Micheal Kleber(Google Engineer) Yes, it is fine to load adsbygoogle.js only once. That's certainly how I would do it for a web page I was designing: load it just once from <head>. It's only included directly in the AdSense snippet to make it as easy as possible for people to copy-and-paste the HTML. Goran is right that loading it multiple ...

Google does not have a strict standard of spacing of Adsense advertisement in a pixel by pixel sense. The purpose of the 'adequate spacing' terminology is so that users do not confuse navigation elements or content of your website with advertisements. If your AdSense Banner was on the Navigation bar for example and was indiscernible from content or other ...

I think @media-queries are simpler. You load the two ad units and under 768px you hide one and show the other. This is valid. The solution you are using is good but as you insert the new ad unit under 768, you also need to remove the other. This guide from Google explains what you can't do: Hiding ad units at anytime (e.g., display:none), unless ...

Adsense policies are clear about sexual content, ads cannot be displayed next to such content. I guess they don't make a difference between porn and scientific sex conversations. If I were you, I would stop doing it right now, or you might be banned from AdSense.

Just some ideas to consider: You only use the word "video" once. You use the word "game" twice. Switching the focus from guns to game (or "gaming guns") might help to achieve your goal. You could also reformat the site so that the guns are separated into which levels you can access them in, or what/where in the game you have to do to get the gun. That ...

Encouraging them to disable AdBlock doesn't mean you're encouraging them to click the ads. There's a big difference. I wouldn't worry about that and give it a try, though I doubt you'll have any success with that method.

Google requires that sites be up and running with a representative sample of content before they are approved for Google AdSense. At least 30 pages of content (for example 30 blog posts) with complete sentences and paragraphs Enough text content for content matching to work (not just images, videos, or Flash) No "under construction", "beta", or "coming ...

Yes, you should be able to use Lumen (formerly Chilling Effects) to look up the DMCA complaint against your site and see who filed it. If it's a my competitor I would fill the counter DMCA request. I wouldn't. Filing a false request can have some negative repercussions for you.

I had the same problem and I resolved it. Google sends crawler to visit your site. It´s automatic robot control, not human control. Your rejection is also automatic from this crawler. If you want see what crawler really gets when he visits your site, you must using some text web browser like Lynx. After using this browser, I saw what my problem was: The ...

This was asked on the Google product forums. The best answer there says that it is not allowed due to the "unnatural attention to ads" clause in the AdSense placement policies: Publishers are not permitted to bring unnecessary or unnatural attention to their Google ads.

Adsense clicks and views are not in real time (they seem to be updated at set periods through the day). Also, there is a possibility that somebody (or more than one person) loaded the page before midnight and then clicked on one of the adverts after midnight. Possible example: User loads the page at 11.30pm. The user's attention drifts to another tab or ...

You say that there are page speed requirements but they are actually recommendations, guidelines, and best practices. Most of the time, you would do better to follow the advice, but there are times when the advice is inappropriate or not worth the effort. You don't need to get a perfect score. Any score about "80%" is probably good enough. For search ...

To prevent the page from reloading you simply need to return false; from your runscript function: function runscript(){ .... return false; } That will prevent the link from actually triggering the href when the JavaScript handles the action instead. There will be no jumpiness and the page will not reload. If you can't edit the function itself, ...

There is one prohibited practice from the AdSense policies that could apply here: Formatting content to mimic ads Publishers may not implement Google ads in a manner that disguises the ads in any way. This includes formatting neighboring content to look similar to the ads. If a publisher places ads on non-Google search results pages, there must be a ...

First suggestion: pause all Google ads before your account gets locked down because Google is not known for reopen any closed AdSense accounts. Second I would suggest checking your theme with the Theme Authenticity Checker. It scans all theme files for potential malicious code. Third: Try to find out if you receive bad traffic like Josip already mentioned ...

Here is Google’s own definition for RPM https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/112030?hl=en As you can see it’s perfectly normal that your RPM is still zero since you haven’t gotten any earnings and therefore zero divided by whatever number of page views will always be zero.

There is nothing you need to do. At the end of the billing cycle they will take it out based on their own criteria. See example below: Its the line item called "Invalid Traffic" that I highlighted in green. These statements can be found under Payments menu item.

Google does not publish clear guidelines about how much ad space is acceptable above the fold for organic search engine rankings. I really wish Google would do so. The best guidance we have gotten is when Matt Cutts said that a post-it-note sized ad on a desktop site should be acceptable. My biggest site has been effected by every update of Google's top ...

You are only allowed to have one Google AdSense account. Just having multiple accounts is a violation of the terms of service that can get your accounts shut down. When you have invalid clicks on your account Google almost never allows you to re-active an account. I'm afraid that you have burned your bridges with Google and will not be able to use AdSense ...

According to this Google Policy: Publishers are permitted to make modifications to the AdSense ad code so long as those modifications do not artificially inflate ad performance or harm advertisers. Loading Ad. script on Window load event in no way breaches this agreement. So by this one sentence alone, you can be sure that it is allowed. Also, according ...

Yes, this URL https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/6307124?hl=en clearly allows you to edit responsive ad units as well as link units. It works great but make sure you dont hide any part of ad partially or fully and comply with other Adsense terms and conditions.

Google doesn't give explanations on how they show ads, what are the criteria to target audience etc. Like how they just cancel adsense accounts, demonetize youtube channels even when they are years old. I cross checked if the ads on Chinese website open in new tab or not, I even used Chinese IP, to my utter surprise I couldn't find many Chinese blogs that ...

Google considers that you're responsible for the content displayed on your site... period.

The example you gave is not really a "scraper site". Scraper sites as I understand them, scrape full content and re-host it illegally.

Scraped content infringes on the copyright of the owners of that content. Google ...

...it would only serve 300x600 once, and the other two will be 300x250. It's generally not a good idea to define ads at these sizes, especially if your ads are located "above the fold", meaning in the section of the page a user can see before scrolling. Additionally, you will need to have a lot of content on your page to even qualify for such setup and have ...
