I was messing around with a few of my sites, increasing the # of them that had ads on them, et cetera, and my AdSense account got disabled for invalid clicks.

Appeal denied. Forever. Period.

"Please note that Google may disable your account for any reason."

This happened to me, as well. Is there any way to test all this crap out without generating invalid clicks? Beats me.

The whole ordeal convinced me that I'd be a terrible internet marketing engineer.

Apparently, they have a Preview Tool which allows you to view your page (non-frames) and click links without triggering formal clicks. In the "Why was I disabled" they have some references to it.

I think the T&C violation is speciied in:
"You shall not, and shall not authorize or encourage any third party to: (i) directly or indirectly generate queries, Referral Events, or impressions of or clicks on any Ad, Link, Search Result, or Referral Button (including without limitation by clicking on âœplayâ for any video Ad) through any automated, deceptive, fraudulent or other invalid means, including but not limited to through repeated manual clicks"

Damn. I posted a reply but it got eaten by LJ lag.

They have a preview tool now:

This is apparently what you're supposed to use. It's a modified version of Google Toolbar

No ability to comment on it, and with some false statements with regards to their T&C.

Their T&C: https://www.google.com/adsense/terms
T&C says "repeated manual clicks" counts as prohibited use and can be grounds for suspension. Further, if you don't generate enough valid clicks over a 2 month period, they can terminate your account.

*sigh*

Basically, too small to be worth the effort. They already spent all the money they might earn off of me, so they're cutting losses.

Oh, hello me. Your post wasnt lost, so you've double posted.

Well, that's stupid. And so are you. You forgot an apostrophe on your "was not" contraction.

Yah, whatever. You're an ass. And you stink. And you're an AdSense reject. Looser.

Why the hostility? And I'm not a loser nor am I looser. I'm telling my mom.

Your mom's dead, grammar Nazi.

JOSH I WENT THROUGH THE EXACT SAME THING!!!!

ok.. yeah.. they denied my site and TOOK ALL MY MONEY out of my adsense account, it wasn't much, a couple hundred but still. it really pissed me off cause I have alot of legit clicks and i didn't do anything to make them disable it. *sigh* i'm switching to a new ad network though.

Let me know who you pick. I'm not high traffic, but still...

It really depends.. There are ad networks geared to niche sites. One i've had minor success with is adroll, you should look into it!

there's also adify but it's a large network

So sad. Adroll is no longer accepting publishers.

Adify is owned by Cox now, so I may be too tiny, but I submitted a request anyway. we only get about 3000 impressions per month.

I had no idea about adroll.. that sucks!
