10 Tricks to Avoid Google AdSense Ban for your WordPress Site

AdSense is one of the best contextual and highest paying ad network for any blogger. You have to take care of certain things to stop violating AdSense policies. As you all know, getting Adsense approval is not that easy. So you need to do many things to keep your AdSense account active.

When Google launched Google Panda, they also made some major changes in Adsense quality guidelines. Especially, in 2011-2012 we have noticed many Indian and Pakistani Adsense publishers has been banned due to copyright violation and due to low-quality pages.Therefore it’s important to make new AdSense publishers aware of Adsense policies and things to avoid, which may lead to account ban.

Avoid Invalid Clicks

This is where the maximum Adsense account gets into the danger zone. Most of the publisher who starts with Adsense, they usually ask their friend to click on Ads or click on their Ads from different I.P. If Adsense team detect such activity, they put your account in disable mode to ensure and safeguard their Advertisers.

Also, many new publishers ask their readers to click on ads, which is also discouraged by Adsense as stated in their program policies.

Don’t Use Adsense on unsupported language Blog

At the time of writing, Google doesn’t support all the languages to qualify for Adsense program. If you have approved AdSense account, and you are using it to show it on the blog whose language don’t qualify Adsense TOS, then make changes as soon as possible. Especially, if you are using any method to make your blog multi-lingual and serving Ads on it, this will be considered as a violation.

Don’t Send Ads on Email

Many publishers started the trend of sending AdSense adverts within the email, and sometimes it goes viral. Google finds it against the program policies.

Avoid Altering the Adsense code

Changing your Adsense code in anyways is not permitted by Google. Even placing Google Adsense Image ad unit with the adjacent image can be a great and smart move, but it may lead to because Google TOS doesn’t allow the use of shading your AdSense image ads with the adjacent image.

Avoid Using Advertisement labels

Many publishers start using a trick like Click here,  Click to see hot babe which do encourage clicks.  Or people use pop-up script to show Adsense in pop-up and readers have to click on it to read the content. Avoid all this.

No Competitive contextual advertisement

Make sure you don’t use any other contextual advertisement program. Let Google ad sense by your only and favorite advertisement program. Though for monetization you can use many other ad networks which comply with Adsense TOS. Infolinks, BuySellads, Technorati Media, Viglink.

Don’t Host Copyright content

If you are running Adsense on a site that distributes copyright content like Movies, songs or any other files, you are most likely to get an instant ban. Adsense doesn’t allow putting Adsense on the site that distributes copyright stuff.

Don’t Link to sites distributing illegal /copyright content

If you are linking to sites that are illegal or pirated software, Keygen sites, your AdSense serving might be disabled for that particular site. Content, which is not allowed for Adsense sites are:

  • Porn, Adult content
  • Violent/Racial content
  • Hacking/Cracking
  • Gambling/Casino
  • Sites selling Drugs, Alcohol (Beer or hard alcohol)
  • Sites selling Weapons and ammunition
  • Distribution of course work

So, you should avoid putting any such content on your blog or at least avoid serving Adsense on those pages.

Don’t Buy Traffic:

If you are buying traffic for your Adsense enabled sites, it’s not permitted according to AdSense TOS. Also, consider reading Adsense landing page Quality guidelines, which will give you ample amount of idea, what Google expect from your pages.

Promoting your post on Social media or buying traffic from quality sites like Facebook, Stumbleupon, Reddit is not the violation.

Check your AdSense Ads

Don’t make your AdSense ads sticky. Making it sticky is against AdSense implementation policy. You are free to make your ads blend with the content by changing the color or size, but don’t make it look exactly like content.  Using AdSense ads on a Site, which curate videos from Youtube or other video hosting site, can put your account on radar. To Avoid this, ensure you also have original content on your blog. A good idea is to add 250-300 words content in your words describing the video. Don’t place AdSense ads on 404 error page, Exit pages, log-in pages and thank you pages.
