It has been quite a rollercoaster...
It has been awful since the ban but it seems to be recovering now. Perhaps someone finds this interesting or can even post some tips.
I know, it's frustrating, but you can succeed.How did you get your ban lifted, and how did you go about finding all the content that may put you in harm's way with them?
I was booted about 2 years ago, and they mentioned everything from pictures to cursing. Whenever they would send a specific URL I would always erase / edit it within minutes, but then one day they started flagging posts that were 5, 6, 7 years old then just booted me. Grrr. I have done several appeals, all to no avail.
During the months before the ban, Adsense brought in between €2-3K a month, it looked like going to a steady €100/day. After re-approval it went down to €30/day or so. Currently still not at €50/day. Since they changed the text ads to look more like ads instead of content, clicks are way down. Also traffic has not fully recovered since the domain change. I'll post an update here in a year or so.You will get more stable results once you earn several thousands each month. In regions of around $100 / month it always will be a roller coaster due to the way Google AdSense works. We see this too at our smaller sites.
it seam that you moved to responsive design after the seasonal spike, right?The big drop is when XF 1.2 came out and we moved to a responsive design.
Great.seems to be recovering now
Took another few weeks to alter the database to remove any instance of f*** and "sex".
the only difference I see are the spike that after 1.2 got lower than the the previous years... is traffic changed after that? impressions went down to or only clicks?
The easiest way to handle this kind of photo issue is to temporarily change permissions so guests cannot see images, only members. That will buy you time to find the offending ones and will make Google happy fast since they only view the site as a guest.
Correct, I know the TOS allows showing gross income, but I wasn't sure about this one, better safe than sorry...Great.
Hey you edited out the Y axis !
I saw it this morning.
Allowing both simply increases the bidders, that's always a good thing. Display-ads generally generate more clicks, though text ads can work well in some locations like right within content.Has anyone found that text only ads bring in more revenue? I earn a little more revenue by allowing both text and image ads.
Actually we tried this, Google then asked for a login so they could check.The easiest way to handle this kind of photo issue is to temporarily change permissions so guests cannot see images, only members.

Because I knew we were going to move to XF later on and it wouldn't be imported, better to clean it in the actual data.Why didn't you just use a replacement variable for the words? Would have taken you 5 minutes to remove those words.
...well that is the easy way, the other way (without censuring) is disable adsense in that specified pages.So in effect, you censored your community in order to appease Google?
