Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on
the ads on your web pages. We have therefore disabled your Google
AdSense account. Please understand that this step was taken in an
effort to protect the interest of the AdWords advertisers.
I have not clicked on my own ads or done anything against the rules. Is there anything that can be done to reinstate my account?
Assuming you're referring to your blogging site, I have a few thoughts which may or may not be related to Google's action:
1. Something called "crispads" running an AdSense lookalike block on the same page. Ads which could be confused with AdSense are not allowed.
2. AdBrite link right next to the AdSense block. I don't know if this could be construed as against the TOS, but they're another competitor of Google are they not?
3. Are you sure Google allows you to use AdSense on that blog host domain? I thought you weren't allowed to run ads on third-party domains.
Anyway be sure to prostrate yourself before Google and tell them you'll clean up your act. The rare person can get reinstated after being kicked out.
I know many publishers/bloggers that have AdBrite on the same page with Adsense and also use a free blog host domain. I am currently using Crispads, and I was unaware that it could violate Terms.
If that was the problem, I'm sure Google has some tolerance if I apologize and take them down, right?

You can dream of that approach but you will not get anywhere, you have one chance with your adsense account and I am afraid yours has now gone, what you have done is against the terms of service which google frown upon and if you have read the TOS you would of known that you can't have competing ads on the same page
This might sound harsh but it the reality of the sutuation and happens every month to a small handful of publishers, I only wish it didn't...sigh
In theory if you have truly done nothing wrong then you would be reinstated, however from posts on this forum Google seems pretty steadfast after the axe has fallen (mostly due to the fact that it's a pretty big setup and no doubt most will call foul if their revenue is stopped) .
The above replies don't really address the fact that the email received from google states the account was disabled because "invalid clicks have been generated on the ads on your web pages." One would think this is why the account was disabled (not do to competing ads).
google dont give the exact reason why the account was disabled it is a generic response but it has been proven time after time that the site owner was at fault and not always due to invalid clicks
