Why is it that most small publishers get banned? Is there something about small publishers that google does not like or that easily breaks their rules in some way? I have adsense and obviously do not want to get banned and dont want to get kicked out just for being the small guy.
I don't think it has to do with traffic that much the whole getting banned thing. Obvisouly everyone has to start at the beginning, this includes little to no traffic. From my experience with AdSense:
Started a blog, had to stop. Restarted had to stop. Started again...you get it. I had AdSense on it. Little to no traffic. Like LITTLE to NONE. LOL Made like $3 in what was that? a bunch of years. LOLOL Anyway, still have my account.
A friend started a blog. Goes to work, logs in to the work Wi-Fi, clicked on his ads. Goes to Mickey D's, same thing. When he's like at almost $10...guess who got banned?
Google Adsense runs ads on your blog, and depending on the content, they displayed the ads accordingly. You will get paid when people view the ads and if it leads to a sell, you get a percentage of it. It took me over a year with three blogs to get to my first $100 payout!
That is awesome. I have everything set up and all but it's just such an issue to get the time dedicated to these things. I'm already waking up at 415am and I still need more hours. I need money to pay a sitter to watch my king for a couple of hours here while I work...but I need the money...so I'm trying to work online...but I need a sitter to watch my king for a couple of hours here while I work....LOLOLOL
To the OP, you also have to keep in mind that there are two types of earning streams: AdSense for Content and Hosted AdSense for Content. You can check these out in your AdSense account and see which way you're earning more. In a way, at least for me, at the moment it doesn't matter because it's all going to one earnings account, but once everything falls into place it's something I want to keep an eye on to see which sites I'm earning more in.
