My Christmas Gift From Google

Today I received an e-mail from Google. I didn´t think this was possible, even though I have heard from several that have told me this earlier. I have now officially been banned from Google Adsense! At first I thought the e-mail was a joke, then I thought it was an attempt of phising. But when I tried to log in to my Adsense account, I just received the message that it was disabled.
I have not received a reason for banning me, just several possible reasons. I have not been told to contact Google to talk to them about what and why it has happened. It seems that they just ban you and don´t want to hear from you again. I have sent them an e-mail earlier today, but I doubt that they will even read it.

I have no clue why this is happening. I have not done anything extraordinary, and I have read the terms of agreement many times. I have no clue at all. I had close to $100 in my account when they shut it down. According to Google all of my money are going back to the advertisers. How are they giving this money back? Can´t understand how it´s possible to give money back to the advertisers. Will all people who are showing adsense ads on their site be getting a little more money per click because of my $100 loss?

This is the e-mail I received from Google:

Hello (my name),

It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on
the Google ads on your site(s). We have therefore disabled your Google
AdSense account. Please understand that this step was taken in an
effort to protect the interest of the AdWords advertisers.

A publisher’s site may not have invalid clicks on any ad(s), including
but not limited to clicks generated by:

– a publisher on his own web pages
– a publisher encouraging others to click on his ads
– automated clicking programs or any other deceptive software
– a publisher altering any portion of the ad code or changing the layout, behavior, targeting, or delivery of ads for any reason

Practices such as these are in violation of the Google AdSense Terms
and Conditions and program polices, which can be viewed at:
https://www.google.com/adsense/localized-terms?hl=en_US
https://www.google.com/adsense/policies?hl=en_US

Publishers disabled for invalid click activity are not allowed further
participation in AdSense and do not receive any further payment. The
earnings on your account will be properly returned to the affected
advertisers.

Sincerely,

The Google AdSense Team
