Recently, I received an e-mail stating that my Google AdSense has been disabled to one of my websites due to policy violation. 2 weeks prior to this I received a warning e-mail stating the same policy violation. I made some modification but unfortunately “Policy Specialist” ad Google AdSense still not satisfied.
The problem is “LAYOUT ENCOURAGES ACCIDENTAL CLICKS.” Luckily, Google allows me to appeal after make a modification to comply with the policy.
These were what I’ve modified.
- Add more space between AdSense ads website content.
- Avoid placing AdSense ads close to navigation menu.
- Change AdSense ads texts & links other color that does not match the color of website theme.
- Add border/box to AdSense ads, so that the ads clearly visible.
- Remove, AdSense ads from page that does not have much value such as “Disclamer” and “Contact” page.
- Remove some AdSense ads from page that have little content so that the page display nicely.
After I’ve done, I went ahead and make an appeal by explaining what I’ve done to comply to AdSense policy. 2 days later, I received another e-mail from Google stating that they are happy with my modification & enable the ads serving.
Below was the e-mail copy from Google AdSense.
