How to Appeal a Ban from Google Adsense

[This is part of the Blogger's Guide to Earning More with Google Adsense.]

A natural follow-up to the last post in the Adsense for Bloggers Series is how to engage with Google if you do, in fact, get banned either because you ignored the rules and policies on purpose (or by accident).

Of course, as I mentioned in the post, you could have been banned because someone was purposefully out to get you and manipulating your earnings to force a ban – but in both cases you’ll need to submit an appeal to Google to get your account back.

All you can really do is fill out this Violation Appeal Form and hope for the very best. Fill it out with the required information and be as honest as you possibly can to see if you can get your account back and have another shot at using their service.

Beyond being honest you’ll want to give as much information and evidence that you are a legitimate user, you’re upstanding, and that you either did it completely by accident or you were subject to some a malicious user. Screenshots and other proof will help as well.

If you get rejected and still want to use Adsense you’ll have to start another account using another account name and/or entity/business. This also be another person in your company as well.

Just make sure that if you apply you don’t use the website and/or blog that originally got banned as the entry domain and website! This is an obvious “Duh” but worth mentioning anyways!

If you’re completely desperate you could use another person’s account and have them put their adsense code on your site and have them pay you out every month but man, that’s pretty darn desperate (and a lot of work).

Gotta do what you gotta do, right?

Good luck and hopefully you’ll never have to deal with this challenge ever, right?! Just in case you might as well review this post, again!

    Hopefully, this never happens to me, but if it does, thanks for the tips.

    By the way, your FB like button is stretching over into the “Name” section of the comment box. To type in my name, I had to click way over on the word “Name” rather than in the name box itself. The div it is in appears to have a width of 450px.

    You can check for the adsense alternatives. There are a lot of options other than adsense.

    Adsense is really risky.
