I just got my adsense account disabled today, and I'm wondering who else has theirs disabled.

I got an email, and it says

Hello Josh Tessin,

It has come to our attention that invalid clicks and/or impressions
have been generated on the Google ads on your site(s). We have
therefore disabled your Google AdSense account. Please understand that
this was a necessary step to protect the interests of AdWords
advertisers.

As you may know, a publisher's site may not have invalid clicks or
impressions on any ad(s), including but not limited to clicks and/or
impressions generated by:

- a publisher on his own web pages
- a publisher encouraging others to click on his ads
- automated clicking or surfing programs, or any other deceptive
software
- a publisher altering any portion of the ad code or changing the
layout, behavior, targeting, or delivery of ads for any reason

These or any other such activities that violate Google AdSense Terms
and Conditions and program polices may have led us to disable your
account. The Terms and Conditions and program polices can be viewed at:

https://www.google.com/adsense/localized-terms?hl=en_US
https://www.google.com/adsense/policies?hl=en_US

If you have any questions about invalid activity or the action taken on
your account, please do not reply to this email. You can find more
information by visiting
https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/...py?answer=57153.

Sincerely,

The Google AdSense Team

I'm guessing thats cause my friends clicked. Lol, stupid friends.
So I clicked on the third link, and I found another link to send an "appeal" so I'm waiting for a response.

I have never got my first check yet, my accounts last balance was around 50 bucks. D=

You don't get paid by adsense until you have $100 in your account, and there are no holds. One of your friends didn't do something stupid like use a bot to click adds over and over, did they?

The very same thing happened to me. I got to arounf $50 and they said I was basically trying to cheat. I tried the "appeal" thing but they seemed pretty darned sure I was using my vast botnet army of computers to fake clicks.

Needless to say I was not amused.

Methinks Google may need to revise their method for detecting fraud. I will not use their ad service again.
