My forum has been suspended (not closed) by Adsense. We made changes and went back to them with an appeal but they have come back and said that there are still violations...We are a fairly large forum, with over 900,000 posts (Tech Support) and rely on the income from Adsense.
The violation that was cited (the link we were provided with) was a link posted, to a movie sharing site that the mods must have missed - 3 years ago. We have a stringent posting policy, so it is rare for this type of content to get onto the boards, and stay there.
We added a lot (over 60) of censor items and stopped ad serving on a particular forum that could be prone to having possibly dodgy links posted - an anti-virus fixing forum, where users post their logs.
My questions to you guys...
- Does anyone know how to properly assess the outstanding violations on such a large forum?
- As we are a fairly good Adsense earner, even though we don't have an account manager, is there a way to contact them and get more information?
- Is there a way for Google to provide further details, without lodging another appeal?
- Is there a paid service (for instance) that could look through the whole site and make recommendations as to why the violations are taking place?
I fully accept that if there are policies in place then they need to be adhered to. It's just knowing where the heck to start, in trying to find the violations?
