Smart pricing aside, little do I hear any mention of the possibility that there is a completely separate Adsense algorithm possibly in play.
I'm looking for anyone who may have information that would indicate such a thing exist. Such as 30, 60, or 90 day penalties.
While there is a lack of information on the topic, which might suggest a system of Adsense penalties does not exit. The rational side of my mind says don't be naive, and that its a very obvious methodology for Google to apply.
Why wouldn't you have Adsense penalties?
I'm open to hear what others think...
I haven't seen a sign of it. But I am not privy to anyone's deep stats other than my own.
|Such as 30, 60, or 90 day penalties. |
I haven't heard of anything like that.
I'm not sure what you even mean. Can you explain your idea a little more?
Beyond Smart Pricing, which I don't see as a penalty, the only real penalty is getting tossed out of the program.
I brought this up a couple of weeks ago at "Adsense in your city" (San Antonio). They stated that "everybody gets 68%", this prompted me to inquire about smartpricing and other "possible vaiables". The response was along the lines of "other than smartpricing, everybody gets 68%"

Perhaps just as Google can send certain type of traffic, quality traffic and non-quality traffic. Adsense would, not necessarily display the highest paying add all the time, but present it a proportion of the time, based on the penalty.
For instance: $5 ad, High CTR may only be shown for part of the day despite having the inventory for it for all day, because your site offers less value for advertisers (such as a left-aligned ad, an ad under a title, etc.)
Why would they not choose to maximise their revenue, high CTR clicks for you is high CTR clicks for them, unless they are showing CPM ads..
Restricting the serving of high paying high CTR ads would be cutting off their noses to spite your face..
As netmeg says ..simpler just to smart price or boot you out ..
A "penalty" is a bit difficult to define. But I do believe that sheer volume is a factor. And it makes sense from the G perspective IMO.
If G can serve a million ads to one site instead of a thousand ads to mulitiple sites then my bet is they serve the million ads to one site.

They absolutely do have AdSense penalties, you can find many of them discussed in WebmasterWorld.
Those threads usually start with:
"MY ACCOUNT WAS BANNED!"
Any penalty less is kind of a why bother when it comes to AdSense.
