    Those of you may remember me posting a while back in desperation as my ex had left me with around £20k of debt and two very young children to look after - I needed to make money and was sinking fast.

    Following that post I managed to get a JV going with another member on adsense and made £2k which was thrown straight at the debt. I honestly thought that within a couple of months me and the children would finally have our lives back after going through hell.

    Tonight Ive just hade the email from big G saying my account has been disabled and the £3k balance which was due in a weeks time will not be getting paid. Im absolutely devastated as this one month would have really sorted us out and allowed us to move back into a home of our own!!

    I feel totally dejected and dont know how Im going to explain this to the children. I know that this happens with big G but one more month would have sorted us - now I just dont know what to do as we are running out of time!!! :-(

    Write a very long message to the adsense team, be professional at all times, i've heard people can get their accounts back this way. Having said that, I'm not sure what your JV involved and how blackhat it was.

    We all go through rough patches.
    I'm up to my neck in them myself.
    But what is the motive of posting on a forum bitching about it?
    You need to be posting about making money not losing it.
    What is this a JV for your misery?
    It's in the JV section!

    The only thing you can do is pull your thumb out your backside and
    turn things around.
    Those minutes you thought about, and posted this thread could've put to
    better use doing something that will go towards making you money.

    If you were flat out caught doing blackhat, then just accept it, move on, and try something else as it'd be a waste of time arguing.

    If you were doing whitehat methods, it's worth arguing with Google. Just stay professional and logical.

    It sucks, but like oxon said, your times better spent monetizing a new method and trying to remake that money.

    Oxon Beef is right of course. On a forum or in your own head shed a tear while making your next moves fast and optimistically. No matter what happens you can't afford the
    luxury of negative thoughts. Fail more and fail more rapidly and your success is assured. ;)
    It works for our role models and it works for us.

    Stop waiting for things to happen to you.

    The JV with the other person is an example of this. How much of your time did this take up? I suspect it was basically just free money.

    What else have you done in the meantime to earn? Doing nothing and posting here when shit hits the fan is hardly going to be a sustainable method of income generating.

    Sorry for sounding so harsh, but you cannot expect to be bailed out by the goodness, ideas and efforts of the people here whenever you run into problems. Plus, as someone said, this is posted in the JV section .... what JV are you proposing.

    I think everyone here would be totally more sympathetic if you had been working on 4 different projects and if *all* of them had gone tits up.

    wrong section :p anyway the method you were doing in the JV was bh so you really shouldn't have been relaying on that money so much, its not yours until its in your bank!

    What else have you done the last few months when that JVs been running? because afaik it requires you to do nothing so you would have had other free time....

    Whilst I am sympathetic because there are allegedly children involved, I assume that the OP was in a get rich quick scenario with a certain dodgy and slightly nutty Indonesian where he was providing an Adsense account and none of the traffic.

    He got into something without investigating the risks properly, didn't have a backup plan, and got owned. Unfortunate, but if I had mouths to feed and was in a desperate situation then I would be out there busting my ass and not leaving shit to chance.

    Without knowing nor caring about the particulars I would suggest you do whatever you need to do to take care of your children.

    Get a piece of cardboard and write "Will work for food" on it; I've done that myself back in day and got work to pay bills... yeah it's humiliating and embarrassing but much better than not having electricity.

    Don't be a lazy baby and do whatever it takes to generate revenue.

    Real men do whatever it takes, wussies do not.

    Guys I totally agree with all the comments I guess I was letting of steam and looking for some help / advice?? You are right this was essetnially free money for which I had to do very little and I accepted that as it was a way of sorting out the shit the me and the children were left in (they are 100% real by the way!!!!). If Id have made payday this month we would have been able to see the light at the end of the tunnel instead this has set us right back. I haven't just been sitting back doing nothing in the meantime - Ive been holding down a full time job as well as looking after the children. In the evenings I have managed to get a couple of gigs building websites for local companies to bring in a little extra income - and have also spent around 3-4 months building an amazon review site and doing seo on that without any success.

    My goal was to earn quick money to clear the debts we were left with and give us some breathing space whilst I tried to concentrate on long term income and the bigger picture - however I feel totally deflated at the minute :-(

    Exactly 1 year ago to the day I was in £12000 (approx $19000) of debt, today I've got it down to £2500 (approx $4000), I'm paying off about £1000 per month.

    What I did? Got a night job 3 nights per week stacking shelves at my local supermarket, the rest of the time I'm slogging it online building up my sites and working for a couple of really big sites. The supermarket job covers our living expenses and the money I earn online pays off the debt.

    The beauty of the night job is that I can work online in the day, the other beauty is that I can pick up as much overtime as I can physically manage.

    It's just me and my kid and luckily she understands I have to work and that she has to stay overnight with my family while I work.

    Not only that I've got racsists neighbours who cause problems at the drop of a hat, but luckily I don't take shit and give as good as I get.

    Come January my house goes on the market and we move as soon as I can sell the place!

    What I'm saying is get a plan! Get it into your head that the plan will work and then make it work. Unless you're really lucky it won't be over night, but if I can drag my shit out of my hole, anyone can.

    Good luck OP.

    To anyone here dont rely on one source, layout the eggs on multiple baskets, thats the way to go
