Google AdSense is Not Worth it.
Google Adsense is tricky to maneuver
I have been aware of Google Adsense for a few years. I never really paid them much mind. I repeatedly recieved the mail in my g-mail account for using Adsense. Finally I decided to give it a try. I broke down and said "Why Not?", what did i have to loose?
It seems that everyone, these days, is looking for ways to make money online. I can not begin to list the emails I have recieved on making money online. I was not looking to make money online. I simply wanted to have a blog and now a Hubpage. I finally gave in to the Google emails about Adsense. I signed up and started displaying ads on my sites. I never believed it would amount to much.
Just when I thought I was going to be able to contribute to the Humane Society, the money stopped coming in. I noticed I was not getting anymore income even though I was still getting clicks. I even sent a note to Google to ask why this was happening. I did not recieve a reply from my note. Instead, what I did recieve was a letter from the Google Team telling me I was making invalid clicks to my ads, and that they had terminated my adsense account. Now I am sure they have ways of monitoring their site. I appreciate that. What I do not appreciate is the fact that they are accusing me of making invalid clicks. I can assure you all, I did not. I do not know what happened. I believe in my heart that Google is a fraud. I can not control what someone else, somewhere in the world is doing. I believe that somewhere, someone was clicking my ads and caused me to be accused of invalid clicks. I am just so terribly disappointed. I am disappointed in Google. I am depressed at this event. It makes me hurt inside. I feel horribly violated by Google, and the individual that was at the head of this invalid click violation.
I am such a good person at heart. I always abide by the rules. Even when others say, "no one will know" I say, "but I Will". I can not help but feel terrible over this. I regret even trying Adsense. I am having a hard time dealing with this blow to my heart and soul. I know it is a stupid adsense account. I know I was not going to make alot of money. It is not about the money. I am hurt at being a victim to someones cruel joke. I am hurt because I wanted to contribute my income to the Humane Society, "for the poor animals".
This is why I am saying be very careful when entering into Google's Adsense program. I am apprehensive about the program. It is not there for you to make money. At best you will make a small wage. I made a whole 7 cents last month. If the day comes that I actually make a decent amount I will contribute to the Humane Society.
Trying to contact Google
Google is almost impossible to contact. I think that Google feels like they can just do what they want to people. I do not appreciate the way Google makes it Impossible to contact them. I had to spend a lot of time searching for the area where I could file an appeal. Everyone knows time is valuable, and I wasted so much time just trying to contact Google. I did manage to appeal their decision, but it did not do any good. They were adamant about their decision to cancel my Adsense account. I was upset at that decision. I let it go and came back to it later and now they have allowed me to reopen my adsense account. I hope the same thing does not happen again.
