Once you've agreed to or accepted an organization's terms of service, they are in effect.
And just in case anyone is unclear (or in denial about how the TOS work), it's your responsibility to read and understand any and all terms before you indicate that you will accept the TOS. Because failure to understand does not absolve you of your responsibilities in regards to the terms in action, or any repercussions that might result from a violation.
I see I shall have to spell things out for you very carefully. This is NOT like anything else I have posted. Since ad-sense would not answer any correspondence I sent, I came here for an answer to a question I have never asked.
That being; can I be reinstated? Your comment about bitching is not exactly pleasing to me. Have I ever insulted you? If you don't like what I say; why respond. Silence is a virtue, you should try it some time.
yes i did shoot them a mail. They said that they can not do anything from their side and i should contact the adsense team. I just started a thread in the adsense forums and no one there could help me much on that....so i have just started writing for forums as of now...thanks for you help..
I believe Squidoo might be an option for you Harvey. If I'm reading their Payment FAQ properly everything goes into their account and then is divided up and sent out via PayPal. So you earn on their account - not yours.
But certainly read their TOS and rules again - don't go by me. I keep thinking I'm going to build lenses and never get to it.
Harvey I am sorry this is happening to you. I really do not know what to say about it as you have been offered some very good advice from others. While it may seem wrong to you I am sure that Google did not get as far as they have without understanding exactly what they can and cannot do. I am sure that if they are doing it it is legal.
Harvey, how's the discussions going with your lawyer? You going to go for the class action? Because Google has heard your explanation and I guess their non-response means that no further discussion will be entered into nor will they be changing their mind.
Sorry to hear about your ill health Harvey. Organising a lawsuit is hard enough for someone who's feeling in a fit and fine condition.
The Google Adsense Team don't give second chances. They have hundreds of thousands of Publishers and who knows how many thousands apply each day, so losing a few hundred every day would be of small concern to them.
I'd be doing as Marisa suggests and investigate new options. Squidoo has a different feel to it, and may feel difficult at first for a long time hubber, but once you get used to it it's almost as easy as publishing a hub.
What is a TOS violation? A found that on my affiliate settings today. For three weeks it had said; You severed your affiliation with Hub. I never did that. I explained to Ad-Sense what I believe had happene, and was...
I have 31 featured hubs - most of which fir the stellar hub category. So why does Google keep sending me this:As a result of this review, we have disapproved your account for the following violation(s):Issues:Site does...
