  1. Nice info – I was considering Ad Sense and now it seems to make no cents, Perhaps they should change their name to:

    G Ø Ø G L E

    1. lol at “make no cents” and “G Ø Ø G L E”

  2. Hrm..I have adsense on my website, I’ve never been fond of it as it makes ZERO moneys, not even a buck or two..or even five pennies. I think I’ll just take it off now. I don’t even like the ads and how they look. SO booyah to that one.

    if you are looking for something that will generate income and you don’t get a shitload of page views or even if you do…whichever..go with amazon affiliates. I’ve had them since…April and while I haven’t made a lot of money, I’ve made a whopping $12.00 with them. It’s a passive ad and I don’t mind what they show in the image as I somewhat control what the ad looks like..PLUS you can use it in your actual posts and if someone clicks through, you get a few cents here and there.

    There are some issues with them, as with any affiliate thing, but I really haven’t had any issue with them, myself.

    Anyways, good article, I’m going to go disable google adsense off my main website.

    1. I am so glad you pulled the Google ads; especially since you were showing their ads for free!

      I’m sure every aspect of the adsense/adwords program is crooked, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re cheating on the metrics. I can’t believe they’ve claimed you have zero revenue after running their ads for so long..

      Many of the Google products are great, but that shouldn’t be a license for them to steal from people.

      I’ve noticed the Amazon ads on your site, I really like how they fit in with your articles, and have clicked through a couple of times in the past to look at the items. I remember a zombie doll you had up once that looked very cool.

      Unfortunately, I’m in one of the (about) 15 states that Amazon doesn’t allow to be an affiliate. They’ve gotten in fights with a few states over not collecting sales tax and terminated all the affiliate agreements in those states.

    Google ad word is effective tool.They need to revive their policies regarding domain name.But ad word really gives benefit to websites.While starting campaign for your website you need to review that time to time.Therefore review your campaign time to time compare with other factors.For more information you can visit:http://www.dpfoc.com/blog/does-adwords-really-work

    just noticed something weird happening now with ads for websites on google search pages. the sponsored ad websites that relate to my search at the top of the page wont respond to clicking on them, it’s just static and stays on the search page.
    After many clicks nothing happens, I’m not taken to any web page.
    Is google adding these clicks up and charging the clients accordingly?

    if they are ripping them off hard out.
    It seems really odd how this quite often happens.

    could really boost revenue couldnt it? repeated clicks. maybe i should contact the companys directly and inform them of this.

    I’ve actually caught Google ripping off me. I make about $50 a month from adsense across 12 webzines, all “clean” original content and nothing black hat. Had them for a few years and it pays the hosting, which is fine with me.

    One month, for some reason, Google mailed me a check instead of doing the usual electronic deposit. Where I live in Europe, it cost about $75 to cash a check, so when I contacted them, they told me to wait 80 days for the check to expire, and they would credit my account in the next billing cycle. This was a check for 138 euros.

    Then in Sept. of that year, they notified me that they were suspending my site because the word “prostitute” was in an article (seriously, it was an anti-trafficking in women artilcle). This same form letter was received by some other high level sites, including titanic.com (too many instances of the word “tit”) golf.com (too many XXX, as in clothing sizes), rawfood.com (raw is a sex term) and some toys online site (toys are a sex term too). We all ended up on the same forum thread to get reinstated, and seems the new google filter was set too sensitive). So I had less than $10 in earning that month, meaning i didn’t hit the threshold for a payment, but the previously issued check was recredited to my account, putting it over the threshold for payment. But when they went to reissue the payment, they deducted about $25 for “suspected invalid click activity”!!! This was from the earnings of a payment they had ALREADY VETTED AND ISSUED months before. There wasn’t even $25 in activity that month, cos my adsense WAS OFF!!

    I wrote repeatedly to the forum, and some google employee wrote that i “must have done something wrong because google doesn’t make mistakes”. No, they just rip off their publishers on purpose.

    But, they’re a monopoly, what can you do?


    PS: I too once had an article that went viral, about the BP oil spill (I met the rig owner in budapest and he told me the morning before it hit the news). That site went from about 10 hits a day to MILLIONS, and I made over $1300 in adsense… but google then sent me a letter saying they were refunding the advertisers (yeah, right) because of the suspicious nature of the of the traffic. Seems becoming instantly popular is a no no in google’s world.

  3. same thing happened to me…. yesterday I posted around 4+ articles on my blog and shared all 4+ post on social media…Guess what Google Disabled my adsense account….

    Now I filed an appeal form lets see when they reply

    Same thing happened to me. I made R5,088.05 South African Rand. that;s around about $500 give or take a few. One day before I need to finalize any settings I get this standard message:



    With our advertising programs, we strive to create an online ecosystem that benefits publishers, advertisers and users. For this reason, we sometimes have to take action against accounts that demonstrate behavior toward users or advertisers that may negatively impact how the ecosystem is perceived. In your case, we have detected invalid activity on your site and your account has been disabled.

    We’re limited in the amount of information we can provide about your specific violation. We understand this can be frustrating for you, but we’ve taken these precautionary measures because intentional violators can use this information to circumvent our detection systems.

    In some cases, publishers can make significant changes to correct the violation and are willing to comply with the AdSense program policies (google.com/adsense/policies). For this reason, we offer an appeals process as an opportunity to work with you to resolve the issue. To help you with the process, we’ve created a list of the top reasons for account closure for you to review before submission at http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=2660562.

    • Anon on May 8, 2014 at 10:44 am

    Makes what this guy is saying a lot more credible about how they operate internally about how they scam people:



      • Joseph on March 27, 2015 at 8:04 am

      Thank you. WHAT an eye-opener and something I suspected for a while. Reminds me of dealing with freaking Craigslist..

  4. Great Post and very Detailed! Thanks!

    I like to see more about Google Adwords n Google adsense

  5. Back in 2005 I made $700 with adsense but it took a fucking year. I pubished a site about Paris Hilton and it got traffic, lots of trafic and I would get gocery money every couple months, ya know like $130 or $150 every now and then, it was nice. Right around 2008 they funneled it own to like a penny for the month, literally one cent. They contol it all, you are t their mery waiting or a theshold. I say thresholds suck!
    How about we spin it around and the advertiser desntvay googe until they meet a threshold fr adverising results? They would never do that, they are in court evey month being sued, in fact theit legal team s so agressive, I had to use a fake name to publish tjisbino cuz my accountvis just belw their bullshit threhold.

    Join a legit pogram like LinkShare, they will send smaller checks, but at least they keep coming.
    Adsense used to be good, but Google hired some people who have no respect for Americans and they will just play you,, not pay you, all while while they earn on your coatails on your server.

    • Joseph on March 27, 2015 at 7:47 am

    Yeah they screwed me to, I was so angry I swore I would never use Adsense again because of their lying behavior.. I am looking for the day there is a Class-Action suit against Google for their fraudulent practices….

    Also, Youtube as well… I’ll use my OWN affiliate ads, that’s the way to go..

      • Scambuster on September 17, 2015 at 9:30 am

      Please contact us concerning this matter. We can discuss a group (class) action against the aforementioned party that allegedly defrauds its partners. Please also email others.

    My youtube site has almost 3 million views and my stupid google adsense account only has 13 dollars in it, I am supposed to be making 1-20 dollars a day, I get at least 3,500 views on my videos a day. This system is slavery

  6. They owe me $178.00, won’t pay. I filled out all the info, they sent me a pin number, I entered the pin and it don’t work, if you enter it 3 times then they have to send you another one, that I never got and probably wouldn’t work either anyway.
