Hi Guys! Nice new name! Good luck and all the best!!!

Now, i have problem here! My adsense account has been suspended because of invalid clicks! I didn't realize tha my friends who accessed my website will click on these ads! I haven't created this website to make a dollar a day or maybe less! I've got a job very well paid, this was for fun only, to keep me busy in the afternoon! The ads look great on the website ,i'm not interested in making money from ads! I have requested google to revise my account! Do you think they will re activate my account! Has anybody had the same problem before?

Thanks Yola!

They keep IP logs... If they match your MAC than they will not re do the account

I had very similar recently. Turned out a relative had been clicking "to help me". I emailed Google to explain, but no response yet (about three weeks). You get one chance to appeal, then you're out. Google never give a reason.

You mean my IP? I've never clicked on my ads! Not even by mistake! Could be my family abroad! They've told me they clcked few times but not for money, just because the ad was interesting!

Thanks for your reply!

all i mean is $1 a day in ad revenue is good for a free yola site.
You can also not give anyone an insentive to click on them (i.e tell your mates to) - everyone would do it if that was the case.
I would recommned finding similar sites to yours and swap adverts with them, releveant visits and adverts are what you want.
Good luck andy

PS there is always adbrite - check them out http://adbrite.com

I know i'm not supposed to ask my mates to do that but if they did that's out of my control! I'm sure that's what's happened! Never mind! There is always an option in my case to delete the whole site!

I will start soon designing a new pc game! That will keep me busy for a while!

Thanks Lee!

I guy's
Damm was I stupid - I just got the hang of making a website, the problem was - "I never read the terms and conditions" ....I know, I know....so here was I clicking myself in to next week trying my hyperlinks out left to right and cross refrensing them all 14 pages - then I went a step or 2 further - I redesigned it 4 times the last 2 months....4 times - and I just clicked on all the buttons and Links going from 1 page to another and checking to see if the Google links are working.

I just thought that Google being a big company woudl have software that would discard the register user who is working the google account - somehow linking your IP and just not crediting the client for that click...

I'm so disapointed for not reading the terms and conditions. I've been disabled and reading the infomation above...I don't think they will ever reactivate it ever in my hole live....

Last reply was five months ago. But anyways... I once clicked on one of my ads and my AdSense was cancelled for invalid clicks and they REFUSED to give it back to me, I had to create adsense with another username AND another mailing address just to get ads. Now I'm more careful not to click on the ads. Right after it was suspended... I tried to create a new account and they matched my name and mailing address with a suspended account so I actually had to use my mother's address so the cross reference was matched. But now, I'm careful about invalid clicks. By the way... I wish I made $1 a day! LOL! I've made $23.41 since MARCH - NEARLY 7 MONTHS. That's average 11 cents per day! I made $0.07 in September!

They won't reactivate it. You'll have to create a new adsense account with a DIFFERENT mailing address and wait for approval.

Clicking your own ads only once will not get your adsense account suspended; however if you are clicking or the set of IP addresses is clicking ads on a regular basis then your account could be suspended for violation of terms. Some people set up autorepsonders or bots to continually click ads to try to cheat more revenue out of their adsense accounts. In short, Google tracks the clicks, including IP addresses and watches for emerging patterns, any flagged accounts get reviewed by human employees and suspension could result; if after suspension, patterns continue (Big company or not, they don't give money away) they will Deny your account and could even block your IP address if chronic violator under many email addresses. It is rare to make $1 a day, everyday or more with Google adsense; not that it is not possible, but it is rare.

There are many more affiliate choices out there, www.cj.com, www.linkshare.com,
and several other advertisers with affiliate programs. If you prefer feed links, then get affiliate accounts with LinkShare or CommissionJunction then get a GoldenCan account and with the advertisers you already have @ your affiliate accounts, you can create feed links to post on your websites. Hope you have a successful affiliate experience.

How very nice of you to assist me so kindly. Your a true gentleman, thanks for South Africa. I understand a few thing much better now. I'm still sorry about my Adsense accounts as it made my web page look more profesional and I could give my clients a better service, yet with the mentioned companies you've added - I'll defenetly investigate these companies and if they can give my clients a service - I'll make use of them.

Thanks once again

All the best

Yep, my adsense account got disabled 3 months ago and the reasoning was pretty vague. i have never in my almost 4 years of publishing with them had any violations against me and shortly before the release of payment (id say about a week), i get the dreaded email that i am disabled for the POTENTIAL risk of click activity ...

now, my sites are built on Yola (at least 99% of them), and ALL being niche related and location based. the chances that my ads will potentially be clicked more than once (by the same USER over a set period of time) is LIKELY, also considering the nature of my sites.

i had explained everything to Google in my appeal and even sent in additional supporting documentation - still just to be denied !

i can not see that i was in the wrong. however, like any other human out there, a small error could creep up, nothing that had to be extended to me being disabled though. i had double checked on everything and the potential error/s and things were all logged and sent to them. and now ... i am just not hearing from them anymore. they are ignoring me !

does anyone have any suggestions? any way i could get around this and get my account back? perhaps Yola could help?

Once your account is suspended by Google Adsense. You might as well go and dig a grave and bury yourself no second chances.

I've been suspended for about a year now, because a friend tried to do me a favour by clicking on each of the ad links. I appealed several times, with explanations and abject apologies, but have never had so much as a reply from the Google Gods.
I still get the "banned" message when I re-apply.
Abandon hope, all ye who enter here!

about 2 months ago , i decided to monetize my videos. I am vlogger and thought "why not make money doing what I love?" i applied for an adsense account, waited for what seemed like an eternity, finally got approved. then i monetized some videos and uploaded more. then i shared them on social media, which YouTube encourages you to do. Last week I got an email from Google Adsense informing me that my account was suspended for 30 days due to invalid activity. They never told me why, but provided me with a link stating "Most Common Reasons for account closure". I read the list and I'm just as confused as ever. I never ever clicked on my own ads. I never ever told anyone else to click on my ads. I also don't have software/robot doing it either. There were other things on the list which also did not apply to me. Maybe someone clicked on the ads thinking they were helping me or they were wise to Google Adsense and tried to hurt me. Here's where I get confused. When I upload a video, it takes a few days just to get to 70 views. I don't think anyone is really doing anything to hurt me or help me. In my case....i think I can "follow the money". They were going to have to pay out money to someone who was not making them money. So, IF that is the case, they could have emailed me to let me know that my YouTube account was not making enough money if any, so it's not going to work out. Instead, they make me feel like I did something wrong. Which I do not feel is the case. Before they suspended my account, I had a whopping $5.50 . I guess they need it more than I do. So--when this suspension period comes up, I'm cancelling my account with them. I really don't feel right about doing business with someone who can't or won't be up front with me. I could have done something wrong, and they should have told me. Also, they have no customer service and their is no way to get hold of them. So Google Adsense should be called Google NonSense. LOL

Hello Karen, 

I am sorry that you are going through this with Google Adsense. I'm sure it is quite frustrating. Although we are not able to help, we can certainly sympathize. I did do a bit of digging around and was able to find some contact information which I hope might be of help:
