Re: Google: Banned For Invalid Clicks!

Well, an update... Finally got a reply to my appeal: Hello, Thanks for providing us with additional information. However, after thoroughly reviewing your account data and taking your feedback into consideration, we've re-confirmed that your account poses a significant risk to our advertisers. For th...

Re: Google: Banned For Invalid Clicks!

I've reread the user agreement and I think that Gleasonator may be right. The way it reads (to me anyway) is they want to keep you from having a page that is all ads. It makes sense, as long a folks go to a page, there is no reason there can't be ads on it. If you have set up a page that is just ads...

Re: Google: Banned For Invalid Clicks!

You're absolutely right drathbun. I'm sure that, in Google's mind, they are doing what's best for them and their advertisers. Problem is, I really feel that they are breaching our contract. Too bad I'm in Canada and most of these folks who've had problems are in the U.S., A "class action" sort of th...

Re: Google: Banned For Invalid Clicks!

Thanks drathbun. Yeah, I don't hold out much hope for success. It just sucks to lose $135 of hard earned cash like that. Even if I had clicked my own banner (which I did not) all the rest of the income was valid and I should be paid for it. In fact, one guy clicked on a banner and actually bought a ...

Re: Google: Banned For Invalid Clicks!

I filed an appeal but haven't heard anything back yet (it's been a week). I was as diplomatic as I could be and offered to help them in any way that I could. I honestly have no idea what happened and am inclined to think it was a malicious attack, possibly from a banned member? I just doesn't seem f...

If you feel that this is an inappropriate topic, by all means close it. I certainly won't take offense.

Google: Banned For Invalid Clicks!

I signed up, added the banner to the top of my page and over the period of a few months, built up $135! Waiting for my very first cheque and I get an email saying that I was banned for invalid clicks! :cry: I didn't click the links myself. I didn't promote anyone else clicking the links and I didn't...

Re: Can't Add IPs To Ban List

I didn't even check to see if that was the case with mine. I wonder if the IP ban just isn't working? I did finally solve my problem. I was adding an IP list, accumulated from another site. It is an IP list of known spammers. When I scanned through it, I saw that the list had full IPs and a few part...

Re: Can't Add IPs To Ban List

Come on guys...Please?

I'm starting to feel like that ass that everyone ignores because he's breaking the rules and no one wants to tell him. :?

Re: Can't Add IPs To Ban List

If folks aren't answering me because I'm using the wrong procedure, can someone at least let me know, so I can use the correct procedure. The last thing I want to do is be that idiot that posts in the wrong place. ;)

Re: Can't Add IPs To Ban List

Is there some code I can paste here so someone can see if it's a code problem? I'm not even sure which file to start in.

Re: Can't Add IPs To Ban List

Thanks so much for your reply.

I did the auto upgrade. Everything seemed to go fine and the board is running without any issues...Just this one problem. I need to add some IPs to the ban list, and they just won't go in.

Re: Can't Add IPs To Ban List

I'm bumping this, but I did wait the six hours requested by the rules. (Actually, I waited for almost 8 hours.) If this is a bug and not something I've done, I'd be more then happy to fill out a bug report. I'm just not sure if this is something I've done or a common problem (although I'm sure it's ...
