For AdSense publishers, the problem of policy violations seems to have become a common problem. AdSense, is also a way to make money on the internet, but with a myriad of policies and conditions that must be followed and updated every day, because AdSense is an advertising program that always pays attention to the balance of the "three ecosystems" namely advertisers, publishers, and users.

I'm sure everyone is trying desperately to comply with these policies. Well, here I will tell you what are the forms and types of violations of AdSense policies, because some people still don't know whether their actions in implementing the ads violate them or not. The following are examples of AdSense policy violations.

1. Clickjacking

In the AdSense regulations, it has been stated that you are prohibited from manipulating the ad scripts provided by Google. Clickjacking is a form of violation where the ad script is changed in such a way that its size covers the entire page, or changes the ad click range to be elsewhere (not where the ad is). The sample ad is located in the left sidebar, but you edit the click zone to be in the article area. Obviously this is a form of fraud against the user, where the user does not know that the clicked area is the click zone of the ad.

Clickjacking also has other forms, one of which is to change the link in the post into a link to an advertisement.

Broadly speaking, the main principle of clickjacking is to manipulate the click zone of the ad so that the click area of ​​the ad changes (whatever form it takes).

2. Ex-Click

Ex Click, also known as the click exchange program, is a violation of AdSense policies. If you watch the video "Different Forms of Invalid Activity", then Ex-click is a form of mutual clicking between friends, relatives, family, and so on.

Ex-Click can also be said as a click that is not qualified, because it can harm the advertiser (where the impression they get is not comparable to the reality).

Misleading Title (widget title that doesn't match)

In the video "Different Forms of Invalid Activity", this issue is also discussed. Labels like "Sponsored" or "Ads", are still acceptable because they don't attract people to click silently. However, what if the label is "Featured Article"? Surely misleading is not it? The best option is not to put a label or widget title on top of your AdSense ad, with the aim that the clicks that occur are natural.

3. Bomb Click

Click bomb, is a click that occurs in a row from one user continuously in a short time. It doesn't matter who does it, whether it's yourself or someone else. In the list of adsense program policies, it is stated that you must be able and responsive in dealing with spam that occurs on the site from nowhere and immediately fix it.

Many people find that their accounts get banned for clicking their own reasons, even though they don't feel like doing that. It could be that someone else is doing a click bomb on your ad unit, but you don't know it. One way to deal with click bombs that come from other people is to diligently monitor reports on the dashboard. Usually, if a click bomb occurs, then there are irregularities in the report, so you can take follow-up actions such as immediately removing the ad unit for a while.

4. Floating ads

For this one it is a little controversial, because there are several sites that place AdSense ads floating on their sites. What are floating ads? Floating ads are when an ad unit goes down or up following the scroll of the mouse. It is said to violate program policies because it feels like forcing visitors to click on ads.

5. Ad Units in Search

Be careful for those of you who are new to the world of AdSense. It is highly recommended from all AdSense publishers not to show ads on search pages or Search Results of blogs or sites.

Why? Because we don't know what query the user put into our site. If the query that is written contains a prohibited word or phrase, it can result in the blog being banned by Google AdSense.

Successive violations of AdSense policies will result in your account being suspended or worse, getting banned. When this happens, not only is the money lost, but the time to collect the money is also lost. Not to mention, the time it takes to get approval again. So, as much as possible follow all program policies so that the work is not in vain.
