Only Google can say why your card was considered, "suspicious." This is usually because they believe it is fraudulent in some manner (for instance, it's not your card). Although the support page is somewhat vague on the details, it clear that they only do it when they think you're breaking the law by using that payment method. https://support.google.com/...

I believe the logic behind this statement is that because it's a bidding model the more ads you have the less they have to pay to appear on your page (IE if you only have 1 ad, then that slot is filled by the highest bidder, if you have 10 ads then the slots are filled by the 10 highest bidders, clicks on #10 could cost 0.10 whereas clicks on #1 could cost 3....

I'm not working at Google but from my experience I think there is no such algorithmic rule that would match higher cost ads with high traffic sites. First of all Google is interested in getting as much clicks as possible so it doesn't matter if it's a high or low traffic site. They try to display the ads with the most chances of getting clicked. So they ...

I can't answer all of your questions but I'll take a stab at some of them: As far as I know (and from what I've read), you can not disable likes, shares or comments on Facebook posts (or advertisements, for that matter). Facebook charges for non-website-related clicks (likes, shares, etc) because they give your advert more exposure (leading to organic views)...

According to this: http://adsense.blogspot.ca/2006/12/ad-and-image-placement-policy.html Google is advising publishers against aligning images to ads in a way where there the odds of a relationship between the two are good. What I would suggest is have text in-between the ads and the image ...

Like Google, Facebook adjusts its ad prices on a "quality score" that includes click through rate as a major factor. Here is a site that explains it: The click-through rate in itself is another factor that has impact on the Facebook ad prices. The higher CTR you can achieve, the greater chance you have of winning auctions. In an auction, Facebook’...

Reports on click-assisted and impression-assisted conversions: Often, the "last click" before a conversion gets all the credit. But along the way, other clicks and impressions might have guided your customers towards that conversion.

You can use GeoIP database and some GeoIP library for the language your site is build with to detect the country and then don't include the adsense code if visitors country matches one you don't like. But there really is no point in doing so. Artificiality increasing CPC by blocking poorly performing countries won't have any positive impact on your total ...

The domain I just registered the last week shows CPC of $5.34. Websites and domain software that sell domains, in particular expired domains, will often list a "CPC" (Cost Per Click) along side of them. The domain itself does not have any CPC value however, it's the keyword contained within the domain name, such as example being the keyword in example.com, ...

Sometimes, yes. Due to the fact, that Google can target its specific ads better and that the shown ads are focusing on the content the reader is interested in. Hence leading to more clicks, meaning more revenue for you. If you deliver broader topics, shown ads may be revelant to your site (for example PHP topics), but the content the visitor is interested ...

You need to understand that advertisers are expecting conversions for every click that you are sending them. They may have set daily limits and even monthly limits. When their budgets run out, your only option is to ...
