Few Changes to this Blog

This answer was contributed by Wasaweb when I asked about mature content that disabled the adsense on my blog.  Don't worry though, the main difference is that I have to be a bit more selective when posting pictures of hot girls and make sure they are all SFW.


There are a number of problems.

Sites need to be family-friendly for AdSense. The unofficial test I always ask is this: would you let your young child / nephew / niece access to your site to read the text and see the images? If you cannot answeryes immediately, then it's probably not a good idea to place AdSense.

I assume you have received a notification disabling your account, rather than suspending ad serving to your blog. You can have a shot at appeal, but the chances would be extremely slim, since adult / mature materials are clearly against the Programme Policies (http://www.google.co.uk/support/adsense/bin/answer.py?hl=en-uk&answer=48182).

Turning on the adult filter is irrelevant for AdSense purposes, since you cannot host or link to sites with adult / mature materials. The filter, if you're talking about Blogger, is needed to comply with the Blogger ToS.


Luckily!  I told the advisor that my adsense had not been disabled, but there is still a chance that this blog will be permanently de-monetized.  Don't worry though, if that so happens, I will probably launch a website and figure out a way to make it even more awesome than before.


OK. A lucky escape that. To be honest, I wouldn't place AdSense on blogs behind the adult filter. If you have other blogs, then I'd concentrate my AdSense efforts on those, and seek alternative methods of monetizing this blog. If you want to place AdSense on this blog, then remove all unsuitable posts, and not place it behind the filter.

I hope this helps you out if you were wondering about any of this.  I'll be answering all comments after class, MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY OTHER TWO BLOGS if you haven't already, wrote some interesting posts earlier.

I just with AdSense would be enabled on my blog lol. It's been more than a week which they say it can take, but I read somewhere it could easily be more than that. Kinda sucks though when I have friend whose AdSense was approved within 1-3 hours >.<

Oh wow, that sucks to hear. Fortunately there are other options to use instead of AdSense. But I think you know that already.
