Google Adsense account disabled

My Google Adsense account disabled and i was trying to figure out what the reason would be.. i have sent 3 e mails to google, explaining that i did not click on my ads.. now i have just found out the reason and i need some help before i write to google the 4th time.

The reason why my Google Adsense account disabled was that i was using dial-up connection which was too slow in the office and i decided to change my connection to ADSL and i did. I have just found out that all the computers using ADSL connection from the same company for internet connection is using the same IPs and showing the same IPs to outside world, if you do not especially ask for a statistic IP from that ADSL provider. I did not know that so there are many computers in the country showing the same IP to outside world so Google thought i was clicking on ads on my own pages but i did not!

Please help me how would i explain that to Google.

Thank you for your help.

Perhaps, the same way that you explained it here?

Worth a try, but i wouldn't hold my breath. They do know what dynamic IP means. They know the location where the IP is from, atleast by city. And if you got clicks from the same IP address as yours, and if they happen to be from the same city, i doubt they're gonna believe you (i wouldn't either).

So do you think that they finally figured out that you've been clicking your own ads from your friend's house or from the coffee shop down the street, because you just signed up for DSL and they were on it all that time while you were clicking away?

Good luck.

There are many networks of large ISPs and companies that appear as one IP as well as many countries in the world that appear as one IP too, so that is not the issue, and Google seems to handle it quite well, they look at web browser signature, cookies, history of pages viewed and the ads displayed on those pages as you and the person sitting next to you could be viewing the same page but getting displayed different ads, toolbar data, search results served .. They got ways to know, and this cannot be it, think of other possible reasons.

I did not click on my ads but anyone would who are using the same IP from the same ADSL company and there are many! it must be that as google explained that my account was disabled because of invalid clicks and i can only think of this as all the visitors i got were from search engines or from websites that i had exchanged links. I have checked everything and this is only the reason i can see. When i saw my IP in the logs i did not realise someone would also have the same IP.

Unfortunately, we can't really do anything for you as your problem is with Google and the resolution has to be arranged with them.

Fortunately, we have some great posts on things to do if one should find their AdSense account banned. If you were innocent and had not violated Google's AdSense TOS, there are some things you can do to try to get reinstated.

Please read the following threads for some good advice.

Good luck!
