A WebmasterWorld thread asks how to prevent publishers from being banned from Google AdSense.
AdSenseAdvisor writes in and offers two links to the Google AdSense Help Center to assist with these issues.
In the Google AdSense Help Center page on how to keep your account in good standing, some tips are provided that include:
- Don't click on your own ads
- Don't ask others to click on your ads
- Don't use popups
- Respect Google trademarks
Also, AdSenseAdvisor offers a link to a very comprehensive Disabled Account FAQ that addresses the most commonly-asked questions related to disabled accounts, including if the publisher will get paid and if s/he can get the account reenabled.
