All My Adsense Websites Were De-Indexed - should I remove Adsense?

Ok, so I own/manage about 2 dozen different sites. Some of my sites are affiliate based, some are adense only, some just informational. Or a combination. Some use CMS, some static, different hosting, etc.

Over the weekend I noticed w/alarm about half of them being totally de-indexed by google. No site: results, no link: results, nada.

So, going through them all, some of them I rarely update or touch. Looking for malware, etc,. These all run original content about pretty bland topics, ecom, etc.

I did notice one thing they had in common. All of the de-indexed sites except one run adsense. All of the still-indexed sites (except one) DON'T run adsense.
{That one seems to be running some sort of 3rd party adsense ad.}

Looked at the sites I have in WMT, nothing really shows, except one site showed a Guidelines Violation warning. But when I checked a few minutes later, the warning was gone.

I don't participate in link schemes, spamming, any of that. most of these sites aren't linked to any other ones. I did notice a 2x spike in adsense earnings a few days earlier. Now it's about 1/10th.(adsense acct. is still working)

So...has anyone here experienced this kind of thing? What did you do? Should I file reconsideration reports en-masse? Earnings-wise, I'd give up my adsense acct. in a heartbeat to get those sites re-indexed.

There's no reason to remove Adsense. All that did was show Google which sites you own. It didn't cause the de-indexing so removing Adsense won't get the sites back in the index either.

Right or wrong, Google thinks you violated a guideline. You need either to fix that, or communicate with Google and show them that there is no violation.

That makes sense, I guess. If it were just an adsense problem they would have turned if off completely. I just need to find out what they don't like about my sites. (or me!)

When you add google code to your website - no matter if analytics or adsense you allow google exactly to monitor all your traffic. This will allow to recheck your status and rank in detail. If you have tricked in the past they can easy detected and remove you from the index. But ... after 6 years normally your sites will come back if it is deindexed (no joke - that was the waiting time for my domains).
