What Google Doesn't Tell You About Adsense


I have been studying new techniques about adsense. Adsense is a great way to make an extra income off of your websites. With the extra income you can then plow it back into your online businesses.

One of the masters of Adsense is Joel Comm and here is a reprint of an article that he wrote. Find out what to do if this happens to you.


What Do I Do If My AdSense Account Gets Closed?
by Joel Comm

A week does not go by that I don't get an email from someone telling me that their AdSense account was closed.

Most often, the email from the AdSense team starts with...

"It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on the Google ads on your site(s). 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."

The notice goes on to state that an account can be closed for a variety of reason, including violations of terms of service. Frequently, the reason cited is "invalid clicks"

An email to Google usually solicits this response...

"As you know, Google treats instances of invalid clicks very seriously. By disabling your account, we feel that we have taken the necessary measures to ensure that invalid clicks will not continue to occur on your site. Due to the proprietary nature of our monitoring system, we're not able to disclose any specific details of these clicks."

So what is an AdSense publisher to do when their account is closed?

First of all, realize that very few succeed in getting their accounts reopened. But that doesn't mean it is impossible!

Start by evaluating your server logs. Is there an unusual amount of traffic coming from one IP? Could it be that you are a victim of a vigilante click attack?

If this is the case, be sure to save a copy of this data as you will need it to show to Google.
Next, write to Google and ask them to clarify their reason.

BE POLITE! Realize that there is another human being reading your email and they are simply doing their job.

If you run up against a roadblock, write them again and plead your case. If you are certain that you did not violate TOS and that you are not responsible for any fraudulent clicks, you can say so with a clear conscience.

Note: If you share your computer with another person, make sure that person or persons is not responsible for clicking on your ads. They might have thought they were doing you a a favor!

Google is pretty good about responding, so wait and see what they say. BE POLITE! Don't demand that your account be reopened. Don't get all flustered or vent anger through your email.
This won't serve any purpose.

Explain everything that you have done in regards to AdSense. If you don't hear from Google, don't give up! If you know you are innocent, simply continue politely writing their team. Be sure to keep track of all correspondence and leave it attached to each email you send.

Occasionally... and I do mean ocassionally, Google will review the suspected fraudulent clicks and find that you have not done anything wrong. I know for a fact that accounts HAVE been reinstated.

There are no guarantees. But it never hurts to ask.

And did I mention...
When writing Google... BE POLITE!

If all else fails, perhaps it is time to try another contextual ad service for your site(s). Some to experiment with are:
Yahoo Publisher Network

Kontera AdLinks

Chitika eMiniMalls

I hope this article helps you understand some of googles policies.

With gas prices ever increasing higher and higher, the 4-E Corp Environment, Ethics, Energy, Economy comes to the rescue!

Ethos Environmental is a manufacturer and distributor of a unique line of fuel reformulating products under the name Ethos Fuel Reformulators, or Ethos FR. "With the Olympics coming to Beijing, we want to show the world we are doing something to help the environment," says Yi Li Wang, who, as chairman of human resources, is the highest-ranking woman in the Chinese government.

She is also executive chairman of Globalization Economic Cooperation & Promotion Network Ltd., a company half-owned by the Chinese government. "We are spending a lot of money on the Olympics," says Wang, who was in San Diego in February to meet with Ethos executives. "We are confident that EthosFR will improve air quality for the event."

But before they tackle Beijing's infamous air pollution, the highly polluted Yangtze River region will benefit first. Emission standards have been adopted for the small container ships that ply the Yangtze and other rivers in China.

Previously, the ships were unregulated and belched plumes of hydrocarbon-laden smoke, polluting the surrounding air. Although the use of EthosFR has not been mandated, so far it's the only additive the government has approved for use, and a production facility in China is in the works.

About a dozen products were tested, but only Ethos passed muster. "Ethos is a natural, nontoxic product," Wang says, "and has no after burn" —meaning it does not create any additional emissions, as do petrochemical-based additives and ethanol. What's more, it's been found to reduce fuel consumption enough to pay for itself.

"The air-quality regulations in China were comparable to the 1950s in the United States, so we are a solution for them," says Ethos president Enrique De Vilmorin. "If you take 15 percent off the emission rolls in any city, you're going to make a difference." He expects to reduce emissions by much more, however.

The product is formulated to reduce exhaust emissions 30 to 40 percent, and at least one company in San Diego has achieved emission reductions of nearly 80 percent in some of its equipment. The ester-based EthosFR cleans and lubricates an engine's internal parts without using petroleum-derived solvents.

It acts like soap, removing carbon deposits and reducing friction. This improves engine performance, reducing fuel consumption as well as harmful emissions. One ounce treats 10 gallons of fuel. "It's ash less," De Vilmorin says, explaining that 99.99 percent of the patented product is consumed during engine combustion. In fact, emission tests show a significant increase in oxygen levels from engines with EthosFR in the fuel, further improving air quality.

Of the company's name, De Vilmorin explains, "We're an ethical company that has ethical customers, and we sell ethical products. In addition to China, EthosFR is used in Thailand. In South America, Ecuador will begin adding it to fuel supplies in June to reduce air pollution in Quito. Peru and Chile are expected to follow suit later in the year, and a pilot program is under way in Mexico City.

ETHOS ENVIRONMENTAL is not only cleaning the air, it's cleaning up. The company, which was slated to go public in March, reported $9 million in sales in 2004. This year, the company expects revenue of $100 million from China and Ecuador alone. Sales in the company's home country will only be a fraction of total revenue, however.

A number of commercial truck fleet operators use the fuel additive, the U.S. Marine Corps adds the product to the fuel burned in its hovercraft, and the U.S. State Department ordered EthosFR for its Humvees in Iraq earlier this year. . Right now you can align yourself with a real success story in the making.

Enjoy huge rewards by simply helping the environment and consumers. Save huge at the pump and on automobile maintenance. Together we will do it the right way, the 4-E Ethos FR way! Lanching: April 2006 Lock-in and reserve your no obligation FREE position HERE!

Get in on this today and join the revolution helping the environment, lowering fuel consumption and maybe prices and putting money back into your pockets. That's something we all can live with.
