    Dear BHW members,

    I have recently started having big success with AdSense and as such I am worried not to take any wrong steps so I dont get banned.

    So I have few questions:

    I use only 2 ads on my site, one in the header and one in the footer. - Is that okay?
    I am buying traffic (before you say its stupid, AdSense allows it, unless its invalid/fake traffic [source: google out "buying traffic adsense" and first link is google support saying this]) - What is the ratio of articles/visitors I should have? How much traffic can I buy everyday without raising any red flags? Can I use double redirects, traffic => site A => site B => my site with adsense?
    Can low ctr make you banned? What ctr is best not to raise any red flags?
    If I was supposed to get banned for buying traffic, how soon would that be after buying it?
    Can traffic spikes get me banned?
    Do I have to update the site regularly?
    How does google track where the traffic comes from? If I used double redirect, would they go to the first site?
    Are there any other things I should worry about or take care of?

    Also, all the traffic I buy is valid and legit.

    Thank you so much!
    Knowle

    From private closed network, I am not going to share it because you can't get in.

    What makes you think that the traffic you buy is legit and valid?

    It's almost impossible to find really legit traffic!

    It doesn't matter how carefully you make your moves.
    Adsense will ban you whenever they like.
    Still make sure your CTR is less than 4%.

    If your traffic is real, and your site is according to adsense TOS the ctr doesn't matter. You can have it 30% and you won't get banned.

    Yes ctr does not matter stop making it a rule. But if you think that there is a point where your traffic will raise red flags then I guess you are doing something adsense does not like.

    Never ask a publisher if adsense will ban you or not. Just get on the phone and talk to them and tell them what you have in mind and be very honest. If they say no then no. If yes then yes.

    I've had up to 40% CTR, huge bounces in traffic, 100$ a day in earnings usually. Bought HQ PPC traffic. I've been paid out a few months now without being banned. My ad formats are of course following regulation. I don't double redirect my traffic to spoof referrals, either. I was thinking about it, but the sites they come from are fine. Are Google ads even able to see the visitors referral without them clicking? I'm pretty sure yes.
