There are certain types of activity that you can do to protect your Google Adsense account. In my previous article I explain how and why YouTube Google Adsense is best. If you want to earn regularly from this Google’s product, you should follow some things as I do.
Before starting the Adsense protection guide, let me clear that what actually adsense invalid activity is which causes to ban the account.
“Invalid Adsense activity is an activity which happens in your account against Google’s terms and conditions of adsense policies.” This activity usually done by other people because jealous of your earnings or may be sometimes by software programs. We’ll discuss about this later on.
Lets begin a story which will help you to understand more deeply about the topic. I assume that (you) reader of this story has some decent past memories of school time. In those golden memories, there were some activities that we almost did. Some of those activities were crying for little things, laughing when friend was beaten, took the name of our best buddy while we did something wrong, sometimes stole pencil and pen from friend’s belonging.
We felt too much happy when we claimed that our classmate had done that mistake which he didn’t do in actual and we were the main contributor. Our following payed the price of our mistake and we just felt waooo…!!!
Same kind of scenario is here when we talk about Google Adsense account banned due to invalid activity. Lets find how it is similar with above story.
The biggest mistake of getting Adsense disable which I find is that “Social media”. After lots of efforts and hurdles blogger gets Adsense account and just within few hours he/she gets mail that your account has been disable due to invalid Adsense activity.
How social media is responsible :-
“Yepiiii…!! I have got the Google Adsense for my website and it will pay me hundreds of dollar in a month or day”.

Many from you might have understand what I am saying. This is our reaction on our social media profile when we get Adsense approval, especially on Facebook. After 2 hours of uploading this status on FB wall, you come again and share one more status i.e.
Ohh shit.. My adsense just got banned, Google you are such a cruel. Why gave me joy for only just few hours…… blah blah blah :'(
It is obvious to show your excitement when get something bigger, but I’ll say “Just stop Buddy, What are you doing?”
Simply you are just throwing you Adsense account and asking your Facebook friends and followers to ban your Adsense account. As this is the human nature, nobody can see any ones success. Our so-called buddies and relatives do clicks and clicks on ads and our adsense get disable.
This condition is similar as you are getting great marks in your class as well as you are the topper in your friends group. In next exam your friend because of jealousy throws “a chit (short cheating note)” to you in exam and certainly teacher catches you. That time you are innocent but you can’t prove it. Same kind of thing is there in sharing Google adsense approval status on social networking sites.
Best way to work safely :- Show your excitement when you get check of Google in your pocket. Share your adsense check picture when you get first check from Google.
This is one of the biggest factor in loosing Adsense account. One more major factor that leads us to get ban from Google.
Fail to check Adsense account for few hours and I loss it:-
This is one more factor that we don’t consider, especially new account achievers. “We don’t check our Adsense account at regular time intervals which causes to loss the account.”
Every blogger gets too much excited after getting Adsense approval and tends to do more hard work to get more visitors on site and generate income. Hence they forget to keep an eye on Adsense account. So, bloggers don’t miss your Adsense account to see at regular time periods.
Millionaire tip to save Adsense account :-
Check your Adsense account stats in every 2 hours at least. I used to check my adsense account in every 1 or 2 hours time interval when I was at the initial level. Still I keep eye at regular time interval on Adsense account.
The whole story of Adsense disabled moves around invalid clicks. These invalid clicks are done in two ways :
1. You click on ads yourself.
2. Same visitor clicks on advertisements more than two times in a short period of time.
To avoid both of above factors we do some important changes in our site structure and also we do some efforts to use Adsense safely.
1. You won’t click on your ads that is sure, but what if accidently you click on the ad. What if you are showing your site on your lappy to your friend and because of unknowingly he clicks on the ad. These conditions may arise. so we should prepare ourselves for this before getting this kind of any issues because….
“Prevention is better than cure.”
To prevent your adsense account follow this PHP code which help you to block the ads showing on an IP address from where you use to login into your account.
2. This thing is not in our hand that we can stop a visitor to click on ads. He/she might be from other country/state/city. Its difficult for us to stop this but yes we can do some things to stop it in some way.
Show ads only to organic users :-
This is one of the good way to stop fake clicks. Usually clicks are done by our referral traffic and direct traffic. So we need to protect our ads from these users. We can use this script to display ads only to the user from search engines.
The main drawback to use this script is that maximum sites get traffic from referral and social sharing. So it will not be good for us because if ads are not displayed to the user, page views will not be counted in Adsense account. Our main aim of article sharing of social sites is to increase the page views and by not displaying the ads we will not get benefit of it.

But if you are getting organic traffic around 80-85% then you can take this chance and display ads only to these organic visitors.
Install plugins to run safely Adsense :-
Basically bloggers create their blogs on WordPress CMS. Hence, there are certain plugins by which they can work safely with Adsense after installing them. Click Bombing, Who Sees Ads are some of the plugins that you can prefer for protecting your adsense account.
Make your domains authorized to display ads only :-
Have a Look at this image below. Here you can see that a option “Sites authorized to show ads” which ask you on which domains you want to display your ads. So check the box and add domains where you would like to display ads.
To do this Follow these steps:
- Login to Adsense account
- Enter to account settings option which is available on the left side of home page.
- Find access and authorization option and authorized your domains to display ads by checking the box “Only allow certain sites to show ads for my account”.
- After checking this, save the file.
There is one more interesting factor you can see in this picture. I face this issue, www.bing.com, google.co.in were displaying my ads. I don’t know why. I never made it authorized. Then I find solution for this and make things properly again.
No control on click bombing.. don’t display ads.
If you are failed to stop click bombing then its better for you to remove ads from your site. Click bombing usually happens due to self organized programs and bots sometime. So if click bombing is happening then don’t display ads on home page because these software programs maximum runs on home page. If still fake clicks don’t stop then remove ads from whole site.
Its better to loss some dollars than losing Adsense bank account.

When you find that your Adsense account CTR is going high and high about 10%, 20% and more… Then its your duty to inform Google Adsense clicks filter team about this. All you need is to fill this adsense invalid click form with appropriate proper details, so that google team can monetize your account closely.
