for free when they do that, when they agreed to pay you for it. I fail to see how it's even legal for them to not give you what was in the account when it is terminated. (Except in the case of you clicking your own ads, which obviously doesn't generate anything for advertisers.)

    From Sec 6
    From Sec 11
    emphasis added.

    In other words you'd have to sue them to find out how it was "reasonably determined." I would think they'd be prepared if you sued them.

    I'd think they would have to prove the clicks were invalid if someone challenged them. Otherwise it's fraud, without any factual basis they take your money.

    If they can prove it, then it's a different story, as I said above. If you are clicking your own ads, then of course they can cancel and take your money, but to do it when the adsense user knows for a fact they haven't clicked their own ads is ridiculous.

    What's to prevent me from using proxies to click my competitors ads thousands of times a day, thereby getting them kicked off adsense and losing the funds they have earned?
