Google just suspended my account for invalid clicks without any warning or anything. I have never made any invalid clicks or clicked my own adds. I was shocked to receive this as I have been with the program for years.

I find it very unfair that they can just cut you off without warning. And no explanation.

I used to think Google was a fair company but not anymore.

It's Saturday.

Google does not suspend accounts on Saturdays/Sundays.

Phil, if you are within TOS, write them or call them.
There must be way to sort this out.
Especially if you are with the program for years.
Best of luck!

Philr - there are lots of postings on Webmasterworld with exactly the same theme. Try looking around.

Good luck with G.

Philr I'm wondering, in your profile you state an interest in affiliate programs. Perhaps you should look at the ads you have on the same pages as Adsense - just a thought cobber.

The "do this" thread that you reference (about Adsense exchanges) has found its latest and improved permutation is AdSense Revenue Sharing Amongst Forum Members. [webmasterworld.com]

Who needs to run an exchange when all you have to do is sign up for forums and start clicking on the ads that appear next to your buddy's latest post?

I'm sure the advertisers will be pleased to see this practice proliferate.

If this latest version of gaming the system - forum revenue sharing - is allowed to stand that tells me the system is broken.

It happens all the time. I don't use Adsense, but it has happened to people I know, and whom I trust to be within ToS.

Assuming you had not joined the Rev Share program cited in your previous post, but both AdSense accounts were acessed from the same computer, then perhaps both accounts became associated and when one was banned so was the other.

If that is the case you may want to follow the advice in this tutorial:

I suspect philr did in fact join that scammer adsense click affiliate program he wrote about here last Dec.

He says he never clicked his own ads but did he ask others to click on his behalf, directly or indirectly? If so that is likely why he was booted and I fully agree with G's decision.

It's also interesting how most everyone always say's they are totally innocent of wrongdoing in these adsense acct closed posts but if you look at their old posts you often see subjects which could cause this to happen.

An example is another innocent of wrongdoing thread where we found an earlier post where that member (from India or Pakistan) said he gets lots of traffic from all his friends and relatives, who he solicits to visit his website (and they likely click too).

Webwork, I share your concerns. There's something not quite right about such forums as far as the spirit of adsense goes. Definitely a grey area.
