Adsense/Arbitrage: Ok for big players but Adsense bans smaller ones

    Hi,

    I've done some consulting for a few months for a big arbitrager in the US. I helped him improve his margins and find new ways to monetize his traffic, but I've also learned most of his secrets. He is ok with that because I won't be a treat for him as he spends near 7 figures per month in advertising.
    I want to try this for myself and I'm sure to succeed, but my only concern is Adsense. I've read some horror stories here and there. They seem to take it easy with those big players, but when some newbies try to do some arbitrage they ban their accounts.
    My question is, is there any way to do arbitrage by starting low without getting the ban hammer?
    Any feedback about this situation will be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    This is correct. Back in 2012 when i was doing 1k daily with adsense and they banned me after manual review because of ad placing called ad mimicking, ads looks like search result content. However they still never ban big players. For example many of ads in adwords after google search just redirects to other search engines search results with ad mimicking. Plenty of them. Thats sucks.

    You can try old AdSense accounts to see how it pans out

    Do everything like a company

    I am not sure what are you asking?
    AdSense has no issues with arbitraging as long as your site and what you do is up to AdSense ToS.
    But AdSense is not the main network for 'big guys', so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Yes, you can use other ad networks or header bidding and have a better CPM but the problem is if you are driving paid traffic you want to optimize your campaigns granularly. Meaning, you want to know how much each campaign is generating and adjust your CPC (at the campaign or publisher level) to make it profitable. The only way to do this is by linking Adsense and Analytics. You can't do this with any other ad network as you won't have the correct earning data that you can cross with your campaign's performance in order to optimize. If you have another ways to proceed I'll take it.

    i was actually doing this for a few months until i got greedy and tried to scale over 1k, almost double the previous month. in the end adsense banned my account. so the main point is you can get under the radar below 1k.

    To use DFP you need to have AdSense, and to have AdSense you need a website.

    To sell traffic without is easy - you sell ad management services, e.g. manage FB ad campaign or campaign at any ad network.

    You can also be a traffic broker, where you don’t own anything, just connect and manage supply and demand side.

    Thanks, I think I am looking at traffic brokerage. I have traffic but can't find a good platform where they accept traffic without a site. Does this mean I need to sell to general public then or are there good paying platforms that accept brokering
