Google Adsense Does Not Suck

Updated on June 20, 2012

Hello Article Writers,

I thought it was high time to update this Hub. When I created this Hub I was still so new to writing online to earn revenue.

I've read many stories about people losing their Adsense Accounts. I feel for them and can understand why they are angry and disappointed. Adsense has so many rules, guidelines and policies to follow. Adsense has been the hardest challenge I've ever tried online.

Throughout my first year of Adsense I made so many mistakes. I was placing ads onto blogs and websites I should have never placed Adsense ads onto. I lived and learned.

Over the past year while making many mistakes Adsense was at least kind enough to give me several warnings. They would write me to tell me I can't do this or that and to take down the ads from my blogs and websites. The moment I read the warning I took down the ads. I did not wait a few days or a week, I signed into my accounts, took down the ads and moved on. I also took the time to write them to thank them for warning me and giving me a chance to truly understand what I was allowed to do and not to do.

The blogs and websites I had ads on were up for a long time and because I never received any warnings about editing my work, I didn't feel I was doing anything wrong.

The point of updating this Hub is to tell people your not alone. In the beginning I was so fearful of doing the wrong thing and of course I did make a few mistakes however Google gave me a heads up, told me what to do and I did it.

Never try to fool Google Adsense. They will eventually catch up to you and if your lucky enough you will receive a warning.

Guys, if you have lost your Adsense account, there are so many other Pay Per Click Publisher Networks you can earn steady monthly income with. Kontera, Infolinks and Chitika too. I use these too and they work. It's always a good idea not to put all of your eggs in one basket.

I'm Defending Google Adsense

I don't know about any of you but I am so tired of reading Blogs and Hubs that put down "Google Adsense".

So many people claim you can't earn steady monthly income because Adsesne takes to much of the revenue generated by the ads placed on their Blogs and Hubs. OH PLEASE STOP. Maybe those people don't do enough work to earn the income they desire. Maybe they need to understand having a handful of Blogs and Hubs aren't going to bring the rewards they FEEL they deserve. Instead of complaining about it do something about it like for example "DO MORE WORK". Damn, enough complaining please. Start doing the work in order to achieve your goal.

I just finished reading a Blog (a Blog written with which was created by Google) created by some negative person how they have not seen any significant earnings in their Adsense account and what a joke Google Adsense is. What I thought was a joke is that this Blogger did not have any Adsense Ads on their Blog. Isn't that funny? I find it to be.

When I first joined Google Adsense I was in static. I thought I was going to be the next multi-millionaire guru online for simply creating a bunch of Blogs which have Adsense Ads on them. I was dead wrong. Even though I was wrong I still found the opportunity (which is a free opportunity) to create steady monthly income online using Google Adsense Ads to be a challenge. I also believed that I could EVENTUALLY start earning the income I desired using the wonderful free service as we all know as Google Adsense.

Keep in mind I'm not earning the $1000.00 plus per month with Google Adsense as of yet but I do earn a few hundred per month and I'm very proud of that. I showed myself that earning income with Google Adsense is possible and plan to reach my goal of a $1000+ per month in the very near future. Today's date is 9/22/9. I will be back to edit my earnings.

Don't stop writing articles. Continue to create new Hubs and Blogs. The more you write your income earning with Google Adsense will increase over time. Do you get it? Does it make sense to you?

I put together this Hub to share with all of you that you can earn steady monthly income with Google Adsense but you will need to do the initial work involved to do so. You also have to understand that simply creating Hubs and Blogs then just hoping for the returns to come in is just hope. You have to make it happen and have to have a true desire and interest to make it happen.

Creating Hubs and Blogs from my experience is a great place to start. A huge part of succeeding online is to learn how to advertise and learn how to get your ads onto search engines and classified ad websites. I create Hubs and Blogs so I have something to promote online. Do you get it?

I hope sharing my point of view gives you more of an insight to learning how to earn extra income online.

Please feel free to post any comments here sharing your experience with Google Adsense.

      I guess Google will warn their favorites who are power users. The rest just get deleted. I guess the same applies to adwords.

      Me neither billips. They have given me a warning once or twice when I first started to write online but if you fix what they want you to fix there should be no problems. What many people don't know is that there are dozens of pay per click publisher networks available to join free on the web. I belong to many of them. Thanks for commenting.

      Wow - this is an eye-opener for me - I have used adsense for over four years now, as I write for a variety of sites - I have never had a problem, nor have any of my other family members - you do have to follow their rules, but as you say, they give you fair warning if they are not happy with what you are doing - great hub - B.

      Hi David 470,

      I wrote this Hub a long while ago but I still feel the same way.

      I do understand your concern with having more views than what Adsense counts as impressions. I've noticed it too but nonetheless, I have watched my revenue increase each month. In June 2009 I earned nothing because I was so new. In the June 2010 I have earned a significant amount. Adsense does not approve of telling people exactly what we make but I can say I have been reaching the minimum payout for the past few months. I never thought I would ever make it but I finally did.

      Informative article. My goal is to try and make a few hundred dollars a month with adsense then if i do succeed like 1000+. One thing i find disconcerning though is how I have a significant more views than ad sense actually counts as page impressions. I know theirs like search engine bots but this is still disconcerning to me.

      Hello all,

      I want to share with all of you that I got my first warning from Adsense. They sent me an email, they pointed out what I was doing wrong and gave me sufficient time to correct the problem. I then wrote them and thanked them for giving me a warning. I still have my account and understand Adsense better than I ever did before.

      Hello Tony,

      Why don't you try a different Pay Per Click Publisher. Go to my profile page here at Hubpages and there you will see in my profile a few links to other Pay Per Click Publisher Programs. I only joined a couple of weeks ago and earned money already. I also created a Hub about the Pay Per Click Publishers.

      You are so welcome Tony. I am very curious to the answer Google will supply to you.

      Yes, there are other Pay Per Click Programs and I just joined Kontera. I will be joining more in the near future.

      I hope Google reconsiders you and again so curious as to why they discontinued your partnership.

      I'll keep an eye out for you next comment.

      Hello Tony,

      You have a very nice website. Do you belong to Hubpages? I didn't see a profile link to your name.

      I spent an hour searching through the google forum to try and find an answer. I would like to know the answer as to why all of a sudden you are not approved to the adsense program.

      I'm posting your comment here for two reasons. Firstly you deserve a reason as to why your account was disabled. Secondly I thought if I posted your comment here maybe someone has the answer for you. Maybe a Hubber has had the same experience and can fill us in.

      Have you thought of going through the help section and help forum section of Google? I browsed through it yesterday for about an hour but could not find someone who's topic or experience was the same as yours. I suggest you post in the google Forum and see what happens. Maybe someone there has the answer and keep in mind not only do visitors use the Forums to answer questions many of the google adsense staff answers questions. That's their job.

      So again, I will keep you comment posted here and lets see if we can find out why.

      Have you thought of joining Kontera? How about other Pay Per Click Publisher Networds? Yahoo Publisher Network? Soon I am joining other programs. I don't want all of my eggs in one basket.

      Keep in touch.

      Google adsense does suck sorry to say. I just opened my account 2 months ago and finally reached my 100 dollar pay day about 9 days ago (today is 10.15.09). This morning I checked my email to find an email from google saying that my account has been "disabled" well let me paste exactly what it says...


      While going through our records recently, we found that your AdSense

      account has posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers. Since

      keeping your account in our publisher network may financially damage our

      advertisers in the future, we've decided to disable your account.

      Please understand that we consider this a necessary step to protect the

      interests of both our advertisers and our other AdSense publishers. We

      realize the inconvenience this may cause you, and we thank you in advance

      for your understanding and cooperation.

      If you have any questions about your account or the actions we've taken,

      please do not reply to this email. You can find more information by



      The Google AdSense Team

      So, they have disabled my account and they didnt even have the respect to tell me why. Is this good business? I run an up and coming truck forum with a good amount of traffic. The ads are open to guests and members. Being that I have done nothing wrong I can only assume that a guest or member would have clicked ads in excess. It happens and for them to just kill my account over something I cant control is just down right dirty.

      The fact of the matter is I could very easily click any ad you have on here 50 times in a row and lets see what google does to you. My guess would be the same thing they did to me!

      Now I have two choices:

      1.Move on.

      2.Go crazy in an email war with google and take a month or so trying to get my account back... its not like they offer friendly phone service.

      They have not paid me for the advertising I displayed for 2 months but companies paid them to advertise on my site. Im sure they do not intend on paying me and I AM DAMN SURE that they didnt refund the companies that paid them to advertise on my site. Is that right? I dont think so. I basically just got ripped off by google as well as their advertisers. I think its time to speak to a lawyer because they broke a few laws.

      I also have nothing to hide. My site is now you tell me what you think about google!
