Take precautions in protecting your AdSense account.

Protect your AdSense Account

Adsense – Protect It

You put hours of effort into your website or blog and much of the work is upfront investment, so it is important to protect that investment.  For many webmasters and bloggers, Google AdSense contributes a major part of their online income, so it is worth taking a few steps in making sure the account does not get banned.  If your site is focused only on MFA (made for AdSense) ready sites then you should have posted The Google Adsense Privacy Policy. 

Privacy Policy Posting Rule – March

Google AdSense implemented a new policy in their Terms of Service this March; stating that all websites with Google AdSense must now post a privacy policy on your website. This policy requires that “publishers must notify their users of the use of cookies and/or web beacons to collect data in the ad serving process”.

How to set up the privacy policy

Here is a privacy policy generator to help you get one within minutes.  You will have a solid and professional privacy policy that you can instantly add to your website.  It gives you peace of mind knowing you are not at risk of being banned.

Some Important Considerations with Google AdSense

Never try programming tricks to fool Google like joining link farms or link directories as they generate fake traffic.  You will spend more time trying to cheat than you could have made doing it right, and you will get caught. Google has powerful analysis tools at their disposal. For this reason, it may be a good idea not to outsource any link building work to other marketers.

Check on your AdSense statistics daily for number of impressions and CTR, make sure there isn’t any abnormal activity such as hundreds of clicks if your usual daily CTR is say less. If this happens contact Google.

Google AdSense does not allow advertisements to be placed with any content related to adult, racism or depicting violence.

Avoid Traffic Exchange – Google AdSense has said it does not recommend using traffic exchange services. They bring in fake traffic to your site and this leads to invalid clicks or impressions that result in your account being disabled.

What to do if you got the Google Adsense Ban?

If your Google AdSense account gets banned due to invalid activity you can send an appeal to Google using this form.


Anything to Add?

Do you have any real-world experiences with AdSense and account banning?  Or do you have any other suggestions?  Please leave a comment or suggestion, registration is not necessary to leave a comment.  I allow one link per comment if it is done in good taste.

  4. After years of blogging, I made chump change with Adsense and affiliate sales. Why? Hardly any traffic. If you want to bank, you need lots of traffic. Getting cheap, quality traffic by the thousands per day is almost impossible with Adwords or SEO. But I found a site that showed me how to get tons of visitors for pennies. I went from well under $100 a day to $300 on a bad day using it. If you are looking for more traffic (more $$), check it out —> Cheap Blog Traffic Secret.

  5. Getting traffic to a blog isn’t easy huh? I remember when I first started. lol I was really BAD! I spent hundreds buying fake traffic from scammers at DP.

So can you share any secrets on how you increaded your readership? I just posted something about rapid mass traffic (cheap, targeted traffic) that you may want to check out when you can here.
