Next week the total amount made from my Adsense will probably be exceeded by the total amount of non-Adsense money from the same sites.

The fact of having more money is nice enough, even thought I could not make a making a living with it.

What makes me really glad is that I finally succeeded in what I think to be the #1 rule in Adsense: DIVERSIFY your income sources.

Yes, I play by the rules. No, I don't click on my ads. But I know that one day I might be banned for some obscure reason, and now it would hurt less!

Congratulations, Frox. Diversification is a good policy in any kind of business. The Internet sure is fun when things work correctly!

Congrats!

Diversificaton is actually a rule of any decent business.

You can't get too dependent on one vendor, one product etc. because if the industry changes you're in trouble.

I would suggest that Google actually try and work with publishers and advertisers in the first instance. I've reported a couple of sites for having "Click on the google ads" on the page, and all but one of them modified the page to comply and are still serving ads. The one that didn't now has a blank space, a copy of the email he got asking him to modify the page, and a long tirade about how unfair it was that they banned him!

A lot of the threads about "I've been banned" here there is more to than meets the eye, and after reading them people tend to assume Google will boot you out on a mere whim.

To be honest, if you play by the rules and ask Google for clarifications if you are unsure, then there isn't any reason to assume they will ban you.

Well done! Even if you never get in trouble with AdSense, at least you will have more money now... ;-)
