Failure... What to do?

23 replies
Today is a bad day for me.. Got an email from adsense that my account was disabled. As usual, I'm not aware of any reason. Nothing that could define why my account was disabled.
Due to the same same reason adsense has never been a good source of monetization for me but it was generating money for me and now the only source is completely gone. Its a failure but I'm not much discouraged because I believe I need to learn some other ways.
I don't know other similar quick ways of monetization. Any ideas?

  • My adsense account was banned too, a long time ago though..

    You had it right though, adsense isn't the type of income you want to rely on. When I made $100 a day on adsense, there was a million factors rooting for me and everything was great. Someone eventually click bombed me, and my account went over $700 in a single day, to insta-banned.

    What did I learn? A LOT

    There are much easier ways to make money online than adsense, all your doing is promoting other websites that want to make money off of your traffic. Put yourself a few steps up the ladder and do what their doing =)

      Lmao @ "banned from adsense was the key to success".... love it.

      It sure teaches you to open your eyes enough to focus on diversifying your portfolio. Earn income from 3-5 sources, its easier to take a hit.

    Yes, Adsense is not the only one. There are still good alternatives out there. There are still a lot of way to monetize your site.

    Another option for your current situation is BuySellAds. With BSA, you monetize your site by selling adspace on your site. Advertisers put their banners on your site and pay you monthly, not by PPC. It's a good alternative to Adsense.

    There are many ways to make money on the internet other than adsense
    one of them that I like affiliate marketing, you simply review a product to discuss the premises showing the same product in terms of price, advantages and disadvantages of these products.

      I think its not correct. Adsense is the best of all. Now I can say it more confidently. Google is the King here dude.

  • If you could do some work work then you could make your site into an advertisement hub.
    Just post good contents to aid buyers (like reviews etc.) and then go to companies and show your proposal for them to advertise using your site.

    This is much of an old school approach but its more of a standard business practice with still lots of room for innovation and improvement.

    Don't just stick on some easy money earning schemes. Go for more risks if you want to grow. Be more innovative and try new crowds or markets. Follow the economies of scale and always strive to be larger everyday.

    My adsense account was still alive but just last year when panda hits my site and earns only about $1-$3 a day, I thought it was the end of my online journey, but luckily I found another source of income which keeps my spirit alive, Tip. Don't rely on just 1 source of income, find another and another. Good luck

    If you really don't know why Google disabled your site, you may be able to re-apply. Just saying. The other posters are entirely correct though, there are other ad sources and other ways of making money out there. Sorry this happened to you though!

    Losing my adsense account is what forced me to finally take up list building where I'm earning exponentially more than I ever did with adsense.

    Adsense is pennies and list building is the machine that prints money.

      What do you mean by list building? I'm desperately looking for other sources but none seems attractive like adsense Do you mean buliding email list? If so, then how do you monetize that? Some of my sites are still ranking higher but no are waste right now.

    Hey Opportunist86,

    I hope you don't mind me adding my 2 cents...

    2 issues here:

    1. Failure is part of IM tapestry...just dust yourself off and get going again quickly...
    2. I have to point out your quick request for monetisation. If you ask me, you should build a business not a short term income generator. Imagine being at the same point again in 12/18 or 24 months time...

    ...it's time...!

    Llwyddiant!

        I have to agree that should see light at the end of this tunnel. By that i mean adsense is probably the lowest form of monetization, there are several others ways to attack this. Why not slap up an opt-in list for people to learn more about whatever your sites are about? If you still want to do ppc Chikita and Adbrite are also good possibilities for you.

        My adsense account was banned many years ago but i see now that it was one of the best things that happened for me because it made me think outside of the box for my business.

            Frankly, there are a lot of things you need to know when building any online business, but possibly the most important process is list building. Learning how to build your list is absolutely important, but like anything else in business, there is an easy way and a more difficult way. Not to mention the countless other ways of doing it.

              You can try and sell ad spaces on your website through BuySellAds as elexmedia mentioned but they do take 25% off your sale so that can be quite a bit depending on how much you're selling your ad spaces for. A good alternative to it is OIOpublisher which comes in two version: Wordpress plugin and standalone. It's $47 but I found a coupon SHOGUN-JULY10 that will get $10 off that. Other than that, you can try Chitika which I've heard is one of the best alternative to Adsense although they don't pay as much and ads are mostly relevant when the visitor entered the site through a search engine.

    Failure? learn from it of course. And I guess the learning here is don't et adsense again. I don't also understand adsense very much. I'm not sure if its complicated or just plain wrong programming or there's a trick in using it. but I don't use adsense.
