    I'm thinking about making some more blogger blogs that will be really niche specific that will be solving a need of mine and will not have much content on them like basically 1 or 2 articles with a couple pictures. Now I heard people say Adsense can ban your account for having a low quantity of content but is this really true? and if so would me doing this on a Blogger blog help anything as far as being banned, being it is a google platform?

    I have had a couple blogger blogs with like no content for 1.5 years and had no problem with adsense on them, but wanted to know from any experts.

    Ban means you're gone, forever. They can also place a hold on your AdSense account where you aren't banned, but you need to make numerous appeals to win back their favor.

    In terms of holds, yes, you can. I have. But its really case by case, and Google will never provide you enough information on why. Essentially, they'll close up your adsense shop for "no reason". Chances are in this case, your sites would not have enough content attractive to their advertisers to make it worthwhile to show their ads.

    I really don't think you could get banned for lacking content, just held-up. At least, as long as said content follows their other policies.

    They are not strict like that, of course we all (most) make pages for adsense money. It's only about respecting their rules on content, not argue or take liberties with those. Also the only limit to your adsense earnings is how much traffic you can get to your pages with ads.

    right so as long as im following all the other rules, a blog with a small amount of content should be fine?

    btw when I said ban I know that means Adsense as a whole not just blogger stuff

    I don't know for sure. Google never said (they generally don't).

    Another advertiser I jumped ship to also stopped, but said it was due to being content light. I can only guess that was Google's reason too, as I was not in violation of anything else.

    I never got it back for that site, second advertiser said I would need a larger site. The site itself wasn't meant to be that way, so I moved on.

    Not yet. I'm on my third appeal, they still have not communicated why.
