Google Disables AdSense Accounts: Bug Or Cleaning House?

There are many complaints in the Google AdSense Help forums of mass AdSense account disabling over the weekend. Most, if not all, seem to have YouTube hosted accounts and they are getting notices that their accounts were disabled.

The notices read:

Your AdSense application status

As mentioned in our welcome email, we conduct a second review of your AdSense application once AdSense code is placed on your site(s).

We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below

Site does not comply with Google policies: We're unable to approve your AdSense application at this time because your site does not comply with the Google AdSense program policies or adhere to the Webmaster Quality guidelines. It's our goal to provide our advertisers sites that offer rich and meaningful content, receive organic traffic, and allow us to serve well-targeted ads to users. We believe that currently your site does not fulfill this criteria.

Here are some recommendations to help you improve the user experience on your site and comply with AdSense criteria:

- It’s important for sites displaying Google ads to offer significant value to the user. As a publisher, you must provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site first.
- Don’t place ads on auto-generated pages or pages with little to no original content.
- Your site should also provide a good user experience through clear navigation and organization. Users should be able to easily click through your pages and find the information they’re seeking.

One YouTuber said he has 10 Accounts on YouTube with three different Google email accounts, all were disabled.

There are many other threads of this with complaints but the one I linked to is the most active.

Google has not responded in the thread, so I am unsure if it is a bug or Google clearing house.
