    Why Google adsense and HubPages are banning so many Hubbers? What mistakes the Hubbers actually do?

      It's hard to answer a question like that. We don't know the specific cases you're talking about. We don't know the criteria used by Google or Hubpages. And we don't want to be mean by telling somebody what they're doing wrong!

      I think in your case, you might be getting hurt by English as a second language. I can understand your writing, but I notice awkward phrases and minor translation mistakes. It's not fair, but people tend to leave pages where the words don't flow. They prefer to read pages that sound comfortable to their ears as native speakers.

      I'm afraid some hubbers may hit the "poorly translated" flag on your content. English translation problems could also get you into trouble with Google.

      That's frustrating when you're writing informative articles. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

      The good news is that your skills with any foreign language improve, the more you read and write in it. I bet your newer Hubs don't get flagged as often.

        Actually we do know the criteria used by Google and HubPages.  Those are stated in the Terms of Use for both sites. 

        What we don't know is exactly what the banned users have done to be judged as being in violation of the terms and conditions because we don't have access to the same information about the users and their actions that Google and HubPages have.

        Until recently I had a referral user who had hundreds of Hubs and who I earned a significant amount of money from.  That person was banned in late October, and I felt it was due to their poor content development (their Hub titles and actual content frequently didn't match, content did not offer information that was helpful or useful, etc.).  I also know that person had a tendency to keyword stuff content, leaning heavily on the words "free" and "download."  Even further research on my own out on the Internet has revealed that user appears to have been engaged in backlinking practices that were extremely questionable as well.  Was it one of those actions that got her banned?  Or was it the combination of all of it?  I'll never know but it's clear that person did not get banned "for no reason."

      I doubt you just get banned for nothing.

      There has to be a process. Getting a warning, an email or something. I have to agree with Relache on what might have contributed to someone being banned. This is not something folks can question unless it applies to them individually.

    @jainismus - I agree with Greekgeek.  It's impossible to answer such a general question, other than by saying they ban people for not following their terms and conditions - but that doesn't say a lot in practice, as terms and conditions are generally designed to have wide interpretations.  I gather that in India, however, Google are currently banning a lot of people because of Adsense fraud and things have got tough for all Indians, even if they are honest ones.

    Regarding language, I would also agree with Greekgeek.  You are obviously an intelligent man who writes reasonably good English, but a native English speaker knows quite quickly that it is not your main language.  Even your questions that open the thread are not quite constructed correctly.  Your writing is readable and understandable and you have interesting things to say, but the language is slightly awkward to an English speaker which means that you are in danger of being flagged (although your English is far better than my Hindi for sure!)
