7 Important Tips to Prevent You From Getting Banned from Adsense
7 Important Tips
I know that reading long program policies may be boring. Don't worry, BloggerDollar is here to let you skip the boring part and dive in to earning cash.
However there are some facts you need the know about your most reliable source Adsense. If you don't want to get banned from Adsense and spend rest of your life looking for a subsitute, keep some important facts about Adsense in your mind:
1. Invalid Clicks
Google has a strong policy to prevent invalid clicks to keep their advertisers pleased. Don't forget that Google guys are propably smarter then you so don't even bother creating artificial traffic/clicks.
2. Own Clicks
Don't ever click your own ads. Even if the ad actually interests you or you just wanna check out if the ads work. Google has the magical powers to sense you clicking your own ads so be careful. If you click your own ads by mistake inform Adsense about the situation. 1 or 2 clicks won't get you rich so it isn't worth the risk.
3. Encouraging Clicks
Don't ever use terms like "click my ads, visit my sponsors, make me rich, i will die if you don't click those links". (However you may use the term "Sponsored Links")
Don't try to trick users by hiding ads, showing as part of text etc..
Don't point out ads by arrows, images etc..
In this situation Google magic works again and you will be caught.
4. Contextual Ads
This one is a little confusing. Google allows other ads and PayPerClick programs to be placed on your website but other ads shouldn't be resembling google ads. So placing an ad linking to dirty sites is damaging google's reputation so that is prohibited (That's understandable).
Google also doesn't want competition so ads resembling Google Ads isn't allowed. That one is a little confusing. This term may be to prevent Yahoo's affiliate service (which looks like Google ads in a sense). So be cautious before placing other ads to your site.
5. Illegal Content
I think I don't have to mention mature content, hacks/cracks are illegal. You have to be careful with the material you publish because sharing a mp3 you like with your community may seem innocent to you but that is illegal.
6. Site Behaviour
If you have got a free hosting you should check if your service is no pop-up. Many free hosting companies force their pop-up ads with your site and this will ban you from Adsense.
7. Ad Placement
You can't place more than 3 ad units and 2 search boxes. Even if you do place more than 3 ads they won't be displayed. There is no penalty for that but broken links in your website is a bad impression for your community.
