ill try to be as brief as possible. ive been really depressed for the past couple of weeks and ill tell you why I am a young musician. Ive worked really hard on building up my brand and a strong following. I launched my blog a couple months ago and i was getting up to almost a thousand unique visitors every day. One of the music videos my band did went viral and I was also starting to get hundreds of thousands of views on my music that ive uploaded to youtube, things were going really well. I was getting thousands of new subscribers a day. To be clear, I did not use any kind of blackhat tactics whatsoever with google. Just as i was enjoying the fruits of my labor , google disabled my adsense account. I reviewed every single TOS i did not violate anything. They rejected my multiple appeals. I am gutted. Within seconds all the hard work ive put into my brand just seemed to vanish. I tried signing up for amazon associates, but honestly in my opinion the amazon system is so flawed all amazon associates program seems to be is a re-linking service where you link products for people to buy. The likelihood that they will buy something from your amazon link is negligible not to mention the time it takes for you to look up these items and fit it into the context of your website. with adsense everything is just there. the ads are constantly refreshing on their own and they are dynamic and relevant to the user. adsense shows the user ads based on their cookie history.with amazon im selling them something that 1.) they may not be interested in and 2.) that i would have to spend time searching for and making sure it fits the context of my blog post. 3.) it doesnt refresh itself and it isnt customizeable to the user With youtube there is no better video service out there that can get your content out to the masses and have them keep coming back for more (with the subscription service) I've read that you can set up a new adsense account with a business name, the problem is ive built everything around my branded content, I cant just change my branded content. I already have a following under this name. I was thinking okay maybe i can just set up a new youtube channel or a new website but still include the name of my band in it somehow, but then wouldnt google be able to detect that im associated with the banned domain? this would suck even harder if i got banned a 2nd time now im basically stuck with a rapidly growing brand that i have no way of monetizing. It makes me crazy to know i am getting all this traffic and its all wasted. Both on my website and on my youtube channel Can anyone give me some advice? What should I do? Been reallly depressed about this whole thing. I don't know what i can do to fix this mess.
