I just noticed the other day that my Adsense account "is not active" according to the page I encounter after logging in.

No email, or explianation yet (about 1 week old), but have adsense from May 2004 and not changing anything, that I can see in violation, I wonder why it got banner or un-activated, if you will.

Any reasons that I might not be seeing? Without an email from them, I don't know what to think and what are the odds I get reinstated?

I already emailed the "help" desk, just waiting on a reply. Thanks for your suggestions and comments.

Look in your SPAM filter.

Sorry I forgot to mention that part.

Has anyone else encountered this action? Please help. If I am banned is there any hope of getting back into adsense?

Thanks all.

from a former post of yours:

I just added a couple of news iframes to a site and there happens to be adsense ads served on it as well. Will the ads be able to read the content in an Iframe?
-------------------------

If the ads shown were not yours I perhaps see your problem. And it looks like a TOS violation.

Check also the password (or change it). I saw a similar thing and it was a password issue.

Did you recently receive an email from Google to merge your AdSense and/or AdWords account with a Google account? Some people have encountered login problems in the past after Google transferred their AdSense account to a Google account.

The IFrames on one of my sites was updated daily with news. The ads weren't for that reason only. The google ads were just on the same page as the iframes. If this is a violation, that could be the problem, but it certainly wasn't my intentions to use other people's content and my google ads.

Plus I have no email from them, that bothers me even more. Nothing in spam folder or anywhere else. I did change and combine my two accounts about one month ago, could the login problem still be from that?

I guess if I am out for good, I just take the advice in the (link) post above and try to find a resonable competitor for me as a publisher, any suggestions?

yes there is hope. Be sure to send a very polite and well thought-out email to them.

I sent an email to google again and they sent me the original banned email. It was invalid clicks. I am unaware of anyone, other than once or twice myself, clicking links on my sites. The reason I did was I often review and proofread my sites and a link may have caught my eye once or twice. I never intended to up the click rate or revenue.

Either way, that is why I was banned and I emailed them back giving them the apology and etc, so we'll see what happens.

Thanks for all the input.

I just got the official "don't let the door hit you on the way out" letter from Google.....even though it wasn't my intentions and people might think it's harmless, let me tell you, even though I may have clicked an ad invalidly 2-3 times in about 2 years thinking it wouldn't make a big deal, I was wrong.

Keep that in mind, I know it's tempting, but just don't do it, especially if you rely on Google for additional income.

Have a nice day, this is my last post to the Adsense forum.

There has to be more to your being banned than just this!

Well it was for invalid clicks. What I am saying is that if people think its harmless to click on one of their links 2-3 times over 2 years, they may be wrong.

Also, I am unaware at this time of any other click fraud going on at my sites. The official reason they gave me was invalid clicks. Since they cannot see exactly who is clicking, you get banned and there isn't any chance for reinstatment. That is straight from Google.

Either accidental or unintentional self click; you should immediately inform google with exact date time and URL of the page where this click happen to cancel of that click. If you will not inform immediately or inform too late then your account will be deactivated even after a single click.

FWIW, any clicks from a site which does not conform to the AdSense TOS is considered "invalid clicks". So the problem isn't necessarily the specific clicks

Why people always think invalid clicks are self-clicks?
Like if self-clicks would be the only way of cheating.
