    I had an adsense account that was making 300 a month, got banned, for no reason, really no reason. i even had a plugin that the ads wont be shown to the same person more then 2 impressions.

    Got a new on on my father name and never logged in from the same pc and ip that on my old one never used to log in from, also my father has a different last name so they really didnt know that his account is mine. and got banned yesterday , again they said invalid click activity and i was making 900 a month.

    What should i do?

    i think i need to give up at this point, dont have what to do with my sites and i dont want to create a third account of course to disapoint myself again.


    I cant find any other method better then adsense that interest me and i see myself doing it, tried facebook ppc and cpa offers for a while but didnt have success...

    any recommendations?!!

    Did you try contacting them on your original account asking for details as to why your account was terminated?

    If you give up.. you will never achieve anything. Finishing is harder than starting.

    Man, really does this world end with adsense?

    You're so 200's ok.

    Move on, there's bigger and better stuff. Ever heard of CPA? Much easier. Not trying to sales pitch you, but honestly adsense is not the end of the world.

    Try CPA> As long as you don't pull shady shit, you'll be fine.

    That is good. You have a failure under your belt.
    The most successful marketers are the ones who
    have failed the most times. The trick is to pick
    up the pieces and start over again.

    Never give up. Instead, change-up. Maybe try
    something different.

    Best of Luck! :)

    Ouch that gonna hurt. You are getting invalid clicks??

    When you got an account in your fathers name, did you use it on the same site? If so then there is you reason for the second ban.

    I did read somewhere that you can apply to have your Adsense account reinstated. You need a valid reason, and if it is because of invalid clicks then you need a plan of action to stop that activity.

    Failing that maybe you should consider other alternatives to Adsense. Amazon? There are many ways you can earn money in IM. Don't give up so easily!

    That is why they say, "Never put all your eggs in one basket."

    just in case one or two of them get burned.

    I second that. While you may feel like giving up, there are other ways to monetize your site. Keep trying different things until something works. If you give up now, you will never succeed. Have you tried other ad networks?

    I have not done adsense yet......

    you were making 300 $ a mo.??? I have been popped with some of my efforts as well.

    In the book "Think and Grow Rich" there is a story about a guy that digs and digs for gold. One day he has enough and says " I'm out" .....He sells his property and walks.... The new owner buys the property, and starts digging right at the same spot....... 3 feet deep he hits Gold.


    Things are changing on the internet.... adjust...... wish I had some great tip. just don't be 3 feet from gold.

    I wish you the best- in whatever you do............................

    Well you were obviously decent at either SEO or generating traffic, and if you can succeed at those with adsense, you can succeed at them with CPA, clickbank, etc.

    honest question....why would they say there was invalid click activity... does that mean you just had people you know go to your site and click the ads ?
