Well, that’s nice, very nice. I haven’t got a clue of what I did wrong. And after filling in the online appeal form they told me they had reviewed my account information, taken my feedback into account, but still had concluded that my AdSense account has posed a significant risk. And I have no idea of what’s wrong with my account…
How much payment you have received so far from Adsense?
How much balance is lying with them due for payment?
Around $ 14.- A fortune!
Haven't received it yet, as they only start paying after the first $ 100
Google does not like adult topics. Chances are they consider your Hubs about sex and BDSM examples of pages/topics that are too risky to their advertisers.
Personally, I'm really surprised that your hub on being a Domme is being allowed here, as BDSM is in no-way a G-rated topic. (and that's my opinion as someone who IS involved in the lifestyle).
Well, if that’s it then that’s just too bad. No Adsense income then
Are you really? I have seen countless hubs on adult topics here. And the text in that particular hub is nowhere explicit, is it?
Man after I read your post I saw my google notifier chime up with the line "dear publisher..."
and I freaked out...I DEPEND on adsense income, it's not just a thing I play around with, so this freaked me out to see this... so I go to load my google mail to see what it is.. of course my computer freezes up so its taking forever... sweat beating off my forehead...
and it was this...

I also went back over my passion hubs and did a little editing of tags and pictures.. although they fall within guidelines I had "sex" as a tag in two of them (deleted) and one or two racy pictures (trunicated the race out of that horse)... you got me all parinoid...
In which case its time to diversify your income streams: being dependent on any one entity is not a smart move
yea well adsense is a pretty lucritive source and I used many different ways to tap into it, also I'm working on affiliate networking as well as a couple of signup sites (like signing up hubbers so I'm diversified, but the major bulk of income will come from adsense, it simply offers the easiest way to make the most money...
Adsense is my smallest income source, do you earn quite a bit on adsense?
I think its the easiest way to make a little money and a lot of people start with it but from what I've learnt its much easier to make money from affiliates sales and marketing your own products
Ananta My Friend: You are just another VICTIM of those SPAMMERS here at HP trying to Disable Google Adsense Accounts of those Publishers who don't like those Picture Hubs. Almost all Genuine Hubbers' Adsense Accounts were tried to be disabled. I was not spared. But I am much more clever than those IDIOTS.
Also it is very much frustrating that HP Admn is not doing anything to protect Genuine Hubbers. If you observe, many of the genuine and senior Hubbers are NOT participating actively here on HP. Do you know the reason ? They are all fighting to protect their Adsense Accounts.
Joining HP was a BIG MISTAKE. With over 180 Hubs, I have made around $5.0 in the last 6 months. ALL of my High Ranking Hubs were STOLEN and published Elsewhere and there was NO GOOD Support from HP Admn. To ADD to the Misery, these Spammers are getting our Adsense Accounts Disabled.
HP: I also suspect some of the competitors of HP. You should take this very seriously or you will lose all good Hubbers. It is time for you to take this seriously and take serious action.
180 hubs? It shows you have only 1... and been here 5 weeks, not six months...
You got me all confused...
Actually no the OP has been genuinely banned from Adsense. What you are talking about as has been mentioned in several other threads, is the malicious using of someone's adsense account number on an inappropriate site. This results in a WARNING letter not a ban from Google. It can also be easily prevented by only allowing your Adsense account to be used on certain websites - you do this on Adsense /Adsense Setup / Allowed sites in Adsense and list ONLY your urls plus hubpages.com - to stop this problem.
If your hubs are stolen and duplicated - you will get a duplicate penalty and your hubscore will drop - this has NO effect on your google ranking - but if it bothers you write to team@ hubpages and they will restore your store. It has no effect on your search engine rankings because hubpages is an authoritive site in google and your page was published first - both should make sure that the stolen copies are disallowed. You can also file a DMCIA complaint against the plagarism
I have no idea how you expect HubPages Admin to a) influence Adsense or b) stop the theft of content on the internet - grow up and be realistic and take responsiblity for your own success or lack thereof
Thank you Lissie for all the explanation. Yes, I am already using the "Allowed Site" Option in my Adsense. I did this after receiving a mail from Google.
I have already posted on this topic earlier but there was no satisfying response from HP.
I worked for 2 Days and 2 Nights on one of my High Ranking Hub. I did not sleep for 1 Night working on this. It was ranked 1st in Google and yahoo. It still ranks 1st in Yahoo but has vanished from Google. Infact the duplicate ones have found their place on the first page of Google.
I expect HP to do something to protect the Adsense A/Cs of Hubbers because they must be having some kind of Agreement with Google and that is why they are able to do this Business. They must be knowing people at Google. They can discuss the matter with them and come out with some Solution. This is all I am expecting from HP and I guess MOST of us expect this from HP.
Sure they have an agreement with Google - but they are a 5-person (ish) start up company - do you think Google needs them - I don't think so. How can there be a solution: anyone can go to any website on the internet which is running Adsense and see the Adsense ID being used - this is because the basic format of the web -html - is a simple text language and the source is easily visible. This is not going to change - every browser in the world works because there is a common base of code which is used to display web pages.
If you worked for 2 days straight to promote a hub I imagine you created an awful lot of links in a very short time to the site - if you then managed to get a lot of traffic you have probably been sandboxed - google knocks you down the SERPS and leaves you there for a month or 3 - this is common accross the internet- its how the Google algorithm works and has nothing to do with HP. It will be back eventually
If there is an exact duplicate of your site - why don't you file a DCMIA and get it taken down?
Hi I don't do any Google, I let people advertise on my various Niche Sites, I attract rather alot of advertisers, and make around $30,000 per year I know that isn't much and you wouldn't live on it. But it makes more sense to me than passive income, where as you see not many would achieve that figure. It pays my study costs. Gets clothes and is useful extra dosh. For me tghis is just another traffic site.
I am not sure what you expect HP to do about it.
I have not had this particular issue, because I argued in favor of not stopping these photo hubs. Not because I like them, but because I think people should be allowed to do what the hell they like within HP's TOS.
But - I have argued with people who push forex trading, which is one of the biggest scams know to man.
As a result I was personally attacked, and had several of my websites hacked into and destroyed. Fortunately, I had backups, but I was forced to spend hours of time fixing the problems and then take counter measures.
My name was mud on several affiliate marketing forums for some time.
As for having your content stolen - this happens to me all the time. I have to deal with it myself. As should you. It is your content.
And there are more than enough hubbers who steal content and re-produce it here, so how is HP to determine who owns what? An individual signed declaration of ownership for every single hub?
Sceptic - the operative words on Jerrico's post are "will come from," as in future tense, as in not done yet.
Duplicate ID? You mean second account? You say it so openly - is it allowed here?
Aha! Thank you, it's good to know if you want to pull a prank on somebody
You are right Lissie that hubbers whose publisher code is stolen are issued a warning letter. However, If you visit different forums discussing about this topic, you'll find that A/C of almost all webmaster/hubbers/bloggers once issued warning mail was disabled within few hours after they have listed their sites in the "My Allowed Sites". If you look different threads related to this issue at HP, you will find that several hubbers after receiving warning mails from adsense were confident that they have their sites listed in "My allowed sites" list but their A/C were disabled within few hours of their response. One more disturbing trend visible from this action as evident from statement of hubbers/bloggers: Most of the bloggers/hubbers got their A/C disabled after receiving their first payment from adsense. Most unfortunate part of the story is: Adsense experts take no pains to verify the facts.
I would like to inform hubbers/bloggers resorting to activities such as hijacking publisher ids of others and pasting on adult pages have themselves to face the consequences. Hubbers whose accounts have been disabled for no fault of their own if retaliate through actions such as invalid clicks etc, the list of the disabled accounts will get longer and longer. One thing everyone should remember that if you make enemies, no option exists to save your adsense publisher ID. One can not save its adsense account from getting disabled even if all the sites are listed in "My Allowed Sites". Its no secret who are the people here resorting to such activities but it is no use of naming anyone in absence of any evidence. However, hubbers whose accounts have got disabled, are aware about the culprits.
The hubbers who have fallen victim of hijacked activity can feel the real burns. I am writing a hub to educate innocent hubbers how they can save their adsense account. However, its next to impossible to do so. Even then one should take all the precautions.
bond008 / scam whoever you are that may or may not be true - but its completely irrelevant to the original question - go start your own thread!
If there is an exact duplicate of your site - why don't you file a DCMIA and get it taken down?
Yes, There is EXACT COPY of my HUB..Same Text......Same Pictures...NO Backlink. I even made the complaint....No RESULT.
Did you fax a DMCA complaint to the appropriate address - I believe it does work - you could also file it with the domain hosting company the person is using .
I've never done it myself but I believe it does work but I imagine it might take a month or so - you know that you can also file the DMCA with Adsense and get their Adsense account banned?
Dear Mark: Thank you for the GOOD Explanation. Yes, I argued against those PHOTO HUBS. Yes, you are right, people are free to publish anything withing HP TOS.
The Good thing after joining HP was that I learnt a GREAT DEAL from YOU and HP. I applied all the tips and tricks into 2 of my websites that I own and the PLEASANT SURPRISE was 8-10 times increase in Adsense Earnings.... Yes, Trust me, 8-10 Times increase in Adsense earnings.
I have taken all the precautionary measures to protect my Adsense A/C and MY Contents.
We can only show our sympathy to people like Ananta and Gamer Girl whose Adsense A/Cs got Disabled.
Thanks you and Have Nice Day !
Well, I've tried to follow the discussion, but it seems to me it has diverted. And I still don't know what I can do to prevent this from happening. Due to circumstances I asn't able to publish for quite some time, so I can't think of anything I've done or changed recently that caused this to happen... The hub on how to become a Domme was published in July, so I don't see why it would get me in trouble now
There is a suggestion that because you have spoken up against the sexy photo hubs, some of these hubbers have deliberately caused you adsense account to be suspended.
I do not know if this is true or not, but there has been talk of it. If not it is a strong co-incidence that both you and gamergirl, who also spoke up against them, have both mysteriously had your adsense accounts disabled.
so if your account has been disabled it means you will not be earning from adsense anymore so whats the point of making hubs. It is really disgusting.
Thank you, Mark. I'll report that to Google then. Are there any other measures I could take?
Part26 : You Remember Ananta. I am 200% Sure it is Him - Part26.
If you are really SERIOUS about this Internet Business and want to make some fortune over Internet, here is what you should do:
1. Develop a New Website. Design and Publish first 10 Pages. Give it your Best Shot. The initial investment is not much. I spent only $25 for 50 MB space and URL Registration. Do some research and then select a topic for your website.
2. Apply for a NEW Google Adsense A/C. You can Apply it in the name of some other Family Member or even in your own name but make sure that you don't use the same address and Telephone Number. I am sure you will be approved.
3. You have learnt a great deal here on HP. Utilize whatever you learnt. Use Quality Content + Pictures (with Alt Text) + Videos + RSS + Quality Links.
4. You can easily make $10-$20 per Day with a website of 100+ Pages. Trust me.
5. NEVER Provide Links to your own Blogs or Website here on HP. It is just USELESS and HARMFUL to provide links to personal blogs and websites here.
I consider HP just a FUN Place and a Place to Learn. That's All.
Hope this helps.
Ehh.... I don't know what you are referring to. Part 26? Part 26 of what? [puzzled]
No, I don't. I'm not serious about this internet business. For me this is merely pastime and fun. And about expressing myself, sharing, learning. Not about earning
It's absolutely good info, scam. Thanks for that. For now I'm fine just the way I am, but I'll keep it in mind, should I decide to take the business side seriously. Thanks
Thank you, Ananta my friend, for posting that link. I know I said no more forum posting, but I have to chime in on this. I was warned about someone putting my ads on a porn site, and I had correspondence back and forth with Adsense for about 6 days about it. I thought they were aware that I was doing nothing wrong, and that I would be o.k. I also whitelisted my account with Adsense.
What happened was that the people who are after us (the ones of us who came out against their picture hubs) started doing click slamming on my whitelisted sites. They could not put my ads on their porn sites anymore, so they did this to get my account shut down. It worked. I'm now suspended from Adsense, and no doubt, will never be reinstated. I filed an appeal, wrote the article above, and started a petition drive to get Google to listen to us. I'm trying now to get this picked up by a major news outlet. It's time Google is held accountable.
I am due for my first payment next month, and now whether I will receive it, or the remaining money in my adsense account, is doubtful. I am against Corporate steamrolling of any type, and if you are against it too, I encourage you to sign the petition and pass the link along to your friends. We're already getting attention from Twitter, and if all of you will Stumble, Digg, do whatever you can to get this issue attention, I would appreciate it.
I don't hold Hubpages responsible. I am disappointed in their stand on this, but it's their business. I will be taking adsense ads off of most of my hubs, but not all, because I do think that Hubpages deserves to get some income from the bandwidth used to display them here. These days, everyone online wants something for free, and nobody wants to be told they have any obligation to pay. I do feel an obligation to pay my way here, no matter whether I choose to further participate or not. It took me a long time to get to the $100 mark (14 months), so I'm not making HubPages rich. If I got $100, they got $100, so I'm thinking that should pay for my bandwidth plus some for a year. Heck, you can get a hosting plan for less than that!
I want to apologize for causing this with my hub, although I'm well aware that none of us had to participate in or comment on that hub. I surely did not think that we would be victimized like this. I still think that Hubpages should appeal to adsense on our behalf, those of us who have been victimized because of the hubs they allow to proliferate here, but I am at peace with the fact that they won't.
So that's that. I have no adsense either, and I don't really think I'll miss it. I'm writing on Today.com now, and I get paid there, so that makes up for the lost adsense income. It's a good place. Some of you might want to try it.
I'm not sure what else you think we can do about it. We've written to Google on your behalf, offering to vouch for you... in fact, Paul Deeds just sent off another email to them this morning. We've tried to do anything we can to help. If you're referring to the fact that I refused to ban other users based on your accusations, I did offer that if you could provide some proof that these users were involved, I'd be happy to take action, but I did not receive such evidence from you, and in fact, my own investigations suggested that these users were not involved.
Please do let me know if there is something else I can do to help. We really do want our users to prosper, as evidence by the fact that we've actually stuck up to Google for you on this issue.
You know, Maddie, this is the first I've heard of anyone writing to Google. I appreciate that, and I hope that you wrote on EVERYONE'S behalf that is involved in this situation, not just mine. If it continues, Hubpages itself may get their adsense account disabled.
I didn't ever ask you to ban anyone! I and other just wanted higher standards on hubs, that's all. I simply provided you with information, and told you to do what you would with it. I'm a little tired of you making me sound like some whiney, ungrateful child, when that is not the case.
I would not even have posted to this thread again, except for your depiction of me as something I am not. I have high morals, and I don't like the sexy picture hubs. I never will. I would like to write for a site with higher standards, and I've found one. End of story.
Oh my. I'm sorry you feel like that. It was never my intention, and I don't think of you that way at all. I'm only trying to clarify why I couldn't take any action with the information you provided, since there wasn't any proof of wrongdoing on any other hubbers' part, because it sounds like you thought I was lying down on the job.
Again, I'm sorry you feel like I'm putting you down in any way. As far as the photo gallery hubs, I think that's an entirely different issue, but I understand your reasoning. You'll be missed.
Tend to agree that better communication would have helped to avoid some heated debates on disabled accounts issue.
Those uninitiated can see for themselves who is doing what http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/8487?page=2
I have low morals, in fact I don't have them at all, so I stay with this site. Good luck in your endeavors
Thank you Dalfa and Ananta for this link. Yes, the doub't is on Google too. I received an IP Address that displayed Google Ads with my ID. Later I discovered that the IP belongs to Google. Can we all trust Google??? It is almost impossible for a single individual from HP to work and get so many Adsense Accounts Disabled.
I’m not pointing fingers, Maddie, but it appears to me that I’m (at least) the third victim of others and I don’t think HubPages will gain from this development in the long run. So I hope you can find out what ‘s going on here and take appropriate action.
Thing is that I don’t know, Maddie. I am just a simple Hubber. I applied for an AdSense account and followed the instructions to activate it here on HubPages. I never had problems until a few weeks ago. I added HubPages and Blogger to mu whitelist and those sites are the only sites on that list. And all of the sudden my account was disabled. In a time where I didn’t publish any hubs. Google won’t co-operate, they refuse to tell me how my account poses a risk and what I can do about it. I can’t see who have visited my hubs and what they’ve done.
From our communication with Google on your behalf, they tell us they are currently looking into the problem.
Neither can we, really, where it counts in this case. Google is the only one who can tell who it is who clicked on your ads.
Please rest assured, we are doing all we can to press Google on the issue. We're all disturbed and upset for you, and we're absolutely pursuing this, but as we all know, Google can be slower to respond (and less clear in their responses) than we'd like.
I appreciate your cooperation, Maddie. Like I said, I’m not pointing fingers, although I agree that Google can do a lot more to resolve issues such as these.
I know of many people on many sites disabled in this way, they all said it was due to no fault on their part, and I believe you.
On one of the Social Site a Person, had written a whole series of articles,about Google which she sold I think on, one of those Sites like E Bay.
She made a packet, but was complaining that she had had a better offer after the Auction ended. So I guess many ways to make some money without Googleadsense.
I have found that any interaction with google is very much a one way street.
Well they did reply to my first appeal. Not a reply that helped me, but it was a reply…
Banning the accounts is not the only issue with google, in fact they have many other tricks in store to deprive a publisher from his income. I also faced some problems with google on payment issues and my issue is simply unresolved. They simply just don't reply!!!!
Its also intersting that google is accepting it in the adsense help that adsense code of several publishers is being stolen and pasted on objectionable sites but not trying to verifying the claims of hubbers getting victimized for it. These adult webpages are blogged at blogger (blogspot.com) and people pasting publisher code of other publishers are reporting themselves about abuse of publisher code. These webpages (adult) stay at blogger till the adsense account of publisher is disabled and removed after a day.
How do you know that the objectionable site owners are the ones reporting them? Google doesn't release that kind of information, in fact, they refuse to tell you who it is that is endangering your account, because if they did, and you did something bad to that person, they would be legally liable. And how do you know how long the blogger accounts stay up after they are reported?
And that's not even how it works. The adsense publisher is sent a warning, like I was, and asked to whitelist their account, which I did. Their account is not automatically disabled after a day. Google isn't stupid. It looks at past behavior on an Adsense account first before disabling it. The only way you can be disabled after you whitelist your account is by click-bots or click-slamming, because if your account number is put on porn sites, and it isn't on your whitelist, they know it isn't your site. However, if you are victimized time and time again, they will probably disable your site anyway.
That's how I knew that one of my competitors was lying about why she banned me from her forum, when she said Google told her I made 407 clicks in one day. Google assured me, when I wrote them (in an attempt not only to clear my own name, but to help her get her adsense account back), that they do not release such information to anyone.
My son has a friend who works at Google, and he says all they can do is trace the IP address. They have no way of knowing exactly who is using the IP address. The only way to find out is to get a warrant for their records from the IP, and have the local authorities check it out. If it gets to be a real problem, like the porn site thing has become, they will pursue that avenue, and probably are doing so as we speak. Once the person is found (and they will be found, because the FTC doesn't take kindly to things like this), they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Whoever is doing this is just arrogant and stupid. They'll get caught, just like the two guys who were doing all the spamming just got caught. It may take awhile, but they will get theirs in the end.
Dear dafla, I am reproducing below the conversation with adsense support team here that may provide answer to various questions you have raised about my post at this forum.

While reviewing your account, we noticed that you are currently displaying Google ads in a manner that is not compliant with our policies. For instance, we found violations of AdSense policies on pages such as prostittestruth.blogspot.com.
As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on pages with adult or mature content. Please visit our Help Center (https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … wer=105957) for more information.
As a result, we have disabled ad serving to the site.
Your AdSense account remains active. However, we strongly suggest that you take the time to review our program policies (https://www.google.com/adsense/policies ) to ensure that all of your remaining pages are in compliance.
Please note that we may disable your account if further violations are found in the future.

Thanks for the information. In fact I don't own that site and someone has done mischief by putting my publisher Id on the adult site listed in your mail. I just came to know that there is a provision in adsense setup A/C for the "allowed Sites".
Next day morning I opened my mail and found the following mail about account disabled:

We continually review all publishers according to our Terms and
Conditions and program policies, and we reserve the right to disable
publishers or sites that are not in compliance with our policies.
Our specialists have found that your account is not in compliance with
our adult content policies. As a result, we have disabled your account.
Thank you for your understanding.
The Google AdSense Team
In response to mail received from adsense I sent a mail to support team:
You have all the authority to disable the account but should have some criteria to do so. Yesterday I checked the mail and found a mail from google adsense informing that my adsense Id is being displayed on an adult site. I immediately informed that this site does not belong to me. Its not difficult to verify. You can easily verify that by IP address. Just to check that site I browsed that site yesterday after receiving your mail but could not browse as site was really dirty. I did not know that there is a provision in adsesnse setup for safe site list "Allowed Site". I included all my sites in the allowed site list yesterday only and today I received your mail for disabling the A/C.
Is it the prize for fighting with spammers and hubbers who have put lot of dirty pictures of girls on hubpages. You can find this conformation in the forums. They have threatened me to be ready for consequences. To take revenge, someone has pasted my code on that adult site. Please, Just visit the urls owned by me and judge whether I can do an act for which you have disabled my account.
I did not expect this type of behavior from such a reputed site. One more thing to mention: How difficult is it to know someone else's publisher's Id? Anyone can know it by right clicking on a page.
Just verify the facts and if I am guilty, I will not feel it bad. But don't do it for other's act.
After finding the adult site running on blogspot.com on October 9, 2008 I sent another mail to adsense support team:

subject Re: Google AdSense Account Disabled
Your action has hurt me to a great extent. How are your experts? If they can not detect the fraud and mischievous act, they can not be called experts if they are unable to find who is the owner of a site and what IP No. and mail adress and location has been used for managing that site. You people have disabled my A/C for no fault of mine. I have done so much labor to make my hubs. I am not a business site; I am an individual. Do you expect me to run a site on "Prostitutes"? You had my IP address with you and could easily detect if I have ever been to that adult site. Day before yesterday after receiving your mail about use of my publisher ID on adult site, I click on the link provided in your mail to that site out of curiosity to see which site is using my publisher ID . I could know by clicking the site that site was still there that must have been removed from the blogger. Surprise of surprises, You can disable my publisher A/C but can not delete that site that is feeding poisonous thoughts in the mind of young generation. I know you will ignore this mail but I'll just raise this issue in future on public platforms.
After sending the mail I rechecked the site and after few minutes the site (webpage) disappeared from blogger. Is there any answer for the question? Where from that site appeared and why it stayed for a day on blogger?
You know it's unfortunate that they do things like that, but there are alternatives. You might want to try Fair Ads Network. The guy that put that together is Kevin Lam and the system is just like Google. He specifically did the coding to counteract problems like the one you've come across.
I dont't know about others but 90% of my earnings come from hubpages and that also through adsense. I few months back hubpages started off Kontera as another option for hubbers but its results are not as good as contextual ads. Its not some 4-5 people out there but so many have become victim of this google banning thing. So I would ask hubpages to introduce another fair contextual ad network as an alternative. We know the team is experimenting many other networks but people who have been victimized should get something out of the traffic they receive from hubpages.
Hubpages may consider to place their own publisher ID for 100% impressions for hubbers who don't have a adsense account and share earnings in 40:60 ratio as being done with those who are having own publisher ID. HP may workout some formula for sharing sign up etc. In this way hubbers without adsense a/c may earn same amount of money. Even in existing arrangements HP shares a/c with individual hubbers. HP may pay hubbers thru paypal etc as being done by squidoo. In this way HP may avoid the loss it has to incur due to shift of top hubbers from hubpages because today or tomorrow these hubbers will shift their hubs to some other sites. Since most of the hubbers loosing adsense account has brought millions of traffic to hubpages, it won't be easy for HP to cope with such a great loss.
How does one benefit by using your adsense code?
I think that the guys and gals publishing pages with adult or mature content already knows that if they want their newly created WebPages to be indexed by Google within 24 hours, they just paste an adsense code on the pages. Then they open the pages so that the adsense code will open with an advert. After 24 hours or so the adult or mature content pages are already indexed by Google and viewable through out the world. If they do not have adsense accounts, or if their adsense accounts have been disabled by Google, they just pick adsense codes randomly anywhere from the entire World Wide Web.
I believe Google should address this issue sooner before it gets out of control.
I hope Google is already looking for some solution to these types of problems.
It's still happening here on hubpages - my account was disabled on Friday - no warning letter either - just a notice. I did email hubpages with the information that I had just to inform them of the problem.
Interestingly enough - it started just about the time I posted an article against spamming.
Don't really care- never made anything to speak of off of it anyway - but it does show the lengths that spammers are willing to go to to protect themselves.
That is awful. Contact Google too. GamerGirl had a similar problem and she did get her account reinstated.
Nanny, HubPages can't do anything about it - you need to check your Adsense account, try to work out what happened and then appeal to Google.
Read Gamergirl's post carefully on the actions she took, and do the same. You hadn't been a member of Adsense long enough to see the earnings start coming in - trust me, it's worth trying to get reinstated.
And yes, you do have to be careful - spammers can be vindictive.
Edit: I was a bit gobsmacked to discover this site:
where you can enter a publisher ID and find out which sites it's on. Not sure I'm happy about that!
Sorry it took so long to respond - been dealing with kid issues for few days...
I did inform hubpages - only to let them know that if for some reason out of the blue they were contacted by google - I know they can't help.
I too have found that Adspy site and was shocked at the amount of info on it - although they say it is obltained legally with with public info - WHY??? in all that's holy would adsense make what should be private info dealing with earnings and actual money - that easily accessible?
I recieved a reply from Google that denied my appeal - I have all my analytics info now and will be appealing the appeal
UW's right. My Adsense ID was ripped from one of my Hubpages and was used on a few different sites. I didn't catch it until I got the hammer from Google because my account received something in the range of several thousand clicks over a couple days no thanks to some Indian blogs (written in Hindi) and I can't tell you how frustrating it was.
I googled my Adsense account ID (the code you put in on Hubpages to link your Hubpages and Adsense accounts) and was able to find a short list of sites that had messy messy code and were using my ID without my permission, and provided Google with all the information I had collected. I explained to them that the ONLY site I actively use my Adsense ID on is Hubpages, which was true at that point, and faxed them a written declaration of my use of their program.
It took a LONG time to get my account back, and I did - but it's not something that is guaranteed for everyone. Google can, at any time, disable your account and from there you're boned.
If someones account is disabled maybe they can still keep writing but they can address there account to somebody else. SO all the hubs will still be receiving revenues.
