    Just got this from Google.

    Hello,

    While reviewing your account, we noticed that you are currently displaying Google ads in a manner that is not compliant with our policies. For instance, we found violations of AdSense policies on pages such as www.mysite.com

    Publishers are not permitted to encourage users to click on Google ads or bring excessive attention to ad units. For example, your site cannot contain phrases such as "click the ads," "support our sponsors," "visit these recommended links," or other similar language that could apply to the Google ads on your site. Publishers may not use arrows or other symbols to direct attention to the ads on their sites, and publishers may not label the Google ads with text other than "sponsored links" or "advertisements."

    Please make any necessary changes to your web pages in the next 3 business days. We also suggest that you take the time to review our programme policies (https://www.google.com/adsense/policies) to ensure that all your other pages comply with these policies.


    Once you update your site, we will automatically detect the changes and ad serving will not be affected. If you choose not to make the changes to your account within the next three days, your account will remain active but you will no longer be able to display ads on the site. Please note, however, that we may disable your account if further violations are found in the future.

    Thank you for your cooperation.
    Sincerely,
    The Google AdSense Team

      No I know what it was. In the box on my site were I display the banner. The box title said "Sponsored Links" with sub text below it saying "Support the site". I've now changed that. Seems my wording was judged as misleading people into clicking them I think.

        Hi Gary, yes never do that.

        You are lucky they didnt just ban your account and gave u a warning.

        just make sure u have follow the TOS.

        PM me the URL of ur site so i can have a look at it. I have been with google adsense for almost 16 months now.

          My site link is in my signature.

          I've changed it now to read "Google Adsence" as the box header, with sub- text saying "Google adsence links" for the time being until I can think of a better wording that doesn't mislead. And emailed Adsence to ask them to check the site to see if thats OK now.

              Why are you not using google adsense banner format text adds under your forum navbar?

                I prefer to use text adds, never liked banner adds to be honest. Plus I'm trying to keep the site without hacks and template changes as much as possible for upgrading. I only have code in the forumhome template for my side bar and banner box, which makes it easy for me to update vBulletin when needed.

                  allright, but upgrading is not a problem in terms of google adsense, you can always put the code back in the template hehe.

                  But i feel what u mean. Just try to get your forum busy , and once u get loads of traffic you can start puting google banner adds

                  good luck

                      Thanks GB! for posting the email. I have always wondered about that if they just banned your account or they send out a warning email.

                        Was the problem with ' site advertisements ' or ' support us '

                        They ARE site advertisements right? .. it even has "ad" in their naming of google adsense.

                          The problem was the text I had before that said "Support us".
