Google Disables AdSense Serving From AdSense Veteran

Google AdSense logoA WebmasterWorld thread has a nine-year old AdSense publisher claiming he was penalized by Google AdSense for user generated content and without proper notification.

He explained that his site gets spammed and he removes the spam but due to email issues, he missed a 3-day window notification to remove the spam. After a couple of warnings and responses back and forth, without warning, according to the publisher, Google disabled his AdSense ads from serving.

The publisher wrote:

Google just directly disabled serving ads on my website without prior alert!

This time I was online when their system sent the message; I immediately did a manual scan, removed several spams that went through (all within the hour), then I appealed and explained (I also complained that I didn't get a warning)

I've been a good citizen for more than 9 years, never had any problem, never attempted anything even remotely unethical. Adsense earnings has been my main income for years (I kind of regret that now), I'm not stupid to jeopardize it, and I'm not going to do that any time soon!

Either this publisher isn't telling the full story or Google needs to get their act together. Which is it?

It is really pathetic for a 9 years old Adsense publisher ! Similar situation was faced by some experts too and when we asked this question to Main Uddin who is a pioneer Google Adsense expert from North East India and he has replied the query as Google Adsense new application reviewers have found some violation on targeted website (applicant’s) where normal eyes see nothing wrong but there is some violation or some time it is misunderstood by the application reviewers or simply they don't want some one in their publisher network .[ hint : http://www.netprofitmantra.com/adsense-account-was-disapproved-as-site-does-not-comply-with-google-policies/ ]

I hate Google for the disrespect it shows for those who have respected all rules and regulations for such a long period. A seasoned veteran in this case. And why is it that we continue to see adsense bans being served out even after the announcement in December that it would not do so??

Google just plain sucks. They think they are the Internet owners, and we are so stupid to continue using their services and caring about them. Somehow, take Google out from anyone on the Internet and his question will be "WHAT DO I DO NOW?" as if there wasn't any other option.

Somebody has to stand up to Google and declare it for what it is -- a monopoly. And consequently start regulating this monster

My got activated after a couple of time. Just make sure your content is original and you do not do irregular click activity, then google won't block you

This is why having one Monopoly leader in one thing isn't good. Be it affiliate program, be it CPC network or be it CPM. We should always have better alternatives or better competitors. It's all dependent on how publishers go through! Suppose if we go with different alternatives with second priority to Google Adsense then we can make something better!

I bet it was Google that made the mistake. I got an email in February last year saying I had a policy violation and had 72 hours to fix the problem. I simply forgot to remove the code from 1 page. It wasn't intentional, but a slip of the mind. I did fix it within 1 hour and still had ad serving disabled. It took an appeal to get the ad serving enabled again. The over automation of the system is a joke. The ad revenue is falling for publishers, and Google too because they keep closing accounts and sending a large proportion of honest publishers to their competition, who are now taking a larger slice of the advertising market. If Google can't effectively self regulate governments will one day step in and do it for them. Which would Google prefer?

As information available says that Main Uddin was an early bird of Google Adsense and his business account was disabled in 2011 , finally he had stopped using Google Adsense
