Hi guys, today I woke up with a horrific news. I wanted to kill myself when I logged in to my Admob account. I am banned without a warning or at least a courtesy mail. I have been trying to find out the reason, I have read tons of similar posts and it looks like it is not very likely that they will reactivate my account. I need some suggestion about the mail that I will send them in order for them to understand that I did nothing wrong and that what they did is actually wrong.

I was getting 30k impressions daily and I am suspicious that somebody has attacked my application; however, isn't admob supposed to understand that and filter out those clicks?

This is so frustrating, any comment on this issue would be great.

Thank you so much.

That's a really sad news.. I think it could be possible that some user just clicked your ads over and over again, just to get you banned.. Normally, I would suggest that admob is able to filter this clicks out, but it seems not in your case.
If i remember correct, there should be an official "protest"-formular online. But I would not put to much hope in int.
Maybe you should just try a new network, as soon as possible.

Thank you for your comments, It is really a shame if a person is able to make me banned that way. I have switched to another network but it will not be paying as good as Admob does. Anyways Google is the boss and I have no other option except abiding by whatever this giant wants.

Im surprised they couldnt filter out multiple clicks from one account. But they would probably just assume it was you telling someone to click on ads for them.


Can I ask what your app was?

In most cases the ban of admob not involve the ban on the developer console since the services are not related. However it's really strange that admob ban persons in this way, are you sure that you have not put ads near buttons to increase the click?

Post some screenshots of the locations where you put your admob banners and the names of your apps so we can tell you why you got banned.

Hi! Sorry to hear about that. Based on my own experience conducting workshop for my students, we follows these guidelines:

1) Never click on your own app
2) Never open your admob account using public wifi
3) never open your admob account using the same gmail address as your google developer account.

There are few more advices we normally gives our students but those above is the major guidelines that students must follow.

I hope this helps you.

All the best. Never give up. Just continue open a new admob account as their new formats gives us better income.

Take care.

Kind regards.

Do you have experiences with both MoPub and Admob? I'm a new developer and I've been curious to see how MoPub mediation does against Admob's, numbers wise.
