You will need to contact AdSense directly to inquire about your earnings.
You clicking on your own ads is not the only reason you could have received this, others include inciting clicks or using bots to increase clicks/impressions, etc.

I never cheat Adsense!
I never click in my Ads, and never told my visitore that please click in googles ads!
even my CRT was decreased in last week.
I want know if anybody have this experience before?
Can I phone the Adsense Team?

>>I never cheat Adsense!
Hmm not heard that one before
>>I never click in my Ads, and never told my visitor's that please click in googles ads!
same as above
>>I want know if anybody have this experience before?
Yeah we normally have to put up with someone moaning at least once a month!

$2200 tell us about your site, if it was realy getting that much what about the number of clicks and immpressions that you were getting. I feel if the stats makes a sense then they might reply to your emails otherwise they will send you a decent mail that they can not reactivate your account.
Let us know the stats of the website etc.

Posting your AdSense statistics is not going to help your case. It is against the Terms of Service to republish any statistics from your AdSense account.

Google will not disclose how many clicks you had before they canceled it. They just send you this e-mail saying that we re-check your account and confirm high number of clicks. As for your earnings, you should receive a check next month for earnings from this month, however, it may not happen.
There is nothing you can do to get your account back. Try to move beyond adsense. Try to check your logs to find out what IP was spamming you. Surely, there was someone clicking on your ads.
You may have noticed a high impressions in your account one day and you may not have done anything about it.
Wait for an e-mail from G and see what they have to say. If you get an e-mail just like I described above move to different network just like G has.
I heared yahoo will introduce something similar to adsense.
I know this stuff because one day I got an e-mail from G just like you did.

As NCW 164X said, you are not unique, there is a constant stream of people posting here about being banned by AdSense.
Invariably the poster has, like you, made very few posts on WebmasterWorld. Very few regular members have been banned, and as far as I can recalled, no regular member has been permentantly banned without reason.
I those instances where WebmasterWorld members have had some data to work on, in the majority of instances it has been shown that the website that had been banned was, to say the least dodgy.
If you have a legitimate problem, then take it up with Google. If there is fraud or other breaking of TOS, then I would say they are quite at liberty to retain the earnings for January.

Dear Jaunty Edward,
My website has about 65000 page immpression (by adsense report) and about 1700 daily clicks in last 3 months, and $2200 per month with this number of visitors is not irregular.
after about 20 hours thay didn't answer me and I'm waiting...
Is any phone number that I can talk to a Adsense employees?
| 1:53 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I haven't heard anything about people getting back in after stuff like this, but if you really didn't do anything (which is rarely the case), you should email google a good explanation of the problem and also your serverlogs.

I found and joied here on Feb 23, 2005,
I'm professional in programming but amateur in web,
I started my website 4 months ago, and now my web site has about 20000 unique daily visitor.
So I don't know what's mean of "regular members"!

I do that last night and now I'm waiting... thanx for your advise,
| 2:01 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
something does not seem right
1,700 clicks per day x 30 days = 51,000 clicks
$2,200 / 51,000 clicks = 4 cents per click
now i know some publishers do recieve a lot of low cost clicks but this seems very low as an average i would have thought most should be higher than this
Also with 65,000 impressions per day i would expect you to be able to make as much if not more with other programmes
just accept it and move on
If G believes there was fraudulant clicks you will not recieve a check
If G has cancelled the account for other resons you should recieve a check
move on saeed

Please lead me one,
before I try 2 another PPC program, but their reports always sucks, only Adsense report says true,
| 3:17 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
1700 clicks a day at 4 cents each. I don't think so. Probably 10% of those are real and that is why you got canned. Besides, it's always the same thing. New user, broken english "i honest, i good".

"I started my website 4 months ago, and now my web site has about 20000 unique daily visitor."
Where does your traffic come from?
| 3:38 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
saeed, what you don't understand is that it doesn't matter if YOU weren't clicking, or asking your visitors to click.
If Google sees a suspicious pattern in the clicks, which could be caused by many things, they can cancel your account. If they notice that your site seems to be "Made for AdSense" with no other reason to exist, they can cancel your account.
Your site seems to have grown from nothing very quickly--that in itself may have made Google suspicious.
I suggest you read through the archives the past six months, and look for threads about people who had their accounts disabled. There has been some useful discussion about possible causes.
| 3:40 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Sandbox = slower growth
20,000 uniques per day sounds very high for 4 month old site? and remember from post looks like that traffic was gained in less than 3 months
many on here put 1 to 2 years or more to get to much lower level of traffic
mmm something not quite right here
| 4:00 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Did he say the site was 4 months old - or adsense on the site was there for only 4 months... just giving benefit of the doubt...
I don't know your site, but 65k daily impressions at a low $ rate sounds like a very homogenous site, and I would not be looking at adsense anyway.

I buy some traffic from 3 websites in iran. (like adwords)
I build my website to making money, please tell me about this:
"they can cancel your account. If they notice that your site seems to be "Made for AdSense" with no other reason to exist,"
my website topics is "Iran Entertainments"
there are a lot of page like, jokes, chatrooms, Dating and matchmaking and ....
but I make my site for earning money, is this against with google policies?
| 4:06 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
> is this against with google policies?
Well the policies are very vague, but my understanding is that they want to cut away sites that have almost no contents, and only ads (scrapers etc.)
| 4:20 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
but my website had no change during last 3 month!
way they didn't bann me 3 month ago!
| 4:30 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I see you mentioned you were buying traffic. This may be the main issue. For example, maybe they were serving your page up as a popup (against TOS), or there was a lot of low quality traffic (no conversions).
| 4:41 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
"Invariably the poster has, like you, made very few posts on WebmasterWorld"
A running theme at this point. Additionally, english language skills seem to fit a certain pattern as well. No slight intended, of course, on this dictum. I have trouble with english myself after 4 shots of whiskey.
| 4:45 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I didn't use any popup page in my site.
They mention in their email that
"It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on the ads on your web pages. We have therefore disabled your Google AdSense account."
but they did'nt tell me in which page or with which IP address they saw this problem.
I have another question,
If someone (not you) open your page and do a lot of clicks on your Adsense, what is happening? and what should you do to preventing that?
This is only a guess, I sent an email to adsense and requested IP address of computer that cause this problems, So I'm waiting ...
| 4:55 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Good luck to you! Let us know what happens next.
| 5:25 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
The fact that you were buying traffic may not be as important as the where that traffic was coming from.
You say that you were buying traffic from three sites in Iran. Does Google have many advertisers for your keywords in Iran? If not, clicks from Iranians who got referred to your site won't convert for advertisers.
Google may have seen an unusually large number of clicks from Iranian IPs and decided that the clicks were "invalid" (for business reasons) even if they weren't fraudulent.
| 5:36 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
The google didn't answer my email.Now, What should I do?
| 5:38 pm on Mar 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
How does Google know what kind conversion rate the advertiser gets?
