Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Google blocked my account and mentioned the reason that my account was linked with an account which was previously disabled for the invalid clicks.
I didn't have any other account then how it is possible to be linked with the banned account.
I write an email to them and explained everything in detail and now I am waiting their reply.
Would anyone tell me why my account is blocked and what should I do now. My site was having Adsense for the last 10 months and I never had an account before and my one and only source of traffic was Adwords and I had a lot of investment on it.
Can anyone help me what should I do now.
I never seem to hear someone say I was running a site on green widgets with plenty of good content and a couple of distinct adsense blocks, that were clearly adverts and I got banned!

i have the same cycle going on..accounts getting banned....You can join again but after a month or so...just before it's time to get paid, you will get banned.
Sounds like that's your problem. You got banned once, and you keep trying to sneak back in. Your new accounts aren't being shut down for click fraud; they're being shut down because you've signed up under false pretenses. (Unless you're reapplying under the same name, with the same address, etc. and Google isn't catching that before approving the account. And even if that is the case, Google may feel--not nreasonably--that it's in most people's interest to have a short approval process even if that means catching banned "reapplicants" after the fact. After all, why should new applicants have to wait weeks or months for approval just because some people with banned accounts won't concede that the relationship is over?)
Man. What don't you understand: one person / business entity = one account. Accounts (plural) sounds like a scam to me.
Unless you are a rotten apple or some kind of delegated Adsense manager for other parties, I don't see why you'd need to have more than one account.
At the very least understand this; if I, with my limited skills, can ID your network card's MAC address from my server, you better believe Google knows what kind of underwear you wear.. why try and fool them?
If its only dishonest people that have this happen to them, please all you honest people get busy with thos PM's/
I just had an adsense account cancelled by a disgruntled site owner who I refused a link exchange with, they even admitted they were going to to crash my business. My logs have inidcate they clicked the *** out of my adds over a 3 hour period, and today, my account is banned.
Have contacted google, waiting for a response

For this, I have a special folder "link request spam"
I receive several emails per month where mostly MFAs want to exchange links with me.
I thought when one of them becomes angry because I refuse to link, I store the email as proof.
For this, I have a special folder "link request spam"that is a good idea. Being honest sometimes makes one forget how the dishonest operate. In future, I'll save those requests just in case one of them turns into Mr Adsense Nasty! Thanks :)
