For sometimes now I have been using AdSense on this Blog and if you’ve been following me you should have noticed that. on the long run something came up with my usual AdSense account that was when I was having issue adding another payment method even after I have used it in receiving payment severally. It was more than a nightmare, I had no other option than to get rid of it then get another AdSense which I did.
Am Sure you can learn successful Blogging secrets through me, am also sure you can learn how to make money online with the help of my updates why not leave your email behind let me show you how.
Immediately I removed those ads from my site, I applied with my second blog which is Paypal Nigeria which many of you may have known even before now. This time i didn’t apply for USA AdSense but Nigeria AdSense account.
After applying, in two days or so I got approval message from AdSense “that was the first time and the only time I applied with the site” It wasn’t rejected. Hope you know why? I stated that here about my article regarding getting AdSense approval easily.
Now that AdSense has approved my site, I immediately added back this blog as an add-on domain name since most of my AdSense revenue comes from here. The next day the earning already reached $10 bidding me to verify my AdSense account as usual.
So I added an address from one friend in Lagos. It’s 4Weeks past the verification pin is yet to arrive and my earning has grown big already. So I needed to get another address and request a new verification pin. I asked around for someone who offers Nigeria AdSense verification services. Fortunately and unfortunately i found one. (don’t be confused you will realize why i used both English at once)
so I immediately edited my AdSense account, Changed the Address and requested a new pin. Am waiting (few days past) I logged saw the heartbreaking No- reply email from Google (lol the only email message that will make you pack your car even when you’re driving, The only email message that will change your happy to sad mode without anyone offending you, The email message that can take your happiness for a whole month, the only email message that can cause your BP if you aren’t courteous enough.) Below was how the email message appeared just like it has usually been.
AdSense Disable Message
With our advertising programs we strive to create an online ecosystem that benefits publishers, advertisers, and users. For this reason, we sometimes have to take action against accounts that show behavior towards users or advertisers that may negatively impact how the ecosystem is perceived. In your case, we have detected invalid activity on your AdSense account and as a result, it has been disabled.
We are limited in the amount of information we can provide about your specific violation. We understand that you may want more information about your account activity. However, in order to protect our proprietary detection systems, we are unable to provide further details.
In some cases, publishers can make significant changes to correct the violation and are willing to comply with the AdSense program policies. For this reason, we offer an appeal process as an opportunity to work with you to resolve the issue. Please be sure to provide a complete analysis of your traffic or other reasons that may have generated invalid activity in your appeal. Submit your appeal using this form and we will follow up accordingly. Before submission, please review the list of the top reasons for account closure.
Thanks for your understanding.
The Google AdSense Team
Well, I didn’t feel it that much because am not a baby when it comes to AdSense. I know their matter, I just took it like h.mmmmmm (bear it though it was painful) My earning is gone I was having about $200 in there then.
I immediately submitted an appeal. I wasn’t having the mind of getting back my AdSense because am aware that once AdSense is gone you can’t recover it forget what anyone might be claiming online about recovering ban or disabled AdSense account. it doesn’t work as of this age. My appeal was turned down just as expected of them.
It was a bad day: But not too bad because things that are worse than that has happened to me in blogging. it’s just normal thing in blogging. the road is not always smooth.
Am i doomed?
No, am not doomed since i can still make money even without AdSense. You wanna know how? You can check out my services page here. beside that, i do earn from paid sponsored posts too though it’s not often.
Other methods i earn here is via referral and affiliate programs. which I do embed in my blog posts. I was glad because AdSense wasn’t my only income sources and that’s why I always tell my fans: Do no Carry all your eggs in one basket because if anything happen to that basket all your eggs will go down and you will have none left.
So what really Caused it?
People who do AdSense verification services give out their address in general. so when so many AdSense accounts verified with that address has been banned, AdSense will automatically blackmail that address. Any other person who will use that address for verification is prone to AdSense ban.
That was exactly what happened in my own case. The address has been blacklisted and I never knew because i accessed my account and there’s nothing like invalid activities. all my clicks are real and genuine and more than 80% of my traffic is from google (quality traffic)
It’s gone and there’s nothing I can do about it but tell the address owner to look for other addresses rather getting peoples AdSense account ban in the name of AdSense verification. He apologized like he already knew it but that can’t solve it either (too late to cry when the head of cut off).
I lost my AdSense all because of using a bad verification address.
Learn Your Lesson
- Knowing the real address to use can be very difficult. in that case, if you have a nearby post office why not use their address and do it yourself if you can’t trust any address (that’s for Nigeria AdSense verification) For USA and UK verification you can meet me for verification. I don’t verify either but i have sure guys with sure addresses. (6k for the pin and Tax verification).
- Don’t Depend on AdSense because they are like a pregnant woman. You can never tell what hour they will give birth. AdSense will disappoint you at the most needing point. They are unpredictable. Keep using them as it keeps working but don’t let it be your major income source because if you depend fully on them, the day it will happen you won’t stop calling your village witches.
- I still prefer UK and US AdSense to Nigeria AdSense accounts in terms of verification. I never had an issue during verification when i was using US AdSense. Nigeria AdSense pin verification is very critical when it comes to getting a good address to receive your pin unlike, US and UK ads.
My current Project and plan
Just like many people change domain names and apply again for AdSense “a taught about that” but God forbid was my inner reply.
If anything happens to your AdSense account after growing your blog strong in SEO, don’t dare change your domain name because it will reduce your site ranking and authority In fact everything.
There’s nothing good in changing your brand domain name: Though it can be done with good practices and redirections, you will so much regret if the wrong person handles that for you. As for me, I don’t like doing anything that might cause my site downfall because I know how hard i have worked to grow it to this stage.
Is there any guarantee you won’t get ban again after changing your domain name? No no no. I have seen friends changed domain more than three to four times all because of AdSense and they kept getting AdSense issues. You will so much be frustrated when such happens.
My plan: I wasn’t dedicated fully to affiliate marketing before now but henceforth am giving full attention to that. I will focus more growing my blog very large and turn it to a bigger brand that will attract more paid sponsored posts and i will keep doing my other stuff to earn money while blogging.
If you get AdSense ban, That’s not the end of your world instead AdSense is telling you to look for an alternative to earn from your blog instead of been dependent. Don’t blog for AdSense but blog to make money. For those who haven’t gotten AdSense approval, you can check out my post on how to get approved easily. and to those who are using AdSense always remember that’s not the last bus-stop.
I only see AdSense disable message as an opportunity to put more effort in growing my blog large.
