This article will probably be the shortest article I have ever made on this blog. Because there is no explanation of definitions, tutorials and so on. And there is only my story about, My Sadness with Google Adsense. And I just want to share with you, about the experience that I experienced, and I hope that after you read my article, you will not make mistakes as I experienced. Don't do it, if you don't want to feel sad.
The Beginning of The Storyuntil since this article was published, the age of my blog is only about 2 months. Still very baby right? And I'm not hypocritical, I create a blog with my main goal is to make money from Google Adsense. And maybe, there are some of you who have the same goal as me. Is it really like that?
Maybe for some people, I am someone who is too ambitious with Google Adsense. Yes, Google Adsense is like a beautiful girl that many people are interested in in this world. Although there are also many alternatives to Google Adsense, but I don't know, why Google Adsense is so "charming".
And when my blog is exactly 1 month old, my desire to register for Google Adsense is getting higher. For that, I bought a domain, so that my blog does not use subdomains from other bloggers, like "blogspot.com". Because according to the information that I got from the forums, that the submission of Google Adsense will be more quickly accepted if we use the TLD domain. Is it really like that? Maybe it's true and maybe not.
And when I bought a domain, I immediately made an article tutorial, namely How To Connect a Custom Domain With Blogger, and it was the first time I bought a domain. I feel a little proud of myself when my blog has its own domain, lol. And I thought at that time that my chance to join Google Adsense partners was getting bigger. But I have not been able to register for Google Adsense because there is no "Earnings" menu, on my blogger dashboard.
Register for Google Adsense
And, a few days after I bought a domain and added to the number of my articles on the blog, finally what I've been waiting for came too. A menu appears on my dashboard, a menu that will start my story with Google Adsense.
I don't think for a long time, even though the number of my articles is still small, I ventured to register for Google Adsense, because of my curiosity with this "Beautiful Girl". What I mean by beautiful girls is Google Adsense, don't think of real girls.
On March 9, 2019 It was a historic day for me, because what I dreamed of came true. My account is approved by Google Adsense and my blog is ready to show ads.

And at that time I thought, my success on Google Adsense had begun to open. Since my account was approved, I started to advertise on this blog, I posted several ads on the main page and articles on this blog. And my new hope is, "I hope I get a lot of income from these advertisements".
The nature of humans who will never feel satisfied, for what they have achieved. After one hope is fulfilled, he will have new hopes, and so on.
Sad StoryAfter a few days I used Google Adsense, I saw the account dashboard from Google Adsense, my balance was still 0.3 dollars. But at that time I was still thinking positively, because the traffic from my blog was still low which resulted in my income being low. At that time, traffic was only around 100 per day (based on data from blogger).
On March 15, 2019 When I checked the speed of the page from my blog, the speed was very low. For that I try to do optimization, because the possibility that causes the speed of my blog is slow is the google adsense ad code. So I made changes and optimizations on the HTML of my blog, I checked Google Page Speed Insight and GTMetrix repeatedly until finally when I logged in to Google Adsense account, I got a notification from Google Adsense that my account was disabled.

Have you ever fallen from a height? Do you feel pain? That's what I feel. When I hope to become a successful person with income from Google Adsense, now I have to be a person who is nothing.
Sometimes, hope that will make us rise, but hope also makes us fragile.
That same day, I tried to appeal to Google Adsense. I tell the real chronology by giving the data that I have. After I sent the appeal via email, I hope again, that my appeal will be approved and my account will be activated again.
On March 16, 2019 I get an incoming email from Google Adsense, before I open the email, I hope that my appeal is accepted. And after I open the email.
|[Sharing Experience] A Real Story About Google Adsense - appeal rejected|
Can you imagine what I experienced? Do I have to bury my hopes with Google Adsense? I do not know. But after the appeal was rejected, my enthusiasm made the article a little.
End of storyMaybe with this refusal I will try to use alternative adsense, but I don't know when. And I will continue to make the article, because writing is one of my hobbies. Although now making articles without income.
So, what caused my adsense account to be deactivated, the possibility is because I checked using Google Page Speed Insight and GTMetrix with the ad code still attached to the blog. Maybe that was the cause, because I did not know for sure and Google also did not tell for sure via email.And I don't know the exact reason. Because when I log in my Adsense account and I see it in the address bar, there is the word "invalid click". Of course I don't feel like I click on my own ad on my blog.
Conclusion:From my story above, maybe there are some things that I can conclude:
- Having a Google Adsense account doesn't mean you are safe. You can experience problems if you don't comply with the policies of Google Adsense.
- If you already have an adsense account, and want to make changes or optimize the HTML of your blog, please release the adsense code in the HTML of your blog. If the optimization you have done is complete, please re-install the adsense code on your blog.
And that's my experience, maybe for those of you who are experts in Google Adsense, I will assume that my post is meaningless. But believe me, this is the first time I have been accepted by Google Adsense, where previously my submission was often rejected and even though my Google Adsense account is now disabled.
And this is just my real story, which might be able to help those of you who are using Google Adsense for the first time and you don't repeat the things I did that resulted in your account being disabled.
At least the two things above will make your Google Adsense account safe. You can read more about Adsense, in the article All About Google Adsense That You Should To Know. In the article, explained what you must obey the Google Adsense policy.
Maybe you have a suggestion for me? please leave a comment below this post. I would really appreciate if you give me advice.
Maybe that's all for this article. Hopefully you don't experience the same thing that I experienced. We meet another time and with another interesting article.
