    I just received this in my Google Webmasters account.

    Could i earn myself a ban like this? Ive been making autoblogs the past month or so and this particular site was one of them. I have crossed the payment threshold too and dont want to lose the money. As a precautionary i have stopped Feedpress from syndicating posts to the site. I think this might mean that the site has been de-indenxed?

    Lastly, ive done a site:url search in google and it still shows some results.

    I think you were lucky to get a shot across the bows. Usually it's just a Google happy slap and goodnight Irene.

    You will most likely loose your adsense account if you continue.

    Is your site still appearing in the G search engine for your targeted keywords? Usualy when G sends a warning like this you are off the serp and they are waiting for you to make all the required correction and re-submit it for reconsideration (which will be made manual).

    Wow, Google actually took the time to send you an email rather than bitch slapping you? Your Adsense clicks must convert pretty well for advertisers or something. I would do what ever they say if those sites are making you any money.

    At this stage the message is limited to one specific domain, but I have all the others under the same webmasters account and with the same adsense account :eek: Adsense has been removed from the offending site but not the others thus far

    Typically, you get that message after already being slapped in the results. Usually not a big deal though.

    After all, it can be seen at first glance. It's normal marketing exercise to promote Adwords.

    If you have adsense on your site, remove it ASAP.

    Then, make the necessary changes and submit it to Google for reconsideration.

    You will hear back from them within a week.
