Google the money stealer

There is a big fear in even most legitimate adsense publishers. Google can one day accuse you of invalid clicks, close you account and take all of your money.

It happened to me. I don’t know what I did wrong because from email they send you they offer several options never really specifying which one. In fact they offer very little in terms of explanation, specially if you consider that money is involved. Hey if AT&T or ComEd ever decided to take our money, I think they would give option to us to complain even if we are guilty as hell.

There is a lot of gripe over this in forums, check http://groups.google.com/group/adsense-help-troubleshooting/ for example. I think they are deleting much of it already.

There is one issue. Having legitimate site, with legitimate clicks, and they take money for those as well. There are people pulling their hair over this as they have server bills to pay and google just took all of their income.

One more reason not to base your plans on adsense revenue.

If anyone knows whether you can sue Google at small claims court that would be great. It doesn’t cost much and can bring a lot of fun. I don’t see how would they ever win that since they will not show anything.
I am rightfully angry over this. I didn’t expect that Google will be weak link, squeaky wheel on the web as they turned out to be. I am in luck as I don’t have server bills to pay at the moment. Others are not that lucky.

Google shame on you.
