Repercussions of Google AdSense Banning

It’s absolutely unbelievable how many people today make a living solely online either through affiliate marketing, eBay, lead generation or any of the other thousands of ways money can be made on the internet. And it’s even more unbelievable how many people make their money solely from Google AdSense or other ad serving programs.

For somebody who makes their living from AdSense being served on their websites, a banning by Google can hurt, especially when it happens on a Friday evening after business hours.

When Google decides that you have done something against their terms and conditions when you are a publisher, you get no warning, the unsuspecting publisher tries to log into their account and this is what they see:

It’s pretty ironic that when you are a publisher and making money from Google you get no warning or notice, your account is just disabled. But when you’re an advertiser and Google is making money off you, your ads may be disabled because they don’t follow AdWords guidelines, but your account is not totally shut down and you are able to correct the mistake.

FatManUnleashed.com a blog I read regularly that discusses weight loss topics had this happen to them today. Who knows how long it will take for this issue to be resolved, but I would guess it’s not going to be until after the weekend.

I guess the moral of this post is it’s a good idea to diversifying your advertising, especially if you are making a living off publishing ads.

  1. not cool at all.

  2. I’m pretty sure it would suck to do it this way, but maybe you could create an adsense account for each site you manage, that way if one is flagged they won’t all be shut down??

  3. to Karacoatta:

    They ban your name, and all your sites usually.

    Also, it is semi impossible to get resolved. They are kind of harsh that way.

  4. Nice Post

  5. Again, they reserve the right to police their system as they wish. You don’t have to use AdWords, but if you do, then you have to follow their rules.
