I’ve Been Slapped by Google: Adsense Disabled

I don’t really know how to tell this story because I’m still wondering why myself. How can someone penalize you for no good and specific reason? Is that normal at all? Now, i know there might be some reasons but, can’t they just be as specific as possible? Google adsense account disabled? Its ridiculous.

4 Google AdSense Rules to Follow if u Want to Make Money from Your Blog

OK, i know you might not understand what I’m talking about up till now so, let me explain. I was coming back from school some days ago and suddenly, my phone beeped and looking at it, i saw that i had a new email message. I don’t have the strength to read it then as i was very tired so, when i got home and opened my gmail account, what i saw left me speechless….. It said

Adsense disabled

I couldn’t believe my eyes because that was the last news i wanted to hear at that moment. So what did i do, i quickly turned off my phone and went to bed pretending that it never happened. When i woke up after 2 hours, i still went ahead and open the same email again and guess what, it wasn’t a nightmare.

At first, i didn’t border reading the whole story, i just saw the headline and went to bed, now i have to read it all at least, to see what i did wrong. The body of the message read….

 

Capture

After reading that, i was as confused as anyone of you would be if you were on my shoes. I quickly picked up my phone and started calling some of my friends including Babanature and Chadrack Irobogo. They were as confused and shocked as i was but unfortunately, they can’t do anything about it.

Why Did Google Disable my Adsense Account?

Now, i can’t really answer that question but, what i understood from that email and from what my friends told me is that, Google is accusing me of having invalid clicks on my ads. What this simply means is that, they believe that I/other people were clicking on my ad illegally.

If you read their adsense policy, you will see that they are against having any adsense publisher clicking on their own ad or persuading people to click on it by any way. But what that really baffles me the most is that i certainly did not do any of that. I understood their rules more than any other thing, and i know that they are very strict when it comes to enforcing them. So, why should i click on or encourage anyone to click on my adsense ad?

I just created my first niche site last month which I’m yet to write about here, and this thing happened now that my adsesne income has started rising. Although, I’ve not made that site public, so what could have triggered Google disabling my adsense account? Could it be that someone that’s visits my blog decided to click my ad several times at one visit which is also called click bombing, or could it be that it was spread over a longer period of time…or it was multiple people who did it at one time.  Whether it was to screw me over or help me,  I have no idea.  I never noticed any invalid activity, so it never occurred to me.

Am i the Only One on This?

Nop, I’m not. While i was busy researching all over the internet to find out why my account was disabled and to know what i should do next, i realized that I’m not the only one Google has disabled his adsense account before. In fact, it seems they enjoy doing that because they does it all the time.

I noticed that they have also disabled adsense account of many people including the ones of people you already know and those you don’t know although, its not everyone that have the desire to write about it. Below is just a few of them…..

1. Gauher Chaudhry @gauherchaudhry.com

2. Zac Johnson @zacjohnson.com

3. Eric Gatti @my4hrworkweek.com

4. Gauher Chaudhry @gauherchaudhry.com

Those are the posts they published after their adsense account was disabled. So, i will also urge you to go ahead and read those posts because you’ll equally find them very interesting and educating as well.

Lesson Learnt…

We all know that every bad incidence also have some equivalent lesson that goes with it. The main lesson i learnt here is to never fully depend on Google for anything. Also, if you ask most of those people i just mentioned here, they will tell you to never have all your eggs in one basket because, if that basket should fall, all the eggs will brake at ones.

Its always good to have some alternatives of anything you’re doing because anything can happen anytime and when it does, you’ll already have sometime to hold on to.

 

What Next?

That’s the one question I’ve been expecting from you, how did you know? Just kidding. OK  my friend Chadrack managed to write them an appeal on my behalf so, I’m still waiting for their response to see if they will re-approve my account and if they do, thank God. If they do not, life goes on. That’s why i still left the ads on this blog until they make their final decision.

As I’m waiting, i know that they are many other ways to make money from a blog and there are also many adsense alternatives out there which i will write about here on Monday so, I’m still researching. But, so far, my friend Babanature recommended Infolinks to me, I’ve already created an account with them. Let me see how they will do. Its very obvious that there is none to be compared to adsense out there but, When the desirable is not available, the available becomes desirable. Don’t you think so?

So, if you have any good alternative, i will like to know. The one i will not go for is Chitika because I’ve had some ugly experience with them in the past.

So, tell me…Have you had any issues with adsense before? Did Google also disable your own account? Please lets talk about it in the comment section so that we’ll all learn from your own experience.

It will also be very kind of you to share this post with your friends out there so that they will also benefit from it remember, there is love in sharing.

Thanks for sharing this with us. I was disabled too with no valid reason. They seem to be sending the same email to everybody.
I have been using Chitika but with no good results. To be honest, I hate the look. I have found Kontera to be the best alternative. I am currently waiting for Kontera to activate my account.
Thanks.

Media.net is another alternative to Google adsense and if you receive a lot of US visitors then i will recommend it for you. But if you can provide your log to Google they will evaluate it and re-instate you i have heard of people being reinstated after being disabled.

    Whats up? I’ve heard of Media.net from johnchow.com when i was starting. I applied for them as of then but they rejected me because of traffic issue. I will have to check them out again.

Harleena Singh - April 11, 2013

That’s not a good news, Theodore. I’m feel sorry.

About 3 years back when I started blogging, I created an adsense account. I was happy when I saw the ads on my blog for the first time, and by accident clicked on one ad while hovering my mouse over it. That’s it – my adsense account got banned the same day – before it even earned a dime for me. I soon got a new Adsense account using another email address. You too can try that and hope it works for you. 🙂

I recently heard of po(dot)st – that’s POST with a dot between O and S. They pay for the social media sharing; I haven’t used it, but no harm trying. All the best. 🙂

Chadrack - April 11, 2013

Hi Theodore,

Good you brought this up. I really don’t know what is happening because in the past few months I’ve read many bloggers lamenting the closure of their adsense accounts and for all, no one really have a clue of what the problem was!

I’ve been using Google Adsense for about six years now and have never had any problem with them. I think Google is seeing more invalid clicks now than before and as they explained in the email, it is clear that they want to give more value to their advertisers. This is what is also making them push new SEO updates into the market every now and then.

For now, I advise that you wait and see what they will do. Possibly, you can also write them again if after some days they did not reply. This will let them know that you are truly sincere in what you are saying. Just giving up when they did not reply is like telling them that you know you are guilty!

However, if after you write them again there is still no reply, another option that is open to you is what Harleena mentioned, open another account using a different email. I can say I’ve used other alternatives but none of them can be compared with Google adsense. They simply control the market!

Wishing you luck with this.

Theodore, that is one of the most honest stories I have read. I have never had my adsense account banned, but I am as confused to why this would happen.

I think they probably do this to people randomly.

i hope you get your account back up and running if not I hope you find something that works.

I do not know who you should try only if it happened to me I would focus more on affiliate income.

Good Luck.

Welcome to the club Theodore, you’re not the only one that Adsense banned without any reason and explanation. I’m really sorry to hear these news, but now your real blogging life begins. I think that there are much better programs from adsense.

And you can make much more money and knowledge without it.

I can recommend you media.net, I use them and they are paying much more than adsense.

Don’t worry about it too much and keep up the good work. 🙂

Sorry to hear about this Theodore so now you know how it feels just like I recently got slapped without any explanation whatsoever and I feel like I haven’t done anything wrong. I mean if I have then let me know what so I can fix it but to do that just because, that really ticks me off.

I’ve never had my account disabled but I don’t really use it much anymore. I never really made much money with it and I really preferred that people stayed on my site and clicked on the money making ads instead of the penny ones. That worked out really well for me in the long run.

That’s great that Chadrack was able to write something on your behalf so I guess it’s not a waiting game. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Good luck!

Well almost everyone in there blogging career face this. So it is common now. If you visit digital forum and click on adsense tab , i am sure u will find one such case. I was also banned for no valid reason in 2011. After that ,i never used adsense anymore instead i tried to sell adspace in my site and it is doing quite well for me. So everyone should try banner selling , its a great way to make money from your blog.

Hey Theodore,

Sorry to hear that man. That really sucks.

I originally started off online with a Adsense based gaming site that was making me quite a bit of money and out of no where my Adsense was disabled.There are ways to get around this and still use Adsense but I no longer depend on Adsense because its just not reliable. They can take it down and give you no reason.

I think the best alternative is not some other form of ads but rather to sell some product of your own.

Hey Theodore, I’m also fresh off a Google Adsense ban and no idea why. I suppose there are serial offenders who might sabotage your site by overclicking on your ads or Google just deciding to pull the plug on you because they can. I used it as a good wake up call to diversify your income streams so instances like these don’t bring you back to ground zero. I wish you well in getting things back up and running via alternative sources – it’s the best way to mitigate your risk. Good luck!

That’s weird how many of you get banned for invalid click. I had some invalid clicks before when my idiot friend click on 2 ads and closing it right away…I just didn’t get paid for those clicks. I also accidentally clicked on them a couple of times. Not anymore though. Also my friend accidentally clicked on his about 7 time per day, Google sent him an email saying “please don’t click on your ads” message. I guess he was lucky.

    I think Google was very fair to your friend indeed because they’re suppose to get his account disabled but, in my own case, I’ve never clicked on my ads since i created it, that is one of those things I’m always very careful with.

    Now, what i don’t know is why they disabled my account, i think someone somewhere might have done the click bombing but, the main thing now is that i have my account back.

    Thanks a lot for your concern my friend and have a blessed weekend.

Hello Theodore,
I’m sorry to hear about your incident. Did you try to contact Google to carry out an investigation or at least provide you detail the date and time that the invalid click occur? I know Google can shut down anyone’s account but at least be fare for you if you didn’t do anything wrong. I think this is an example to remind everyone has to be extra careful not to make any break any rule. I’m new to Adsense and I actually did accidentally clicked on my ads several times at the beginning. I was so freak out and regret of what I did even though it was purposely. So I was thinking to contact Google right away to explain the incident but just didn’t know how to. Then the next date, Google sent me email to “lecture” me not to click on my own ads. So I did modified my ads position and I didn’t got any mistake after that. Well, all I really hope is that you will be eligible to open another Adsense account soon.

Best Regards,
Cantel

Want to get it back.

Hi Theodore, really understand how you feel now your account has been disabled. You can try adclickmedia or media.net. They are perform just like adsense.

If they have a user forum, go to it and register there first.

I make cash every one of these sites while enjoying myself and
having fun. many web sites usually are not paying for that work you did.

Hello Nwangene,
I had also got the issue with my adsense account. I was in an important conference, hence there I wasn’t able to check my account at a particular time. As I reached to my home and open the adsense account, it says me “The account has been disabled for this e-mail id”.

I was like anything to ask the team of adsense why they did so. Same scenario was with me as you had. We can’t do anything about this. Filters must be there and I hope in future developers will help adsense earners a lot to make money. 🙂

    Its a pity Aman,
    Its bad the way adsense takes such decisions but, I’m happy there are lots of alternatives out there today. Lets not just put all our eggs in one basket in case of any uncertainty.

    Thanks for the visit 🙂

The same happened to me some months ago. (I don’t have a website, I used AdSense only for my Youtube channel.)
I filed two appeals but without success. I still don’t know what I suppodedly did wrong.

Here’s a video I did about the incident : http://youtu.be/SADDJY7e7cM

    So sorry to hear that Martin,
    The sad part of it that they will not tell you exactly what you did wrong. Just try and pick up some other alternatives and move on friend. Life goes on.

    Thanks for stopping by and please, do visit us again 🙂

Hello, I arrived to this interesting post and noticed that you finally got your adsense account back because you have an adsense block on sidebar. Maybe is a new account? How did you do it??? Please, share.

Theodore – Sorry to hear about your AdSense woes. Unfortunately in the end Google doesn’t even really know why they banned your account. They take too many automatic measures and depend on them for click fraud and the like instead of just ignoring the “click bomber” and moving on.

I’ve had it happen once or twice, but luckily for me I was able to get through it! Hope the appeal works out!

So sad about this bro, i really hope that that adsense never banned your account again, most times, when we receive such messages, it’ just makes one weak, Thank God you’re over it by now.

If you are like me and want revenge try the following, first use bidvertiser and chitika and switch your search engine to yahoo. It is google’s fault for not even giving a decent warning…

I think content really is the key! The better it is the more Google likes you, however it is always a lottery. You’ll never know until you try)

that is sad to hear, it is hard to get an adsense and getting it banned for no reason leaves anyone in a terrible state.

[…] As a result, Adsense became a demi-god as time goes. Applying and getting Adsense approval became a tiring process for many people, that’s not all; the worst part was that Google started limiting people’s account anyhow. […]
