My Google AdSense account has been disabled

For the past several years ever since I became an AdSense publisher in 2006, I have come across or read horror stories of those whose accounts have been disabled by Google for various reasons, ranging from “invalid clicks” to “risk for our advertisers”. I never thought that this would happen to me, because I felt confident that because I have always been in good standing with Google and have received payments from them for years, my account will never be at risk of being banned. Furthermore, I have never told anyone to click on my ads, or click on the ads myself in order to inflate my own earnings. This is simply because I don’t believe that one should kill the goose in order to get the golden eggs.

Today, however, whatever trust I had in Google is shattered, because to my utter horror and dismay, the dreaded “Your Google AdSense account has been disabled” message has come into my e-mail.

Google opens office in Malaysia

I never thought this day would come, but it has. Google has officially announced their setting up of an office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. According to reports, Google will also tailor current products such as Google Maps, Google News and Google Translate for local markets.

Google Southeast Asia chief Julian Persaud said Malaysia has one of the “highest percentages of usage of Google’s Web browser, Chrome, in Asia Pacific” together with 17 million Internet users from a population of 27 million.

“The online environment in Malaysia is growing rapidly, with significant developments in both broadband Internet access and e-commerce activities,” he told reporters.

“We are pleased to establish our newest operations in Kuala Lumpur, where we can draw from the highest quality local talent to further help users find the information they’re looking for,” he added.

Is this a sign that Google AdSense will eventually have Bahasa Melayu language support? I sure hope it does. It will empower a significant number of blogs in Malaysia, most of which are by bloggers writing in Bahasa Melayu and a fast-growing niche. I am sure a lot of Malaysians are eagerly waiting for the day to arrive.

Why Google Adsense is essential for your blogs

These days I have been neglecting my focus on optimising my Google Adsense position in my blogs, but I intend to rectify that soon as I come to the realisation that Adsense is essential for websites, especially those which contain a lot of content. The concept behind Adsense is relatively simple, as it involves inserting a Javascript code into a certain website or blog. Each time the page is accessed and shows a related link to a san francisco probate lawyer for example, the Javascript will pull advertisements from the Google Adsense program. The search engine is the one handling all the tracking and payments, providing an easy way for webmasters to display content-sensitive and targeted ads without having the hassle to solicit advertisers, collect funds, monitor the clicks and statistics which could be a time-consuming task in itself. It seems that there is never a shortage of advertisers in the program from which the search engine pulls the Google Adsense ads. Also webmasters are less concerned by the lack of information search engines are providing and are more focused in making cash from these search engines.
