Some of the Reasons for getting banned
If you have not understood their rules properly you are likely to make some of the following mistakes –

- Displaying Google ads in a misleading way to the visitors of your site. They may think those are a parts of your site and click unknowingly. Google doesn’t like this type of unethical practice.

- Displaying adsense code on the page with unaccepted contents such as Hacker, Warez, Porn, Drug and Gambling sites.
- Driving your visitors to sites like autosurf, pay per view etc. to get more page views. That is also against Google policy.
- Displaying Google ads next to images on the content.
- You should not dare to make changes in the code you get from Google, according to your convenience. You have to use the code as it is, without any modifications.
Why are they so strict about the rules?
You may wonder why Google dislikes such activities by the publishers. The ads provided by Google are paid ads (paid for each click) by different advertisers to sell their products, and Google is committed to provide real value to them. A good portion of the money received for each ad is given to the publishers who provide the relevant content. Thus, all the three parties are getting benefited. – The advertiser who spent on ads get his items sold, Google get their percentage for displaying on the relevant pages when people look for that and we, the publisher get paid for writing appropriate content where the relevant ads are displayed. So don’t you think it is our duty to follow their rules correctly, and protect our adsense account?
