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.

Selecting an appropriate blogging platform is very important

Blogging may be an easy thing to do for those who are interested to get involved, but the real power behind blogging is the blog platform that you choose to write and publish your posts. Believe me, you would not want a platform that does not conform to your expectations or does not deliver the “goods”, so to speak. When you decide to start your own blog, there are many choices to be made. The very first choice is which platform to use. You’ll need to determine whether you would prefer a hosted or non-hosted blog platform.

Below I am listing the top five blogging platforms with a little of their details. Choose the one you think is right for you and be part of the huge blogging network today.

Namecheap’s new website redesign

I didn’t see it coming but when it hit me, I realised that I absolutely love the new redesign of Namcheap.com. In fact, the redesign is quite long overdue….they should have done this way earlier.

Here is the web design of Namecheap, prior to 2011.

This is the new redesign, conforming with current web design standards and Web 2.0 trends.

Despite the release of fresh air, I don’t understand why some people are complaining about it. Its quite beyond my ken to understand why anyone would dislike the new redesign and prefer the old, drab look.
