Then apply for YPN when it's availible for europe and put it on the pages she doesn't know about. Do some research on her IP's, maybe use geolocation to avoid showing ads to your country.
And thanks for the lesson... I was considering showing someone one of my sites. Not going to happen.. :)
she loved to travel and write about many countries in the world, all sites were tourism websites, so i still have tons of content, but no income (i am from europe)
Maybe, it would have been a good idea to give her some shares for the content she writes.
Ask your girlfriend to apologize
Offer her a plan to install channels for all her content and to pay her 40% from this channels.
Make a contract with her
Write to Google that it was something like a strike for more wage, the contract as a proof, that it will not happen again.
BTW, my GF asked me why i was laughing, as I was reading this thread, and I said "Nothing". Don't want to give her any ideas."
Haha agreed man.
Does it mean any of my competitors can drive me out of business by clicking endlessly on my Adwords?
That's exactly my point.
And to prove it, I'm going to play the russian rulette with a poor unknown guy.
I'm going to search on a keyword and I'll bookmark the first adsense site in the SERPS.
I'm going to bookmark it in my four computers and tell my wife and kids all click every day at least 10 times each on the ads.
Let's see what happens.
Scary? Of course, I would not do it, lol.
The handful of people who have wrongfully banned from adsense because of such things have been reinstated (at least all the ones I have seen.).
I have had people attack my sites before. I keep in contact with Google and provide them with all the relevant information I can muster. No problems, no bannings.
The likely outcome of anyone attempting to do such an attack is they themselves would be banned, if they had an account or an interest an account.
