Google TOS Violation

    Has anybody else got Google ads disabled for getting too many clicks? I got a violation, because I got too many clicks or something. How does THAT work??

    I did once, I had to email Google and the website the ads were on and it took like three days to get it all straightened out. Someone tried to 'help' me make money and clicked on all my ads once. If this happened to you, take the good advice someone on here offered to me. Tell people you make residuals, not by ad clicks, because all too often people will try to help you make money.

    Google is pretty accurate at detecting click fraud.

    You might consider reading the TOS(terms of service) for Google Adsense, and while you're at it, read the TOS for HubPages.

    The ads were disabled by HubPages Staff. Google might have identified your hub for click fraud? I don't know.

    But, if you're getting too many clicks by many of the same IP addresses then there is a good possibility there is click fraud.

    Just a thought. The best thing to do is contact Staff- Team@HubPages.com

        How do all these people who work in an office get away with using the company's time to write hubs??

    The ads were disabled? Do you not mean that your AdSense account was disabled? It would be highly unusual for HubPages to disable ads because of click fraud, I think.

      The adsense account was disabled. I just emailed hubpages at Team@HubPages.com...and had emailed Google adsense as well.

        That is what I thought. My guess is that HubPages will ask you to take it up with Google. Good luck!
