    I received this email just hours ago from the google adsense team;



    Im not sure why my account was disabled,I built original content. I would only spam press releases online that had my url.
    I can't think of any other reason why google would not like my site as its filled with content for the user...

    Anybody else experience a ban from Adsense recently after being with them for a long long time?

    How much you are earning per month? and how many checks have been dispatched so far in the 7 years?

    I have to ask.....have you kept up with the Adsense changes over the years, or did you set up your site and kept the same format these past 7 years? Google does not have a grandfather clause....they expect you to keep up with the changes on a monthly basis. Sounds like you finally got a manual review and because you do have a decent site...you account has been disabled instead of canceled.....count yourself lucky, most don't get a second chance.

    Did your site had a privacy policy, a contact us page, 10+ pages of content & ctr less than 5?

    if anyone of these is no, then that MAY be a trigger

    Wow, one of my sites only has 1 of those things (contact page) and my Adsense for that site has been in great standing for about a year now.

    The odds that you will get a second chance are zero to none... Good luck, but I think you will make some changes hoping there the right ones, but you'll never know and you'll never get an answer from them.

    Mine got "disabled" after 6 years, and has been disabled for 8 months now... Used to make $1500 a month from them... I think Google does this from time to time to keep people on edge. If they disable accounts randomly they keep everyone on edge and make everyone jump every time Big G sneezes...

    Good luck though.

    Nope. It's a blog based on tumblr and they always seem to approve them within a few hours no matter what.

    Wow that's risky lol. But it depends how much you're making each month. The more you're making, the higher chance of them looking at you. If you're making a lot, now is probably a good time to add those in lol, especially the privacy policy page.

    And another thing weird about tumblr, I was doing a test one time to see how strict Adsense actually is, I clicked on my OWN ads every day with the SAME proxies and ip addresses and I had 80%-90% ctr for about a month before they started counting only some clicks as invalid. I was shocked. The whole account was fake and I obviously didn't put a bank account or anything to get the money because I don't want to steal from advertisers, but maybe there is an exploit with tumblr. After about 2 months they finally banned it. Crazy

    Google tends to check for this stuff usually right before they issue a monthly payment. Perhaps they didn't check because a payment was never issued due to no bank account entered.

    They dont ban instant but instead they tend to wait and learn what your trying to do so they can pretend further fraud

    I agree. I didn't make any significant money until I made adsense my tertiary source of online income.

    That was your game plan? Solely spamming press releases?

    Think about it... does that L00K natural?

    Or, did you have other forms of BLs and Social Signals?

    GA can be jerks but typically, something sets of their alarms.

    I think the spammy press releases may have triggered a review:
    Code:
    Creating links that weren?t editorially placed or  vouched for by the site?s owner on a page, otherwise known as unnatural  links, can be considered a violation of our guidelines. Here are a few  common examples of unnatural links that violate our guidelines:
    
     
    [LIST]
    [*]Links with optimized anchor text in articles or press releases distributed on other sites. For example:
            [I]There are many [URL="http://www.example.com"]wedding rings[/URL] on the market. If you want to have a [URL="http://www.example.com"]wedding[/URL], you will have to pick the [URL="http://www.example.com"]best ring[/URL]. You will also need to [URL="http://www.example.com"]buy flowers[/URL] and a [URL="http://www.example.com"]wedding dress[/URL].[/I] 
    [/LIST]
