I got back my Google Adsense account back
I lost my Google AdSense account several years ago for invalid click activity. I got the following Google AdSense message.
Your AdSense account for this login is currently disabled. We recommend checking your email inboxes for any messages we may have sent you regarding your account status.

It was no direct fault of my own. In fact I believe I was sabotaged by a friend. I think he may have done something — I do not know what — to generate invalid clicks simply to screw my new options in business.
There are a lot of folks making money online claiming they can help you get your Google AdSense account back. The reality is if you purchase any of these so called tools or books to get your account back, you likely are wasting your money.
There are two ways to get a Google AdSense account after your account was disabled for invalid clicks. I tried only one because I wanted to have my original name vindicated.
The first option is to create a completely different persona with no connections to the offending websites or person. You could create an LLC, Corporation, etc. and open an account in that name.
The second option is to beg like hell for that Google AdSense account reinstatement as you attempt to show that you were not guilty or directly responsible for what caused you to lose your Google AdSense account. Ultimately, there are human beings at Google AdSense.
I chose the latter. It took me over 6 or 7 years of persistently appealing my case. The last appeal that I made, I felt it in my gut that I was getting through. After-all, I used many other services successfully for years without incident including some that themselves used Google services.
I got the following reinstatement email from the Google AdSense team.
Thank you for clarifying your situation. We’ve reviewed your circumstances and have reinstated your account, effective immediately. Please note that there will be a delay of up to 48 hours before our servers are informed of the update and ads start running on your website again.
If you are a YouTube publisher and advertising does not resume on your videos after 48 hours, you may need to re-associate your YouTube and Adsense accounts by following the steps detailed here: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/72866?hl=en.
For your reference, we’ve included some short guidelines to assist you in preventing invalid clicks in the future.
It is against our program policies for website publishers to click on the ads on their own webpages, or to encourage others to do so. In addition, the use of automated techniques to generate clicks, such as robots or scripts, is prohibited. For YouTube publishers, when viewing your videos, you must skip the ad so that advertiser costs are not artificially inflated unintentionally.
If you want to click the ads to check the landing pages or view more details about the ads, use the Google Publisher Toolbar. The Toolbar will allow you to check the destination of ads on your page without the risk of invalid clicks. For more information, please visit http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=2411951.
If you clicked the ad to ensure that we’re reporting clicks on your ads, rest assured that we log all clicks on Google ads, so there’s no need to test. However, it may take up to 24 hours to finalize clicks and impressions in your reports.
In addition, please be sure to review and remain in compliance with our Terms and
Conditions and program policies:

So what is my advice if you are innocent? Keep trying the appeals. I did the following.
- I appealed about once a month for about 6 months, then once a quarter subsequently.
- During my time of being disabled, I established other relationships with programs similar to Google AdSense from other companies as I made sure to follow the rules.
- As I made my Google AdSense appeals, I included companies that I have been working with flawlessly including those based on other Google companies.
Ultimately it should work and it did work for me. If one is innocent it is imperative that one be persistent. Google AdSense is a great ad serving tool and the rates are some of the best – and I have tried them all – so it is worth your time to get your Google AdSense account reinstated and try to prevent any occurrences that could put the account in jeopardy going forward.
I am sure that you will get your account faster than I did if you establish successful relationships with other ad companies that provide an implicit positive reference on your honesty.
