    Hey BHW Fellows,

    Iam under a bit of trouble here, I have started some tech blogs lately related to programming. They are for various programming skills like php, C# , Java etc.

    Pure white hat, no auto blogging Stuff.

    One of them has PR 2 as well.

    Suddenly one day I got a mail from Ad sense team that my site is not in compliance with Ad sense program and my account got blocked. I opened a new account with them with another domain but it got blocked as well.

    I guess that was since my sites , all 10 blogs were on a shared hosting with same IP. Any ideas why it happened to me second time?

    I tried adbrite, bidadvertiser but in vain, Am hardly making cents :(

    Can you please give some ideas , How do I monetise technical blogs , I write posts almost twice a week and I want to keep them completely whitehat.

    Please suggest :eek:

    Try chitika. it is the next best thing after adsense. It works good with search engine traffic.

    Try selling adspace on your page, or maybe try selling some products related to your blog from clickbank.

    If your sites were OK, you shouldn't apply for the 2nd account. They usually check your site and reopen your account if it's OK. They've got some scripts that automatically ban based on certain conditions (I have a forum, and one of the users posted a message, something like "please click my link and click my ads" - google banned it, but we explained that it was spam posted on our site that suggested to click ads, but not on our site - they reopened our adsense account).

    Well, go for CPA or try to sell some ad-space, you know there are those 125x125 ads.
