May 4th 2018, I received the message

Ads are disabled on one or more of your sites - no ads are serving on one or more of your sites because of policy violations. Please investigate the reasons for this in the Policy Center.

Site status: Disabled ad serving due to site-level violations

What you should do
Resolve site violations to restore ad serving on your policy-compliant pages. Note: You can request reviews of the individual pages or sections, however, ad serving will remain disabled across the whole site until the site violations are resolved.

At how to fix, there is an option 2

Option 2
Stop ad serving requests

Auto ads: Create a new URL group, select or add the page on which you want to stop serving ads, and leave all of the ad formats unselected. Within 7-10 days the page will disappear from the Policy center. Do not request a review.

Ad units: Remove all Google ad code from this page and wait. Within 7-10 days the page will disappear from the Policy center. Do not request a review.

The page was part of the folder "sitemap", where I have different indexes about the site.
So I removed ads from all folders "sitemap" from all my domains,

May 16th, I discovered, that I have overseen the code for page level ads for mobile phones. So I removed also this.
Now it's 13 days after I removed all ads, much more than the stated 7 - 10 days.

Any experience with this?

Site level violation is not a little violation. so it's not surprising that it can't be simply reverted quickly.

I worked once with a company, which had a similar violation, and once fixed, it took 2 months, before the site was accepted again to display Adsense. Also, it was 5 years ago, at a time where Adsense was more reactive than nowdays ...

There is one page listed for the violation. It's an index of own content from the same site.
This page exists since 2005.

I expected as an answer some experiences, not a "I heard from somebody" from a newbie.

I didn't said I heard it from, I said I worked for a company, where we had this problem. My sincere apologized for having tried to help. And it's not because I created an account some days ago, that I mean I am newbie. Dumb stereotypes.

What is the actual violation if you don't mind me asking?

Reviews shouldn't take more than 3-4 days. However....

1. A site violation is nothing to f with. Instead of trying to find a workaround, make sure to follow the policy guidelines and get your account reinstated.
2. Do not create new pages in hope that they won't be noticed. You have a site-wide violation, that won't help.
3. It took 12 days for you to fix the issue, and G hasn't replied for 13. Give it a sec. Otherwise, shoot them an email if it's available for your account (Support options)

I would suggest just fixing the issue and request a review (in spite of what google says).
Also,

"I expected as an answer some experiences, not a "I heard from somebody" from a newbie."


I would have expected more from a WebmasterWorld Senior Member than being condescending and ungrateful. People are trying to help you here.

I pleased for a review, because it takes so long until it disappears from the policy center.

Just got an email from AdSense some hours ago, now ads are shown again.
