Updated on July 25, 2012

Google Adsense is one of the best way to make money online and is the most widely advertisement earning program on the internet. There are a lot of people who make money with Adsense in the legitimate ways and even make a good living with Adsense. If you have a Google account and a website which is atleast 6 months old, then you can easily apply for an Adsense account. Once your Adsense account is approved and activated, then you can place the Adsense ads on any number of website you have. You will be getting paid for all the clicks and even impressions for your Adsense ads.

One of the major issues with Adsense is that Google immediately terminates your Adsense account in case they find any illegal or suspecious activities that generate clicks on the Ads. This will be a real shock for those who earn a handsome amount through Adsense and will really destabilize their financial status. As a publisher, rhere are certain things that we can do so as to prevent our Adsense account from being banned. Here are 6 important ways to safe guard our Adsense account from being terminated. Hope that is serves useful for all the readers.

1) Stay Away from Illegal Activities
In the hope of making huge money through Adsense many of the publishers tries many illegal activities to get clicks on their advertisements. Actually such activities are against the terms and conditions of Google and when they find out that publishers are using illegal ways to generate clicks on the advertisements, they will immediately terminate the Adsense account without prior notification.

2) Stop Asking Friends to Click on Your Ads
Asking friend regularly to click on your Adsense advertisement is another serious threat to your Adsense account. Most of the Adsense newbie try to get more clicks and earnings from their Adsense by asking their friends to click on the Ads. While doing this regularly, Google will be noticing unnatural clicks from particular geo location or IP address in a regular pattern. This will send negative signals and will prompt Google to cancel your Adsense account.

3) Place the Ads as per Google Norms
There are certain publishers who try to fool the readers by placing the Ads in irrelavant positions which has been proofly prohibited in Google Terms and Conditions. This aggressive method of placing ads actually disturbs the usability of a web page and visitors might be clicking these ads only by accident. So if you are using such tactics for earning more from your Adsense account, then it is high time that you stop it otherwise face a Google Adsense ban.

4) Stay Away from Adult Content Site.
Most of the publishers tries to place their Adsense ads aggressively on adult contents and this is really against Google's Terms and Conditions. While doing this, Google may even ban your Adsense account and it is better to stay away from such activities.

5) Never Use Spam Content Site
There are some publishers who hope of getting money from the clicks on the Ads that are places on spam content sites. Spam content sites include irrelevant generation of spam content on a webpage that are against the terms and conditions of a website. At times spam content may be placed on the webpage even without the publisher being aware of it. Take care of such things and clear out spam content or comments that appear on your website or either remove your Adsense ads from such pages so as to save your Adsense account from being banner.

6) Inform Google In Case of Suspicious Activities
Whenever you notice any suspicious clicks on your Adsense ads, feel free to contact the Adsense support and inform them about it. Once some the guys whom I knew tried to intentionally click on my ads from their system, hoping to ban my account. But the moment I realized, I informed the Adsense team and they replied that they will take it in their consideration. After that the clicks from those guys were recorded, but no earnings appeared which send the strong message that Google had really looked into the issue. Always inform Google about such suspicious activities and safeguard your Adsense account.

      This is great information - it is good to know that there are ways we can make sure that we keep our Adsense accounts intact. How sad that someone would deliberately try to get you banned. I am glad you were able to figure it out and that notifying them worked for you. Voted up.

      This seems straightforward enough. I have to admit I am sufficiently spooked by stories of Google. You have made me a bit less wary. Thank you.
