It’s good to have AdSense ads working in your blog. However google have the right to ban any account that doesn’t follow their policies. This is why you should read carefully the publisher agreement before applying for approval.
Even top publishers are not safe from AdSense banning, The program is very strict and publishers must be aware of any malicious activity.
In today’s blog post, I’ve tried to gather the 5 most common reasons why people get banned from AdSense. Make sure to avoid these mistakes to keep your account safe and prevent Google from banning your account.
1/Modifying Ads code
Altering the AdSense code is extremely prohibited. Make sure to add the code as it is.Otherwise, Google will be noticed about the modification and they will immediately close your account.
Never click on your ads. When you click on your ads, you'll get paid for every click. But, do you think that this is helpful for Google and its advertisers? Absolutely no ! If you continue clicking your ads, Google will surely ban your account and you'll lose all of your earnings.
3/Ask visitors to click on the ad
Google want to make sure that all clicks are natural. It doesn't make sense to ask your visitors to click on your ads. Any activity like this will end up with a banned account.
4/Using unsupported language
Not all languages are supported by AdSense and using an unsupported language violates the program's policies. Unfortunately, some bloggers use a supported language when applying and once they got approved, they start to publish in a different language. This is not permitted and you should be aware of this as Google could ban your account at any time.
Here is all AdSense's supported languages.
5/ Sharing copyrighted content
Actually, sharing copyrighted content or copying other's content without their permission is a problem that not only will affect your Adsense account but also your blog's SEO as well as the search engine ranking.
Additionally, linking to websites that share copyrighted materials is also not permitted.
