Adsense Banned me -- What should i do?
Webmaster forums across the Net are littered with people saying "I got banned from adsense - What should i do?", This is usually followed by assurance that they didn't do anything..
Google will ban people from adsense for various reason, The most common being click fraud. Click fraud doesn't mean that they think you are clicking you own adverts necessarily, It may be that they think you are getting others to click them. Think about it,, If the same person is going to your site once a day and clicking an advert, that would look suspicious, wouldn't it?
It could also be that google believe you are trying to deceive visitors or suggesting they "support" the site by clicking adverts. Remember, At the end of every advert is a webmaster paying for it, It's not google adsense paying you, It's other webmasters.
To not get banned from adsense is simple. Follow the terms and do not click your own adverts, Don't even encourage others to click them. Just put the adverts up, and leave them.
If you do find yourself banned from adsense, Don't start pulling your hair out straight away (though you may have to later). Sometimes when people get banned google will reinstate their account on appeal. If you feel you were wrongly banned, I emphasize WRONGLY, If you were banned and you know what you done wrong, Don't try to get back in, You deserved to be banned, So take your medicine like a man and learn from your mistakes..
If however you feel certain that you had done nothing wrong, You should Contact Google and explain why you feel your account should be reinstated..
Keep your appeal short and simple. Do not threaten google with a boycott, they couldn't care less if you use them and do not tell them how long you have been using adsense, This makes no difference. It may take some time to get a reply, Google have to find your email and then investigate your claim, just be patient
If after that you find you are unable to get back into adsense, It's time to consider some of the Adsense Alternatives.
