It took Google Adsense several months to approve my website for advertisements. Once Google Adsense approved my account, I placed the ads on my site right away. Once I earned $100.00 on Adsesne and linked my bank account to receive the payment, they suspended my account with the following 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.

I have never purchased any traffic to my site, because Adsense doesn't allow purchased traffic. They are trying to acuse me of fake ad impressions and clicks, and I have no clue how they can say that I have commited that offense. I have never clicked my ads, nor have I paid or told others to click my ads for me.

So they have banned my account after my first $100.00 was made within the week I have had adsense on my website at www.referraldirectoryforum.com. I have many members on Referral Directory and I am sure many of them have clicked ads, but it's not because I have told them too or convinced them to click ads in any way.

Google Adsense should have contacted me first and asked me about the situation before they made any big changes my account with that much money earned.
