In this post, I am sharing my experience what I faced with Google AdSense when they disabled my account and how I reinstate my account. Yes, it’s the real story.
Google AdSense account disabled
I was earning as good as you with Google AdSense, and I am happy with my earnings, but one day I got a mail from Google AdSense that your account is disabled because of invalid click.Invalid click I have not clicked on my ads how can Google disable my account, what about my earning, I got cheated Google can’t do so I will see them, this is unfair.
How my AdSense account was Reinstate
As I told my account was disabled by Google.
I thought Google don’t want me to earn. They war unhappily by clicks I was getting. I quickly appeal for my disabled account without much information provided to Google AdSense, and I do not get any response in 3-4 days, and I thought I have loosed my money, but I asked myself what went wrong when I have not clicked on my ads.
After some deep thinking what could have gone wrong I thought I got the reason why Google AdSense was feeling about invalid click and I re-appealed for my disabled account I write to them:
There can be few reasons which look like invalid click on my site.
If you feel that most of the clicks come within an hour, then there is a reason, one of my AdWords campaigns starts at 5 PM (this campaign is running for more than 6 months). That campaign brings more than 150 visitors at a time so most of the clicks and impressions come at that time which can look like click fraud. I can show you the proof of my campaigns, and if you do not trust me, then I will try asking Google AdWord team to send you the data of my campaigns.
I track my earnings and spending (on the advertisement) daily, and I had not found any earning growth until 20 May 2007. If invalid clicks are found on 21 May 2007, then the only reason can be that someone (my rivals or any crazy guy) wants me to get out from Adsense program. Please try to understand there is no source of getting to know who made invalid click on my site and you do not provide us the data so it is very difficult to know who has made an invalid click.
I am working with Adsense for more than a year, but I have never click on the ads on my site. I am totally aware of Terms and Condition and Program Policy of Google AdSense program.
If you have found any invalid activity on any day, then I am not interested in that day earning, but when I have not done anything wrong, then I request you to look after my problem. I am ready to answer any of your questions; I am ready to meet Adsense team or can talk to you regarding this problem.
After two days I got the mail from Google AdSense:
As you know, Google treats instances of invalid click activity very seriously. We have reviewed your circumstances and have reinstated your account, effective immediately. However, there will be a delay before ads start running on your website. It may take up to 48 hours before all of our servers are informed of the change.
Thank you for clarifying your situation. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, please feel free to respond to this email.

So that’s how my Google AdSense account was reinstated.
I just want to say if you are not doing any invalid activity with Google AdSense program and your account is disabled then first look at what went wrong, what can be done after clearing your view then appeal for my disabled account with as much as possible information which can prove you right.
