Adsense Disabled

I've just discovered my adsense has been disabled, which I'm not too bothered about because Google got a lot better deal from me than I got from them, (ie. Paying me pence for tens of thousands of good unique daily ad impressions).

But I am surprised that I cant find any email from them about it being disabled. Is this normal? Google's lack of service is unbelievable.

I now believe that if Google looses the fight with Bing/Microsoft, it wont be because their services were any better.

I seem to recall a few folks commenting that various emails from Google have ended up in their SPAM folders. Have you checked there?

oops, found it. was in spam, received over 3 weeks ago. Wow, is that how long it was since I last checked on adsense!

Says ..been financially damaging to me for years!

This link the email provides goes straight to a help page that talks about invalid clicks - is this what they are hinting at, or just the most common reason? I didnt think my ads was experiencing any invalid clicks.

mm. I wonder what would happen if one my competitors conveniently gets click friendly with my ads one day?

I find it very rude that Google hasnt even open any discussion with me before they announced there was an issue. mm. maybe thas in my spam too. going to check..

If you could just stop ranting against Google for a minute and check your emails or send them one, maybe you'll find out what happened.

I've checked & rechecked, all I have is an email telling me it has been disabled. No reason, no reply address, no discussion with me about any issues, just disabled.

Like most people I wasnt ever making any real money with adsense, as it was something I tried in the begining and didnt remove after making much more money with other stuff.

Yes, I am ranting, but it because of the frustration of years of bad service I've had with Google, even more so with adwords.

Once you try another ad company, you'll see just how good it was with Google.

@StoutFiles - I've been using a few other companies since last year.

..

I've removed most of the ads now, and this actually might be the best thing I've done for a long time, as all my stats have shown a massive jump up.

I'm now getting much more visitors, they are staying longer, hits on the sale pages have trebled, and actual sales has doubled.

I can understand that the lack of user interaction with adsense has had a positive effect, but I dont understand how a previous good steady stream of visitors has now suddenly taken a big step up, I've never had so many visitors in one day. Would Google reduce traffic to me because of adsense?

Will soon see if today is as good as yesterday, (looking good so far).

Google didn't pay you much for those tens of thousands of good unique daily ad impressions you sent their way. Then AdSense kicks you out and two days later you discover you're getting more visitors and sales of whatever have doubled. Sounds like a good outcome.

If my new girlfriend was nicer, more pretty and treated me better, I wouldn't waste time wondering why the old girlfriend of three days ago dumped me.

I'm really not bothered about using adsense, just Google's lack of service upsets me.

When things are going alright, everything is fine. If your not sure about anything, they have lots of help pages. But if you got a problem, you wont likely find the answer there, and getting any support beyond the help pages is really frustrating. Talking to them often actually leads me backwards. Google didnt offer me any help in sorting what ever the issue was, so I came here! Anyway, ranted long enough!

Stats looks like its going to finish the same as yesterday. My income has just doubled!

So, the advice to everyone, just try running your website without adsense for a couple of days.

From this explanation it appears that you aren't replacing Adsense, you're just removing ads altogether in hopes people won't leave and buy products on your website.

I always wondered about placing adsense on COMMERCE related sites...

For instance I am building an online store for a local tire/rim/repair shop..He inquires about monetizing the site, I say you will probably be pulling in COMPETITORS ads..He says never mind I would make more selling MY OWN products.

It ONLY makes sense if you sell a product and then REMOVE Adsense that your sales will go up! Right?

I don't see the point in monetizing an e-commerce site and getting paid CENTS when I can be getting paid DOLLARS to sell my own products?

I agree I wouldn't buy from a store with adsense on the product pages, that just looks cheap. It's fine if you put adsense in an article section, but I would still try to monetize those articles by encouraging the sale of my products, not send traffic away.

So this topic isn't really about Adsense underperforming in place of other ads...

Of course if you're selling a product you don't want to send people away from your website. Some of us don't sell a product but provide a service and need ads for all income. For those people, losing Adsense would be somewhat devastating.

@koan, it wasnt done in way that looked cheap, and was only one image ad on the page. I felt that if the visitor wasn’t that interested in what I had, they at least had something advertised that was similar that may interest them. Well, what a mistake that was! (had my best day's sales yesterday)

Use the competitive ads filter.

It depends on the product and application. I have a site where I sell something and sales seem to go up when AdSense is on the site and go down when I remove AdSense.

I don't see the point in monetizing an e-commerce site and getting paid CENTS when I can be getting paid DOLLARS to sell my own products?

The monetization on that site of mine pays me dollars, not cents. Again, it's all in implementation (business model) and the topic of the site.

Juan_G,

These Adsense notification mails do not even reach gmail accounts.

MB,

thanks for your wishes, but this client has turned into Google enemy now.

I was contacted by a nice lady from Adsense support earlier in the month who didn't like one of my web sites in my portfolio for lack of content which was fair enough as it wasn't completely build out yet. Web site was quickly removed, they were alerted and she kindly replied the same day thanking me.

I suppose it comes down to your history as a publisher and how they value your business.

Given the amount of spam I get from Gmail I wouldn't.

Places like eBay, PayPal, AdSense, Amazon etc. I use a "real" email address which doesn't get filtered anywhere or anyhow. Just jumps up out of Mailwasher and bites me!

I recently moved my main site to a new host and it took me several days to realise (due to a lot of teathing troubles) that my Google Alert emails were not getting through and I assume any communication from G would not get through. These were not in a spam folder and appeared to be lost - changed my email in G account pretty quick.

Do G still not give such critical info as imminent account disablement when you log into Adsense site? It would appear safer than email

Hard to believe unless you are a top buying adwords client.

For many the communication quality at Google is steady at lowest levels.

With "Google email" I mean email from Google AdSense support, at google.com (see the quoted link).
