    Here is the email I got.
    Code:
    [FONT=arial]Hello,[/FONT]
    
    [FONT=arial]We continually review all publishers according to our program policies ( [/FONT][URL]https://www.google.com/support/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=48182&stc=aspe-3pp-en[/URL][FONT=arial] ) and Terms and Conditions ([/FONT][URL]https://www.google.com/adsense/localized-terms?&stc=aspe-3tc-en[/URL][FONT=arial] ). During a recent review of your account, our specialists found that it was not in compliance with our policies.[/FONT]
    
    [FONT=arial]WEBMASTER GUIDELINES: Publishers may not place Google ads on pages that violate Google's webmaster quality guidelines ([/FONT][URL]http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=35769#quality[/URL][FONT=arial]). While we've included the following excerpts from these guidelines, we recommend that you take the time to review them in their entirety.[/FONT]
    
    [FONT=arial]* Make pages for users, not for search engines.[/FONT]
    [FONT=arial]* Don't employ cloaking or sneaky redirects.[/FONT]
    [FONT=arial]* Don't load pages with irrelevant words.[/FONT]
    [FONT=arial]* Don't create multiple pages, subdomains, or domains with substantially duplicate content.[/FONT]
    [FONT=arial]* Don't participate in link schemes designed to increase your site's ranking or PageRank.[/FONT]
    [FONT=arial]* Avoid "doorway" pages created just for search engines, or other "cookie cutter" approaches such as affiliate programs with little or no original content.[/FONT]
    [FONT=arial]* Avoid tricks intended to improve search engine rankings. A good rule of thumb is whether you'd feel comfortable explaining what you've done to a website that competes with you. Another useful test is to ask, "Does this help my users? Would I do this if search engines didn't exist?"[/FONT]
    [FONT=arial]* If your site participates in an affiliate program, make sure that your site adds value. Provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site first.[/FONT]
    
    [FONT=arial]As a result, your AdSense account has been disabled.[/FONT]
    
    
    
    [FONT=arial]Additionally, as stated in our Terms and Conditions, publishers who have breached this agreement may not receive further payment. The earnings on your account will be returned to the affected advertisers. Please note that this step was taken in an effort to protect the interests of our AdWords advertisers, and to maintain the quality of the AdSense program.[/FONT]
    
    [FONT=arial]Thank you for your understanding.[/FONT]
    
    [FONT=arial]Sincerely,[/FONT]
    
    [FONT=arial]The Google AdSense Team[/FONT]



    * Make pages for users, not for search engines. <----- This is the only thing I am guilty of. Too much SEO will now ban your adsense account?

    * Don't create multiple pages, subdomains, or domains with substantially duplicate content.

    This is the first time anyone has mentioned receiving such a mail.
    Also, it seems like that the specialists at google have forgotten to check ehow.com
    as that site violates almost all the points mentioned above.

    What do you think caused the ban? Keyword density too high?

    Obviously, they ignore it. Perhaps maybe there is something going on behind between G and Demand Media...who knows.

    They're both legit gaming sites. One is simply a forum for a popular game. The other site is a blog that was my gem, I've put lots of work into it.
    It's been at least 1.5 years since I've done anything blackhat (SEO wise) such as buy links. The forum (being a forum) has all unique content, and the blog is 90% unique, all articles written by me.

    Well done. :)

    Hope you find better ways to monetize your sites than badsense and yeah there is life beyond GWT, Gmail and GA.

    Good luck

    Thanks. I mostly do CPA / Content locking. Never tried to make any real money with Adsense.
