Today, the big G disabled my AdSense account that has been bringing me money for the last 3 years. Yup 3 years of passive income, a lot of work, time and effort.
It's probably all gone by now, as my appeal has been rejected and 'you' can only appeal once.
Needles to say, I did not do any illegal activity, violate T&C or place any invalid activity on my websites. They disabled it for no reason, neither can they name the reason in the email.
What do I think about it?
I think it's a good lesson. Lesson: that teaches that there is no financial security if you are dependant on somoene else. If someone else can control your money, and close the tap at any given moment for no reason then, there is no freedom. Just illusion of freedom.
I could open another AdSense account and set up new websites and start making money this way again.
But do I want it?
Not, so much. I'm actually quite dissapointed in the big G and might finish the cooperation between us. Yes, you hear me. I don't care if I'm a small marketer or big fish. No one messes with me like this. No one controls my financial freedom and no one will tell me that my activity is invalid, when it's not. That's undermining my integrity, honesty and dignity. So, big G needs to be placed aside for now. Yeahh, I know what you are all saying :'' bro, do you think Google cares about your rant, they dont give a f***'' I know they dont guys, but I don't either.
I have other sources of income online. Like Amazon KDP, that never fails or my affiliate links that bring me income month in month and my own products( not related to IM) that are selling well...
Lesson : Have options and choice : that's where real freedom lies
Will I ever return to AdSense?
I will think about it ... the choice is mine!!!
