Google sent me a mail saying that my account is disabled due to invalid clicks.
That means that i can't use google adsense again?

(If you want i can post the mail they sent me)

Propably you should ask them to tell you why they banned you.

Hello E. X.,

It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on
the Google ads on your site(s). We have therefore disabled your Google
AdSense account. Please understand that this step was taken in an
effort to protect the interest of the AdWords advertisers.

A publisher's site may not have invalid clicks on any ad(s), including
but not limited to clicks generated by:

- a publisher on his own web pages
- a publisher encouraging others to click on his ads
- automated clicking programs or any other deceptive software
- a publisher altering any portion of the ad code or changing the
layout, behavior, targeting, or delivery of ads for any reason

Practices such as these are in violation of the Google AdSense Terms
and Conditions and program polices, which can be viewed at:

https://www.google.com/adsense/localized-terms?hl=en_US
https://www.google.com/adsense/policies?hl=en_US

Publishers disabled for invalid click activity are not allowed further
participation in AdSense and do not receive any further payment. The
earnings on your account will be properly returned to the affected
advertisers.

Sincerely,

The Google AdSense Team


That was the mail they sent me.

This is called click fraud. If you haven't clicked on your ads, then you can send them an email, otherwise don't bother at all.

It is very difficult to get unbanned from adsense (at least this is what I hear from others that have been banned)

I think i must have clicked them. I am not sure.
I had changed site and i used the same code to my new without telling them.
Do you think that this is a reason for banning me?

No this is not a reason to get banned, and actually it is very legal to do this, but clicking on your ads even once is a reason to get banned....

Hi,

It happens to me that I click on ads on my site too:

1. to know who is the concurrent advertiser
2. during development (miss my real click target)

I think its diff. if you click to often on the ads on your website. I know that if click on ads via sites on my local server the click is counted but there will no money paid.

So if you get banned then there is more happend then a few innocent clicks...

hello xnontas

when did you get the email? was it a weekend?

if it was a weekend, someone might have clicked on your ads many times using the same ip that could have triggered their click fraud algorithm. you see, they hold no office during weekends and holidays so they have this algorithm to keep an eye for fraudulent clicks. send them an email. you might have a chance to unban your account since they will manually take a peek at it.

if it was otherwise, they now send warning emails first to those publishers suspected of commiting click fraud before banning their account.

I think it was more than a weekend.
It's about 2-3 weeks.
Anyway, thanks for helping!!
