ads on a page, it's previous account has been banned




9:39 pm on Aug 24, 2005 (gmt 0)

First of all, I greet you all - I'm new here! :)

Here's the thing. Me and my friend are starting to run a small portal. He had an adsense account, but was banned, because of providing invalid clicks. We both did it, so I gues they probably marked my IP too. Don't say it, I know. But we were young and stupid... :( (last month) :P

Anyway, I created another account on adsense for some other projects. I am now wondering, is it allowed for me to put ads on the page, on witch we were providing invalid clicks, because of witch he was banned?

And another, minor, question: How long does it take for adsense crawlers to switch from public to relavant ads, sience you added the ads for the first time on your page?

I am sorry for my broken english - if there is anything you don't understand, please, ask me! ;)

Thanks for any response!

It seems the common thread through 95% of all people banned from adsense is they are young and stupid.

1 month has not made you much older, nor much wiser.

Consider yourself lucky that you have not been tagged yet and find some other sources of ad revenue with less permanent consequences if your youthful indiscretions raise their head again.

I think google could fix half their problems if they required people to be 21 to be in adsense and provide proof of age.

Bottom line is adsense is not a toy, so leave it alone and do something else.

Thank you for your answer.

I agree. But it _did_ make me older and wiser. What makes people "wise"? Small or large life experiences, just like this one. Ain't this whole topic a proof, big enough to show you my way of thinking has changed? And I guarentee you it is the same with my friend.

My version of bottom line:
We made a big mistake, we got our lesson and we learnt from it!

And I asked you nicely to say nothing about it...

Don't say it, I know.

Anyhow, I learned some new words bacause I had to read your post with a dictionary in my hands. :P
- allways be possitive -

Have a nice day while I will sleep! ;)

Welcome :)

I suggest you do not place google ads on the banned site, it will get your new account banned as well. Either place different ads on the site, or trash it and start a new one. I would personally rewrite all content, make up a new name and domain for the site and switch hosts.

I think you know it by now, but don't ever click on your own ads or ask anyone to. Even be careful about telling friends about the site and how you make money with it, as they may try to "help" you by clicking on your ads. The few extra dollars or cents are just not worth it.

And remember: you may make very little in the beginning but when you work hard and make a good site you will get visitors and it will pay off. Just play fair :)

...yeah, learn from your mistakes, work hard and don't look just at the end of the month. And by the way use a spell check
