The Google AdSense Team

According to this email, The AdSense team disabled Ad Serving on my website because of violations related to Hacking or Cracking.

How I Fixed this Issue.

After receiving the above email, I was very much upset and for once I thought that 'I won't be able to get back my Adsense account'. Google Adsense is the major monetization method for my website and is one of the major source of income from my website. I always tried my best following Adsense policies then what caused google disable ad serving to my site? It was time to think.

First of All, I reviewed my website and removed all the content which seemed to be violated. I removed the example post which was mentioned in the email by AdSense team. After a quick look through my website I thought everything is fine, I appealed Adsense team for Review. After about 3-4 days, I got another email from Adsense team saying that my site is still under violation and the ad serving can't be enabled. They advised me to again go through the website and fix the issue and they re-appeal. This was another shocking email for me.

I did a little Research on the issue and after hours of non-stop Googling I came across a page which helped me a lot. This page contains examples of Adsense violations.

Since violations on my website were related to Hacking/Cracking, I went through the Hacking Cracking section of this page. It gave me examples of prohibited content

After knowing 'What is acceptable' and 'What is not acceptable'. I went through each and every page of my website and removed unacceptable things. With Research I came to know that Linking to websites which violate adsense terms also causes violation. Then I went through most of the comments on my website and Deleted comments which linked to websites containing hacking stuff, This time I went through my website completely and removed all violated things. Another thing I found on my website was a Full version Serial key of a Software, This was another violation under hacking cracking. I immediately removed the serial key and made sure that nothing like this is present on my site. 

During this process, I removed
  • Links to websites not complying with Adsense or containing Adult content. 
  • All comments containing links to websites with unacceptable stuff.
  • Removed Full version serial key(s) and violated articles.

My Second Appeal to AdSense Team.

Now I was satisfied with my job and I was sure that my website is complying with Adsense. I took me another 4 days to do all this stuff and I had given my best. I appealed google to re-enable ad serving on my website, This was my second appeal. I messaged the using this page, In that message I explained Steps which i took to make my website comply with Adsense policies, I requested them to re-enable ad serving and I also assured them that this won't happen in future and I'll try my best to keep my website complying with their polices. Here is the exact message I sent to AdSense team.

Hey Adsense team,

I’m an Adsense publisher from about an year now and it has been one of the main monetization method for my blog. I make sure that I follow all the quality guidelines and best practices mentioned for Adsense. Couple of days back, I got an Email stating one of my content is violating Adsense Terms, and I removed the content immediately. But after few days I got another message stating that my blog is still under violation. This is my second appeal, I've removed all the articles which i suspected to be in violation and I also removed comments which were linking to some other websites. I also found that there were some unauthorised serial keys on one of my blog article and I immediately removed them. I tried my best to make my website in compliance with Adsense terms and I'm sure that i've succeded in it. I also assure you that this won't happen again in future.

Please re-review my blog and re-enable Ad serving.
