One thing for sure i.e. If you are clicking your own adds then Google with detect it for sure. There is really no way to trick Google. I still believe in "Don't be evil" moto. What I know is that the money is credited back to advertiser,s account i.e. Google does not profits from such actions. If it was really evil then the better alternative will be to continue such accounts and make more money. (Officially, Google makes money only from valid clicks and impressions. Therefore there is no point in banning such accounts if Google had evil intentions) The recent flood of emails might be due to: * You getting popular and thus more people asking for help. * The panda and penguin updates must also be taken into consideration. You mentioned year 2012 and this matches with the release of those updates. As per my personal opinion I am discarding the existence of any such scam.

Leave it to +Lisa Irby to give us some breaking news about AdSense and what might be going on behind the scenes.  They recently asked me to take a survey and one of the questions is what would I like to see them to do make the program better and my response was that we should have more information about the TOS. They should created a video to explain each of the terms showing examples of how people can get banned. I got a feeling we won't see a video from them on this topic! Thanks +Lisa Irby  btw - cute haircut :)

I believe it! I would love to see an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission. I wouldn't be shocked to see Google Adsense featured on an episode of CNBC's American Greed! This has been a bad week for side pieces [Donald Sterling & V. Stiviano] and pissed off former Google employees blowing the lid off what happens behind closed doors. Even if the language of the article may be suspected of an Adsense publisher, it certainly raised some eyebrows and got people talking! Yep, I'm gonna set my DVR cuz this could be an episode of #AmericanGreed ! Use the little man and feed him crumbs while the higher ups eat the whole cake, hog and all the good stuff. Yep. I believe it!

Thank you for keeping it real on this subject. I have recently suffered their wrath and the way they handle things is disgusting. They send you an email accusing you of a violation but then in the same breath saying that it could have been caused by someone else. I'm damn sure they have the capability to see who has done what, but yet some how the publisher is supposed to be responsible for internet trolls or other unsavory characters doing invalid clicks etc on your ads. It almost seems to me that it is some kind of underhanded censorship tactic. I regret I ever signed up with them. It is one thing to be accused of something that you have actually done wrong, I could live with that, but quite another being shot down on vague accusations with no concrete facts of the alleged errors or ways to resolve them makes Google's BS talk about transparency just that, BS!

I just got my account banned last night, halfway through drawing my new comic. The biggest issue I have is that Google won't tell me what the issue is. They never warned me that there was something awry. I just got an email... Saying I'm banned. So I respond with my appeal. Asking for some info that I might be able to look into. They replied "sorry, your account is now disabled"... And that's that apparently. Now I have no idea what the issue is. Am I being click bombed by a rival artist? Am I being click bombed by a friend trying to hook me up, and not understanding the repercussions? I have no clue. All I know is, I draw all day... I am getting a decent sized fan base. I am working hard. And I damn sure don't have time to sit around clicking my own ads. I am lost now. And what's worse is... Without any info... How am I supposed to get another advertiser? Will it happen with them too due to a malicious click bomber? Do I need to put out a message to fans? I don't know... I feel like I've been sucker punched. And I don't even know who I'm fighting.

once your account is banned, can you get it back and how do you get it back.

It doesn't make sense that a billion dollar company would not have a support system for their main source of revenue. I don't know the percentage, but I believe that advertising makes up the majority of Google's profit. The most ridiculous thing is that they don't explain why your account is banned. Happened to me, true story.
