    the biggest mistake is opening my old accounts in trashy rdp's and I got suspended on all of them
    2nd one is not adding one signal to 1 app that luckily got lot of installs but I didn't get any revenue from it

    IT DOESNT WORK LIKE THAT
    SO if u change the whole admob acc u will face no problem as someone who sold their app and got AdMob changed to the new one
    but if you changed only app id with the same admob u will make no difference

    Pending : 0
    Published : 0
    Suspended : 5
    Accounts Suspended: 5
    Earnings : 0.00$

    I don't know the reason yet but i think its the Keystore that links my machine to old accounts.
    trying a new way of opening accs .

    Goodluck, I have a couple of questions

    Why are your accounts being banned? Are you using black hat monetization method? If so, what kind of methods or where could I read up on them?

    Also you mentioned you will do guides and pranks, are these guides for popular Apps like 'Clash of Clans guide' with games you find low competition for? Or other types of guides?

    How well do prank apps perform? It seems like a really small niche like 'phone call prank' and 'broken screen prank' will all have a lot of competition?

    Finally, what do you think of quiz and trivia apps, could they do well?

    UPDATE 2
    So after I got my accounts suspended, I tried to find the max reasons to suspend an account ( many cases: before publishing / after publishing ..etc )
    1 - Graphics
    A - metadata and EXIF ( using PNG always and when exporting I don't check the info box in PS )
    B - Google images detection ( spam character or trademark or blacklisted niches )

    2 - Code
    A - Changing Classes + activities names
    B - Keystore and PC data
    C - Repetitive content

    3 - Account Machine + IP
    A - Machine setup
    B - Using Fresh IP / network

    WHAT IM GOING TO DO NOW?

    - Setup New machines / Install random programs / random fonts / setup timing and language to match the IP
    - #TEST1: Publish empty App ( no ads or spam related content )
    - #TEST2: Modify in all code every APK generated ( still a spam app with my Admob in it ) and re-sign it via APK signer tool
    - Setup new graphics to all niches ( i used to add some light to the pic and publish :p no worries lol

    Why are your accounts being banned? Are you using blackhat monetization method? If so, what kind of methods or where could I read up on them?
    - Accs got suspended for many reasons i think, and No I didn't publish any blackhat things on last apps / ads outside the app + CPA aggressive offers
    Also, you mentioned you will do guides and pranks, are these guides for popular Apps like 'Clash of Clans guide' with games you find low competition for? Or other types of guides?
    - Trending , NOT POPULAR
    How well do prank apps perform? It seems like a really small niche like 'phone call prank' and 'broken screen prank' will all have a lot of competition?
    the meaning of prank here is not the real definition of prank, exemple : clash of clans coins generator
    Finally, what do you think of quiz and trivia apps, could they do well?
    i had a good experience with quizzes in 2017 and they still work now if you are welling to invest some good bucks in it

    as i said early, if the payment method can change in your own admob in your country that means you can buy an account and change info : good to go
    where : search on facebook something like : adsense COUNTRYNAME or admob COUNTRY NAME
    you will find them there or try ebay if u live in UK / US ..
