AdSense Account Disabled :: What to do next?

in: Tips and Tricks

Google AdSense account disabledOn 23rd September, I saw empty white space coming in place of Google Ads on abhisays.com. At that time, I ignored those boxes but later I realized that Google had banned my website from Adsense ad serving. This was big shock for me as I was using adsense on abhisays.com from last five and half years and it was the best source of revenue for me. Google AdSense allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, and rich media adverts that are targeted to site content and audience. These adverts are administered, sorted, and maintained by Google, and they can generate revenue on either a per-click or per-impression basis.

I got the following mail from Google saying “Google AdSense ad serving has been disabled to your site”

Hello,

Issue ID#: 18403531

Ad serving has been disabled to: abhisays.com

Example page where violation occurred:

So, AdSense ads were disabled on my blog, but fortunately account was active. The post that violated AdSense terms was about the link for Ramayana Download. But it was just an example. Google suggested me to remove copyrighted materials, and then appeal to re-enable the AdSense. Then I deleted some 7-8 posts related to movie and mp3 downloads and made an appeal to re-enable the AdSense using this link.

After submitting the form I got the automated reply saying

This message was sent from a notification-only email address that does not
accept incoming email. Please do not reply to this message.

Then  I waited for three days and received another shocking mail from AdSense team.

Hello,

Thank you for providing us with additional information about your site.
However, after thoroughly reviewing abhisays.com and taking your feedback
into consideration, we’re unable to re-enable ad serving to your site at
this time, as your site appears to still be in violation.

If you’d like to have your site reconsidered for participation in the
AdSense program, please review our program policies
(https://www.google.com/adsense/policies) and make any necessary changes
to your webpages. For more information regarding your policy issue, please
visit https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=113061 .

Once you’ve fully resolved any issues with your site, please visit
https://google.com/adsense/support/bin/request.py?contact_type=policy_violation_appeal
to request a second review.

We appreciate your cooperation.

Sincerely,

The Google AdSense Team

Now I was completely confused, what to do next as I had already deleted posts related to movies, mp3 downloads. I kept my cool and started browsing adsense help forums. After spending a good time on support forums, I found that Google Adsense has recently stopped delivering  its ads on Php Melody Video site. You cannot run AdSense ads alongside copyrighted content that violates copyright laws, or alongside links to such content. Since I was running Php Melody Video site with 1500 Hindi Songs, this might be the root cause of this problem. So finally I completely removed the Php Melody Video site from my server and made second appeal to re-enable the AdSense.

This time after 36 hours, I got this pleasant message from Google.

Hello,

Thank you for making the requested changes to your site in order to comply
with our policies. After thoroughly reviewing abhisays.com, we have now
re-enabled ad serving to this site.

Because ad serving to your site was temporarily disabled, you many notice
a delay of up to 48 hours or more before ads begin appearing on your site
again. We appreciate your patience and cooperation.

Sincerely,

The Google AdSense Team

And in this way I got Google ads back on my website!

Lessons learnt from this incident !!

  • Never, I repeat never give link of any illegal download website or torrent on your website or blog.
  • If you want to use Php Melody, better use without adsense.
  • Don’t place AdSense on “thank you” pages, registration pages or pages with no (or little) content.
  • Don’t place AdSense too close to videos, images or any content that might trigger accidental clicks.
  • If you are embeding videos from YouTube then always add lengthy and unique description to your videos

AdSense is a best way to make money online through original content on internet. So  never take this lightly and invest time to ensure you won’t experience of this kind.

    Google Adsense is a programme which is simply NONSENSE.

    I can attest to this fact, because I was using this programme since 2001, in Geocities, before discontinuing it for good, due meagre payments and creation of crowd on the blog.

    The revenues are meagre and at the same time their conditions are strict. For Rs.5000–10, 000 revenues per year, who will put all those garbage and make things on the blog look worse. It is better to go for private advertisements on the blog or website. Or else keep it blank.

    Google is a “Thug Company”………….
