- Click your own ads
- Asking other people to click your ads
- Joining a program that promises you that people will click your ads if you click their ads
- Telling all your friends about your sites
- Exchanging Adsense code with other people or programs
- Buying and/or operating so called "Adsense ready sites"
- Having sites with only ads and/or search results on them
- Taking/stealing other peoples content without their permission
My examples are of course some of the obvious things that can get an Adsenser into a lot of trouble. But perhaps other members could give some of the less obvious examples that could get you banned.
Please give me your list of things not to do with your Adsense account.

Why not? One think is your site, your trafic, your legal clicks etc and another how often are you cheking your stats, for one reason or another.
If I have to check the Ad Review centre, I do have to do it at least once per day
It shows the last time you logged in, and I believe they keep track of it
#*$! logs itself in every 15 minutes for me, has done for the last 2 years or so, I don't think theres a problem with logging too often
#*$! = an adsense tool (word seems to be changed by WW filters)
DON'T - make changes to your ads on a page without testing the page first; I just found a page on my site where I had a typo in my PHP include for my ad and it probably has been displaying an error for a month or more.
DON'T - tell your mom how much you're making from adsense; she'll want you to start paying her back for your childhood
2 days later...
"I'm sorry netmeg, you have been removed from the Adsense program. We feel that your screen dimensions are making other Adsense users jealous. However, you are always welcome to use Yahoo's advertising programs."
i see many sites do this and nobody cares :S
example <snip> not my site ;)

[edit reason] See TOS. [/edit]
Logging in once or twice a day is fine. I'm talking about logging into your account like every hour or more.
I can debunk this issue as Google Gadgets has an AdSense Checker for the Google Desktop so if Google didn't want you to monitor AdSense, aka login often, they wouldn't allow the AdSense Checker on their Gadgets site.
My AdSense stats checker (something different) logs in every 15 minutes and displays updates on my desktop and has been doing do for years.
I wouldn't worry about it.

So is putting your url in your WW profile a risk?
Maybe a different risk.
Go over to the Content and Copyright forum and read how some people try to rationalize their "borrowing" of content. Those same people make their way over here to the AdSense forum.
If you post about your good fortunes with AdSense, do you really want those people having easy access to find the content you are using for that success?
-I agree with this. As soon as I strated picking up earnings, I made mistake by asking them the channel as it was not there to idetify, my sites' income fell.But how long could you please remain silence while Google helpline is to help. Their robots reply our questions.
If we lose Googel loses either, so why do not they help us to grow in their line?
Don't keep on logging in all day to check your stats. (I think Google keeps track of that).
-how to test the performance of channels?
