Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
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!

I am an AdSense Publisher well-respected in mouthy forum circles, and I am writing to you to express my concern over your response to jonidontcry's re-application to the AdSense programme.
While I recognize that jonidontcry's past blatant abuses of the programme's Terms of Service and repeated attempts to re-apply pseudoanonymously may have been flagged by your system as suspicious, I want to be the first one to assure you that jonidontcry's motives are not nefarious; rather, the behaviour was driven by honest inanity.
Though I have not met jonidontcry personally -- and in fact I'm not even sure of their sex, or first language -- I'd like to offer my FULL POWER AS AN ADSENSE PUBLISHER to vouche for jonidontcry officially.
>>Or ban my personal information?
same as above
>>Or ban my website?
without a doubt your first website will be banned for life, each time you try to register another domain name with adsense you are trying to pull the wool over their eyes by using yet another email address and domain name, don't forget its not just your IP address and domain name its also your browser and operating system which you will not of changed will leave a pattern.
Its pointless posting here expecting sympathy because you just wont get any, you have done wrong and you are paying the price, try another text ads company because you ain't going to get another adsense account in your own name again, and if you managed to get one its only a matter of time before they cancel it again anyway
Bottom line is...get over it and move on
But have you ever thought you were in the same situation like me?
If you do something wrong, don't you want to be forgiven and have a chance?
My mistake was that I just told them to click on the ads. I had thought that they just clicked on which they were interested in, or just something interesting. I had never told them to click too much like this. And it's my mistake that I hadn't told that.
I just wanna ask if someone would give me any help? Cause now I'm launching a new site and I really want to have Adsense on it.
Thank you very much :)
Here's your problem. You want the judge to let you off with a warning. So maybe, just maybe, you have a right to hope if you lay out the facts for the judge, you show that you understand what you did was wrong, and then demonstrate clearly that you will not do it again because you have undergone a profound personal transformation.
But instead, you come before a jury of your peers - WebmasterWorld - and you not only show no remorse, you show no recognition what you did was wrong. You ask us whether we know why Google was banning you? Isn't it as clear as day? You stole from people. And then you have the temerity to blame your friends for clicking too much.
No, the problem lies squarely on your shoulders, chum, and any judge in his or her right mind would dress you down severely and show you no remorse in the sentencing.

Personally, I tell my friends who visit my website to NOT click on the ads. I suggest you do the same.
You also might want to take a look at the TOS of any such advertising before you join it. Understandthe TOS and then follow it like the quaran... or bible.
Just think of it from the advertisers point of view. If you paid money to advertise your website would you want someone who didn't plan on buying something from you or was even interested in your website to click on your ad?
So again, I suggest you do not have your friends click on your ads. And do NOT tell your visitors to click on your ads either.. if they want to click on them, they will. They don't need you to tell them to.
As for getting back into the program I suggest the same as an earlier poster. Email the support team telling them EXACTLY what happened. Do not lie to them. Then MAYBE, just maybe they will let you back in. But if they EVER see an invalid click again on your website, you will be dropped like a can of worms.
If they don't let you back in. Just check out the other sections of WW and you will find another contextual advertising company you can join. Just don't look to be making the same amount of money.
But have you ever thought you were in the same situation like me?
If I were ever a situation in which I STOLE MONEY from people because of my greed and was BANNED because of it, I would realize my mistake meant I lost the opportunity to be a part of the adsense program and move on.
There are thousands of webmasters working their butts off to make great and informative sites, I'm glad the adsense team is spending time on these people instead of some kid whose friends "clicked too too much".
The boy did wrong, and was banned. Now, getting back into Adsense will be v. difficult - either learn about the system and live life on the edge, never knowing whether or not youll be banned, or negotiate with Google to see if theyll let you back in (I wouldnt suggest that you admit to asking people to click, but maybe if you confessed that your friends thought that they were doing you a favour...).
At the end of the day, if your site is worthy of being in AS, then if you behave yourself youll probably be let back in. If it isnt, then you wont.
And if you are let back in, hopefully youll now be a valued member of AS, knowledable of the rules and eager to be a credit to the system.
Apologies for lack of apostrophes etc but am typing from a Chinese keyboard on win98 in Mandarin, it aint easy :)
I mean, if I were google I would focus on baning contents rather than people. Actually checking people's identity is quite hard, but checking for contents is their speciality.
And now I have a question for you: how many clicks did you get through your friend?
-Sever all ties with your family and friends.
-Use acid to burn off your fingerprints.
-Complete plastic surgery overhaul.
-New documents: passport, drivers license, Air Miles card
P.S. Listen, I get the jonidontcry has apparently made an "honest" mistake, on account of being very young or perhaps not the swiftest finch on the wing. Never the less, I much echo the sentiment of others here that the only way to get back in is no secret: build a good quality site, attract targeted traffic, and pray.
So you think if someone makes mistakes and never have a chance again?
It sounds like you feel the only mistake you made was getting caught.
If I accidently had an piece of merchandise in my pocket while walking out the store, then I should get a second chance.
If I STOLE a piece of merchandise, got caught, got banned from the store, the merchant has EVERY RIGHT to NEVER LET ME BACK IN AGAIN.
Google has already see your character. You had no problem stealing when you thought you were going to get away with it. Only when you got caught did you stop. That is not the type of person I want to spend my adword money on.
Google also needs to keep their advertisers happy, since they are the ones who pay for the program. If you were readmitted to AdSense, I am sure they wouldn't be happy to know that an admitted fraudulent publisher managed to get a new account.
Bottom line: You will not be able to get a new AdSense account, so you should investigate other contextual advertising programs instead.
Which meant you asked your friends to commit click-fraud for your financial gain ... doesn't matter if it's 1 click or 200.
Why on earth would Google want you back, especially when it seems that your whole intent was to cheat the system in the first place?
