Skip to comments.Google & Youtube Going After ' The Right Pundit ' foe Ideological Reasons ?
Posted on 04/06/2013 2:57:50 PM PDT by Para-Ord.45
"Here we go again. My Google Ads have disappeared and I have no idea why. Last night I received an email from Google saying my account was disabled but had no specific reason why.... I decided to write them and ask what could be wrong. A legit question I think after 4 1/2 years full time blogging and 21K posts. Then I receive this email last night saying Google Adsense had been disabled and now I can't even log in to the account.
So, like a lot of others this happens to, I have no idea why and am left guessing. It kinda stumps you when the same company that invented Google Glass and can parallel park a driverless car can't simply tell you what (if anything) you did wrong. Maybe I did nothing. But right now there's no ads and no revenue. I also received an email saying my YouTube partnership was canceled. I not sure what to do from here.
If anybody's got any suggestions write me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks, TRP
Dammit , I meant * for not “foe”
Excerpted, more here at the site:
It’s because adsense has become part of Youtube analytics. Check the analytics part of your youtube channel.
There is an active effort by lib trolls right now to go after conservative websites by slamming ads with a lot of hits in a short period of time. What it does is make Google think you are trying to raise up your hit count for more ad revenue and they suspend your account.
It wasn’t political but something similar happened to me. I have an industry specific blog that was presented at a major conference about five years ago as a resource on the subject of the presentation. The presenter went there for an article and some code samples and pointed out something in a targeted ad. Well, about five hundred people in the conference all hit that ad at the same time, many coming from a shared IP cluster, and it set off Google’s alert and my adsense account was shut down permanently.
That guy is a skanky blog pimp.
Lately he’s been ripping off videos, putting a watermark on them and passing them off as his own.
I imagine he’s being sanctioned for theft and pimping.
He’s a pretty scummy pimp, as pimps go and deserves whatever he gets.
Here is some more info. It is called Click Bombing.
If you search “Adsense Click Bombing” you will find thousands upon thousands of similar stories like yours and there isn’t much you can do about it.
My advice is to use something like Amazon Partner accounts and just sell specific products.
That could be another reason too. This blog/YouTube may have had copyright violation complaints. If that is the case, they are lucky they only have adsense shut down instead of a lawsuit.
I just peruse The Right Pundit site with many others like Twitchy, GatewayPundit, Ace of Spades,RedState,WeazelZippers,etc.
Scope out his last “articles”.
He’s ripping off videos, watermarking them, and then directing traffic to his blog to view them.
Gets pretty pissy when it’s pointed out, too.
That makes a lot of sense. Looking at it, I don’t think it is high profile enough to get click bombed.
Not good to put yourself at their mercy like this. They got you dependant on them and then they cut you off.There has to be another way to make ad money without going through google. If not, then they own the internet and that is not good for us.
> There has to be another way to make ad money without going through google.
Yes there is: negotiate and conduct business directly with advertisers who would benefit by placing ads on your site.
In my case, I really didn’t care about the ad money. I had just checked the box to include them when building the blog part initially.
You should be dumped from here as well for making that typo. This is series!!
I can say from personal experience, I turned this guy in numerous times to Admin for plagiarism, specifically taking other people’s video and calling it his own.
I made Admin aware of this for several reasons, not he least of which was the fact that with JimRob’s troubles with alleged copyright infringement, I didn’t want further trouble on FR because of abetting a rip-off artist like this.
Quite a number of his threads were pulled with only one or two replies, and purged so that they don’t even appear on the posting history. I received more than one letter of thanks from Admin Mod for pointing these out to them.
If Google is in any way sensitive to these issues (and I believe they are as I have watched some of my favorite music videos disappear from YouTube) then it is no surprise at all that this guy got his ticket cancelled.
I've never run across an honest blog pimp. I probably never will.
Good grief. I thought talkradio03 got banned November 12, 2011. Why he was ever reinstated is certainly a mystery.
Even if he promised to be a good boy, one infraction should have been the end of the line.
