So, that didn't last very long, and I'm not entirely sure why. I got this email from Google yesterday:
Hello, After reviewing our records, we've determined that your AdSense account poses a risk of generating invalid activity. Because we have a responsibility to protect our AdWords advertisers from inflated costs due to invalid activity, we've found it necessary to disable your AdSense account. Your outstanding balance and Google's share of the revenue will both be fully refunded back to the affected advertisers. Please understand that we need to take such steps to maintain the effectiveness of Google's advertising system, particularly the advertiser-publisher relationship. We understand the inconvenience that this may cause you, and we thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns about the actions we've taken, how you can appeal this decision, or invalid activity in general, you can find more information by visiting http://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=57153. Sincerely, The Google AdSense Team
So, I guess they disabled my AdSense account there's a risk of invalid activity? I'm not entirely sure what that means, since it seemed like I was making money according to their statistics. But now it sounds like they've taken away everything I've made so far. Um, thanks, Google. Sure, it was only like $8 but still. Ah well. The blog looks better without ads for vacations and pharmaceuticals anyways. So I guess my money-making experience has officially failed!
Here's a blog to keep track of all our baby photos and stories as Parker grows up.
About Our Family
Hi. I'm a photographer and my wife is a teacher and our baby is still trying to figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. We started this blog so we could post different photos and stories about Parker that our friends and families could quickly access and comment on (if they want). He's growing up so fast that it's cool to document all of his different phases and make various Star Wars references to them. Hope you enjoy!
