Things not to do with your Adsense account
Because Google might ban you for this

Thought I'd start this thread for new Adsensers to prevent them from doing things they might regret. Here's my top list of things not to do with your Adsense account and Adsense sites:

- Click your own ads
- Asking other people to click your ads
- Joining a program that promises you that people will click your ads if you click their ads
- Telling all your friends about your sites
- Exchanging Adsense code with other people or programs
- Buying and/or operating so called "Adsense ready sites"
- Having sites with only ads and/or search results on them
- Taking/stealing other peoples content without their permission

My examples are of course some of the obvious things that can get an Adsenser into a lot of trouble. But perhaps other members could give some of the less obvious examples that could get you banned.
Please give me your list of things not to do with your Adsense account.

¨Don't keep on logging in all day to check your stats. (I think Google keeps track of that).¨

Why not? One think is your site, your trafic, your legal clicks etc and another how often are you cheking your stats, for one reason or another.
If I have to check the Ad Review centre, I do have to do it at least once per day

Logging in once or twice a day is fine. I'm talking about logging into your account like every hour or more.

It shows the last time you logged in, and I believe they keep track of it.

#*$! logs itself in every 15 minutes for me, has done for the last 2 years or so, I don't think theres a problem with logging too often

#*$! = an adsense tool (word seems to be changed by WW filters)

For sure they track our log in, but even if I do it 200 times per day, Google only can ensure that I am adict to see my stats, that I am crazy for wasting my time in doing that, but no more no less. No relasionship of this behviour w.r.t my site that if is legal is legal.

DON'T - sign up for services with syndicated articles where you just point a domain, plug in your adsense code and they deliver a bunch of much-duplicated syndicated articles. In fact, I wouldn't ever put my adsense code on any page I don't have complete control over.

DON'T - make changes to your ads on a page without testing the page first; I just found a page on my site where I had a typo in my PHP include for my ad and it probably has been displaying an error for a month or more.

DON'T - tell your mom how much you're making from adsense; she'll want you to start paying her back for your childhood

It doesn't hurt anyone by logging in multiple times. You can log in all you want.

Here's my "never mention this on a forum list":
- Never mention page impressions along with total earning (which can be used to calculation eCPM)
- Don't try to impress people by talking about your CRT
- Don't try to impress (or depress) people by mentioning your eCPM

Don't try to impress people by talking about your CRT

Can I try and impress 'em by talking about my LCD? It's 24 inches!

Mine is not 24 inches. :( Google's going to hear about this!

I care. And I think Google does too.

Oh, and WW cares about not mentioning sitenames.

I can debunk this issue as Google Gadgets has an AdSense Checker for the Google Desktop so if Google didn't want you to monitor AdSense, aka login often, they wouldn't allow the AdSense Checker on their Gadgets site.

My AdSense stats checker (something different) logs in every 15 minutes and displays updates on my desktop and has been doing do for years.

I wouldn't worry about it.

There's actually Google Gadgets that are just Google Ads. Literally.

"Add ads to your iGoogle" is the description.

Some of them get 10,000 pageviews a week. Sigh.

I told a few of my friends which I regret right now.
The less you tell, the better off you are. Obviously some of us need to show off and share our success however, be smart about it.

So is putting your url in your WW profile a risk?
Many members do this.

How about telling a few million of your friends how Adsense works?

(Running an Adsense API site gives one a whole different perspective ...)

Maybe a different risk.

Go over to the Content and Copyright forum and read how some people try to rationalize their "borrowing" of content. Those same people make their way over here to the AdSense forum.

If you post about your good fortunes with AdSense, do you really want those people having easy access to find the content you are using for that success?

Instead of wasting 10 seconds looking at stats, do something constructive. The immediate satisfaction may not be there, but the bigger picture is likely to be better.

Do not talk to Google about anything if at all possible.

-I agree with this. As soon as I strated picking up earnings, I made mistake by asking them the channel as it was not there to idetify, my sites' income fell.But how long could you please remain silence while Google helpline is to help. Their robots reply our questions.
If we lose Googel loses either, so why do not they help us to grow in their line?

Don't keep on logging in all day to check your stats. (I think Google keeps track of that).

-how to test the performance of channels?

• Be aware of how your site is promoted.
• Don't employ pop-up prompts or automatic software installations.
• Be aware of how your site is promoted.
Pages showing Google ads may never be loaded in a pop-up. This means publishers need to be very careful when purchasing traffic or setting up ad campaigns with third parties. Before contracting with any ad network, you should ensure that they will never display your site in pop-ups or as a result of the actions of any software application.
• Don't place Google ads on sites that contain prohibited content.
• Don't tamper with the AdSense code.
• Provide a positive user experience

When you are doing well financially, it is best not to flaunt it or talk about how you are doing it. Getting to the top is the easy part; staying there is the hard part. There are always people looking to knock you off your perch.
