I’ve never run advertising on the Health Business Blog, but just for kicks I decided to sign up with Google to let AdSense place ads on my Feedburner RSS feeds. I figured since I have 8000+ RSS subscribers maybe I could earn a few dollars without cluttering up the blog itself. After a couple days Google suspended my AdSense account –didn’t really tell me why, although the implication was that some kind of click fraud was going on. How that would be happening I have no clue.
I appealed the suspension, and got this note in reply:
Thank you for your appeal. We appreciate the additional information you’ve
provided, as well as your continued interest in the AdSense program.
However, after thoroughly re-reviewing your account data and taking your
feedback into consideration, our specialists have confirmed that we’re
unable to reinstate your AdSense account.
As a reminder, if you have any questions or concerns about your account,
the actions we’ve taken, or invalid activity in general, you can find more

Sad to say it looks like I won’t be able to retire off my AdSense earnings after all and will have to find some other way to pay my bills!November 17, 2010
