Google AdSense Account Disabled

This morning I checked my mail to find this:

Hello Lee Wye Jon,

It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on the ads on your web pages. We have therefore disabled your Google AdSense account. Please understand that this step was taken in an effort to protect the interest of the AdWords advertisers.

A publisher's site may not have invalid clicks on any ad(s), including but not limited to clicks generated by a publisher on his own web pages, clicks generated through the use of robots, automated clicking tools, or any other deceptive software.

Practices such as these are in violation of the Google AdSense Terms and Conditions and program polices, which can be viewed at:


Publishers disabled for invalid click activity are not allowed further participation in AdSense and do not receive any further payment. The earnings on your account will be properly returned to the affected advertisers.


The Google AdSense Team

Sigh... I've put up my AdSense since February this year and I've only earned a measly amount... not even near to getting my first AdSense cheque. Can someone please tell me where the hell the invalid clicks come from? The Great Lord Google does not wish to tell me. A peasant like me will never find out. But I still tried anyways.


If there's a real person reading this please reply. May I know in what way were the terms violated? I have not made any attempts to fraudelently click on the ads.


Lee Wye Jon

Now let's wait for the Google Gods to reply. Otherwise I'm going to start worshipping Yahoo again.

BTW... I'm not as bitter as I make it sound. Was never expecting much from Google but I certainly don't expect them to just cancel an account without reason. Google = Malaysian government?

They said it's due to invalid clicks. Did you receive lots of clicks recently? I've heard of such cases happened a lot of times. Try asking google to track the invalid clicks perhaps? I'm not sure how to deal with this though, this is the nightmare for web publishers.

Wow, I'm feeling sad for you. I REALLY think Google need to work on their monitoring technology.

10:36 PM  

a golden opinion from Blogger wyejon

ahmad zaki, thanks... they do need to work on their monitoring technology. Not only that they actually need to perform some checks by hand before actually disabling AdSense accounts. I think everything was done using computers without any human input.

pandaboy, I don't check my AdSense account often enough to know if there was a sudden surge of clicks. I think Google should at least send out warning letters so that I may have had the chance to act on the matter first. Now as it stands I have no idea why I was banned.

Dear jon,
Are you setup the "channel" for each of your ad? this can be track (not much) with the webstat in your page. At least you know where the user from and your channel click rate. they never warn anybody, its on our own to fight the fraud. There still a lot of ads alternative.

My Adsense was also disabled a couple of days ago with the same cruddy explanation. Google treats all webmasters as criminals instead of attempting to work with them to prevent the "invalid clicks" in the first place.

Me too - I got the same email. Yahoo "adsense" will be out in a couple of months so I will try that.

a golden opinion from Anonymous Anonymous

Same thing happened to me on Friday. Shame was I was earning some money of the ads. My site earned that money legitimally and Google wont even pay out. Given that Google takes a whole month to pay, I lost about 2 months revenue. I am moving to Yahoo as soon as they are ready.

I am pretty sure I get some robots traversing my site since I get blank emails from some of my forms on my site. Usually 5 a day. My guess is that is what caused the so-called "invalid clicks". But if I dont let robots traverse the site, how will google index them? I'm sure I could come up with a filter, but that will take time I would rather spend on content. Google could learn to work with people versus rip them off.

a golden opinion from Anonymous Paul Wells

I've just had the same message - I knew my 'income' was increasing, but I put it down to recent layout changes I'd made.

The problem is that Google doesn't give you enough detail about the 'invalid clicks' - it'd be useful to know if there was a pattern to them, or if they were all coming from one location.

a golden opinion from Anonymous Aleph

Google's done the same thing to us, and we bent over BACKWARDS to comply with everything they wanted from us. We went so far as to filter all the site staff on a page-level so they wouldn't even SEE the ads, so that nobody on staff could even click them by accident. We even immediately yanked a post in our fan forum where Syl asked people not to get enthusiastic and over-click-- and I'm talking, within SECONDS-- because we were not allowed to say anything to DISCOURAGE ad clicks. So we couldn't even do anything to protect ourselves from misguided fans.

When I began running the ads my comic was on hiatus, and when I got over the illness and traffic started coming in again, my earnings started to pick up-- hardly any money at all, to be honest, but, that didn't stop them from taking it all.

We've been waiting this entire week for a response and they don't seem to feel they need to explain why they did it. I don't appreciate being accused of wrongdoing this way without so much as an attempt to substantiate it, either.

I won't even use their search engine anymore. Altavista is doing just fine for me.

I just set up an Adsense account and its been disabled within a matter of days. Last I checked I only generated $3. I clicked on each of the 4 AdSense account exactly twice each. The first time to see what they were and the second, the next day to see if they were the same as the day before. I guess my $3 goes to Google. If they do this to millions of people each year, no wonder their profits are so high.

Does anyone know if google does cancel your account (happened to me this morning) and I know how it happened. I clicked on my links about 15 times in the past month to see if clicks and stuff work corrently from all my sites. Guess I coudlnt do that. Not like i was trying cheat them out of a cool $10 bucks.

But does anyone know if you can reapply for adsense or is it a permament ban. Also can someone else make an account and put it on the same page or is that person going to get blacklisted (if the site it was on originally is blacklisted?)

Google burned me good with AdSense. I had been running their contextual text links on a half dozen of my sites.. after I had earned about $400, they sent me the same "invalid clicks" email which looked like it wasn't even written by a human. I had no idea what they were talking about, and offered to fix the problem.. they ignored my responses and I never did see the money.

I would suggest that folks avoid AdSense like the plague. I googled around about this issue, and it seems to happen to a lot of people, and always when it's getting close to payout time.

I’ve since swapped out all my CPC adsense ads with CPA ads from AzoogleAds. I'm making WAY more money with them, and the checks show up on time every month when they're supposed to. No lame excuses or reps hiding under their desks.

I have earned over $200,000 USD lifetime with them, and I've been paid on time every time. I would strongly suggest that folks check them out, and quit running adsense ads on your sites before you get burned too. It's quite unpleasant to drive in thousands of legitimate clicks over the course of a few months, and then get screwed by Google when it comes time for them to square up.

I'd also like to mention that I'm NOT an employee of AzoogleAds, nor am I trying to just spam their name out.. I think they're a rock solid Internet marketing agency, and they've never burned me like google did.. even on 5 figure checks.

Google is a big rip off anyway. They are screwing the publishers and what's so funny is that they make believe that they share 50% of their revenue with publishers.

Yesterday (9/13/2006) my Adsense account was disabled due to invalid clicks. In reality it was due to the $100 in earnings accumulated since April of 2006.
Big companies do not get rich by writing checks! Just as well. Google Adsense was sending ads that degraded the content of my website and its subsequent pages anyway. Google just gave me the motivation to delete its code altogether.

I got the email from Google yesterday saying my account was disabled. They were putting up ads for diet pills and Canadian prescription drugs, and I post art on my site. I fail to see how those ads were relevant. So, I clicked on a few to see if somehow their content matched mine. I even tried changing my site, and the same ads came up. I was thinking of dumping them anyway due to the irrelevant content - who's wants to have cheesy, and probably fraudelent, ads for diet pills when they're viewing pencil drawings? And I thought sites that sold prescription drugs could not participate in the AdSense program. I guess that only counts if you are a publisher. If you are an advertiser, you can sell what you want, as long as Google gets a cut. After all, Sergi needs a new Boeing.

I say the American way is a class action lawsuit and I'd be willing to take the stand because i want my $200 from Google. We are all small publishers it sounds trying to follow the "rules". I've never clicked on any of my own ads but there are several characteristics that are the same in this blog and it realyl should be taken on and fought. Please if anybody knows anything, let me know. Google needs to be put down on this case and I say a multi-million dollar lawsuit might get them to put up a little more human intervention in dealing with the peoples lives like they are.

I just got the letter today too, I appealled their swift axe but still amazed that there was no warning. I didn't get a warning and I don't think the friggin thing had even made $30. What a joke, what were the invalid clicks? If they were invalid are they giving those advertisers back their money? Or are they charging them anyway? I'm a google advertiser and I want to know that too. If there are so many invalid clicks and people getting banned why are they not refunding money to the advertisers if they are withholding funds from websites posting those ads?

My AdSense was disabled as well.

I have requested to be reinstated, so hopefully I will be. However, I am immediately going to be searching for an alternative to Google. Someone mentioned Yahoo, but I will not do business with them either -- not after they outed the identity of those Chinese dissidents to protect their revenue from Chinese ad sales.

Banned AdSense Publisher Gets His Money Back from Google

It’s not uncommon to hear stories of disgruntled AdSense publishers whose accounts have been permanently banned by Google either due to "non-compliance with AdSense policies" or for "posing a significant risk to AdWords advertisers."

The compliance issue is almost always related to content. For instance, if any particular website is centered around banned topics (like gambling or pornography), Google can disable AdSense serving for that website.

The next issue is more serious as it relates to "click fraud". No one obviously has a clear understanding of how Google determines "invalid clicks" but such an activity can invite an AdSense ban for life. There’s an appeal process at Google but again it doesn’t guarantee that your AdSense account will be reinstated even if you provide all the required details (like web server logs).

Aaron Greenspan was another happy AdSense user until he received an email from Google saying that his account has been cancelled.

While going through our records recently, we found that your AdSense account has posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers. Since keeping your account in our publisher network may financially damage our advertisers in the future, we’ve decided to disable your AdSense account.

Aaron writes in Huffington Post that his AdSense account was disabled without warning and he literally ran from pillar to post at Google trying to reach everyone from the AdSense Customer Service to the Legal Team to Google forums but with no success.

If an AdSense publisher’s account is disabled for invalid clicks, he is not entitled to any further payment from Google and all the current earnings are returned to the corresponding AdWords advertisers. The same happened to Aaron as he had made around $721 from AdSense but the payment was stopped after the account was disabled.

With literally no options left, Aaron made a final attempt and filed a civil lawsuit for $721.00 (the amount Google owed to him) saying that Google could not prove any wrongdoing and that Google’s fraud detection algorithm was imperfect. All he had to pay was $40 as the court fees for this lawsuit.

The AdSense account was disabled on December 9, 2008, he filed the lawsuit against Google on January 15, 2009 and on March 2, 2009, the judge delivered the following verdict:

I don’t think I have the power here in Palo Alto small claims court to make you reinstate his account, but I think you owe this young man $721. I think there might be money in Google’s treasury for that.

Google paid him all the "due" AdSense earnings along with the court fees though his account still stands cancelled.

I think a big reason why Google lost this case is because their lawyer couldn’t convince the judge about how "click fraud" was detected in first place. Google has good reasons to not disclose their fraud detection algorithms in public court cases but the fact that this decision went against Google could probably convince many more ex-AdSense users to follow the footsteps of Aaron

Does Google also blacklist the websites if an account is disabled for AdSense?

What if we use other google account on same website?

hey my name is alishah.
your account has been disabled because you was clicking on your own ads. hwoever if you were not clicking on your own ads, make sure your ip address is not used by another person. Never open your website in net cafe. members of your relatives also try to increase your income by clicking on ads make sure that no one is opening your web site.

They disabled my account today with no explanation except that it's because of the invalid clicking. It's really not fair, especially because I didn't click or asked anybody to do that!

Hi All,

Got the above message from Google Adsense Team next morning with my Adsense Account DISABLED !.

Out of sudden and without any mercy, I lost my adsense earning at USD30.00 with my past 6 month hardwork struggling.

Can never trust Google anymore as they may at any time kill your account.Now I switch to Adbrite.
