But if you are just like me with this sudden unexpected email from google adsense network team – “Ads serving to your website has been disabled” Here is detailed step-by-step guide and case study on how I was able to unblock google adsense code being disabled from displaying on three of my websites with two methods
- Using Google adsense reconsideration appeal form
- Changing my websites domain names
Lifting the Google Adsense ban on my websites was not actually easy at the initial time. Google adsense stopped serving ads to some of my websites July 27th this year precisely
When I got the usual unfriendly and disheartening email from Google, find the email snippet below
During a recent review of your account we found that you are currently
displaying Google ads in a manner that is not compliant with our program

After reading through the email, I know a catastrophic had struck my adsense html code on my websites network, I hurriedly rush over there to confirm it, yes it was true, huge empty white spaces on my website where adsense is supposed to be lying
At this point, my heart began to beat so fast as my adrenalin begins to pump rhythmically. I quickly did some Google searches to look for ways to provide solution to my already blocked and banned google adsense sites, I landed on this two websites:
Unlike my website, theirs (Ghack and Shoutmeloud) that were luckily reconsidered after attempting two (2) Google adsense website disabled reconsideration appeal form
Ghack blog case study was a bit different from MediaTechBlog as Martin Brinkmann’s blog got rejected initially, then after doing a vivid and a thorough scrutiny by deleting every web pages on his network (website) that were conflicting and not in compliance with Google adsense program policies
Martin then re-applied again and his reconsideration appeal request was favorably granted the second time and disabled ads serving on his website was restored back
My Innocent Ass Was Kicked and Screwed
I applied some of Martin Brinkmann’s blog adsense tips and tricks he used in getting back his adsense html code, but blocked and disabled ads serving my websites were never restored back by Google adsense team even after craftily composing my write up on the reconsideration / appeal form, I had only received one email notification and reply which stated that my appeal can’t be restored
I went back to my websites and I deleted over 50 posts some of which were not literally violating adsense program policies, but with a confused curious heart, I needed to take this holistic corrective measure just to ensure I get back disabled ads serving my site. I ensured there were no conflicting post/web pages whatsoever regarding
- How to download youtube videos
- Posts teaching your website visitors how cheat, steal from or leech other website content or intellectual properties
All of the above posts/articles types are strictly and stringently against Google adsense program policies.
What I Did to Get Back Disabled Ads Serving My Website
I did so many things to get back blocked and disabled ads serving my websites, so of the things I did are as follows
- Changing my web browser(s)
- Changing my internet connection service provider (ISP) since they all operate on different IPs
- I deleted all the cookies, caches and every other stored third-party items on my web browsers
- With no success, I eventually got my PC formatted, since Google are like ultimate virtual police.
All these I did in sequential and chronological order for the quest to restore back disabled ads serving my website, all of these conscientious attempts and efforts prove abortive and ended in absolute futility.
While the tussle between almighty Google and I lasted, I had already lost so much money (adsense earnings) as I was making much from adsense program.
I became psychologically and emotionally disturbed as this blood sucking detour in my financial and blogging plans became so much affected
Some Of The Options I Considered in My Confused State After Google Ads Serving My Website Was Shutdown
Powerless and defenseless me, I began to brood and ruminate deeply as to what my next step of action is gonna be? I considered the following thoughts
- Using other Google Adsense alternatives
- Selling direct ads space
- Forget about google adsense and money and just keep updating my blog with powerful personal concept and ideas driven original contents
- Change my domain name
My Results and Opinions After Doing the Above
First, I tried pretty wide range of Google adsense program alternatives like Adbrite, Chikita, Infolinks and Addynamo
To be perfectly honest in all fairness, none of these adsense alternative program networks is as good as Google in earnings. Besides using these adsense alternatives I also tried few clickbank products since I was not doing email marketing alongside, there was no result
Second, I tried my own personalized ads-space marketing also to no avail since my marketing strategy was weak and extremely un-responsive
Third, in addition to my second though, just to forget about google adsense and the money ambition aspect of blogging and just focus on frequently updating my blog, but as an entrepreneurial blogger, I dont think this whole idea appeals to my goals. Then i just have to scrap this thought
Fourth, After thoughtfully ruminating over the whole ideas, and after Google adsense team has refused to reply me, I was left with no other option than to change my domain name.
After putting my house in order by carefully and painstakingly cross-examining my websites , I went back to re-apply the second time and several more times, unfortunately for unlike Ghack and Shoutmeloud, I never got Google adsense html codes serving my websites back neither did I also receive a confirmation notification email if actually they got my re-consideration appeal request.
I did many things to restore disabled Google ads serving my site but to avail. Here is a complete step by step method on how I was able to restore my website and how you too can.
