How To Get Banned From Google Affiliate

Updated on July 14, 2011

Google Affiliate: The Policy

Before you think that you are important to this Google Affiliate program, just know that you need Google a hell of a lot more than Google needs you. You earn money from this Google Affliliate program, and it would be a shame to mess it up by doing some of the most commonly known mistakes that get people banned from Google Adsense.

The policies are very long but important. I have been through the Google Affiliate terms of use, and I will make a much shorter explanation of the things not to do with your Google Affiliate account, to prevent getting banned from Google. For those who are doing it now, live it up as much as you can, because it's all going to come to a screeching halt.

Much more consequences? Many people don't realize what else Google could do to them. Not only can this Google Affiliate ban them from using their services and stopping any future income that they could've had coming their way, but this giant corporation can also press criminal charges. People have been sent to prison due to scamming Google Affiliate for thousands, even millions of dollars. Be careful people, that could end up being you on the defendants side of the law.

2. Have content on you page

Wow, people.........seriously....Having this Google Affiliate program requires you to have content on your page....Duh!!! How hard was that to figure out.

You can't place ads on an empty page. If you have an empty page, your ads will have no keywords to match to, giving you the lowest paying keywords in Google Adsense history, not to mention that it would probably get your account deleted. Make sure the content is rich in detail and use your keywords often so that your ads can match up to that specific word, allowing you to generate a better string of income

1. Clicking your own ads

???Who would actually believe that this could be legal? Everyone should have been able to make an educated guess that clicking on their own ads would get them banned. Well some people actually believed that they could earn money clicking on their own ads. Sometimes I wish it was like this, but where would the effort and hard work go? Reading and paying attention is very important when using Google Adsense, as it is to every aspect of life.

  • Getting others to click your ads- Sure, you may earn a healthy amount of money by using your friends and/or family to click your ads, but you will eventually get caught up.
  • Using automatic clicking devices are against Google Adsense policies, not to mention that it's illegal in some states.

Which is worst to read, Google Terms or My Terms?

4. Free Sites and Site Behavior

I'm sure this has been a problem for some Google users. A lot of free hosting websites have automatic popups which could cause you to lose your Google Affiliate license.

Be careful as to which free hosting website you use, because you could lose your account due to constant popups that are apart of some free web pages. That's apart of the reason why most people encourage using a paid site to host your Google Affiliate account on, because there are no popups, and no possibility of your account being banned.

6.Illegal Content

Most websites that deal with advertising are against illegal activity. Illegal activity ranges from displaying scam skills, hackings, and file sharing.

You can't host ads on a web site that offers illegal content such as uncopyrighted musical file sharing. Most ads shown by Google Adsense are completely legitimate, meaning that it would probably be impossible for them to host an ad on an illegal site.

You can't advertise Google ads on mature sites either, so no pornography!!!

5. One Account

There is absolutely no need for more than one Google Affiliate account at all. If you fear that they will delete your account if you have multiple accounts, they will delete each and every account that you have in your possession.

7.Ad Placement

Okay, placing ads in the correct place when using this Google Affiliate program is very important. You have to know where to place it, so that people will be more vulnerable to clicking it. But you have to know how many ads placed on a web site is too much. You can't place more than three set of ads on one page. If you do so, you risk the chance of getting your account deleted

3.Contextual Ads

Do not run competitive contextual text ad or search services on the same site which offer Google Adsense competition in their field. Never try to create link structures resembling the adsense ads. Never use other competitive search tools on the same pages which have Adsense powered Google search. They do allow affiliate or limited-text links.

This will certainly cause complications for your Google Affiliate account and the other account that you have as well. It will be hard for all of your affiliate programs to keep up with your website because of the multiple programs present on the site. Not only does this cause complications for your affiliate programs and your website itself, but it will also cause you to lose your Google Affiliate account, not to mention potentially the other accounts that you have present on the website.
