Ads are limited on my Adsense account: email says "invalid Traffic""

The number of ads you can show has been limited.

I have received a notification says:
The number of ads you can show has been limited. For details, go to the Policy center.


I own two websites, They didn't specify which website causes the issue, Now the Ads now limited on both of them.

I was recently trying some of the Cloudflare apps and to preview the ads on the website, Cloudflare generates a preview so we can see the new modifications live. could those kinds of logs be the problem?

99% of traffic is from search engines.
ads are not placed on 404, contact or privacy and policy pages.
Ads are not closed to clickable elements.

I am confused, Is it a bug?

It is entirely possible that your Cloudflare previews looked unusual to AdSense. Did you visit the Policy Center as suggested and see any specific information regarding the notice?

They didn't mention why. In the last month, I added a new website to the account and inserted some ads on it. but the website is not getting too much traffic. could that be an issue? I removed the ads from the new website and left only one ad unit per page in the old one. Keeping in mind that I was using only 2 ads units per page.
Let's see what gonna happen.

Was the new site approved for AdSense? It used to be that if you had an AdSense account and added a new site to the account that you could go ahead and put ads on the new site. Now every new site is supposed to be manually approved. That started about a year ago: [webmasterworld.com...]

Did you put an ads.txt file on your sites?

Yes, the new website was approved by AdSense. Both sites have ads.txt. I am really confused.
