List Of Blog Topics That Are Against Google Adsense TOS Policies
Google Adsense is a pay-per-click program that serves as a major source of revenues to millions of bloggers locally and internationally. This programme is being hosted by Google, and many people find it very hard to be accepted by Google into Adsense.
Many people that got accepted, later found their Adsense accounts disabled or banned. Most of them don't have a clue on why Google disabled their accounts. This is because they have violated Google Adsense TOS policy.
Google disable Adsense accounts for some reasons. Your account will be disabled or banned as a result of a malicious actions, like invalid click activities. Your account could be banned if you are writing contents that are not appreciated by Google Adsense.
In this article, we will be looking at the topics that Google Adsense frowned at, which may result in getting your account banned or disabled very quickly.
Sometimes, Google AdSense rejects a site outright. This happens due to inadequate or inappropriate content mostly. And sometimes, Google AdSense accounts get disapproved or banned after approval.
=>> Adult Content - Adult, pornographic and sexually explicit content is not allowed. The general rule of thumb is, if some content isn't appropriate to be viewed with family and especially kids, then it's not appropriate to be placed with Google Ads. Google intends to keep the AdSense network family-safe
=>> Copyrighted material - Content that violates the copyright law is strictly against Google's TOS. If you don't have permission to distribute some content, such as mp3 songs or videos, then you are violating AdSense TOS, and most definitely will end up getting banned.
=>> Drugs and other addictive material - Google prohibits putting up Ads on pages that sell or promote illegal or prescription drugs, especially narcotics that are addictive. Herbal drugs aren't allowed either. Additionally, you cannot put ads next to content relating to hard alcohol, beer, liqueur, tobacco or tobacco related products such as cigarettes
=>> Gambling - Ads may not be placed next to content relating to gambling or betting that involves exchange of money and/or other prizes
=>> Hacking / cracking - A lot of people have sprung up with blogs and websites providing instructions, or distributing software that is involved with hacking or cracking another software or website to grant users with illegal access. Such content is strongly disproved by AdSense.
=>> "Pay-To" Sites - Sites that offer compensation for some action, such as Pay-to-Click, where users get paid for each action they perform such as clicking an ad, browsing some pages, reading some emails, and so on, are not allowed to display ads. This is because it might result in an invalid click activity
=>> Violence - Such sites are not allowed to display Google ads that display violence, such as images or videos with freak accidents, gore, fighting, and torture. Such content isn't family-safe, and hence is classified as inappropriate
=>> Content biased against individuals or organizations - Although Google supports freedom of speech, it does not allow ads to be placed alongside content that is aimed against an individual or organization, including hate content or racism.
=>> Google brand features - You can not use Google Brand features on your website, such as copying Google's layout, framing a Google's service such as Google finance, using Google's trademarked terms in a domain name (such as www.googletips.com etc)
=>> Weapons - Google ads are not permitted on sites that sell, facilitate or advocate the sales of weapons and weapon accessories, including ammunition, gun parts, hardware, pistols, rifles, BB guns, sporting guns, air guns, etc. Explosives and fireworks are blacklisted by AdSense as well
