    Did you really expect Google and Matt Cutts to say "OH YEAH ITS TRUE, WE WERE RIPPING OFF OUR PUBLISHERS".

    I totally believe it, I am one of the guys that have been banned from Adsense and I am pretty sure that I was following all the rules, was very cautious about this because in that time it was my main source of income.

    The ban was without a reason, even when I filed a dispute the response was not from a person but it was just an automatic standard email.

    The ban occurred two days before the end of the month and I lost more then 2.8k Euros.

    I plan to build a few adsense websites and I really hope this is not true. Adsense seems to be the most profitable way to make money with seo. At least I hope that if some of this is true then after this information hit the Internet they will stop f**king with small websites.

    So they just banned you without any actual reason or proof?

    This seems odd to me, because if you were making 2.8K a month to them, they would have benefited more from you by just shaving your earnings then just banning you.

    A few years ago, forums everywhere were ablaze with reports of AdSense bans in which Google refused to give a reason. The whole bit of banning accounts right before payday has been well-flamed, as well.

    Then it all suddenly died down.

    Overall, I'd say that the "leak" simply restates what has been all over the internet, only with a more official tone and including specific numbers. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the leaker's claims are 100% true.

    Just because of what I'd read on this forum and others when G's banning spree was the talk of the internet, I wouldn't rely on AdSense for any kind of big money. If a site of mine with AdSense on it really started raking in the cash, I'd rip those links down and put up affiliate ones instead. There's more money in commissions, and if you deal with a legit merchant, a good chance of actually seeing the payouts.

    This changes nothing though. We all knew about this, and now official statement about it has come.

    Where is the source? I don't see any links or documentation to make this a legitimate claim.

    I don't think there's a source since it was posted on pastebin.

    Guaranteed W130SN could somehow track this guy down in 2 hours if he wanted to...

    And find out that he's had 3 banned BHW accounts.

    It would not surprise me at all if a class action lawsuit gets filed soon. Think of all the publishers that got a ban, with no reason listed at all. Yes, Google has that right, as it is their platform, and they create all the rules. But, money grubbing attorneys also have the right to go after companies that have unfair business practices. It will be interesting when you see some commercials on daytime TV, looking for Adsense publishers that were banned unfairly. They will run them right next to the Mesothelioma and Vaginal Mesh commercials.

    Articles like this would not get any traction, if there were not so many reports of people getting banned for no reason. Google and their shareholders deserve what they have coming. They should have a transparent platform, with a real support department than answers emails. They should work with publishers, and come up with a better system on "violations".

    Matt Cutts is Google's spin doctor, he's their politician. Don't believe a thing that man says, at a basic level... Google make money from Adwords, why would they allow a top level employee give public tips on how to get to the top organically?

    Regardless... whether this is BS or not... do you really believe that Google and anyone associated with it is going to come out and say "Holy crap, this is real! You better believe this, we're screwed!"
