EZA Stopped Accepting Sites With Adsense right After Title...Email Reply

13 replies
Hello Guys,

Was trying to approve my articles that were directing to a pages with over 400 words unique content but all were rejected because of sole reason of having ad-sense right after the title...

Second, they don't accept articles with unrelated links anymore...


Here is the reply...

Hi ,
Thank you for your email.


It is crucial that your landing page creates a good user experience
for your visitors. This reflects well on you, and adds to your
credibility as an expert in your niche.


We are concerned that many of the pages on your linked site do not
provide a good user experience. The top of the page is dense with
ads, giving it a spammy appearance - like you are just directing
readers to this site in the hopes that they click on your ads.


Also, the link does not offer any products or services, instead all
of the links on the site direct to other pages which are part of the
same domain. The only links outside the domain are advertisements.
This also leads to the appearance that the site was created primarily
to have readers click on the ads.


Please see this recent blog post:
Landing Page Quality
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you,

Kari

They are trying to be harsh like Google...But unfortunately they are not Google...

    That wording's a bit rich, coming from EZA, isn't it? I can't remember seeing many sites with as much AdSense as they have.

    I do understand why they're tightening up on this sort of thing and don't want people linking to sites of the type described here (and I'd doubtless do more or less the same, in their position), but at the same time I can't help wondering whether they're aware of the heavy-duty irony, there, in what they're saying?!

    Good, I say.

    Ezinearticles is doing what it should have done years ago - and that's get rid of junk.

    Sorry, but sending people to a page with ad's underneath your title DOES look spammy. And having a bio box with different links never made sense to me and in fact, made the writer look like an idiot in my eyes.

    And i have just one Adsense block nothing else...in a specific products niche....

    PatriciaJ@ And i am in doubt whether GOOGLE will get pleased with such content farms ever again...Their future lies in "syndication model" for getting traffic, and for that they have to be harsh like that for boosting their syndication rate...hmm

      Their past lies in "syndication model" too, it's just a shame that seemed to have been forgotten for a while. Maybe if you moved your ads lower down the page they will reconsider, that's if you want your articles on there.

        Google generates billions from Adsense income so I'm sure they will be pleased that Ezines is linking to a site that is monetized with Adsense. If the site was a link farm then they will be well in their right to reject the article.

        Then based on the above they should just get rid of their directory in the process. Have you actually seeing the ad placements they apply on their site?

          It doesn't entirely work like that. Google has to please it's advertisers and especially since the Panda update with lost traffic and no doubt lost revenue Ezine articles has to please Google. Therefore authors have in turn to do as EZA require if they want their articles on the site and it is EZA's right to reject any article for whatever reason.

          EZA have for a long time declined articles that link to sites that mainly have ads above the fold and that's despite the fact that they have a lot of ads on their pages. Hypocritical though that may seem they have toned it down with the new design, previously all you seemed to see were the ads when you checked out an article, now the articles look more prominent.

          It would be interesting to see the op's website and then we might know what EZA considers 'dense with ads'

            I agree with you partially! Google does have to please their advertisers and that is why they invest heavily in ensuring invalid clicks are discounted, MFA's are de-indexed and poor quality clicks are smart priced. This is Google's responsiblity and not EZAs.

            It seems logical to me in their quest to please Google the premise they used to reject the OP's article should be applied to their own site.

            The irrelevent link is definitely grounds for disapproval and one can't argue that point.

            Yeah, I am also curious but the OP did state that there is only one ad block under the title.

    Ironic since on all of EzineArticles article pages, they have Adsense right under the titles and many more ad blocks than actual content.

    Maybe you should send them a screen shot of their own site? Tell them you modelled your site after theirs! :rolleyes:

    It doesn't matter what EzineAricles.com does on their own site. That is irrelevant. They are providing you with a free service (unless you've signed up for the paid membership) and they have the right to set the rules for your articles and the links in them. They can run their own site as they please and set the rules for that site. If you don't like it stop complaining about them and find somewhere else to submit your articles.

      That's really what it comes down to, isn't it? It is their site, and as such they have the right to run it any way they want to. EZA has been helpful for many of us in getting started, but if we want to play, we have to play by the rules. Or find a different sandbox.

    That is pretty funny considering that the first thing you see when you click into an article on ezinearticle's site is what? Oh yeah, you see spammy adsense right below the title.
