Introduction to Google Adsense

Google Adsense is a good way to earn money with your website and probably one of the most remunerating PPC Advertising Networks there is. Moreover, Google Adsense is also one of the best ways to make money with your website, as their rates are the most interesting in the market and they are one of the most preferred advertising networks by advertisers.

Since they are so serious about paying their publishers, Google Adsense has several rules concerning the content quality of the publisher's website, and failing to follow their guidelines can result in the termination of your account.

In this article we will see the top 12 Mistakes made by Adsense publishers, and probably the reasons why they lost their accounts. If you don't infringe on these rules, there is a 99% chance that your account will survive and that you will start to earn big money with Google Adsense.

12 Mistakes To Avoid When Using Google Adsense

When a Google Adsense account is terminated, which is fortunately very rare, it's almost always due to the content of a website. These mistakes regarding your content may result in the termination of your account.

1. Content promoting the commercialization of drugs
It is important to note that articles concerning medicine and medication are perfectly eligible, Google Adsense knowing easily how to differentiate the two.

2. Selling counterfeit products
Whether watches, clothes or even electronic devices, Google does not allow their advertisement Google Adsense to appear on website selling counterfeit or fake items.

3. Casinos or gambling
Sorry but if your website is about casinos, luck games, gambling and such you can't display Google Adsense advertising on your pages. There may be some rares exceptions sometimes, but I have never heard of them. More over, luck games requiring money are also a big no-no.

4. Content related to firearms and ammo
There may be some exceptions such as war-games like Paintball or Airsoft, but it's really on a case-by-case review. Note that other weaponry like medieval documents is generally accepted.

5. Content related to alcoholic drinks
No beer, no whiskey, no wine. Content related to alcoholic drinks are prohibited from using the Google Adsense ad program.

6. Tobacco and derived products
Don't start a website on tobacco if you are hoping to be accepted by Google Adsense, because content on Tobacco and derived products is ineligible for the Google Adsense ad program.

7. Encouraging piracy
Even if Google is openly outspoken against SOPA and PIPA, it would be going a little to far as to allow websites encouraging piracy to use Google Adsense.

8. Adult content
Google Adsense is NOT an adult advertising network, although those do exist. If you are really desperate to monetize your adult website I suggest you check them out, but the payout rates are far inferior to Google Adsense.

9. Drugs and narcotics
Again, if you want to use Google Adsense your website should be clear of such content.

10. Racist or violent content
Be careful of other advertising networks on which you don't have control, as those may also display this kind of content.

11. Remuneration of actions (Pay-to-XXX)
Such as pay-to-surf, but also pay-to-click, pay-to-email, pay-to-download and pay-to-survey websites.

12. Made For Adsense Content
Low quality content destined only to incite your visitors to click on your ads, or show very high paying keywords with low quality content.
