    BHW what the fuck.. :(

    I was a complete idiot and failed to read every part of the adsense TOS. I am going to have to completley remove adsense from my site now..

    here is the TOS im breaking: Sites with Google ads may not include or link to:
    • Content regarding programs which compensate users for clicking ads or offers, performing searches, surfing websites or reading emails


    I'm so pissed, this was the first site i was building, trying hard with the content and it was going so well in just a month, getting multiple ad clicks a day + the odd referral for the GPT sites i'm promoting..

    Its probably risky to post your site here but Fuc* it, here it is: http://guidemakingmoneyonline.info (some of the older articles ad codes fuc*ed up and it shows the code on the page, but that don't matter now since i'll be removing them).. p.s - i know the guides i have written will seem bit retarded to you, but i'm aiming at the people who google "make money online" , "earn money fast" etc, not people with IM experience

    could any one please suggest another way to monetise this site? hopefully i can learn from this set back and find something more profitable

    It's probably a good thing this happened. With a blog like yours in the IM/Make money online niche, affiliate marketing yields so much more money if done properly, and if your content is actual of value.

    Start promoting affiliate products through guides and tutorials.

    Get an ad rotator and run your own ads.
    Have you been banned or just told to remove the ads?

    yeah thats a good idea, thanks..

    neither, i posted a question on the adsense forum with a link to one of my articles, here: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/adsense/reports-and-earnings/deobl_W4CRI
    and then the response was that i was breaking the TOS completely, .

    So google don't actually know. i don't think i'm gonna bother waiting til i can cash out to see if they will pay or not, surely im guessing they manually review all sites for their first payment?

    the thing is though, i only wanna post guides that really can make noobs money, i'm hoping i can stand out as an authority in this saturated nich by doing so and not posting the get rich quick spammy shit..

    i guess i could promote sites like wealthy affiliate , i'll have a look around for some more good legit affiliate programs

    When you make money online, do you use software to help you? Does this software have an affiliate program?

    Ask yourself that when looking around.
