Don’t risk getting banned by Google Adsense and kicked out of Google

This will serves as a warning to all bloggers who write for money:

One of our Bloggers today lost 6 of their Blogs because they were kicked out of Google because they tripped a duplicate content filter. You need to be very careful and make sure that all the posts you write are unique.

1) So, folks, those of you who write paid post should ponder if it is worth putting Google Adsense on your blog. I have taken my Google Adsense out of a few blogs that I write mostly for paid posts. Hehehe, you don’t see it linked on my sidebar here.

2) Never, ever make duplicate sites which Google referred as mirror sites. Google will not only ban you from Google Adsense, they will also take your URL out of their searches. This is equivalent being buried six feet under in the cyberspace.

3) In the Google Adsense TOS, they had stated that they don’t take too kindly to sites having too many advertisements. Well, this is quite debatable because I see that many of the A-list bloggers do have many advertisements. Take Michael Arrington for example? Those blocks of banners on the sidebar is like 9 altogether. So, what exactly is too many advertisement? Well, I don’t bother with ads programme that does pay or work. I will try for a couple of months and if they don’t earn me a decent income, then, take it off.

So, play safe! Don’t break the law!

    thanks for reminding! I didn’t check out that entry. Better go and remove the adsense in my Blogsome blog. It’s not making any money anyway.

    AhPek – Ya, safer to do so. I got like 1-2 bucks from the old blogspots so I removed them already.

    Samm – Duplicate means exactly the same thing. Some snakey people go and sign up three accounts and then, write one post and posted it on three blogs. Like ours, not considered duplicate. If we move an old blog over and continue writing on the new one, I think it is not a duplicate but expansion. Hehehe.
