A few years ago, I had a website. I had an Adsense account and encouraged my friends and family to help out. My daughter, on a different computer, but same IP address, clicked on it too many times, trying to help mom, and I got booted.
So I have no adsense account. How will this effect making money on this site?
The number one way that people make money on this site will be unavailable to you. Once lost, AdSense accounts are not something that can hardly ever be regained, especially considering how you lost your account. (telling people to click is almost as big a boo-boo as you can make with AdSense).
You will be left with retail module options. Some people earn very well from these, some people do not. It often depends on how good and experienced a writer and salesperson you are.
thank you for your advice. Is Kontera as good? Should I try them? I do have an Amazon account.
I do okay with Kontera, but many people here complain they don't earn much from that. I found it took a lot of Hubs and many thousands of pageviews per month before the earnings became anything that added up to something.
But I don't know anyone who is running Kontera without having AdSense. That could change how that program performs.
I would go for Kontera and Amazon.
Losing your Google account is a major kick in the teeth, and it is also the number one reason why people get booted from the Adsense program.
This will have a negative affect on your hubs, and as Relache said, it is unlikely you will ever get the account back.
The best thing you can do now is suck up the fact that you will be earning less than you could, but that you can still earn a decent amount.
I personally earn more from Amazon than through Adsense.
you can try signing up with affiliate programs,advertising their products, thats a good way to make money too.there are also other companies where you can get banners for your side rather than google.
Sell Amazon products. I earn more money on Amazon than Adsense because one sale on Amazon is worth gazillion Adsense clicks.. ok that's an exaggeration. Use Kontera too it might help although it's not comparable to Google Adsense, it's better than nothing. Good luck! Sell Sell Sell
Have a nice day,
My experience has been that you could earn a lot more from Amazon. Ebay may be pretty good too, but I'm not an affiliate of them. Dang.

I questioned them month ago about my payment that was $30+ under what my account shows, and they said I'd receive payment later because for that particular quarter. Fine... It's been two months, and I questioned it as I...

Always figured there was something fishy about how you can't see your all-time earnings. Now that my hubtraffic has skyrocketed (averaging now 5000 hits per day) I finally started making some decent change off Kontera,...

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense...

Although I have enabled Kontera Ads on all my Hubs, I cannot see any Kontera ad on any of my hub. I visited my account page on Kontera's web site and everything is perfect according to my knowledge.

Since I've seen you here. One of your support staff found my account, so I retract my other thread. However, I'm still deleting your service off of my websites. Number one, your revenue reporting is AWFUL. The fact that...
