As most of you might know by now I dedicate a lot of my free time to help people online. The most common things i do is to provide guidance to how to advance with their online business and how to make money with it. I also teach different ways to make money online, how to do SEO and more. However there is some questions that keep finding their way to me over and over again. One question that I get a lot is from people who have been banned from Google AdSense. So to save me and you some time I thought that I would quickly write an article about this, since then I could just update one source and then send all the sad people here instead of wasting hours explaining the same thing all the time.So here you have it, a list of things that you should NOT do if you are planning on making money with Google AdSense. These are some common mistakes that a lot of newbies and black-hatters do before they come crying for their AdSense account to be unbanned.

1. Clicking on your own AdSense Ads : If you didn’t know that you were not allowed to click your own ads to make money from AdSense, then I’m not sure how far down the AdSense terms you read. It’s quite obvious that the advertisers don’t want people clicking their ads just to make money from them, they want people who are genuinely interested in their ads to click them. Every click is a potential sale for them. If you have clicked your ads, then never do it again, if you’re lucky you won’t get banned, for now. One click will most likely not get you banned, but if you’ve repeatedly mis-clicked on your ads or in some other way clicked on them, then I would advice you to send in an email to the AdSense team stating your mistake. Note that you might lose your earned money, but if you’re lucky you will get to keep your account in return.

2. Asking others to click on your AdSense ads : This is almost the same as the previous mistake that people do when trying to make money from AdSense. You are not allowed to put up a text on your website saying “Click these ads because _____”. Even if you promise to send all the money you earn to helpless people in third-world counties you will still get banned. You are not even allowed to ask your best friend or your grandma to click your ads. It might be tempting sometimes, I mean, who would notice, right? Just remember that for every fraudulent click, the AdSense network might lose another advertiser. And without the advertisers paying money, how are you going to make any?

3. Having a script/software clicking your ads : So, you can’t click on your own ads and you can’t ask anyone to click on them for you. But does that mean you can’t make a computer click on them? Yes, it does. You are not allowed to use any automatic or semi-automatic way to automate clicks on your AdSense ads. Do I need to tell you why?

4. Using autoblogs (Damn lazy webmasters..) : So Autoblogs have become a really big business online. Just imagine having a website where you get new content published daily, automatically, without you lifting a finger. Sounds a bit too good to be true? Well it is, at least if you’re using AdSense or if you’re afraid of getting reported for breaking the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act). AdSense is not allowed to be on automated websites, especially if the content is not legally yours or if you don’t have permission from the creator to use it.

5. Changing the AdSense script code : You are not allowed to change the AdSense code manually. You are only allowed to do it though your AdSense interface while logged in to your AdSense account. Some people might want to change certain elements in the code so that it fits their website better or similar, but having unique AdSense ads is only a privilege of the pro-users of AdSense. To become a pro users you need to have huge amounts of traffic to your websites and a good click-through rate on your ads.

6. Masking parts of your AdSense ads : This can be done either by using images, HTML or other ways, such as changing the AdSense code. For example, some of you might not want to show the “Ads by Google” in the bottom right corner of your ads. So you cover it up by either changing the height of the ad by messing with the script code, or you might place an image on your website overlapping that part. Well, it’s not a good idea since it will get you banned as well. If you want to show ads on your website you will have to show the full ad.

7. Placing more than 3 ad-blocks per page : You are only allowed to have at most 3 ad-blocks and 3 link units per page on your website. If you’re using the search function from AdSense then be sure that you are not placing any additional AdSense ads on the search result page, it will get you banned. If you try to get more than 3 ad-blocks on a single page of your website, then you will most likely fail since the AdSense script automatically senses that there are too many ads, and then blocks all the additional ones from showing. Simply put, use AdSense with care, don’t fill your website with ads and it will be fine.

8. Using labels that are not allowed: When having ads on a website it might be nice to have a label over the ads saying “website sponsors” or similar, right? I mean, they are technically your sponsors since you get money from them. However this is not allowed. In fact, the only labels you are allowed to use along with AdSense are “Sponsored Links” or “Advertisements”.

9. Putting ads on pages without any content: Let’s face it, it’s not good for you and it’s not good for the advertiser, so why do it? Some people just create a bland page or website and then put an AdSense ad on it to make money. But the truth is that having AdSense on a website without any content will generate you about $0.01 per click since AdSense can’t find any suitable category for your page. Also, the advertisers are paying for content-related clicks. So before you even think about doing this, stop for a second and think, is $0.01 per click worth getting banned or warned for? Didn’t think so, there are a lot of better ways to make money from AdSense.

10. Opening a new page when someone clicks the ads: I must admit that I have been guilty of breaking this rule once, though in my poor defense I didn’t know that it existed. When someone clicks on an ad on your website they will also leave your website. Some webmasters have tried using plug-ins or scripts so that all out-going links on their websites open up in a new tab or window. I had an WordPress plug-in that did this for me automatically (long before I even used AdSense). However I had to take it down since it was clearly breaking the terms, and I’m glad I did, because a lot of people have gotten in to trouble by having such things on their website.

11. Using bad sources of traffic: You are not allowed to use click-exchange, traffic-exchange, paid-to-click (PTC), paid-to-surf (PTS) or mass email spam to get visitors to your website, if you’re using AdSense. You are also not allowed to purchase traffic from people. Traffic like this might cause misleading statistics and it may also generate clicks on your ads. And if paid traffic generates clicks on your ads it would be like paying people to click (indirectly). A lot of people buys “AdSense-safe” traffic in hope of getting a better Alexa rank. Don’t be on of them.

12. Not including a Privacy Policy page : Always include a privacy page on your website explaining about the Google AdSense program and how it works. You see, AdSense uses a DoubleClick DART cookie that collects information from your website visitors to display more targeted ads and so on. It is your responsibility to set up a privacy policy page explaining about this.

13. Blatantly stuffing keywords on your websites: So we know that AdSense displays ads that is relevant to your content. But that does not mean that you should stuff your pages with keywords that are high paying or similar. A good ration of your most wanted keywords is between 3%-7%. This is a pretty natural amount and it will ensure targeted ads as well as readable content. You can also add your keywords in the title and tags of your content to help the AdSense pick them up easier without stuffing your article with them.

14. Buying an AdSense account from someone else: If you can’t get approved by AdSense then it’s not for you. Don’t buy an account from someone else since it will get you banned in the end. If you can’t even get in to the network, then how are you ever going to profit from it?

15. Sharing confidential account information: I know, once your money start rolling in it might get tempting to share your CTR or CPC with others, but keep in mind that this is against the AdSense terms as well. A lot of people share this kind of information on forums without knowing, and then one day BAM! They get banned.

16. Posting stolen content on your website: Pictures/text/videos/animations etc that you do not have permission to post should never be on your website. Not only is it illegal, but you also run a pretty high risk of getting banned from AdSense. I have already reported over 10 websites to the AdSense team after they stole my articles. And you know what? They all go banned, they all got DE-indexed from Google and I bet that their hosting company were not that happy for them either.

17. Putting your ads in a pop-up, pop-under, iFrame or scrolling banner: You are not allowed to put AdSense in these kind of things. It’s annoying for the visitor of your website and it can mess up the AdSense script. Trust me, you’re better of just placing the ad next to your content.

18. Using more than one AdSense account: I don’t understand the logic of people that uses more than one AdSense account. I mean one AdSense account can be used on plenty of websites. If you’re not stupid, then stick to one account only. The only ones that I can understand is using several accounts is black-hatters, and I barely understand them.

19. Uploading adult/violent/offensive content on your website: You may not upload pornographic, violent, racially aggressive or otherwise offending content if you’re a member of the AdSense network. Hell, you are not even allowed to use “excessive profanity”. In other words, keep it clean for everyone who comes to your website. If you’re in the porn industry I’m sure that there are plenty of other ways to make money online, trust me.

20. Running a gambling/casino website: Not allowed. A lot of these websites are illegal and I can only assume that AdSense wants no part of it.

21. Selling or sharing drugs, weapons, cracks and hacks: Are you actively selling or promoting drugs (even alcohol is a drug), weapons, ammunition, cracked software or other hacks? Then AdSense is not for you. There are alternatives for each on of these categories, just search for it.

22. Sharing student essays and coursework: What? Are you not even allowed to share or sell that awesome essay that landed you a top grade? Outrageous. Well, there’s not really a lot to say here. If you are planning on selling your work, even if you’re not using AdSense, then I hope you don’t.

23. Having links to harmful websites: Do you think any advertiser would want to show their ads on a website that has links to other websites containing Trojans, viruses, worms or similar? No, they don’t. A simple solution to this is to only put up links on your website to places you know are OK.

24. Displaying AdSense ads on websites with similar non-AdSense ads: You are allowed to use other ads on your website at the same time as you have AdSense on them. Just make sure that the other ads are not looking too similar to your AdSense ads. Google don’t want to get accused by people who thought they clicked an AdSense ad, but didn’t and then ended up at an virus infected porn website instead. Pretty logical, right?

25. Sending AdSense ads in emails or chats: If you have an email list or a chat room you are not allowed to use AdSense in it. You are however allowed to use AdSense in forums, yay!

26. Misleading or tricking people to click your ads: Maybe I should have written this one at the top along with all the other similar mistakes that people do, but I didn’t come to think of it until now. Putting an adsense text ad next to an image so that it looks like the text ad is a part of the image is one way of tricking your visitor. Maybe it wasn’t the best way to explain, so here’s another way: having ads next to buttons etc, so that a user might accidentally click the ad instead of the button. Don’t mislead or trick your website visitors, it might land you some extra quick money, but in the end you’re most likely getting warned or banned from AdSense.

27. Using a language that is not supported: I mean, come on. How are the AdSense team going to make sure that you don’t break any rules if they can’t even understand what the hell you are talking about at your website. For all they know you could be planning world war III. If you’re unsure whether your website is using one of the currently supported languages, then check this page.

Remember, the best way to avoid getting banned from AdSense is simply to read their terms. I know that it might take a while, but if you plan on making a lot of money with AdSense then it might just be worth it! I hope this answers the most questions about how to avoid getting banned from AdSense. Now, get back to making money online and I’ll see you all again next time!
