Google AdSense recently disabled my account for one of my blogs. Surprising thing is this isn't the first or second or third time. I never violate their policies as far as I can tell. Each time this happens, its mostly close to the time I'm about to reach threshold or collect my earnings.

I'm really disturbed this time and I can't show ads on that website again. I need to redirect to another domain a second time due to this same issue. It took a while to build Authority for the new domain and not up to 4 months, i'm starting all over again with another new domain. I'm wondering what to do next and how to avoid this.

Do you send any paid traffic to the blog? I have been running with Adsense for some time now and had no problem but all my traffic is organic. Years ago on a different project, I got disabled because I used AdWords to send traffic to affiliate pages that also had Adsense. It is against their terms to send paid traffic to pages that have a lot of Adsense ads, aka click arbitrage.

Just one thought.

Good luck.

What reason did they give in the termination notification? usually there is a token explanation that can give you a clue, such as "invalid click activity".

The four main reasons Google bans publishers from adsense are:
invalid clicks
poor quality traffic (ppv/paid)
scraped/duplicate/low value content
account linked to another banned account

Invalid clicks can be due to poor site layout or placement of ads close to navigation points. If your ad placement leads to accidental clicks that inflate your CTR, Google will eventually notice because a disproporptionate number of ad clickers will simply bounce back to your site because they didnt mean to click the ad. Google easily measures that because analytics on the advertiser site will register the bounce and Google will detect a quick reload of ads to the same visitor on your site. Too much of that makes for unhappy advertisers = unhappy Google = banned accounts.

On traffic quality: Showing ads to paid Adwords traffic should be OK - its HQ google traffic after all and Google gets paid for that. Crappy PPV traffic tends to be loaded with bots or iframed pageloads that you definitely do not want to be showing adsense ads to - PPV is Adsense suicide.

Content quality - it used to be possible to republish thin content for adsense, but the quality of content ads get shown on better be tip top these days. If you're going to move your site to a new domain to reapply, you should make sure the content is no longer listed in Google index. Dupe content = ban.

Google will also ban ad accounts if they can link your account to another banned account. So better use a virtual machine with a proxy, or a Firefox portable instance with a proxy, or a dedicated profile manager like browzio - if Google gets a sniff of a cookie or IP from a banned login that they can link to your new account, the ban hammer will get you.
