At the height of Adsense, this forum (and everywhere on the net) has been bombarded with "Adsense banned my account for no reason". Whether this is true or the owner failing to accept that somewhere he broke the TOS, it's evident that the veterans usually recommend it only as a start up to fund for future projects while eventually moving on to CPA's and such. But it's hard to leave Adsense! Especially when you found the right theme, right ad blocks, right blending, right niche it can make your life so much better. I for one am growing my PPC earnings by almost 75% every month since my site recovered from a penalty on December. It just feels like I could use Adsense forever... But how long is FOREVER with Adsense? The more my monthly earnings keep on raising the more afraid I am to "put it all in one basket" How about you? How long have you been using Adsense? If not, how long did it take for you to get banned by them? I would really love to get some tips on how to keep my account in good standing. As of now, I am just using the techniques used by the big dogs on my niche and it has been going great. One thing I noticed though, since the news that the G's annual income went down a couple of percent last year and at that same time implementing the ARROWS on contextual ads, I've seen a great reduction of threads being opened on "why my account got banned" are they finally realizing that majority of their income comes from mom & pops site? (duh). Feed me your knowledge!
