Google Adsense, one of the dream account, specially to all the blogger around the world. The reason behind it is that adsence is the only programmer through which the blog owners can actually earn some money and fulfill the website expenses. But no matter how easy it looks in the dream, it is actually much harder to perform it in the real life scenario. One of the few reasons behind it is, getting an approved Google Adsense account is not so easy, specially if you are from a third world country. Google personally doesn’t have any sorts of diversity towards third world countries, but statistically the major amount of web spam, adsence scam, money tree scam and many other sorts of scams originates from these third world countries, specially counties like Pakistan, India, Nigeria etc. That is why at the time of accepting Adsence requests, Google Adesense personals look deep into the third world countries submission requests rather than first world and second world countries.
How Adsense Work
If you are thinking why I’m telling you all this stuffs, that is because if you wanna save your adsense account from getting disabled or cancelled or rejected, first you have to understand the adsense ecosystem properly. Account approval on Google Adsense is not an automated process done by some computer programs, beside every request is manually accepted and rejected by Adsense personal working at Google. So, if you are thinking that you can actually fool the Google’s request acceptation algorithm by doing some black hat stuff then you are very wrong. Another thing you really need to keep in mind while using adsense program is that Google is very strict withe the rules and policies of adsense. If you break any rule or policy, which you have accepted while requesting for adsence approval, they will immediately disable your account and all of your earnings will be lost. There is actually very important reason why they do that.
Does Google pays my earning on Adsense
HAHAHA! This is a very common wrong idea people hand regarding Adsense program. People think that whatever meny they earn on adsense, it is actually coming from Google’s pocket. No my friends, it is not. Adsense earnings actually comes from the ad publishers pocket. When organizations post ad through Google Adwords, the amount they mention for CPC, it is actually get divided into Google’s profit and as well as adsense users earnings. Now it has been calculated by using many complex mathematical formulas which included many key factors of your site like number of your daily visitors, your page rank, your website average pageviews etc. So, in short if you are a very reputable site which higher page rank and more visitors, you will earn more in adfsense than others. Even the higher CPC ads are shown most often in reputable sites. So, now as you have an overall idea about how adsense works, lets share top 5 tips to prevent your account getting banned or disabled on adsense.
Here are the important tips
Tip 1 – Use unique name & address
This is very important and I do know that many people does not know this. If you had created an account on adsence previously and the account gets disabled or banned or cancelled, don’t try to open up a new account just with a new email id but the same name and address. Adsense will reject your submission. The only way to fix this is either you check the Google Adsense disabled account FAQ or post your issue to the dedicated Google Adsense account disabled support forum. If your submission get rejected, just check the points highlighted by Google on the rejection email and resubmit your request after fixing them. It might take months to actually update the change on Google’s server, so re-apply after few months.
Tip 2 – Always follow the Google’s rules
As I said earlier, Google is very strict on their Adsense rules, because Adsense is not just a way for you to earning money, beside Adwords is Google’s most primary way to collect revenue. Adsense and Adwords are interconnected to each other. Maximum users uses Google adwords just because they knew that their ads gonna appear on millions of websites who uses Adsense and they can reach to more audience. So, if the adsence users is not following the rules, it will break the trust of the ad publishers and eventually Google will lose its revenue which they never gonna tolerate. Here are some important things you need to keep in your mind while using adsense on your site to prevent your adsense account get disabled.
- Don’t post or host contents related to hacking, cracking software, piracy etc.
- Always use your 100% original content.
- Never use pictures copyrighted by others. Only use royalty free images or create your own image.
- Never ever click into your own ads or even provoke anyone or anybody to click on your ads. – Google uses very sophisticated Artificial Intelligence program to track user mouse pointer location on the page and using the mouse pointer behavior it decides whether it’s a legit or fake click.
- Never tell your friends to click on your ads.
- Don’t use pornographic materials on your site.
- Don’t use any other ad service on your website while using adsence
- Don’t put more than 3 ads on any page.

But take my advise never do that, because as per Google’s policy manipulating adsense code is actually an offence and if you do that Google will disable your account forever, so never try this.
