    I got many friends who are using adsense as their main revenue for their websites but out of no where most of them got banned for no reason at all. Some of them got banned for invalid clicks which is not their fault at all. Some of my friends also got banned because their website is posing risk for the advertisers? ... So far I also have a friend who has an adsense account banned after 8 years. Adsense is still banning people everyday for no reason at all, it is too strict. Seriously adsense is not a lifelong income.

    Amazon? I have read a lot of horrors stories all around that amazon banned for high earners? is that true? and the commission for the products is too low way 8.5%? ..Amazon too ban affiliates for almost no reason but the ban rate of amazon is not so high compare to adsense.

    All in all, if you want to earn a lifelong income either create your own membership website or put company ads, or join media.net. What are you opinion?

    I have been making a living off of Amazon for about 2 years now.

    They don't ban for no reason, and they won't ban you if your conversion rate is too high. They will however ban you if you are sending shady traffic, sending traffic from a website you have not put in the account settings, or if the traffic has a huge refund rate or fraudulent purchases.

    Why would Amazon ban accounts who earned much! Except those leads are the majority of refund/fraud. As the goods ship, Amazon received commission, Seller get paid and No refund or fraud, all parties are good to go.
    I agree with Adsense is not a reliable choice of main income.

    I heard that Microsoft or one of their branch companies has something close to adsense, and the rate is higher. I would say go with that Forget adsense. I dont mind the commission rate o amazon as long as im getting good buys.

    Amazon wont ban unless you do something shady.
    Adsense will ban at anytime, sometimes for no particular reason.

    I have never considered adsense as an option. You can simply get advertisers on your page which can get you more money if traffic is segmented. You can put your own cpas, which could potentially earn more. You can focus on gathering email subscritions and you will earn a lot more this way.

    Honestly, adsense is the last resource which should ever be used. Only use adsense if you have a MASSIVE diversification on your traffic and you have no chance of segmenting it.

    I got clients with 10 years of AdSense(since day 1 basically) no bans.

    Got Amazon affiliates since 1999 or 2000, no bans, basically they've been making $ for 14 years.

    You only get banned if you screw up. It's simple.

    They don't ban you without a reason, the only thing being, people sometimes get too obsessed with getting clicks or some sales. If you play by the rules and trick them in no way, you will always remain safe.

    AdSense is like a crutch. The more you rely on it, the harder it will be to recover when it's taken away.

    Thread is in the wrong section....

    They don't ban for "no reason".

    People who don't want to admit they made a mistake say this.
