I would guess G has seen your account gets a high percentage of fraudulent (or what Google considers fraudulent) clicks and ending your relationship.
Looks like your new so may I ask was there any indication on your facebook page you make money from the ads?

Google won't give you a reason the guidelines are all online. Not very many even old members ever got their account back.

You have to look at your account look at the clicks on a per day/month basis and then look to see how many Google refunded. This might give you an indication of why your now banned.

or look at the site how were the ads being displayed there are so many probable causes it is up to you to find fix and ask for a review.

Good luck the deck is stacked against you, but I know of some that have been reinstated so there is a small percentage you might be able to have the account activated again, a very small %.

No indication whatsoever on my facebook page, i always have very low invalid click even some times there are even none at all, the only thing i can say is the flying ad i put on the site and it has since been removed.

Flying ad? Do you mean a fixed position ad (anchored to the viewport) or a popup? If you put Adsense in one of those, there's your answer. That's a violation and once you've clearly violated a published policy, well, the incentive for Google to let you back in is pretty low. Why would they let someone back in who has a demonstrated history of violating their terms of service. Apologizing for getting caught (e.g. taking down whatever you got busted for) isn't the same as suddenly being credible again. When you break the trust, what incentive does the injured party have to trust you again? This is the general pattern with accounts that get disabled for terms violations so it pays to read the terms. I'm sure accidents happen but most of the time, getting your account disabled could have been avoided by simply reading the rules. OH, and by following them as well.

Yep, a scrolling add that sticks to the page as you scroll? That would be it. Big violation.

As I said, we don't have that information here. If you can't email them anymore, your best (and probably only) bet would be to post at the Google AdSense Forums and see if you can get a top contributor to pass your info along to Google employee, but we have no participation by Google here.

Adsense doesn't typically disable accounts unless there is clear and blatant breaking of the rules or fraudulent activity. I may be wrong, but I think you know more about what you did than you are letting on.

The problem with threads like these is that it starts to create fear and anxiety with other publishers who start getting worried that they might lose their Adsense accounts for no apparent reason or reasons beyond their control, which is rarely ever the case.

FYI: See the "flying ad" statement above. That seems pretty clear and blatent.

Won't be a useless thread if someone reads it and understands one particular thing they shouldn't do with Adsense. Of course, the fact is that all one has to do is ready the Adsense policy to get the same information. Moral of the story. Read the terms and conditions, follow them and make some money or make up your own rules and accept the consequences.

I play safe. I get traffic only from organic search. Once one my site's ctr rosť to 12% for some 10-15 days. Adsense was confused and went on randomly zeroing my earnings for that site.

I promptly reduced the ad units to the CTR went below 5%.

So I think that getting traffic other than organic, adwords etc is risky if it crosses 50%.

:( i know how it feels. I got my account banned a few years ago and tried reactivating it again. But I never heard back from Google. So finally I had to use and create another Google account under someone elses SSN a route which I think you may have to take as well.

I would think that would cause tax issues.

Here are a couple threads that may be helpful:

Before anything, it's a good idea to read Google's AdSense Policies [google.com] and their Terms and Conditions [google.com].

I've been Reinstated - Adsense has let me Back in
A member recounts their experience at being removed from the AdSense program, but subesequently reinstated when she proved that she was not responsible for false clicks.
[webmasterworld.com...]

What to Do When You are Kicked Out of Adsense
A long step-by-action-step tutorial on your recourse when booted from AdSense
[webmasterworld.com...]

You violated AdSense terms regarding ad placment. The flying ad thing broke their TOS. If you read the above posts you should get a good idea of how to proceed in getting reinstated if you feel you did not break any rules. And make sure you know the rules. ;)

Good luck.
