Invalid activity is one of the most common thing which affright every new AdSense publisher. As per a recent published adsense statistics repost, almost 72% adsense account got disabled and banned due to invalid click activity reason. A group of students also done a research about the webmaster’s view and thought about their adsense account getting disabled due to invalid click activity. Most of the webmaster said that they neither clicked on their own ads nor provoked anyone to do so. They feel that Google disabled their account so that they won’t have to pay him anymore. Also some said “it’s a Google scandal to fool webmasters”. If you are one of the victims of the invalid click activity, trust me there is nothing to do with google, it’s all your you and your site.

Today in this article I’m gonna explain to you what Invalid Click is in Google AdSense and most importantly how you can prevent your AdSense account getting blocked due to invalid click activity. If this feels interesting to you, then keep reading.

Update! I’ve released a free WordPress plugin to help you fight this invalid click & click bombing war effectively. To know more about that, please check the updated section of this article. 

What is invalid click activity in Adsense?

As per definition if a click is generated as an outcome of keen interest on the ad or product showing in the screen and if the user clicked on the ad, it will counted as a legit click. Now if the user just clicks on the ad without even having any interest on whatever is showing in the screen, it will definitely be counted as invalid click. Also if a user just keep clicking every single ads showed in his screen, then also it can be taken as invalid click activity. Because logically there is no one in this internet who could be interested with every single ads shows up on his / her screen. Take a look at the video below to know more about invalid click activity.

How Google does know all this?

As I said on many previous posts of mine, that google uses very sophisticated human alike bots which crawl pages just the way we see them on screen. Beside that google has few more advanced bots and algorithm especially for Adsense program as this is their major source of revenue and they do not want to compromise their quality in this competitive market. Google also uses mouse tracking algorithm which actually every single user’s mouse pattern on the sites using adsense and depending upon their mouse pattern google checks their psychology behind clicking on those ads. It’s a very complex process with many complex algorithms.

How invalid clicks happens on our site?

As I’ve already described what invalid click is still many webmaster claims that they neither did it nor provoked anyone to click on their ads. From a judging perspective its almost sounds like a thief claiming that he didn’t steal anything. Funny right? Though I’m not saying that every webmaster is lying about the invalid click activity on their site.

This is how it happens, some webmasters don’t even know the Google Adsense Policies and hence make mistakes which google doesn’t forgive and in the end they blame Google for their own mistake.  But there are many webmasters who are telling the truth. They follow every Google policy but still get disabled due to invalid click activity. How does it happen, right?

Well, technically it is called “Adsense Cyber Fraud Attack” – a specific attack towards adsense users to generate fraud click and as a result to block your adsense account. There is no specific reasons behind all this attacks and no specific motives also. The only common motive they have is they have Google and its product, mainly Adsense and hate adsense account holders. As a statistical result of a research paper it has been shown that major invalid click activities are triggered in the home country of the author or webmasters. These are specially done by webmaster’s close people and friends who are not happy with his / her web success. So, they does invalid click on your site to stop the major source of income you have in your site. Beside this there are few countries from which these major attacks comes are mainly China, Russia, Pakistan, Ukraine and Belgium etc. Some hackers from this countries does this thing so that your adsense account get disabled and you lose your major income source. Here is a list of countries which are considered as the High Risk Online Fraud Countries which you might want to avoid showing your adsense ads.

Why Cyber Fraud Attackers do all this?

Well, human psychology is one of the most complicated thing on the earth. So understanding human emotion and reflexes is as hard as living on Mars. Nobody actually knows why these people want to harm adsense users and why did they get in return. Maybe they do this because they love to see other people suffer or maybe they take revenge of his/her own adsense disabled account on other adsense publishers. Nobody actually knows, because adsense cyber fraud attacks can be done by your dearest friend or neighbor or even someone far from your country.

How to get rid of Adsense Cyber Fraud Attack?

When you paste your adsense code in your website it is by default set to show in everywhere in the earth. You can’t change that. The way to save yourself from these adsense attacks is firstly not sharing your adsense approval or success stories with anyone who envy you and secondly block showing ads for all the mentioned countries above. So that any user from this countries never see adsense ad content on your site and if they can’t see the ad, they can’t initiate invalid activity on it.

Blocking ads for specific countries is not as easy as it sound like, basically for a non techie user who have no experience of development & coding. Though there are few tools available like Google Ad Manager (dfp) or other ad management tool which does support filtering country and show ads. If you are a coder or you want more customization capability towards this matter, you can develop your own plugin or write your own code to archive the outcome you want. As there is no popular and trusted WordPress plugin to do this work that I’m aware of, I cannot mention any plugin name here.

Just one thing make sure when you develop your own plugin or write your own code, do not try to hide ad in your site by using CSS or jQury or any front end language. As I said googlebot crawl your site like the way other user does along with that googlebot also crawls the page source code, css and js file. As you cannot change the raw page source code by using any front end language, google will find that and DISABLE your adsense account. Hiding adsense ad having the ad code in the page is also against Adsense policy. So I’ll suggest you to do this using server side language like PHP. So that the ad code only shows up in the source code when the page is visited from any whitelisted country.

How to fight these AdSense invalid clicks & click bombing activity effectively? (Updated)

In the last couple of months the AdSense account banning due to the invalid click activity has been incresed exponancially. Sometimes the rivals click on their compitetor’s website ads to ban their adsense account and sometime people user bots to click on your ads so that your AdSense account gets blocked for inactivity reason. Many people has personally contacted me several times asking for a solution to help them. But as AdSense is a very complicated system with many complicated algorithms, it’s not that easy to design an algorithm or write codes to fight this off. But now there is a way to fight these.

For the last 2 months or so, I’ve been working on a plugin to help all AdSense webmaters to make sure their AdSense account doesn’t get banned due to invalid click activity. After months of hard work and hours of coding, bugfix and debugging, I’ve finally published a free WordPress plugin named AdSense Invalid Click Protector (AICP) so that you guys don’t have to fight this nasty war alone.

With the help of this pluginyou can block user who clicked on your ads more than certain number of times (specified by you) and you can also decide for how long do you want to keep them blocked from seeing your ads on your website. It is a very cool plugin which will help you to make sure invalid click activity will never happen on your website ever again. Moreover if you want, you can also block certain countries from seeing your ads at all. I will highly recommend you to try it out and if you like it, don’t forget to share a review about your experience and if possible, please consider donating some amount so that I can keep the development of this plugin active.

My Adsense account is already disabled due to invalid activity

Well if your adsense account is already been disabled by google due to invalid activity reason, I will first suggest you to read my another article about 5 Tips to stop getting your Adsense account Disabled then you make sure your site follows every single Google Adsense Policy. After doing all this, try to find the core source behind the invalid activity on your site. If you are 200% sure that it didn’t happen due to your fault, feel free to submit an Invalid Activity Appeal at google. But make sure every adsense account has only one appeal chance. So, if your appeal get rejected, your account is permanently banned from adsense.

Conclusion

The term “Invalid Activity” may sounds very light but it has a lot of things going behind the scene. Make sure your adsense account is safe and also people from fraudulent country does not see your ads. Besides blocking ads on cyber fraud countries will also increase your CPC value on adsense, as you are delivering ad content to the proper audience.

        • Hi, This is a really common thing with many publisher. I hope Google will not disable your account for 1 miss click. But make sure this wont happen again. Also after this Google will put your account in the high risk account zone. So any more mistake can disable your permanently.

    Reply
    • Google clearly mention the reason of blocking adsense account in the notification email they sent to the user when they block your account. So, it is better to create a new adsense account and start a fresh but make sure to open the account of someone else name. As google does not allow duplicate account. I was actually thinking about writing a post about adsense alternative but as most of the alternative ad companies shows very poor quality ad which reduce site authority and create bad user experience. Adsense is the best ad company for publisher that why everyone fight for it. I’m doing a research on this and will write a post as soon as I find few good ad sites for publisher which does not degrade user experience.

    Reply
    • Well google adwords is a very sophisticated service which does not charge you for fake clicks. I think you should talk with figure adwords customer representative and explain them the issue you are facing. Then ask them to give you ask the ip address details of the people who click on your ads.

But if you don’t they will disable your account no matter what trick you follow. Also this blog is not about providing black hat techniques to trick google, it is about knowing Google policies properly so that you can follow then on your site.

If i see that the money that i earn last days are the same now, that means that i don’t had invalid clicks? Thank u !

    • These are internal parameters and maintained by Google, there is no way to tell that how many invalid clicks are allowed in an account.

      • hy, i just receive my first payment on my adsense page, i selected a payment method, now i must receive my PIN by mail. If the money appeared on my page in my transactions, that means that i will sure receive the money , or is still the risk they to disable my adsense account (from any reason) and lose all my earnings ?

        • Google can disable your account any time (even the day before sending the payment to you) if you do not follow every single Adsense policy enacted by Google.

        • Hy my friend , i’m back with a new question : I saw yesterday on my adsense account that i have at a “flash” add 1 click with CPC 3,18 € which is very huge for me , others CPC i had in past was between 0,02 – 0,20 €. U think is something wrong and i must worry about? Should i report this to Adsense team, and fill that “Invalid Clicks Contact Form”?

          Reply
          • No you should not feel up the appeal form unless they block you. I hope its not something to think about, but if something spooky is happening then you have no other way to contact Google Adsense unless they disable your account.

  12. I live in Israel and have six months adsense account got disabled and not necessarily the amount of click fraud is very low and that happened to me only once that I have to report their support for click fraud was

    Reply
    • I can assure you that Google doesn’t block a single adsense account without proper reason. Generally accounts get disabled site to invalid click activity or if the webmaster is not following Google policies. But if you are confident that you didn’t do anything wrong, why don’t you appeal for reactivating your account explaining them the situation and prove them that you didn’t broke any policy.

  14. Hi, i’m glad you did everything to protect your Adsense. You said you blocked ads from displaying on several countries but why does it appear when i visited your website? I’m actually from one of those country but i don’t have bad intentions here. Just saying if your plugin really works so that you can check it. Anyhow, do you think Google will accept an appeal if it’s because we violate their terms by asking someone to click on our ads? Thanks.

    Reply
    • Hi, can you confirm your country please? As per your IP address it is Malaysia which is not blocked in my plugin configuration. Beside my plugin works fine, as Malaysia is not in my blocking list, it is showing ads to you.
      Beside I don’t know which country you are from, I know that you do not have any bad intention mate, if you had you wouldn’t post this comment. But it’s not about you, it’s about the majority of adsense cyber threat. I never said that all person from those country are completely devoted to destroying others adsense account, but this is a number game, and tbe above countries posses high risk. Beside it’s completely up to you for which countries you wanna block the ads, even even wanna block them for anyone 🙂

As blogger is a Google hosted platform, there is almost no way to gain customizability and to do stuffs the way you want. But you can try using DFS for blocking adsense ad on certain countries. In blogger, you have no other option.

I’ve properly named the source site name below the table mentioning the source of the data. It is written in green bold color. I guess you have missed that.Beside I just gave a rough explanation about what can be done. I never said that don’t block India. If you feel that India is a real threat to your site, by all means go block it now. This post is just to educate people but not about any political vendetta.

        so if you have high CTR you May Should should Track which Ad unit Receives More Clicks then others So you May Change the Place of That Ad to Another Place or Remove it Properly..

        I recommend to Those Guy who Receives High CTR , they Should Only Use 2 Ad units #1 Link ad Unit in the post if it Get high CTR their is Low Risk To Get Disabled Account Because Link ads are From Google Double Click

        and other display Ad unit at safe Place where CTR will Normal

As i said Place Link ads Instead that Ad Unit Which is Receives Enough Clicks or Clicks of Ad unit Considered Invalid Many Times When Ever a Visitor Lands on Your Page Example a user land on Your Page For Finding Cheap Prices of Iphones after Landing if User Find Ad unit First Before Reading your Content he/She may Quickly View ad because of Similar ad when he Lands on Advertisers Site and After Checking Price of Iphone that Seems not Cheap as users Thinking user immediately leave Advertisers Site with in Few Sec.

          These kind Of users Generates Invalid Clicks For you i know its Difficult To Detect or Control users Behavior on Your Site / Blog.

          Simple Solution is Placing Link ad unit At most Attractive place on your Blog When a user Click on Link ad he Redirect to Google Double Click site and Find many of List Ads if he Click on List Ads you will Get paid and never Consider as Invalid Click

          Also You can Generate Much CPC then Display Ads
          my Blog have different Niches and Link ads Some times Touches 2 $ CPC

          i am Safe after Placing Link ads on Blog also Use Display Ads But not At attractive Place’s

    • I’m saying for the last time, what you are saying is simply not possible, unless you broke any rules of Google Adsense. It might be a bad quality of site, bad design, copied content, un-engaged users clicking ads (maybe randomly), bad kind of user engagement, major traffic from bad countries with long history of cyber criminalism and many other thing.

  40. Hi, Recently my adsense account is disabled, but i have checked that my website is not banned from adsense advertisement. I have appealed, but it got rejected. Can you suggest me what to do next?

    Should i create new adsense account as business page, or should i go for other ads?

    Reply
    • You better figure out which terms of Google Adsense is your site not following properly. And then try to fix that loophole and then re apply for adsense with a new name/address combination. I will not suggest to use any other ad publisher besides Adsense because they all are crap and makes websites loads slower + destroys the overall user experience on your site in a great manner.

      • They specified that my account was disabled due to “Invalid Click Activity” although i have informed them that while designing or previewing posts,some clicks may be clicked by me,but they rejected my appeal. Later i had found that some user from Germany clicked 6/7 ads at same time which might be main cause. So Soumya can you help me how to hide Google ads for specific country or users?

        Thanks and Cheers 🙂

        • Google don’t allow publisher’s own click at any way, not even by mistake. As I said above, you can write a plugin to check the visiting user’s country and then take appropriate action against it.

    Hello,

    With our advertising programs we strive to create an online ecosystem that benefits publishers, advertisers, and users. For this reason we sometimes have to take action against accounts that show behavior towards users or advertisers that may negatively impact how the ecosystem is perceived. In your case, we have detected invalid activity on your AdSense account and as a result it has been disabled.

    We are limited in the amount of information we can provide about your specific violation. We understand that you may want more information about your account activity. However, in order to protect our proprietary detection systems, we are unable to provide further details.

    In some cases publishers can make significant changes to correct the violation and are willing to comply with the AdSense program policies. For this reason, we offer an appeal process as an opportunity to work with you to resolve the issue. Please be sure to provide a complete analysis of your traffic or other reasons that may have generated invalid activity in your appeal. Submit your appeal using this form and we will follow up accordingly. Before submission, please review the list of the top reasons for account closure.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Sincerely,

    The Google AdSense Team

      • Hi Saumya Majumder,

        My account could run Google Ads only 2 days, now I gotten disabled account, I tried with appeal form, but many people said it’s hopeless to get account back. my URL is [LINK REMOVED]

        Is possible to register new Google adsense account with new name but the same URL?

        Reply
        • You can always open a new adsense account with new name + address combination. But again if you get a new adsense account it’s still gonna be deactivated unless you follow adsense policy. Your website is a complete violation of adsense policy as you are letting people do piracy and frankly there is no unique content in your site for adsense to post their ads. So, read the above article carefully, watch the videos I’ve embedded and understand it. Then create a site that will make some sense for google to put ads on. Otherwise no matter how many times you apply for new account, it’s gonna be disabled anyway.

  45. They have suspended mine for a month and i’m thinking of going to the ombudsman here in Australia. I got a message at 1 am local time then i got a email at 4 am the same morning and i found out by 6 pm that night it was suspended because someone told me about it. I do have quite a few views between 142 videos from over a year but i’ll turn off the ads from coming up when my videos starts playing. I’ll be telling all my friends not to get adsense acounts. I’m thinking of checking out some other acounts like Adsence. I wouldn’t go back to adsense. Most of the views of my videos are watched during the early hours of the morning here in Australia from Europe and America when i’m not even awake during that time of the night.

  46. hello i ge this email from adsense , are you think will re-enable it ?
    We’d like you to know that we recently detected invalid activity on the AdSense ads hosted on your website. We’ve temporarily suspended your account and will re-enable it in 30 days. While your account is suspended, you’ll still be able to log in to your AdSense account; however, no ads will be served during this period. We hope this gives you time to identify the source of the invalid activity and to take appropriate action.

    You may see a deduction in your next payment. We’ll refund any revenue from invalid activity, including Google’s share, back to affected advertisers. Your payments may also be put on hold until we re-review your account.

    After 30 days, we’ll re-enable your account. If you need more time to identify and stop the invalid activity, please remove your AdSense ad code from your site to prevent ads from being displayed. We’ll review your account again 30 days after it starts receiving traffic in order to verify the invalid activity has ceased. Please know that if the invalid activity persists, we may need to take further action, such as permanently disabling your account, in order to protect our advertising ecosystem.

    We understand that you may want to know more about the invalid activity we’ve detected. Because this information could be used to circumvent our proprietary detection system, we’re unable to provide our publishers with information about specific account activity, including any web pages, users, or third-party services that may have been involved. To help you identify the potential source of the problem, please read our list of top reasons for account closure: http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=2660562.

    Please know that this is not an exhaustive list. However, many publishers have been able to identify the core issue using this list, so please read through it carefully.

    Lastly, we recommend learning how to segment your traffic to help you best understand, monitor, and evaluate the traffic to your site. This may also help you identify sources of invalid activity. For more information, please visit http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=2583698.

    We encourage you to be proactive in ensuring that your site and ad traffic comply with our Terms and Conditions and policies. If you have any questions, please feel free to respond to this email. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

  47. Hello Can any one suggest me If someone clicked my adsense ads again again what happen google treate this.

    Reply
    • It’s a very hard question to answer as like all other complex Google algorithm, the outcome depends upon many variables, like

      if this is a new adsense account
      the age of the adsense account
      the total amount of money that you have received from google in all these time
      the popularity of you website and it’s image
      the no of visit your site gets every day
      Quality of your site & it’s contents…. etc…

      If your website follows those above things then chances are that you already have a pretty popular website and you gave already received money from google more than one time. This denotes that you are an authority person and has a good website that profits Google. So, google might just deduct those amount as invalid clicks from your monthly earnings but keep your accounts open and healthy.

      Otherwise if it’s a new account, doesn’t receive money from google ever and not so popular/authority website, they will not hesitate for once to close your account. As their bot will think you as a scammy publisher looking for earning money in the shortcut way and google hats it.

      If you know any kind of visitor like this in your website, block their access to your website by blocking their IP.

    • As I said above, one should read the Adsense terms and Conditions instead of blindly accepting it. The thing you are saying about asking people to click ads in anyways (both directly and indirectly) is completely against adsense policy and your account will be closed immediately for good. Check the “Encouraging clicks” section from: https://j.mp/1kYxmhU

    • Hi I do not think Google will ban your account on such small ground. But you should always use non-copyrighted materials on your video. Also about shortening your name, that is not an issue to Google. Right now you can appeal to google to enable your account. But keep in mind that you can appeal once for an adsense account.

  52. Thanks Saumya, while I was checking my video and content. All of the sudden my attention reached to my video editing.

    I am using video pad software. But that is free for home use not for commercial usage. I have uploaded 9 videos with that but the thing is in the property of the video it shows that it is copyrighted so as I told that it is not for commercial purpose so shall I remove all my videos? And start from beginning? If yes then pls suggest a free video editing software.

    It will be very disappointing if I have to start everything from scratch.

      • Okay I will see what can be done in that regard but are you really sure that I should not delete all my videos and start over as I have used video pad the home version which is free for home not for commercial usage.

  53. Hi Saumya,
    Very Good afternoon to you.
    My name is Vaishak and I am the owner of the website [LINK REMOVED].

    I read your article related to this topic and had a few doubts that came to my mind. Hence, this mail which I ensure you will be to the point.

    I have just started using adsense for my site, since Jan 18th 2016. Just like what you had mentioned in the article, a few people who know me and my site, may click on the ads.

    So, whenever I get clicks, it gives me a fear of being banned.

    In such a scenario, is there anything I should do to stay safe. Because, I cannot control clicks. Say, if someone wants to get me banned they can simply keep clicking.

    So, my concern is to know what I should do in this sort of situation. If there is some tip you could tell me from your experience it would be great.

    Thanks for the write up and all the best to you.

    With warm regards
    Vaishak S

    • Hi, I do understand your fear and it is quite common to have at first. The main thing everyone should do is never tell your friends or enemies that you have a website unless you are using adsense on your site for 4-5 years. Because after using it for that long time, Google generally don’t ban the account and try to understand that the publisher is not a bad person instead someone else is poking with the site. But initially don’t expect that kind of treatment from Google. Anther thing that you can do is block certain countries to show ads – but again as your target country is India, if you block India you will loss revenue.

  55. Dear Saumya Majumder ! As i read Above that you are saying that adsense Clicks Bombing And Invalid Clicks are usually doing from China, Pakistan, Russia, Ukraine and Belgium. How can you say that. Give us Prove. In fact in Pakistan, Only 20 % People are using on line jobs with adsense etc. Please STOP this writing, if you can’t prove to Statement. Thanks ! and One thing, Indians may hate Pakistani People, But we always respect and Love you and others Indians.

    Reply
    • Hi, I’m truly sorry if this article hurt you in any way. Also about the proof, I’vent added the country list from out of the blue. I’ve actually provided the links below the table where you can see the list of countries bares highest online threat. Also most click firm companies are located in Pakistan, Bangladesh & India. The best thing I will suggest you is to block as many third world countries as possible at the beginning of your Adsense account. After you get payout from Google (at least 5 times) them start disabling certain countries one by one basis. Because in the beginning, even if Google approve adsense request, they put all adesense account created from third world countries under high risk segment. So, even a minor mistake can block your account permanently.
      After you get certain payouts, Google starts moving up accounts from high risk to mid risk and low risk segment. This is the time you can worry less about getting your account banned. Hope this helps.

  57. Hi Saumya Majumder,
    Very nice article thanks for sharing with us, you mentioned above that you dont have experience with some free plugins that can help us from preventing invalid clicks. I want to ask how we can track invalid clicks and the country that the invalid click came from, is that possible with Google Analytics or Google Adsense Statistic. Also what to do if we blocked all countries that make invalid clicks and we still have high amount of invalid clicks we cant block every country right? Can you share your opinion about this wordpress plugin for protection from invalid clicks is this ok to install on our wordpress site, we want to hear your code perspective.
    Thanks for sharing this article and FYI this post earn you subscribe from me. Keep up with the good work.

    Reply
    • Hi,
      I just checked the plugin link you have provided. Though I’vent tested it personally but still after looking at the description of the plugin I saw that it doesn’t provide country level blocking. Also please note even if you block certain countries from seeing your ads – it doesn’t necessarily mention that your account will not get banned. It just reduces the chance greatly. If any of your friend or enemy still wanna ruin your account they can still do click fraud to block your account. That is why I will suggest you not to tell anyone about your adsense account getting approved. The lesser people (friend, family & enemy) knows about this, the chances of loosing your account for invalid click gets lower too.
      Thanks for subscribing. Hope my upcoming articles will also entertain you. 🙂

      • Thanks for the answer,
        So what you think the plugin can help us or not and you didnt answer my question about how we can track invalid clicks.

        Thanks

        Reply
        • I don’t think the plugin will be of much help as it doesn’t support blocking ads on basis of country. Also unfortunately there is no way to keep track of invalid clicks. Google’s algorithm is very complex. It takes into account many things before calling a click as invalid. You see if someone clicked on the same ad twice, it is not necessarily be called as invalid click. If the user who clicked on the as is seriously interested about that ad and that’s why they clicked it twice, then Google will pay you for both of those clicks. But if someone is clicking the ad just to earn money but has no interest in whatever ad it is showing, then Google will call it a invalid click.

  59. Hello Saumya,
    I have recently created a Youtube channel, uploaded 2 videos and after about 10 days i have received and email from Ad-Sense telling me that they have banned my account for invalid click activity. I Have NEVER CLICKED ANY ADS ! Neither do i have a penny in my revenue. So is Youtube gone Completely bats*t crazy ?
    I am Very angry right now. I have sent a form to Ad-Sense telling my points.
    Now i know i am done if they don’t accept my form but if they do can this happen again ? Then what should i do ?

    Reply
    • The first mistake you have made is applying for YouTube partnership before having a strong channel. First make a popular channel with lots of subscriber then go for it. Google generally takes these small channels as scams so a minor mistake could load to account cancellation. Also you don’t always have to earn any money to get cancelled. Google has full rights to cancel any account if they feel that account has some suspicious activity. So, first create a good channel before applying for an account. Also next time while opening a new account, use an unique email, name and address combination.
      Hope this helps 🙂

  60. Hi Saumya

    I have been suffering from this the most and getting frustrated too, I had created 3 accounts consecutively but all of them were disabled one after another. First account worked for almost 3 months but rest two were disabled within a week after creation. While second account was disabled, I just put the adsense code in sidebar of my website and blog so can that cause to disable my adsense account ?
    Also I am not clicking on my ads nor asking anyone to do so. While I got my 3rd account activated, The only thing I have done is that shared my own post on my linkedin account. Can such action lead to disable my adsense account ?
    P.S : I owned one account at a time

  61. I think its too late for me. My videos were being repeatedly posted on other websites which I had no control over. In tern, these videos would get random view spikes. There is no easy way to display this to them. My account was disabled permanently prior to the 30 temp ban which you get these days. And because i’m only a small content creator with no network support, its impossible for me to get help or be reinstated. But its good help and advice you are offering so pay attention people!

  67. Google adsense is doing totally blame to Indians. Google is earning crores of money by adds without paying any tax and conditions from india. They simply send message invalid clicks before paying amount to blogger. This is only favourable to americans only. Generally adds are Indians, earnings is americans what is this?. What is use to see the indian adds by americans. This is a big fraud.

    Reply
    • Hey man, don’t post crappy comments on the web blaming others for your fault. Internet is full of these. Being an Indian I cannot agree to whatever you are saying above. In my early days my AdSense accounts also got banned because I didn’t follow Google’s rule exactly as they mentioned. But my current Adsense account, I’ve been using it for 4 – 5 years now and received payment from Google many times. If you use Adsense to become rich in a short cut way your acc will definatly get banned. If you earn money (be it $0.10 or $100) Google will be more than happy to pay you.
      Google uses extraordinary machine learning and AI to determine these things and only flag an account if it is not actually following any Google’s policy. Anyways furthermore, Google just don’t pay Americans via Adsense. I’ve seen plenty Americal Accounts getting banned too, because they didn’t follow the rule and thought, Google will never find out.

    • No brother I’m not a saint. My account also gets banned several times. I’ve also moved from one email to the other creating new accounts each time it gets banned until I learned the lesson that why my accounts are getting banned. I read Adsense terms several terms and then realized that my account are getting banned because of very minor things which most people won’t even think about. But Google does. So, I learned my lesson and from that point of time the account I created I treated it like a newborn baby until my account gets more than 1 year old and I receive more than 5 payouts because after this point, generally accounts gets banned anymore unless you violated some major terms of adsense.

  72. Hi,

    Well they banned my account stating invalid click activity. My website had no traffic as it was under development. I even had enabled a feature that blocked VPN/proxy users from accessing the page where adsense ads were placed. Even after that they wrongly closed my account. Website not launched – no traffic – no fake traffic – so no clicks.
    Clearly google banned my account for nothing.

    Reply
    • They banned your account because it was not getting any views. For new adsense account it is very important that your account get enough quality views. As your site is not getting any views so your adsense account is also not getting any views. Hence they blocked it. You should have applied for the adsense account after your site is ready. Though you can still appeal for your account, may be they will accept your appeal and give your account back to you.

  77. Hi,

    I watched your video and it is really a good video. Also I’ve seen that your channel has good subscribers in it. Thus this is really wired to me why your account has been closed.

    I know it feels extremely bad for account closing as this happen to me personally more than two times. The worst part is they don’t tell users what their mistake is mainly because first most of these flags are raised by bots bated on complex math calculations and intense machine learning. So,there was never a definitive answer on the first place.

    Also this is what Google says on their defence, the reason they don’t share the actual reason is because people can misuse it to understand the activity of Adsense bots and try to find new ways of doing invalid stuffs which the bot can’t detect.

    As ads are the main revenue sources of Google till now they take it super seriously by providing vague answer to the rejected applicants thinking all of them are fraud and trying to rob Google, so if they tell them the actual reason they may try to manipulate Adsense bot.

    I know it sounds disgusting, but it’s true. I really feel sorry for you. But a few things I don’t understand. You channel has 38K+ subscribers. So have you created this Adsense account recently? As you said it’s your first payment. From which country most of your viewership holds? Have you received any previous payment from your Adsense acc?

  79. If the Adsense account is disabled to create another one it’s necessary to have new name, new email, new address, new IP but payee name and website could be the same as the closed account? Could Google close the new account if same computer and same payee/website are used for the new account? I’m afraid that I need to open a new website if I have a new account (don’t want to lose the site already created if possible).

    • Initially I will suggest you to apply with a new website address and it it gets approved, wait for to receive 1/2 payments from Google. Then you add your current site within adsense. If you have an active adsense account, you can add as many sites you want, no need to contact Google every time. But first let’s get an account with good standing.

      • Thanks for the information! Can I use another name (es. parents or siblings name) for the new account registration but use my same payee name as the old account and same computer or there is a problem to use the old payee name and IP address (must be different)?

    • Nope..u can use same name but in address just change some things if First was near Bank than change it to Bank ke Saamne ” bcoz they just need it to verify PIN

  80. My adsense account was just disabled due to invalid activity just before I was going to be paid my first $100 after about a year of it building up. I was able to see a spike in traffic between 1-2am which I guessed caused the inactivity. I eventually found the IPs the traffic was coming from, around 200 visits in a few minutes. The strange thing is the IPs I found I did a search on and they were classified as Google IPs. It all seems a little suspicious that Google disabled my Adsense based on invalid activity from Google bots and now Google keeps the money I would have been paid out. I submitted an appeal and they quickly responded with a generic email saying my account cannot be reinstated.

    • Damn man! I really feel sorry for you. Believe it or not a few days back I found a YouTube video explaining these unexplained phenomenon. I’ve also tweeted this to Google and asked about it’s authenticity in the official Adsense forum and everybody said there was no base behind it. But personally I felt it was possible. Looking at Google’s current behavior it is very clear that the “Don’t be evil” motto may not stand anymore inside google.

      Anyways if you wanna see this video, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sAiFMv62gc

      But as a solution of this problem, I will suggest you apply for a new adsense account with a new name, address combination. Also at the time of applying, read the entire adsense terms so that you don’t miss any loophole on their terms. That’s the only way now.

      Once I talked with a Googler and even he admitted that 99.999% of appeals for adsense gets rejected. But personally the adsense account I’m currently using, I have allowed almost every single one of their rules and haven’t faced any issues yet.

  81. hey bro google recently disable my adsense account for invalid click activity.. though i think its not my fault.. i have already appealed to google through the link i received in email and provided them with proof of invalid third party activity because i can see traffic from unknown region in my youtube traffic log… now i want to ask you one think.. if google has disable my adsense account then why my youtube account is still associated with my adsense account and monetization is still on.. and i can see the green dollar sign with my videos.. also the ads are still being shown.. will google enable my account again? and will i receive my payment..
    and one thing more i only received email from google adsense but not from youtube stating that my “youtube partnership has been disabled”

    kindly reply ASAP.. thanks. . .

    • I completely understand your problem, but trust me it’s not just you. As per the text shown at the top of the invalid click notify form, protecting your account from invalid click is your responsibility and not Google’s.

      Please keep in mind that it’s your responsibility to prevent invalid activity from occurring in your account, and this form does not absolve you of that responsibility.

      So, in short, when you detect invalid click activity on your adsense account (like huge increase in daily earnings or CTR), the first thing you need to do is to disable monetization on your YouTube channel or remove ads from your website. Then contact google about it. By doing this, chances of your account getting disabled reduced by 99.99%.

      After all this things are done and Google give you green signal to enable ads again, you can do so.

      Anyways, I’m not sure for how much time Google has banned your adsense account. If you are a authoritative person with a authoritative account, Google generally does this ban for 30 days after which your account will get auto activated.

      But in the email, if Google doesn’t mention anything like that, then your account is disabled for lifetime. Honestly, no one generally looks into these adsense appeals form inside Google unless you have a authoritative account.

      The reason YouTube is still showing monetization is because maybe it’s hasn’t updated your adsense status yet. After which it will stop showing your ads. The best thing you can do is try to login to your adsense account. If you account got banned for 30 days then it will show it to you.

      Hope this helps 🙂

      • But bhai google didn’t mentioned anything about the ban time. So I guess it’s life time. Haina, what do you mean authoritative account

        Reply
        • By authoritative account I meant Adsense account which has received payment from Google many times before. Also it is either associated with a popular/high quality/authoritative website or a big youtube channel.

  83. Hi, Saumya. I had my Adsense account disabled from same old suspicious reasons (Invalid activity… etc). I still don’t know why, but… whatever. So, I had this site and this Adsense account suspended about more than a year ago. The account was disabled almost from the beginning, just a few days before I received their PIN by mail. So I didn’t entered any PIN, only name and address (I don’t remember if phone number was required).
    Now my problem: I have a new website (new domain). What do you think? With new email, new website, same name, different address, would it work to apply for a new account?
    Thank you very much. An answer would be highly appreciated. Have a nice day!

  85. Imprtant Update to All
    Hello everyone, recently a lot of people has reported that their AdSense account is getting disabled due to invalid click activity even if they haven’t done anything wrong. In most cases this happens due to the Click Bombing by the compitators.

    It happened in the past too but recently it has taken a whole new level and Google do not take any responsibility of the click bombings and points to finger to the publishers. That is why I’ve been developing a WordPress plugin to fight with these invalid clicks once and for all.

    The plugin will get published in the WordPress repo as soon as the development and testing is complete. As you can understand this is a very complicated plugin with so many complicated logic and algorithm, I’ve devoted hours and hours to make this plugin a reality. So, I will really appriciate if you guys can make some small donations for the development and maintanance of this plugin.

    I’ll update this article with the plugin’s link as soon as it has been published.

    Reply
    • Hi, for the plugin support I will recommend you to post the issues in the Support Forum of the plugin. Also when your server is throwing a 500 error, please check your server error log, there must be some FATAL error that is causing the issue. Without looking into the log message it is really hard to say what’s causing this.

    Reply
    • Technically the only thing you can do is go against Google in a proper legal way or agree with whatever they are saying. I know it’s bad but that’s how AdSense works. If Google say you did something wrong or violated their terms, then generally they have proof for it which they might show to the court if you take proper legal action against them, otherwise they won’t show it to anyone.

    • If you have more advanced skills you can incorporate the login inside your PHP template. The shortcode is the most simpler approach. Also you can use the system with combination with adsense if they use iframe based ads too.

  104. Hi Saumya Majumder
    1. My adsense account was disabled more than a year.
    2. Your AICP plugin works on wordpress scripts. But how to protect classifieds websites (osclass.org), other websites and youtube channel from High Risk Online Fraud Countries ?
    3. And google have any responsiblity about such type of issues ? because so many webmasters don’t have knowledge about such type of issues like Invalid Activities on Adsense Activated websites without knowing to webmaster. Also i don’t have any knowledge about how to protect from such type of attackers.
    4. And i have 1 question i am using shared internet connection, already you know 100 to 1000 computers are working on same internet connection or I.P address. In my area minimum 500 computers are working on same I.P address. If someone click on google ads in my website (adsense acivated website) thats not me, I am already installed google publisher toolbar, how google judge me.

    Your website(wordpress website) theme is very good, i want this theme how to get ?

    Reply
    • Hi, it is impossible to apply the protection algorithm for systems like YouTube, blogger etc. as in youtube the ads gets inserted by Google and you can’t do anything about that. Regarding blogger, you cannot execute the php codes directly in blogger so nothing can be done in that case as well. But if you are running any PHP based system or CMS, you can technically implement it, but right now as a plugin it is just available in WordPress but for other system,, you have to code it yourself.
      Also Google doesn’t have any responsibility to protect you against these attacks it’s your responsibility, they just show the ads.
      Regarding the IP, it is quite common, as not everyone uses static IP, that is why Google takes into account a lot more data besides just the public IP.
      In the end most of my site is fully custom coded and custom made.

      • Hi, I agree with you,

        If i signup new adsense account for my classifieds site, google adsense accept my new account or not ?
        Google does not accept my new account because, I saw google policies about new adsense account whose account Invalid Click Activity.
        what is your opinion about my issue? Can i open new adsense account?
        Please make a plugin to osclasss.org classifieds script. You can sell your plugin on osclass.org.
        I am not owner of osclass.org. Just i am using this classifieds script.

    Reply
    • Hi,
      there is no paid version it is a completely free plugin. But the plugin uses API calls from IP-API.com if you are using country blocking feature. So, if you have a high traffic site, you may need to buy the pro version of the API key from them. This is not something in my hand as it is a 3rd party API.

    • If you do so, there is a high chance that Google will see it and will not approve your application or can deactivate your account again. I’ll recommend you to apply for Adsense with a quality content site. Just make sure you have good visitors and all contents are written by you instead of copying from other places.
