What can you do if you feel you have been unfairly disqualified from Google Adsense, It keeps you from joining many of HubPages programs such as the apprentice and ebay. Will hub pages open up other means of advertising. Google seems to use there computers and kick you out and never hear you out. Is it wrong to open a new account?
OMG nancynurse! I just had this same experience and I am fit to be had! Google doesn't give an explanation on why you were disqualified. I've tried to get a legitimate explanation but like you said, they are so computer automated my feed back was a programmed FAQ! Over all, I am so frustrated with hubpages! I've slacked off so much from publishing anything on this site because either I'm restricted from publishing because the same information appears on other sites, which is true because I published the same story, poem or article on other sites! That's what we author's do, get exposure! Hubpages is not the only publishing site on the internet. And to add, I haven't gotten not one dime from the ad program since I've been a member in three years, so something is fraudulently wrong here.
Getting banned from google is nothing to do with Hubpages. As to earning money online on any site through ad programs you have to write something that will attract visitors. After three years and many hubs you still only have the 10k traffic icon so you are not attracting much traffic with your hubs and the way they are titled and the content is unlikely to do any better elsewhere.
If you want to write fiction and expect to make money then publish it on amazon and other sites where you can sell it. As a webpage fiction and poems are not earners.
Thank you for your comments. I am still writing on hubpages. Trying to make some income on amazon. I did not realize I could publish on Amazon. Can you publish non-fiction? I just appealed to Google again for about my 5th time. Hoping some caring person will see my post and give me a chance. Thanks Nancy
You are only allowed one Adsense account per physical address. You can appeal the ban but if you did break the TOS you'll never get back in. They're extremely tough.
I have heard of people that actually did break the rules and got back in . Not sure why. They thought it was random or because of high traffic. i just wish Google was not our only choice to get into other sites such as ebay hubpages, and would hope hub pages would consider working with yahoo, bing, etc
WryLilt is correct. If you believe you have been unjustly banned, you can fill out an appeal form here.
I have also just been banned from Google Adsense they claim due to 'invalid clicks.' I am still in shock and have absolutely no idea who would be doing an invalid clicks on my sites. Now I just noticed that I am not active in the Hubpages Ad program either. Is this something that was done as a result of having my Google Adsense account disabled?
This is partly why I've asked in the past whether HP would ever introduce new affiliate programs, seeing as you only really have Google Adsense and Amazon that are separate. HPEP and Ebay depend on your Adsense status, which seems to me like keeping all your eggs in one basket. If you lose Adsense, you lose the other two as well.
You are certainly right Anti-Valentine.
I did fill out the appeal but it really didn't do any good because they ask questions such as if you know where people are going into your articles from. Of course, I do not have that information. People go into articles and youtube from all over the world. Then they responded by saying that my account was still inactive. There is no reason, no information given.
Hi Nancy, Yes, I believe there are other sites that I could try to join. I appreciate everyone's comments here. Thank you.
Hi Anti-Valentine, Yes, you wind up losing everything. I am removing all of my articles and will try to decide what to do now. I thank everyone very much for their comments.
I know how everyone who was banned feels. I think the worst thing is that you get no explanation. I have written to them but they are like this huge machine that just keeps on going and doesn't answer you or care.
I have to comment on 'LeanMan's comment that getting banned from google is nothing to do with Hubpages. I got my Google account disabled and within 2 days my Hubpages Adsense account was disabled. It was as a result of the Google account being disabled. So if a Google account gets disabled, the Hubpages Adsense will most certainly get disabled as well.
