Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
I've been reading some posts and they are very informative.
I do have a question about Adsense Participation. I was previously banned from Google Adsense. If my sister-in-law wanted to participate with her own new domain, content and address, can she be admitted? Of course she will be using my computer to do her publishing and login's, which means her registration (and logins) will come from the same IP address as the one i've used to login to the adsense site before.
Will that be allowed? Can friends or relatives of a previously banned publisher participate in the program? I personally can't see any 'guilt by association' policy in effect...but just wanted to get some thoughts from the group.
The answer to your question "No"
google will have a record of the details you used to login for your previous site, when you sign up for a new site to be accepted all they have to do is cross reference these details.
It has happened with two bother's from the same house using two different PC's but same IP number, one got banned and the other brother's account was also disabled.
You may get away with it, who knows but sooner or later they will spot a patern and your account will be disabled.
The only thing common, once my colleague signs up is we could be checking our adsense accounts from the same IP address. I guess this could trigger a "multiple account" alarm at G.
Can anyone throw light on if this could possibly result in both our accounts getting banned?
Also, do note that once an account has been suspended, a block has been placed on all domains that were running AdSense on that account, so AdSense will not display on those sites unless AdSense manually removes the block.

That's why it pays to have different accounts just in case there is an error somewhere and/or you get banned innocently (whether it's someone else's fraudulent clicks or low CTR or some other reason altogether). BUT Adsense don't allow multiple accounts in one name :(
Thanks for the informative replies. :-)
No to belabor the point, but...in entirety, here's the details of my situation (and question)
I was previously banned from adsense. (and yes, have learned my lesson). My siter-in-law created an account (from a different IP address when she first registered, new domain, different mailing address than my original one). She has read thoroughly through the TOS and abiding by it. (Now here's the kicker). She came over to my house and logged into her adsense account (just once). She usually logs into it from her house.
Now my question is this...will google ban her account having observed that she logged in from a banned IP address that I have also used to login before?
She's a bit paranoid, that she too will be banned after having put in all the hardwork for her site. Afterall, she is abiding by all TOS agreements.
Any insights, thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
He is webmaster for a group of companies. Each company is an individual entity; has its own contentt portal.
The adsense management is entrusted to the webmaster, alongwith all his other responsibilities.
Now the problem is that has to check multiple adsense accounts. If he does it from his own PC, he may get banned for multiple accounts. So the poor fool goes to the neighbouring office, cafe etc where they have different IPs and log into his different acconts from there.
He really has no idea of HTML and wants me to login to his account and setup the ads on the pages
If the customer doesn't know enough about Adsense he could also be clicking on his own ads/encouraging others to click on this ads/doing other risky stuff. And Google would associate him with you. I think Google penalising you for something he does would be unfair but I think that them making a note that you and he are associates/partners/linked is entirely fair.
10 webmasters may check stats while travelling around. I know I have done so in most of the major cities in Europe.
I guess another way to rephrase the question is:
Does google, at the time of adsense sign-up AND/OR payout, check what IP you are logging in from & match that to a database of IP logins of banned users?
Do they have such a check/procedure/policy in place? If so, under what criteria do they ban the new user too if they find a match?
Can any 'Adsense informed-experts' comment on this?
This can definitely be a problem for shared network IPs.
Now when a client logs into our system thier given an assigned IP. THe same IP for that modem. How if you run a popular game site and 100 of your users visit that page and click, the same set of IPs will show up in the logs. Now if they are logging by IP you might see multiple clicks from the same set of IPs over and over. All physically different users but the same group of shared IPs.
