          I am good, yeah. I went through a bad patch today with a migraine, but I am all better now. I feel so bad, about your hubs. Were you making money off them yet?

            Ohhh dear sad I hate migraines. I'd made £16 so far, not great but still... And the cheeky buggers still have ads on my hubs!! How rude! LOL!

      I am so sorry to hear this! I dread opening adsense and finding the same message, because then I would feel all the hard work I have put into making quality hubs will have gone to waste. Hardly anyone ever clicks my ads, and I never click my own, but some people can lose their account through others clicking! Some folk have said out there on the internet that it is really unfair because it is possible for a competitor to put you out of business simply by clicking your ads so you lose your account.
      I wonder it is possible to lose your account if someone goes on a mad clicking spree during the hubpages share? And of course you'd never know because you wouldn't see the clicks.. just a thought.

      Anyway, best wishes - sincerely hope you get it sorted smile

    Contact adsense support and ask them what was the reason for the ban. I'm sure they'll respond if you explain your case.

    You haven't clicked your own ads, but have you ever clicked on other Adsense ads? I'm curious to know.

    Have you sent links of your hubs to family or friends?

      Nope, I don't click on the ads and only two of my friends know about hubpages, so I called them and they said they hadn't clicked on a single ad :s

    Did all of your content comply with the TOS and content guidelines? Illegal Clicks aren't the only thing that can get your account banned.

    Sorry to hear about this. It's really hard to get this decision overturned, or even find out why it was banned.

    Did you get a PIN number and forget to enter it Sophs? Mine is in my mail box wiating for me, so I need to get off my lazy butt, but I wonder if it's that and something you can easily fix.

    Also if anyone notices invalid clicks on their pages you can report them to google yourself. I have had to do it elsewhere. I think it might help so they don't think you're in on it when this happens.

    Am really sorry to hear this too, since you're one of the most talented newcomers we have. I'm afraid we can't help you much with this, so hope you've gotten in touch with the staff etc. Meanwhile, don't let it get you down...and best of luck with everything! smile
