How I Got My Google Adsense Account Back In 14 Days

On Friday, October 10, 2008 I got an email from Google AdSense Team and I was shocked to read that my AdSense account is disabled due to invalid clicks.

It was really an embarrassing moment as there were 160$ on hold. Then finally, I decided to write an application to Google and I got a reply on Wednesday, October 15, 2008 saying :

On Friday, October 24, 2008 AdSense Team replied to my mail and I got my account back. When I opened my AdSense account my 160$ were still in it. It was hard to keep my feet on the ground. Then I decided to share my experience on how I got my AdSense account back in 14 days. Lets start :

My habit saved my account :

I have a habit to take screenshot of my AdSense account daily . When ever I noticed invalid clicks I used to take a screenshot, note the exact date and time and request invalid clicks. Click here to visit Invalid Clicks Contact Form

Where did I Appeal about disabled account :

When your account gets disabled by Google just remember that you have only one chance to make an appeal. So, your mail should be impressive and well written. You can write to Google from Online Appeal Form

What did I write :

As mentioned above about my habit, I wrote a big mail to Google giving them the exact date, time and screenshot about the invalid clicks. I knew it was my first and last chance, I also told them about my previous earnings.

Just after 14 days I got an mail from AdSense Team saying :

Thank you for clarifying your situation. We have reviewed your
circumstances and have reinstated your account, effective immediately.
Please note that there will be a delay of up to 48 hours before our
servers are informed of the update and ads start running on your website

Editor’s Note: Congrats Gagan for getting back his Adsense account. I came across many such incidents recently. I hope Gagan’s post will help guys in trouble.

    Gagan, Deepak is right! If possible please edit this post to provide the mail you sent to Google! Congrats for the great miracle which occurs for one in lakh :)

    I think you can use this experience to create a really great tool. Something that will keep checking your adsense account and report any CTR beyond a certain %. Then the webmaster can check the account manually and report to google if required.

    I just got my account disabled. no reason…case closed. If google can sense invalid clicks then why don’t they just remove them at the time and let you keep your account? I certainly do not have capabilities to tell who is clicking on THEIR ads. This is stupid and I am going to the BBB with this BS

  • Sushant

    Thats why I say never depend on only one revenue source.Split it up in different channels
