Why is a Publisher at Risk of Being Banned By AdSense?

Do you know why any website is banned by Adsense? It is common for digital publishers to misunderstand Google AdSense banned checks as more focused on other activities than user-friendly. According to Google policy, Magicbid helps to prevent or be aware of any ban by Google AdSense. This blog is very useful for publishers’ points of view. It can help to improve your website for AdSense eligibility. 

You might wonder, what exactly do we mean by ‘activity-friendly’?

It’s related to the impressions and engagements generated on an ad hosted by the publisher. While AdSense is a platform for monetization, not every reported activity on an ad should be paid for by advertisers. When invalid traffic comes into play, it’s Google AdSense’s job to make sure they keep such fraudulent impressions in check.

To do this effectively, AdSense has policies regarding publisher activity. Violating these policies can lead to consequences as severe as the temporary or permanent suspension of the publisher’s account. Let’s discuss some violations committed by publishers that expose them to the risk of account suspension.

AdSense Violations: You Might Be Committing

AdSense Violations
Clicking Your Own Ads
      • Clicking your own ads intentionally or unintentionally is a common violation. Google takes this seriously because advertisers don’t want to pay extra for invalid clicks generated by the publisher.

Placing Ads on Copyright-Infringed Content

      • AdSense doesn’t allow ads on websites with copyright-infringed content. If your site has copyrighted material without permission, using AdSense for monetization is a policy violation.

Prohibited Content on AdSense

      • AdSense prohibits certain content, including drugs, alcohol, hacking, adult content, and more. If your site has such content, you risk policy violations.

Absence of Privacy Policy Page

      • AdSense mandates a Privacy Policy page. Failing to have one can lead to policy violations. It ensures that information collected about users is consensual.

Non-User-Centric Website

      • Placing ads poorly, disrupting the user experience, or not labeling ad units appropriately can lead to policy violations. Efforts should be made to improve user experience.

Placing Ads on Error 404 Pages

      • Displaying ads on pages with little traffic, like Error 404 pages, can be seen as deceptive. Google considers this a policy violation.

Ads in Unsupported Language

      • If your site doesn’t support AdSense-listed languages other than English, you lose the opportunity to display ads.

Placing AdSense Ads on Pages with Little to No Content

      • AdSense requires ads on pages with substantial and original content. Placing ads on pages with minimal content violates AdSense policies.

Encouraging Clicks on AdSense Ads

      • Encouraging clicks on AdSense ads, offering rewards, or using language that pushes users to click is strictly prohibited.

Using Bots or Automated Tools

      • Using bots or automated tools to generate clicks or impressions on AdSense ads is considered fraudulent and strictly prohibited.

Modifying AdSense Code

  • Modifying AdSense code in any way, including altering it to inflate clicks or impressions, hiding ads, or making them look like content, is strictly prohibited.

Understanding and adhering to these policies is crucial for publishers using Google AdSense to avoid the risk of account suspension or termination.
