    Are Made For AdSense sites against the terms of G? I see a lot of people saying that MFA sites will get you banned from G, etc... But are these sites really against the terms of G? Or has everyone just got the wrong definition of this? If I go and manually setup a site with unique content based on keyword research, so that I could use it for G AdSense, will this be a MFA site that is against the terms of G? It's quality, it drives traffic, why should G not allow it?

    It's either me that doesn't understand something or many people are taking the wrong definition for MFA sites. I'd think that MFA sites are actually sites that are software generated. Sites that use scraped content etc...

    If the legitimate sites that are Made For AdSense are still against the G terms it looks like G in fact doesn't care about it's publishers, they are happy to take on people that have huge traffic but anyone who makes sites for money is not allowed? Any thoughts?

    MFA, from its name is understood that, the site is potentialy made for Adsense, to grab an extra ordinary number of clicks, than a normal site does!


    Adsense doesnt look for 1 Page websites, which low number of links on the page and focuses on an Adblock rather than implying importance on the content!

    It is simply not allowed! But never mind, Even I have some MFA sites which makes me good money!! Havent been caught by them yet! And I do understand its a potential risk that I am taking, by running an MFA site!

    It's only BH if you give them fraud traffic, i.e:

    1. Chinese traffic.
    2. Bot traffic.
    3. Any traffic that won't convert and you know it for a fact.

    @IamNRE, What car is that? The one in your avatar? :p

    lol, it's made for adsense, it's in the title of the thread and in the thread...

    So I would understand that as long as you provide quality and real traffic you are theoretically allowed to have as many sites as you can handle without G giving you the ban hammer?

    MFA is no way allowed even when you have top notch organic traffic to your site!

    They will be simply categorized to 'Pages made specially for Adsense' and you will simply be kicked out!

    So what's the difference between a site with adsense banners and a MFA one?

    Is it a crime to optimize the template, increase the CTR and make Google more money?

    Imo if you provide good content, play by the rules and as long as advertisers are happy, Google won't ban your ass. As a safety measure, would be good to have more than one account and make 50 here, 30 there, so in case you get kicked out, it's not that bad.

    You pulled that out of your ass and I'm allergic to BS.

    I'm not even going to argue with you. Idiots take you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Wait, but there must be some loophole... If you grow a micro niche site into something big and powerful, they can't really do anything, can they? I'm not talking about MFA sites that are three or four page static web pages... I'm thinking more towards a whole site about a certain topic that would be constantly updated as long as there would be new information to add in on top of that... but then again that wouldn't be classified as a MFA now, would it?

    lol that was hard... quite funny too...

    If you have maintain a website with laser targetted content, which is updated often, and has a killer adplacement, I wont call it MFA!!

    MFA are usually sites with few pages, with all attraction towards the adblock! :)

    Well, Shadedream, I am no master of Adsense. I just added my knowledge to your thread, You can trash it, or you can add it to your knowledge!

    Imo that rule applies when you publish pages with basically nothing but ads. And that's blatant.

    But if you have good or even decent content that at least provide some value, you don't have a one-page site with xfactor's infamous template but lots of articles that cover as many aspects as possible of the subject you built your site around, then you Google, prove that my pages are published specifically for the purpose of showing ads.

    It's your word against theirs. Yes, they don't give a shit about you and they will ban you in no time, if necessary.

    But why would they, if you are making them money and nobody is complaining?

    Imo the "no MFA sites allowed" policy is just a way to reassure advertisers that their ads will be displayed on "quality" sites.

    Google is in for the money, not to provide the best content ever to contextual ads.


    The question is: what can I do to "make my site less MFA looking" and still have a good CTR?

    - quality content (i don't think it has to be sublime, just decent; if you paid an indian to write it and it has no articles -"a", "the", etc- that's not quality)
    - custom header with a nice logo

    What else?

    I'd say that if necessary a less performing CTR is better than a banned account. So, don't get greedy and build more sites.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/18558-businessbira.html - Here, as he said MFA, i referred it to a static site with few pages! :)

    You can understand that from the last post! :)
