    Yeah, I've got around 25k$ in past year from my niches, I didn't change anything last month on my sites and b00m, my google adsense account has been disabled. Never got any of three warnings, I'm simply wondering WTF, just lost around 2,5k$ >.> I'm not sure if I'm going to start with adsense again, as they just don't care about partners at all. Here's my question to BH community - what PPC network should I choice and stick with on my niches? I'm aware earnings won't be so high as at Adsense, but I need something more safer than Big G services. Any ideas? Thanks, and sorry if I choose wrong section of forums to cry over my loss ;) Regards, catchdoe.

    you can try adbrite, bidvertiser and a few other networks, but the chances are very big that your earnings drops if you don't use adsense, you can't live with it but you can't live without it...

    Any idea why they banned your account? Did they give a reason?

    Apply for a new account or else, use someone else's name for your account. Do it this way: Instead of using one adsense account on all your sites, distribute your sites on 3-4 accounts. This way, big G will not think that its just you using other people.

    That's what I would do if im in your shoes.

    Let me guess.. Autoblogs??

    it's payback time now, GOOGLE banned your Adsense account for no apparent reason. Now, you must pay them back big time. Sign up for Hubpages using 2 or 3 different id's to get new adsense accounts. Use them on autoblogs, autoresponders, duplicate or shit content filled blogs based on high paying niches.

    Let GOOGLE know how you feel about it.

    or else you can just use Adbrite:)

    Around 300 niches sites, I didn't discover anything new, it was just pain in ass to create them ;)

    Standard niche site, page with 5 subpages with articles on each of them.

    I would be happy if they did. I'm just so surprised I didn't get any warnings before this ban.

    Here comes the funny thing. I have 2 adsense accounts, registered to different cities, I was using VPN while logging on to my "test" adsense account. I was using second account to check earnings on "warez" (check out my other thread) forums - account is still working, without any warnings. They should've ban this one, instead of non-violating any rules main adsense account.

    That's what I'm going to do, but just have to cooldown, that situation really pissed me off. :)


    Here's one tip for everyone making lots of niches sites:
    If you're going to create hundreds of niches, use
    Code:
    <? include('adsense_code.php') ?>
    . Just noticed I will have to replace code on my every subpage. Stupid mistake, but I wasn't expecting being banned =O


    PS: Sorry for bad english :)

    yes that can be, they require that now. if you don't have the privacy it can be an automatic ban. might as well add the terms of service to.

    OK, were you using the standard Xfactor template/method? (green and black ugly layout with just a titty-hairs worth of text content and NO outgoing links other than adsense itself?)

    Lemme ask you this - are you still ranking for all of them? Did they get de-indexed too? You would assume if Google gave you the finger for your adsense ads, it must hate the content too.

    C'mon...you created these things JUST for adsense, right? Of course Google is going to hate your guts when it finally gives you a manual review.

    I'm building niche sites along these same lines but I'm very aware of what could happen. I've got a huge list of XFactor type of sites that I've found during my keyword research. Jesus, there is alot of these things out there. (and they rank too!) I can't see how Google would NOT want to put these on their shit list.

    I've been building "Made For Amazon" sites myself. Sure my adsense ad is front and center above the fold, but I've fleshed out everything with pictures, videos and product links, along with other links to authority sites. A 5 page website takes almost a full day to build, but I'm hoping mine are going to stick.

    Yup, started that with my first one. I've got my adbrite code ready to swap out any second.

    I've wrote a light, simply CMS for that - one MySQL table cointans one page content, everything builds up by itself.

    Of course niche is created only for adsense. Do you create them for people? :)

    You probably tripped over one of their statistical markers, or they have some adsense bot that checks or terms compliance and it found that you lack a privacy page.
