    Ok so I have my existing adsense account which I use for legit sites that I have created, but I am deciding to start doing stuff and creating more websites, mainly blogs, that will have adsense on them.

    The problem is I definitely do not want to get banned for having "Made For Adsense" sites. The question is what does it take to ensure that my site has enough quality content to be deemed not "Made for Adsense"?

    The original plan outlined for there to be a lot of adsense on the blog, 3 Ad Units and 1 Link Unit. I have already made my own Blogger.com layout so that I can place the ads where I want and still have the posts as the centerpiece, but at the moment on the blog there really is nothing else. There is just the Blog Archive at the bottom, my post in the middle, and then adsense.

    Is say posting a new post every week enough, or should I change my layout? What do you guys think?

    I was really gung-ho about getting this out there until I started reading about google banning "Made for Adsense" sites. Thats what I get for reading...

    And by the way this is what I find on Google's policies about this subject.

    Webmaster Guidlines
    • Create a useful, information-rich site and write pages that clearly and accurately describe your content.
    Google ads, search boxes or search results may not be:
    • Placed on pages published specifically for the purpose of showing ads.

    The made for adsense violations are up to the discretion of Google, so just take someone else's perspective on your site, and see if they think the site looks like it was "made for adsense". Basically , if you think that you could get banned for that violation, you probably will.

    Just use common sense. If your content to ads ratio is outta wack then its pretty easy to say you just put up content for the purpose of getting them to click on ads.

    On the other hand if you put up lots of quality content with related keywords along with maybe an adblock or two blended in then it doesn't look so bad.

    I know a few people (from who one even lost ?16.000+) who got a MFA ban. All of them were caused by the following mistake.
    - Having a blog or journal in which they can find info they can easily pull out of their database. E.g. exact monthly incomes, CPC ratios, Domain Names etc... In all cases they could make a connection between different sites from the same owner or different adsense accounts.

    I am btw talking about sites in a European language (Dutch). Although we have the highest amount of websites per citizen, being a smaller country makes it a lot easier for google to check their adsense accounts. Besides of that, all people I am talking about had a popular blog on topics such as Adsense or SEO (they were promoting MFA) and they'll probably check by on those sites more often.

    As I have known, Google doesn't easily banned those what you call "Made For Adsense" sites/blogs. I also have some of those "Made For Adsense" blogs, worst is, there's 6 Google ads on it! hahaha! lol. But so far, I'm not banned yet. Good thing for you that you update your site every week, because me, there are some weeks that I haven't update my sites. It even take months for me to update.

    Google is strict when it comes to the way there ads are shown in your site. Just take this advice, DO NOT TAKE OUT the "ADS BY GOOGLE" word in their ads or don't try to edit it. Also, do not try to put some words where you tell you visitors to "CLICK HERE" and pointing to those ads.
