    I'm old. And a cynical old at that. Was there an ability to reply to that email? Could it be a spoof to get you to give them your information so they could fix the problem?

    I agree with Jerry, verify that it is real (for a start, are google ads still displaying on your sites?)

    no the ads are gone...and I think the email is legit as the ads are no longer there.... here's part of the email I received

    While going through our records recently, we found that your AdSense
    account has posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers. Since
    keeping your account in our publisher network may financially damage
    our advertisers in the future, we've decided to disable your account.
    thanks

    Big Money strikes again!

    I'm really questioning googles "Do no evil" policy. Since they went public, everything is about money.

    I just send them an email asking the specifics, but I doubt they will even bother with an answer.... I wonder if it could be some of the content of my site which is hacking related {black hat}.... then again I've seen plenty of site with controversial content and they still have adsense..... is there another alternative to adsense?
    thanks

    I could of sworn there was a thread from a year or two ago on here about people experiencing Google terminating their account before a payout. I searched around but I couldn't find it.

    I would recommend seeing if there is a way to contact Google to get a more specific reason out of them.

    Do you have a lot of traffic. What I'm getting at is that if you get a lot of clicks to visitor ratio they will probably ban your account. Since you are running analytics, they know all that information. So if they even suspect tampering, then they drop you.

    Another issue is some of the keywords that appear on your page e.g., hacking, firewall and security all used in succession in your tag cloud might look oddly suspicious. Maybe more so that you are using
    Code:
    <meta name='robots' content='noindex,nofollow' />
    Stop making things so hard on yourself.

    even if is true what you're saying about my site showing hacking content instead of security...I think I should've get a warning...besides when most ppl do a search online, related to computer security, it usually is the word "hacking" and not "auditing"... in my opinion
    thanks

    I would imagine it is the content of your site then, the rules are fairly specific with regards what you can and cannot talk about.

    A warning would be nice, but then think of the millions of websites they deal with daily, there is no way they could realistically keep track of a warnings system - if they deem the site to have broken the rules, and they have said they operate a no warning policy, then bam, you are gone.

    It sucks, and I hope it gets rectified for you!

    I remember those posts about being dropped before the first paycheck. I'm thinking it's an urban legend deal where someone is trying to scare adsense users. They will freeze the account if someone goes in and clicks the links over and over again to increase clicks.

    If I were you, I would sit it out for a couple of weeks and see what happens.
    Perhaps they will reply with a better explanation.

    Can you still log into your adsense account?

    Make sure it is really google. Also check if you didn't accidently click your ads too much. That would make them cancel it.

    If by "too much" you mean "at all" then yes, that would make them cancel it.

    If google catches you clicking on your own ad even once they can ban your account, and I say that is a good thing.
