Adsense ads gone = Banned Adsense account?

The simple answer: we were banned in Google Adsense — although temporarily.

The simple answer: we were banned in Google Adsense — although temporarily.

A few days before the ban, we received an email warning from Google about a policy violation we supposedly committed. The email goes:

While reviewing your account, we noticed that you are currently displaying Google ads in a manner that is not compliant with our policies.

For instance, we found violations of AdSense policies on pages such as http://www.pinoymoneytalk.com/forum/archive.php?BetDos+March+Madness+Special!/18820. Please note that this URL is an example and that the same violations may exist on other pages of your website.

As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on sites with content related to gambling or casinos. This policy includes driving traffic to online gambling sites through links or advertisements.

Please make any necessary changes to your webpages in the next 72 hours. Once you update your site, we will automatically detect the changes and ad serving will not be affected. If you choose not to make the changes to your account within the next three days, your account will remain active but you will no longer be able to display ads on the site.

Now, you should feel lucky if you receive such an email. Why? Because Google still gave you a chance to correct your mistake. There are several instances before wherein Adsense publishers were not given any warning emails. Their Adsense accounts were instantly banned on the first policy violation.

In our case, upon receiving Google Adsense’s email, we removed the post from the PMT forum. What we didn’t know, however, was that the archived page of that post is not automatically deleted even if the forum post is already removed. Thus, the page in question remained and Adsense did not recognize any change made. As a consequence, ad serving was disabled on our site.

We wrote Adsense to ask why the ads went missing and they replied that the page about gambling which they want removed is still on the site. We then manually removed the archived page and wrote Google back about the change. Their reply:

Thank you for making the requested changes to your site in order to comply with our policies. We have now re-enabled ad serving to your site.

Please note that because ad serving to your site was temporarily disabled, there may be a delay of up to 48 hours or more before ads begin appearing on your site again.

Adsense ads on our site reappeared one and a half days after ad serving was disabled. Income was slightly affected but still we’re happy we were not banned permanently.

Lessons from the experience:

  1. If you received an email from Adsense stating you violated one of their Program Policies, act immediately to rectify your mistake. Not acting on it might cause ad serving to be disabled which means no income for you.
  2. Do not argue with Google regarding the violation you  committed. They know it best because they created the rules. Ask them what you need to do in order to bring the ads back to your site.
  3. Make sure you follow Adsense’s Program Policies every time. Ignorance of the rules excuses no one.

  1. Experienced the same thing with Pinay Celebrity Online last september 2008. Issue was that mature content. But after removing the content we thought were the mature one, ad serving were back to normal. But I have a friend who didn’t get a warning and instantly banned on the spot. Be wary. Adsense may be the easiest earn thru ads, but firm on its policies and terms.
    .-= Pinay´s last blog ..KC Concepcion and Hayden Kho Video Scandal? =-.

  2. Beautiful Filipinas & Asians on Friendster

    close call. nakakatakot talagang ma-ban sa adsense lalo na kung philippinesl ang ang traffic mo.

  3. In my early days in adsense, i click my own ads with my publiser id log on!

    still not banned by adsense…maybe im lucky..never even get an email from them regarding violations.

  4. oo nga ung iba nga di na binibigyan ng warning message basta na lang nababanned..and so lucky nabigyan ng considerations tohh di ba???all of us must be vigilant and careful with our blogs.

  5. We really were lucky Google was not that strict on us regarding the violation. I personally know several site owners and bloggers who Google banned because of a minor policy infraction.

    The key here is to not knowingly violate Adsense’s TOS and Program Guidelines. When you receive an email warning, act immediately to rectify the violation. If you were banned, try asking for a reconsideration: Banned by Adsense? Here’s how to reinstate your account

  6. Thanks! I haven’t encountered this yet and I am yet to earn anything at all from adsense. If ever though, I hope they won’t be too mean to me and still grant me a few days or weeks to comply with their rules.

  7. can someone please confirm if it’s really possible to make a decent living out of google adsense? by decent i mean earning something like P30k per month on adsense alone.

    i have a few targeted sites up and to be honest earning less than a $1 is hardly decent income. any advice would be most welcome.

  8. Answering about Sandy’s concern, yes you can make a decent living out of google adsense but provided that you know what you are doing and it requires a lot of work.

  9. I have received something like this too from Adsense recently. They said they disabled the ad serving in one of my sites that offers video streaming of TV episodes and invited me to go over with their TOS. I also feel lucky for they did not suspend my account.

  10. Wow man, you’re lucky. It has happened to other publishers that their account got closed and they never could reopen it. I don’t know about you, but for me AdSense brings in much more revenue that any other program I tried.

  11. @ Sandy

    It is very possible to make a decent living out of Google Adsense. The owner of PinoyMoneyTalk is the best example. He earns more than that. You can also look at Macuha, Jezlau Concepts and Yugatech, the millionaire blogger. And for me, I’m earning more than P35K a month as a sideline, coz I’m still working in a publishing company right now.

    Try researching money making keywords with less competition, write posts using keywords you have chosen and build backlinks to your keyword optimize posts.

    BTW, blogging is not a get-rich quick scheme. It takes time to earn money online with your efforts. But once the money starts coming in, you will have a passive income you can rely on for years.

  12. This article really gives us big lesson most especially those who are dependent on Google Adsense as the source of online income. I was once received the same letter but my site was only starting. Now that my google adsense income is getting okay, I always check if I follow Adsense policies appropriately.

    Thank you PMT for sharing this experience. This is a very great warning to all of us.

  13. Oh, I feel the same way before. I still remember the time how many X Google disabled my account without even notifying me. You are 1 lucky person and Google did inform you that you must rectify your acct. Anyway, I’m happy because they gave me another chance!

  14. Orlando Calundan

    Blogging is just one way to make money online.  But when you drive less traffic to your site, you’ll earn less with Google AdSense.  There is more that you can do.  Leave a ClixSense link in your post so people may sign up as your referrals.  As they click ads, you’ll earn commission. It is a faster way compared to Adsense which is dependent on visitors click. 

    To start with ClixSense and see how it will make you rich, click this link: http://www.clixsense.com/?3842126&PMT

  15. Can anybody please tell me what to do for my site= http://nios-openboardresults.in/ to get approved by adsense because last time when I applied for adsense they replied to me that ” Site does not comply to google policies, but I checked my entire site and found nothing that violates google policies. So, please somebody tell me or help me for getting approved by adsense.

  16. Jerome Kristan Buban Nazareno

  17. Jerome Kristan Buban Nazareno

    Google approved me for 3 days its fast and I regret I wasnt able to moderate the content first before embedding codes 🙁

  18. I have a website http://philcpa.org/ and I applied for AdSense. I got disapproved when I applied and I really can’t tell why. I have checked every possible noncompliance with the requirements but still, it isn’t approved. Can someone check it for me?
