Larwee, I'm new to AdSense,
Do you think I will benefit from it by having it on my site.
Thank you

Funny Face, that isn't an easy question to answer. There are lots of people who do very well with AdSense. For many it is their biggest money-maker.

There are some people who don't do as well with AdSense. However, it really isn't difficult to do reasonably well with AdSense.

Generally content sites do best with AdSense. It helps to have a site with lots of content.

Even if you don't do well with AdSense, there are often changes you can make to help it perform better by changing the size, color or position of your AdSense ads.

Make sure you follow their rules and ask questions when you are sure about something.

The only sure way to know is to just try it out. Once accepted its as simple as putting the ad block in place and watching the results.

As Larwee pointed out some sites do better, typically those that users are searching for specific information, or looking to acomplish a particular task.

If you run a general entertainment site or something that tends to attract people's eyeballs for viewing content where they don't tend to "click" and search for info on a particular task, contextual advertising (which relies on text content to be relevant) doesn't perform as well or well at all.

Welcome to Geek/Talk, wuya2310.

That was a very short post that didn't consider many very important factors. In many cases, what is suggested isn't practical. New pages are added. Content needs to be updated. In both cases that would be changes and they are important changes that need to be made. Over a period of time, many changes could be required to be made. Not making too many changes to a site could actually be very harmful.

Very often a site has competition. The competition makes changes. New sites also come along. Search engines are often responsible for a large percentage of traffic to those sites. The competition and new sites can be going up in the search engine results pages while you are going down. Changes would be required in order to improve your position in the search results. Failing to make helpful changes is going to cause your earning to decline as you continue to fall in the search results and your traffic continues to slide while rising for the competition.

If a person follows the very solid suggestions given in this thread, a person can make the changes they need to make or should make and still avoid trouble.

Edit: Even if a person doesn't want to make changes for these reasons, they should feel free to make changes to their site whenever they want for whatever reason they want without fear of having their AdSense account suspended as a result.

If a person doesn't try anything sneaky they aren't likely to have problems. Most of the time people run into problems when they are trying to do things they shouldn't be doing.

1. People should read and understand the AdSense Terms Of Service.
2. Read and understand the tips supplied by Google that will help you avoid being suspended from AdSense.
3. Contact Google to ask them about anything you want to do if you aren't sure if it is allowed.

That is not true. We were banned with no explanation given other than "invalid clicks". When we appealed, it was rejected without any explanation. We were only using it on two of our sites, which were collectively getting less than $2 a day in revenue.

I know there are people who have been kicked out who have said they shouldn't have been. But that isn't the purpose of this post.

Google often says a lot of things and some things aren't all that clear because they leave themselves some wiggle room.

Google has provided 10 tips telling how you can prevent your site from being disabled. It might be helpful to read them if you haven't previously done so.

While they are all important, I feel the last 3 are very important and everyone in the AdSense program should pay special attention to them. Observation of number 8 and 9 would be very helpful to a lot of publishers and prevent some of the bad situations that some publishers face with the AdSense program.

Here is a link to those from Google http://www.google.com/support/adsens...y?answer=23921
I know a good site that has great features and they even provide you with adsense websites. <<spam snipped>> This site has everything you need to be successful. The interface is easy to use and there are alot of people you can compete with.

Lightbulb Another tip

The title of this thread is How to avoid being kicked out of AdSense. Many of the posts in this thread do contain information that could be very helpful in avoiding AdSense problems.

Things can be a little confusing to people who are new to AdSense. Most people want to go by the rules and at the same time they want to make some money. Some of the rules aren't all that clear. This helps to add to the confusion, even for people who have been using AdSense for a long time.

Since the purpose of this thread is to provide as much helpful information as possible, I felt this would be a good time to add another tip.

Many of the people reading this already know about this, but there are going to be some who don't. This is something every publisher who uses AdSense should know about since it can help avoid trouble with Google.

Publishers often want to test the AdSense ads that are on their site. But, when Google says do not click AdSense ads on your own site, that is exactly what that means. However there are many publishers who feel in their own minds that it will be no problem if they are just clicking to test the ads. That is an assumption which shouldn't be made, and there is a way to test the ads without clicking on them.

Google has provided a preview tool to help you learn a great deal about AdSense ads on your pages, or even if there are pages that wouldn't be good for AdSense.

If you aren't familiar with the Google AdSense preview tool, you should make it a point to learn as much about it as possible and use it to your advantage. It can be very helpful to you.

Here is a Google link to the preview tool. It might be a good idea to read and understand all of the information that is provided there by Google. https://www.google.com/support/adsen...c.py?topic=160

Any tips for people who already got kicked out, who want to get back in?
the good thing for people who get kicked out of AdSense is that, google is not the only one, there are many other websites that pay you for advertising on your website, so just join another company!

True, but most will kick you off for the same reason, so you need to address where the problem lies Try isolating the problem area with google and make sure you aren't repeating history with your next company.

Earlier I mentioned that a person should always check with Google if they aren't sure about something. I should add that you should save the answer that Google sends you. That is very important.

There have been times I've contacted Google involving AdSense and received answers that didn't sound right, so I've contacted them again and in some cases as many as three times just to make it obvious that I wanted to be positive and to make every possible effort to get the correct answer.

There have been times I've received different answers from different members of the Google AdSense team and had to contact them again to determine which answer was correct.

It is possible to contact them only once and the AdSense team member who sends an answer happens to send an answer that is not correct. You then go ahead based upon the incorrect information that you were given but didn't know it was not correct. Therefore it is very important to always keep the answers that Google sends to you.
