    when I first wanted to sign up for an ad sense acount , I wanted to register using my blog at blogger. com, but this was disaproved and I don't know the reason for this. I never had an active adsense account, but when I tried to activate it here in my page, I saw a message saying: "Disabled by Google for TOS Violation"

    I didn't violate anything, I may have done something wrong due to misunderstanding because they have so many rules.

    Any help ??

    Thank you so much

    HubPages cannot help you with a disabled AdSense account. Google has an appeal process, where you can file a request to have your account reinstated. It is not often granted, but that is the only option.

    Here is the link to the official explanation, which further links to the appeal form:

    The expression "disabled for TOS violation" is a default statement appearing at all disapproved applications.  The disapproval may be due to not meeting some of Google's stipulations including 6-month period waiting for some locations.  There may not be any substantive violation as such.  If you are re-applying in the same email address of the blog, and if you do not maintain your blogger.com account properly, it may not be approved. 

    If you are not maintaining your blog properly and not interested in the same, you can ignore it and can apply through Hubpages with a different e-mail. You may be approved, provided you maintain your Hubpages account properly.  Multiple accounts is against Google TOS.  In this case it is not multiple accounts, since you do not have an AdSense account.

      That is incorrect. I disagree with almost every word in your post.

    True WE ..
    @Mdlawyer you would be sending out wrong messages.. TOS violation or account disabled would often mean that the person is banned and cannot get his/her account back. Google also keeps track of your multiple emails accounts and applications.. through your Ip adress so it may not really help to do that ..
    It may help to check with the Google support forum..that is your only hope..engluara

    The OP said his application was rejected and that he has never had an adsense account.

    In that case, he could not possibly be disabled for TOS violation, because he never had an account in the first place.

    It could be (not saying it is, just could be) that something is wrong with the message received here at Hubpages?

    Sofs is right though, contact Google Adsense forum for help.

      Is it not possible to be in violation of Google TOS even though the OP does not have an 'adsense account' ?
      eg Google would look at the URL submitted and if it does not comply with their TOS, Goodnight sunshine... No account smile
      Then again I might be wrong?  It has happened but only on the odd occasion smile

        That is not what the OP said. The OP said: "I never had an active adsense account." There is a difference. If Google granted the application, then detected some prior banned account or other TOS violation, they could have disabled it before any ads were ever shown. This is not an uncommon occurence. An appeal is the only remedy for a disabled account.

          You seem to have missed the point I was advancing for the OP consideration?
          The point being:
          You can still be in violation of Google TOS - even though you DO NOT have or never had a Google Adsense account-
          Cheers

            Not really. I agree with your point. I think the OP's situation is confusing enough already, so the main idea would be to point him in the right direction. I hope he will arrive safely at the appeals form. Cheers to you, too!

    I disagree. I think very likely, AdSense has spotted a prior banned account. Either that, or it was disabled early on because of a TOS violation - I have seen this happen before. Google does not confuse their terminology. "Disabled" means disabled. Therefore, I still believe that the appeals form is the only appropriate remedy.

    On the support forum some ten months ago I did see similar issues being discussed. Google had approved their account but before the account could be activated Google had sent out a message that the account was banned for TOS violation.. ( this was specifically for people in  Asia or countries with 6 month waiting  period) I did not follow up to understand what became of them.. I just thought I could share this information.

    As I always say at this forum, I don't want to jump to judge someone is outrightly ill-informed or misguiding, because that is not proper.  What I have said is absolutely right.  I have personal experience with the account of a few persons under similar circumstances.  What I know I have stated for the benefit of the affected person.

    @englaura.  At your Hubpages affiliate settings it may be showing as "disabled by Google for TOS violation".  But if you click on the link to your AdSense account and sign in, most probably you will find your AdSense application there and Google asking you to "resubmit" after rectifying the problems that caused the rejection.  That itself is the proof that you are not "banned".

    In my personal knowledge, the same thing happened to a few persons and they rectified the problems and their applications were approved.

    That is why I said  "disabled for TOS violation" is a default message for disapproved accounts and there may not be any substantive violation as such.
