I have done contemplating, analyzing, even grumbling about my Adsense account being disabled all of a sudden. I tell you, it isn’t a welcome sight when you visit your site with some elements totally blank one morning. The worst is when you check your email and find out from a reliable sender the cause of the empty spaces in your site. Yes, you heard me right – my Adsense account has been disabled since 22nd December, just so you know why my Google ads spaces went blank.
I had no idea how this small site could pose a risk to advertisers and other publishers when I haven’t even got a single cent after running Adsense for four years. I even seldom check my account and as far as I can remember, my earnings have only reached $42 the last time I peeked on it which was about two months ago. I don’t know how much it was when the account was disabled. I have done all the readings about this situation and I’m not hoping anymore for a reinstatement.
When I clicked the link to submit an appeal it led me to a page where it explains why the account was disabled. It’s about invalid clicks, redirecting, requesting someone to click your ads, blah, blah. And did I perform invalid clicks on my own ads? Request someone to click my ads? Not that I remember. I admit I was tempted to click an ad but that was a long time ago and I didn’t do it again because I was completely aware of this “clicking” policy. I visited the forums site to get a clear view of the matter and somehow, my sadness had alleviated when I found out that I was not alone in the clamour against this act.
Well, what can I do more? Blogging must go on. If I am a victim of click bombing, I don’t know yet. And if there’s somebody doing this to my sites must be a glad nitwit by now. I won’t be lurking or sobbing because of this. Well, not forever, just a couple of days more. Adsense makes my heart grow fonder? Hardly. I better finish reading “The Lost Symbol” (by Dan Brown) than pondering over my lost Adsense.
