    hi @se900se since you own an ad network , i read that adsense will add a double click verification ,that mean's even if user is interested with an ads he will have to click two times to go to the ads landing pages .
    just want to check if that's true and if this change will affect both mobile and desktop?

    also is this a double click penalty or another New update that will affect all publishers soon ?
    and when if you have the info?
    Thank You.

    There is no official info on this, at least if you search it on AdSense support pages you won't find it.
    There are verification and traffic quality checks 100%. If the site brings a lot of ad clicks but 0 conversions this raises a red flag.

    I didn't have such an issue myself, nor had any publisher (_that I worked with_) to have this issue.
    In most cases publishers using ad stack (multiple advertisers), this means that AdSense is only being shown when it wins the auction.
    This helps to minimize risks with AdSense and increase revenue for AdSense as well as all other ad networks.

    You shouldn't worry about AdSense two-click penalty but focus on the quality of your traffic.

    I'm getting a lot of pageviews but no clicks. Still around 3-4 days since I got accepted and placed the ads.

    Do I need to wait or this is what my performance will be in general?

    What factors can have effect on this?

    Thank you a lot for your time!

    The screenshot shows you do have some clicks.
    The CTR is usually below 5%, in most cases 1% or lower.
    Note, clicks = visitor leaving the site, many clicks = bad content, low CPC.

    in this last 8 months i had 5 AdSense accounts every single one of them was disabled (invalid activity, templated website..)
    i have lost over +4000$

    - i used USA and UK RDPs from hyonix for every single AdSense.

    - i used the same hosting A2hosting for the websites
    ( note: i don't know if this is relevant but no adsense account was blocked on a website hosted in namecheap, i still have an adsense account with a partner running on namecheap)

    - i did not change the content and it was not mine

    - i used the same theme MH magazine, a free theme

    - this is stats form adsense accounts that was running, the ROIs that i had normally are between 100% and 300%

    I think this sums up your problem with AdSense - you can't copy-paste someone's content.

    forgot to mention, I did change the content one time after the ad campaign was successful, a Fiverr guy did that job but the account was eventually disabled.

    Most probably the site was already noticed by then. Another thing that could've happened is that you were 'tracked' by details used one of the previously banned accounts.

    the ban reason was not because of the content policy tho, I never had this one, most of them was invalid activity, but like you said it might be because of some tracked details

    I guess it doesn't matter, what matters is the fact that you broke the rules and you were banned for that.
    If you continue doing this, you will continue wasting money and time.

    So not copying the same content will solve my issue, I highly doubt that ( i know people that were doing the same journey without problems) but i will try to do it correctly this time, thank you for your time and help

    It's a start. It's hard to compete with a multi-billion dollar company trying to scam them without getting caught. It's much easier to follow their rules and actually get paid.

    Where do you guys buy your traffic? I've been sending traffic to customer, of which some are traffic arbitragers, my team can give you some insights and help if you need on our website. Not all traffic works for Adsense, you need to blend it in with other traffic.

    While your site is interesting, the price it is a little high for what is primarily cpm monetization for most people in this type of arbitrage.
