      It is almost impossible to get your account back. Now try to earn with Amazon, EBay, Kontera and other Ad networks like chitika.

      Your Hubs are showing URLs that lead to adult affiliate programs.  Google clearly states that porn is against their TOS. 

      You blew it in just about the worst way possible right off the bat.  No mystery here...

      1. KeithTax profile image75
        KeithTaxposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Relache is right; porn is not allowed. It is also against HubPages TOS, too. When you first create a hub there is a page that lists all the "don'ts," Read them carefully, or you might get banned from HubPages.

        On a positive note, write good, original material and use the remaining revenue sources available to you. There are no short-cuts. Don't try to sell sex. It has been overdone and you will not make money selling skin.

        You also need to clean up or delete your current hubs with offending material/links.

      Well i have the same problem and trust me i did not do anything wrong. Even i have got the message Disabled for TOS violation. I did not even make an adsense account.

    @rajan311:  You were ban, without even having an account?  Had you applied, or is someone else using your e-mail?  Had you had any other communications with/from google?

      rajan1311posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Well first i applied for the account and it was rejected saying that i needed to wait for 6 months. So i did not send the application again. Then, exactly after 6 months, my adsense status on affiliate settings page says disabled for TOS violation. I have not applied for the account again as of now, waiting for the hubpages team to reply.

        Ivorwenposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        You are speaking of the affiliate page on hubpages?  If you never had an account, then it should never have been activated.  I'm having trouble understanding how you could have been shut down. hmm Good luck with it.

        relacheposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I found that on one of your Hubs you were directing people to click on specific links as part of the text content of the Hub.  Google's terms of service clearly prohibits encouraging site visitors to click on or avoid specific links in any way.

          Thanks for having a look at my hubs. Can you please direct me to which hub you think is causing the problem ? I have not done anything intentionally as i don't have an account itself. I will make the changes required in that hub.

            relacheposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Sorry, I can't remember which one it was, but since you only have 17 Hubs, you should be able to review them and find it.  I'm not going back through them, as there's no reason or benefit to me doing your work.

              Really, did not expect such a response from a member like you.....
              I did go through all the hubs before i asked you, could not find anything like that. That is why i asked, if its so hard to have a look again, i am really sorry.

    I think from reading elsewhere online, as well as here, that a ban does not always mean a ban. You need to write to google and find out exactly why you've been banned, and if you are innocent of all charges, prove to them your innocence and they may reinstate your account.
    From what I've read, there are rare occasions when they do reinstate banned accounts.
    You have to contact them first though.

    Adsense has come a long way.  years ago they would just ban people no questions asked.

    Now they actually in most cases investigate and concerns they may have.

    Relache has obviously given you the answer you were looking for and because of that I wouldnt count on you ever getting your account back.

    Its just a matter of following the rules and you should never really have a problem.

    Cheers

    If you were banned for adult content links, then it is game over.

    For others, the most common violation is to use a header over ads that says something like "Sponsors". Use a generic non-endorsement word like "Links" or "Other Reading". That is usually a temporary ban.

    Not much you can do if they nailed you for ADULT links.

    There are alternative to adsense, Kontera on hubpages and outside it infolinks, castle media, valueclick, tribal fusion etc. Adsense is not the end of the world.

    I'm also having the same problem....... around 4-5 months back my application was rejected by google (not for hubpages but for blogger) I joined hubpages 3-4 weeks back and again sent them a request for approval through hub pages....... but weeks later learnt that my account has been freezed by them for TOS voilation.........

    Is there anyway i can get back my account..

    1. Marisa Wright profile image97
      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Where did it say your account has been frozen?  On HubPages? 

      Your account can't be frozen if you never had one.  I suspect that's just the message you get on HubPages if you don't have an account, because others have seen the same thing.

    Did you click on your own ads? That's usually why people get banned from Adsense.

    Marisa...........

    When i see status of my google adsense account on hubpages it reads "Disabled due to TOS violation"......... my account was never activated in the first place how did it get disabled is still a mystery to me.......

    Actually when i sent an automated requests to google for adsense for my hubpages account i had received one mail from google's side which by oversight i missed to read.........

    I checked this mail after three weeks of receiving it, by that time it was too late as they had already disabled my account almost 12 days back......

    thisisoli

    No i never clicked on any of the ads which were displayed by google on my hub pages..........

    If your account was never activated in the first place I am not so sure what is going on!

    When I woke up this morning, my account said disabled adsense for TOS violation. I applied for adsense 3 days ago. Can anyone help me or tell me what I need to do or what I need to change. I'm lost. Preferably someone that has overcome this. I need help, and the forums are the only place I know to come to. Please help me. Thanks in advance.

      I have responded to your question on the other forum thread. I have also responded via email. I am a bit unsure whether you ever had an AdSense account to begin with. Please respond to my email, and we will go from there.

      Fit4life, had you already pasted in your Adsense code, or did the message appear all by itself?

      FIT4LIFE......... same problem is faced by me...... my account is also disabled by google without even informing me on the grounds its being disabled only i can see on my hub page affiliate setting this message "account is disabled for TOS violation"...........

    I have not pasted a code in anywhere. On my affiliate settings someone has put a number in there and it is a publisher ID#. Now it is saying waiting approval since I changed some things on my hub. I had about 10-15 keywords and I removed them down to 5 and resubmitted. Do I need to put a empyt code capsule on my page? Thanks.

    1. profile image0
      Website Examinerposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      You don't get a publisher ID unless your Adsense account has been authorized. Keywords has nothing to do with it. You cannot, and need not, put code on your page - that is not what the code capsule is for.

      But you will still need to authorize Adsense to access your HubPages data, which is probably the step that remains. (See step 2 in these instructions).
