Its hard to prove 100%, but im pretty certain at this point there is a coordinated effort to get my portfolio of sites banned from adsense.
Sudden, aggressive reporting of content "as adult", when its not, aligned with a click bombing campaign, then my sites were DOS attacked, and now im even getting warnings from google adsense that I have 3 days to make changes on a site that has NEVER RUN ADSENSE.
Has google lost its fricken mind?
There is no way to report this "pattern" to google, so I fear they may actually get me banned somehow with this multifaceted attack.
Seems ive grown too big and am on a lot of peoples radar now. Im beating more and more competition, and they are trying to shut me down instead of beating me on merit.
What would you do? I wish I could talk to someone at google so they dont see this as separate events.
I figure, if you get enough warnings within a small timespan they will just ban your entire account.
How can you ever get really big, if the bigger you get, the frequency of warnings go up, which leads to banishment?
My sites are 10X more squeaky clean than my competitors.
Im tempted to just start reporting the hell out of all the porn on my competitor sites daily. They are really really in violation of google TOS, and I bet one of them is doing this to me.
What would you do?
(im currently setting up direct advertising, and getting rid of google altogether. Their business model is completely flawed because it allows you to get banned so easily for no good reason)
