Ezinearticles Account Suspended - No Explanation Given

10 replies
I logged into my EZA account today to upload a new article, and was greeted with a red banner across the top of my screen saying words to the effect that my account has been suspended and will not be re-activated until it is in "good-standing", and I should contact the EZA staff for more info.

There was absolutely no explanation given as to why this happened (although I'm guessing it's something to do with the article of mine that was rejected yesterday for "not enough informative content" - never minding the fact that it was 350 words of original, factual information and didn't promote anything) and now I've got to wait for EZA's frankly useless support team to come back to me and see if I can get my account re-instated.

I've got nearly 1 million article views, 300,000 odd resource box clicks, and 500 articles, and have only had a few rejections in the past, so this is all a bit of a shock to me. All the articles I submit meet their guidelines, as far as I can tell, and aren't spammy, spun, or copied from other people. The thing that frustrates me is that I see huge numbers of articles that just shamelessly promote, have appalling spelling and grammar, yet don't seem to be penalized, yet I've been stung over one article by the looks of things

Has anyone else had a similar experience and managed to get their account re-instated? Or should I chalk it down to experience and move on to something better?

At least my articles are still online I guess.

Regards,

Sam

    Yes i have had my account suspended before once. The article i sent in wasn't original enough. I should have ran it through copyscape first.

    Just send them a message telling them that you are sorry this happened and you will not let it happen again. First ask them why they suspended your account. Probably because of an article that belonged to someone else. If it is your first time getting suspended they will probably reinstate your account. (they did mine)

      That is terrible,
      I personally haven't experienced this.

      You should contact their support and try and find a solution.

      Best of luck,

    Many thanks for your quick reply Shannon.

    This is my first time being suspended, so hopefully I'll get re-instated. I sent them a message asking why my account was suspended, haven't apologized yet though as I feel I shouldn't have to be "grovelling" for forgiveness unless they can point out exactly what I've done wrong.

    Have you submitted your articles to a different site under a different pen name? I heard a guy here last week say that was why he got suspended.

      Nope, I've only ever submitted a couple of my articles to other websites, after putting them on EZA, and I've used the same pen name, always.

          Very helpful

          But seriously, I am merely inquiring as to whether anyone else has had any similar experience with EZA.

          Not a crime is it?

            Nope. Just a stupid forum trick. Compounded by the comment about "EZA's frankly useless support team." I'm sure that will endear you to them.

            Sparky drops by once in a while. Fortunately for you, he tends to be a forgiving sort.

        Not sure then. Perhaps they saw the view count and thought you were sending traffic at your articles to bump them up the most viewed list. Most people seem to get their accounts back.

        This is one of reasons I get page ranked on my own site before submitting it to directories.
