We have disabled Google AdSense ads from serving on your site

Google just sent you an email, and it's not to compliment you. Far from it, even since this missive actually sounds like a warning shot. The American giant has just deactivated the distribution of AdSense ads on your site because it does not respect its terms of use. And inevitably, you don't know what to do to reactivate them. Good news, this guide will help you catch up.

And be careful because this is not a purely theoretical article since the intactearnings was precisely pinned by Big G at the beginning of November. Why ? Because of the pornographic content displayed on certain pages, and therefore in certain articles.

We Have Disabled Google Adsense Ads From Serving On Your Site

Anyway, we fought a lot with Jérémy to resolve the problem and I thought it was still worth an article. Especially since I am not the only one to have been slapped on the fingers if I am to believe the exchanges I had with my blogger friends.

Phase 1: we coldly analyze the situation

I know it's not always easy, but the last thing to do is curl up under your desk crying and hoping Google realizes its mistake. On the other hand , if you want to get by, it will be better to avoid acting hastily and doing anything.

To begin with, it's not complicated, you will have to go through the email sent by Big G to determine the reasons that prompted him to take his measures.

The message in question ultimately consists of two parts. It begins with a summary of the problem, with an identifier, the name of the affected site and the example of a page that does not comply with the regulations. Below, you will have the detailed explanation and a (long) extract of the terms of use of the firm.

Chance does things pretty well and this part corresponds precisely to what you are accused of. At home, for example, I had the right to a long speech explaining to me that AdSense ads should not be displayed on pages whose content is reserved for an adult audience, or informed. This includes erotic accounts , sexual jokes , sexual or blasphemous terms, and crude language .

No doubt, Google knows the intactearnings well.

Phase 2: correct the problem and make sure that it does not arise again afterwards

There, normally, your first instinct will be to delete or modify the article given as an example.

It would be a terrible mistake. The worst thing you can do is actually censor yourself or try to remove the evidence Google has gathered. The firm doesn't want to prevent you from posting whatever content you want, it just wants its ads – and advertisers – not to be associated with boob photos. The nuance is important.

In addition, and as the message sent by the firm clearly states, the link given is only an example . What does it mean ? Quite simply that there may be other pages which are problematic. Yes, and if so, then you can be sure the Googlers have spotted them.

Before making your request for reconsideration, you will therefore have to dig into your site's archives. If it only has a few hundred items, you should go quickly. Bad luck, we are not very far from 16,000.

But in practice, how are we going to remove the ads from the problematic pages?

Simple, we will paste a specific keyword to them and we will then develop a script to remove the advertising inserts from all the articles associated with this tag. Jérémy has just coded one for the intactearnings and you can reuse it at home if you feel like it.

To put in the “functions.php” file:

 / * NSFW function - or whatever name you want. * / function isNSFW () { if (in_the_loop ()) { $ tags = get_the_tags ();
foreach ($ tags as $ tag) {
if ($ tag-> slug == 'your-tag')
return true; } }
return false;
}

To put in the “single.php” file, at the level of all your AdSense inserts:

 <? php if (! isNSFW ()) { ?>
Your adSense script <? php } ?>

Then, you will have to test each page, each article posing a problem. Remember to clear your site cache and your browser cache before you start.

Phase 3: we ask Google to review our site, and we cross our fingers

If everything is ready, if you are confident, then now is the time to ask Google to reconsider your site.

The procedure is not very complicated. You will need to click on this link and complete the form designed by Google. In particular, it will ask you to indicate the URLs that you have modified, with a maximum of five. Do it without asking any questions, it will also be a good way to show the giant that you have taken into account their recommendations.

A little further down, Big G will ask you to explain the steps you took to prevent the problem from recurring. Explain to him what you have just done, being as concise as possible. Then all you have to do is send the reconsideration request by clicking on the button dedicated to this use.

What if it doesn't work?

This method works, I can guarantee it and I'm not the only one who used it anyway. If Google sends you beating, then that means there are still some problematic pages. It will therefore be necessary to push your investigations further.

As far as I'm concerned, it took about two weeks to win my case and had to make four or five reconsideration requests in all. Note, however, that I only implemented this solution at the last moment, and this probably explains it.

Either way, don't give up hope.
