I have filed for reconsideration. But, i am not sure, how much time it takes. Can someone tell average time they will need to get back to me regarding this.

I know that Adsense team has been really slow in responding in recent times, but just wanted to know, if someone has had experience of this nature.

It is strange that they found violation on our website while all the content is original and nothing is auto-generated.

Below is what the email said...

VIOLATION(S) FOUND:

It is important for a site displaying AdSense to offer significant value
to the user by providing unique and relevant content, and not to place ads on auto-generated pages or pages with little to no original content.

Your site should also provide a good user experience through clear
navigation and organization. Users should be able to easily click through your pages and find the information they are seeking.

Did you clear up the violations?

i am saying that they have sent in error as the website does not violate any conditions mentioned.

1. Doesn't have auto generated pages.
2. The content is unique.
3. We place only two ads per page and they are placed correctly, as per requirements.
4. Website doesn't have any affiliate links or paid links.

So, i have sent them an email asking for policy clarification as they didn't mention any URL, except the main page of the site. Main page of the site doesn't have any ads on it.

No offense, but everyone thinks they have a top-notch web site. It sounds like your content is not relevant, high quality. The rest doesn't matter long-term.

How many pages are on your site? And who wrote the articles, someone with first-hand knowledge and experience, or someone in a far off land who is just writing an article based on some keywords? Also, how old is the site and how long has AdSense been on it?

All the content has been checked and verified by our permanent employees and written by people from different fields as it is a general website on current affairs. The content is of good quality and not copied from any other sources online.

Pages on site are around 3000.

The website has been online for almost two years and Adsense has been been running for almost 4 months.

I think reconsideration will not work until you clear the violation. Better contact adsense team and ask for clarification.

As i was told by some people that Adsense team takes around 2-3 weeks to respond to reconsideration request, i also asked for policy clarification.

I got the following response, within few hours, for policy clarification request.

Hello,

Thanks for your email. However, please be aware that because your site was
found to be in violation of our program policies, it is no longer eligible
for participation in the AdSense program.

Your account remains active, and you are welcome to place Google ads on
other sites which comply with AdSense policies.

This sounds very much like another recent thread here.

Does the above translate into: "We paid some people a few dollars each to write articles and then published those articles?"

Yeah, that sounds right in this case.

Yes, we paid money to people from respective fields to write articles.

And, those were checked by our in-house team, before they were posted.

Is this a problem ?

Could be. Even if your "articles" are unique enough to pass a copyscape test, if they're shallow (i.e. the content is pretty much the same as other content out there, just worded differently) they may decide it's a bad risk for advertisers.
