There are many reports of AdSense publishers being banned by AdSense and often not given the cause of the suspension. They are also not given only limited chances for appeal. This post is about my own experience and the experience of others who have their account suspended.

In my case, I have not had my account suspended, but have came close to it. I received warning letters that my account have been receiving invalid clicks or impressions (can't remember which one, or if it had been specifically specified). Anyway, I used to be a member of an auto-surf program, and although I have stopped using it for a long time, somehow, I was still receiving hits from that site (I have statcounter installed in all my blogs, so I can tell from where my traffic is coming from. It will be good for you to install a traffic counter for your site.) For instruction on how to install statcounter, see How to track visitors to your blog.) I immediately wrote to the owner of the auto-surf program to ask them to remove me from their service. I never got a response. Luckily, I managed to find out how to disable my auto-surf account myself. I replied to the warning letter, saying I have disabled the auto-surf program, and asked if there is still anything that may not be in compliance with the TOS. All I receive was what seem to be a canned reply. But anyway, my AdSense account is still active.

Once your account is suspended, the chances of it being reactivated again is very slim, but not zero. Here are a few links to sites that detailed the experiences of those who got their account back, and how they did it, and also some sites which offer some good tips on how to appeal. Hope it help you.

AdSense Bowling
An account of how an enemy can get you banned from AdSense. If you are an AdSense publisher, try not to make enemies. Example of how an enemy can get you ban. Get your AdSense scripts from the source codes of your sites, including your Google AdSense identity, place it on sites that violates AdSense TOS, etc. Sometimes, it is not even necessary to go to that length. All he has to do is to go to one of your sites and click on the ads repetitively. Moral of the story: DON'T MAKE ENEMIES.

If your account was disabled for invalid clicks, here is the contact form for you to appeal for reinstatement: Appeal

Contact Form for reporting AdSense invalid clicks

This is for those whose account have not been suspended but have accidentally clicked on their own ads or have reasons to suspect that there are invalid clicks being generated. In such cases, it is always better for you to let AdSense know first rather than for them to find out about it later. Here is the contact form for reporting invalid clicks:
