Hello, I was banned from the Adsense program for clicking my own ads several months ago. Believe me, I learned my lesson! I'll never falsely click ads again!

I submitted a new application a week ago and it was approved (this time using a different mailing address and email address).

My question is this: Why am I not able to see any ads on my site? I AM able to see them on one of my ad boxes (I have 2 different adsense ad styles on my site), but ONLY when I view the cached version of my index page.

Thanks in advance for you help.

Any info. would be great.

Maybe they put 2 and 2 together and got 4?

Sorry, don't have any sympathy for you. You committed fraud. Doesn't matter that you learned your lesson now. What were you thinking in the first place?

Don't waste your time with Adsense. It's too late. They will find you out. Think of it this way: how will you feel if you put Adsense ads on all your pages, go to all that trouble, watch the income flow in, wait almost two months for them to approve and send out your check to you, only to have them then discover that you are not allowed in the program and boot you out? (With almost two months' worth of money that you won't be getting? Two months' worth of income that you could have received, had you had different ads on your site?)

Don't waste your time. Take all the Adsense ads off, join one of the other banner ad programs, and start afresh.

When an account is suspended, they put a block on all URLs associated with that account. So while you may be accepted into the program again, those websites will not be able to show ads unless Google manually removes the block.

FWIW, a couple of others were re-accepted after being suspended, but a few days later AdSense re-suspended those accounts, even when different contact information was used.

Jenstar: So why did they bother to accept my site again if they have no intension of running ads on it? Also, ads ARE showing when I looked at the cached version of my site? What's up with that?

No great loss. My site is too small to make any money with those ads anyway.

What other banner ads do people suggest? I've read about others here, but don't know which is almost equal to Adsense.

With the cache, it is going off the URL of the Google IP address, which isn't banned, as opposed to your own URL.

Check out the Advertising forum [webmasterworld.com] for other ideas you can use instead of AdSense.

Thanks Jenstar! Good to know. Still don't know why they accepted me into the program if they have no intention of running ads on my site.

From what I understand from JenStar, they have banned the site you cheated on. I believe you could start a new site, but they might found out who you are and ban you again.

Probably because you put some effort into tricking them you were someone else (different mailing address, different email address).

You probably passed the quick human review, but the backup automated ban on your site didn't get fooled by your new email address/mailing address.

A more in depth review would have happened when you actually had a payout due, so it was probably bound to surface that you were banned sooner or later.

Well, I'll leave the ads on there for a while and see what they do. So far it's been almost 2 weeks since I was re-accepted into the program and no email yet saying I'm kicked out again.

Thanks for the advice guys. I really have learned my lesson though, no matter what anyone else thinks.

Google accepted you, so you are fine! The are not reckless nor dumb to let you slide in if you have serious problem. So dont worry too much about what they say here.

From what I have read here Google don't do second chances... If they suspect you are someone off their blacklist, you simply will not get a penny out of them.
Why not take your adsense code off the site that got banned and make a new site?

I moved the code way down on my page, so you can't see the error message saying "you are not authorized....etc" where the ads should be displaying. That way visitors most likely won't see it. Then IF they ads suddenly start up again, I can move the ad back up.

I personally think one of three things is happening:

1. They are watching the activitiy on my site and adsense back office.
2. They are swamped with dealing with other more important and much bigger accounts and haven't caught up to mine yet.
3. They are teasing me by letting me into the program, but their intention is to never lett my site display ads again.

Just my thoughts and I have nothing ot loose at this point by showing the error message "ads" way down below my page text.

I have no desire to make another site just so I can display the adsense ads. Not worth my time since I'm an amatuer.

You do of course realise that adsense isn't "the only game in town". Whilst this is clearly an adsense forum, I can't understand why you don't try banner advertisers, other contextual advertisers, etc,etc.

Adsense is great-yes, but it doesn't work for everyone. You have already broke the rules-look elsewhere for your income.

I have applied to other click-ad places and for whatever reason haven't been accepted into those programs. I've tried Fast Click at least twice and acouple of others I can't remember the names of.

head over to one of the other webmaster forums and you will find many, many other banner networks discussed/rated. In addition have a look at [webmasterworld.com...] where you will find a few others mentioned

Thanks for the link. I've looked for the other topics but wasn't al that successful. Will try harder. Thanks!
