Today I was checking the money I've made from Adsense since I implemented the codes and I'm doing pretty d*mn well, when I realized my account could get banned today, tomorrow or perhaps a few hours from now, without me doing anything at all. It's so easy to get someone's Adsense Account banned!
How? Not much of a carefully thought plan really. Someone, perhaps a fellow blogger or a complete stranger can simply scrape your Publisher ID and place it a website that violates the TOS of Google. Worst, these good for nothing "adsense account killers" will click on the ads over and over again. Then you get the blame for using your adsense codes on prohibited websites. See how easy it is for others to get your adsense account banned? Definitely, not until you get your hard earned money from Adsense, you can't relax (more especially if you are earning way too good)! In simplest terms: Your Adsense Account is not safe! Of course if you get banned you can always beg google for account reinstatement and go through the process wherein you are the victim, the suspect and at the same time the lawyer, as against the respondent, and at the same the judge- Big G! More or less the outcome is predictable.
Now it's possible to choose which sites your adsense codes will appear. Thanks to a fellow blogger for informing me about this. Now we could be safer. Specify which sites your adsense ads will run. Set it up now:Well, I am waiting for the time when google will make it possible for bloggers to specify which sites their adsense codes will appear. This way, we know who's using another's adsense pub ID and make the Publishers stand on a more safer ground!(edited)
