  • Never click on your Google AdSense ads. Otherwise, monitoring systems by Google AdSense will track your activities and put you in trouble. Sometimes, you may be interested in seeing what is being displayed on your website as Google AdSense ads, but you are not supposed to click on it to see what page it links to. This is a crime in the eyes of Google. If you still want to see the content linked to that ad, you can type that URL into a new address bar and you will be on the safer side. This is the safest way to know what is there in your Google AdSense ads.
  • Do not invite or force anybody to click on your ads being displayed on blogs or website you own which will lead to Click Bombing. Google AdSense Monitoring System is smarter than you. Once it identifies a pattern of Click Bombing, it will start very careful observation of your account and in case of violation of policies of Google AdSense, you will be given disapproval from Google AdSense and your AdSense account may be disabled. Do not ever try to click from other IP address PCs and other networks, and also instruct your family members not to do click bombing on your ads. Once you have got your account disabled from Google, it is quite impossible for you to get it back enabled.
  • Choose the location of ads in your website aptly to avoid accidental clicks by visitor. You are not required to force them to see what is in ads by making them click on it. Rather, you should place ads in a location which is remote from page controls and some of the confusing figures. If you have written an article about T-shirts making process, you will be given image ads of T-shirts by Google AdSense. Normally visitors may be confused by the placement of ads near images of your article. So, do not try to confuse Google AdSense as well as visitors. Instead, try to place ads in proper places.
  • Do not use prohibited content in your article or website. Google policies are very strict in this area. Do not put content related to porn matter, copyrighted matter, violent or gambling content. If prohibited content is found on the website, Google AdSense will immediately take action against that Google AdSense account and it will disable it.
  • Always use content which is relevant and genuine. Copy-Paste activity from any other website is not allowed by Google AdSense. It is better to use genuine content to increase organic traffic to your website or blog. This will help you to build a reputation of your website or blog.

  • Do not try to alter ad code generated by Google AdSense. This is strictly prohibited by Google AdSense and do not try to change the layout, targeting ads and the behaviour of ads. You need to only put the ads code but should not alter the code of Google AdSense.
  • Reply Google AdSense genuinely when you are given notice from Google AdSense for violation of Google AdSense policies. Try to correct the mistake and assure Google AdSense that the mistake will not be repeated in future. Google AdSense will keep a record of your violations of Google AdSense policies.
  • Traffic sources Google does not encourage the display of ads on pages which are based on paid to click system.
  • Gambling Content Google restrict Google ads to gambling website/blog or content related to Gambling
