Cannot apply Google Adsense :(

This is the truth that I cannot apply Google Adsense and I would like to ask if someone knows the reason :(

Last time I had an Adsense account and use it on my website. I also told my friends about it and asked them if they can click on the Ads.

But the bad things were that they had clicked too too much :(
Then Google had terminated my account. They said:

<snip typical invalid clicks - account termination email>

It means I have to try again :(
I had registered again (using another email, the same website), but they didn't send me an approve email :(
Then I think I should make another website.
I registered again (another email, another website), but they still did not send me any email for apporing :(

I would like to ask if someone know why? Did they ban my IP address? or ban my personal information? or ban my website?

Thank you very much!

Another 2 cents :)

When using a new website (of course) to apply. But remember, use totally different registration infomation, since Google will undoubtly use WHOIS information to see if it's a bad guy banned before :)

As an AdSense publisher AND an AdWords advertiser I think they let you off easy.

Did they drop your web site to the bottom of Google hell or just ban you from AdSense?

Throwing you down a well and capping it with asphalt seems more appropriate.

Consider that Google is like an ex-wife that you must now convince you won't cheat on again and she can do worse than Lorena Bobbitt.

joni, did you get a check from AdSense? If so a first step would be mailing back the money, along with a statement that you feel bad about what happened. Send them your weblogs and try and help them refund the money to the advertisers you stole from.

Have you sent an apology letter yet, confessing exactly what you've done? Be as honest as possible, offer to write a testimonial for them(to warn others), offer to pay back everything you stole or even pay a penalization fee(for the extra work Google had to do to refund advertisers for the fraudulent clicks)... Google might appreciate your honest input and give you a second chance. I see this as your only option. I probably won't work, but it might.

I've seen this advice posted over and over. "send letter explaining situation". Does this kind of behavior actually work? has anyone seen proof that someone got their account reinstated because of an apology/explanation letter?

I'm just thinking G probably receives the letter and it goes into the trash bin. Are they going to actually investigate your particular case out of some consideration over your plight and repent? because it wouldn't make sense for them to just re-open your account like that.

Just wondering. It's repeated as a mantra, but I never heard of positive results. Anyone care to comment and show otherwise?

I don't think an apology letter would work, but I think that it is his only chance, albiet a small one.

If i were you i would move on
If you did manage to get in through some back door i.e. another family member different address new website contact details etc. etc. , I suspect if they found out 2 months down the road they would boot you out and keep the money

so my advice move on find another context programme and accept less income but hope whoever you choose grows and provides a good income over time
I am afraid old adage if you play with fire you can get burnt apply's to all of life including trying to defraud advertisers etc.

keep your nose clean and abide by whoever now accepts you TOS

Stop giving this guy ideas of how to get in. I am happy he got kicked out, people like him are every advertiser's nightmare.

Stupidity isn't the same as stealing, which is what he did.
