  1. I suggest you try Yahoo ads, they’re much better than Adsense and you get paid a lot more. I have used Adsense in the past and they don’t pay out a lot.

  2. I had a look at Yahoo ads but as far as I can tell they are only open to people who “have a valid U.S. Social Security or Tax ID number”. Being a Brit I have neither – unless I’m missing something?

  3. No, you’re right. The Yahoo program is only open to US publishers (and even then, they need mostly US-based traffic).

  4. I have been using Adsense for a while now and have only earned $7 in three months with having 2000 unique visitors a month. I signed up for Yahoo and plan to give them a go.

  5. Mark – that’s what I thought – thanks.

    Dennis – I’ve earnt more than that in my first month and I haven’t been pushing the ads down peoples throats (at least I don’t think i have?), although if you’re in the US I would recommend giving Yahoo Ads a try as well.

  6. I used Adsense for a few months, earning me more than $100. But suddenly, out of the blue, The Google Adsense Team contacted me and told me that my account was suspended.

    I had done something that was not according to their rules. I asked them what it was, but they couldn`t tell me. This is because their algorythm is secret.

    As far as I know, I have never done anything that doesn`t apply to their rules. I have read them thoroughly. Even so, they closed my account, “stole” my $100. Without telling me why.

    I am not that happy about Adsense 🙂

    I would love to use Yahoo Ads, unfortunately, I am a norwegian.

  7. Jens – that sucks. I’d pester them until they give some sort of response. They should at least give you a reason for closing your account.

  8. I agree. I have tried almost everything.
    But they are Google, big multibillion dollar business.
    They can probably get away with anything 🙂

    I have talked to several other people who have experienced the same.

    I wanted to stop using their service because of this. But their adwords, gmail, search engine, analytics is just too good not to use 🙂

    damn you Google
