Violation explanation


LAYOUT ENCOURAGES ACCIDENTAL CLICKS: Publishers are not permitted to encourage users to click on Google ads in any way. This includes any implementation that may encourage accidental clicks, such as placing ads near flash games or navigation bars, or placing ads and site links extremely close together.

DECEPTIVE AD IMPLEMENTATION: Publishers may not implement Google ads in a manner that disguises the ads in any way. In order to maintain a good user experience, it is important for publishers to clearly distinguish Google ads from site content. More information about this policy can be found in our help center

    Hard to say since you can't see where the ads are now...

    Probably using an adsense optimised theme that google classes as "deceptive"

    The ad is located right next to the entrance text, which users could view as the companies they want to see. I nearly clicked one of your ads thinking it was an internal link. Could be why?

    Yeah, I think that middle box ad is your issue.

    From my understanding you basically need to give the user a chance to read content before you hit them with an ad

        Who did your site get over 2 million facebook likes?? doesn't seem real given the content. Not saying that caused your adsense problem but that jumped out as overkill on SEO that may get googles attention.

        You said you resubmitted to Google did they respond? how do you know they have re-reviewed it yet?

          I noticed the same thing. 2 million, really? You have almost as many likes as Romney's running mate. This looks very very fishy. And the most popular city for your likes is Makati, Rizal, Philippines. This screams bought likes.

    I can only assume.. I am by no means an expert.

    If I were you I would get on the google product forums and ask one of volunteers to take a look.

    This is just my opinion but it looks like your ads are generally very close to the link lists, over all there is very little space between stuff and seems a poorly designed theme. It is just my opinion and not worth 2 cents.

    Site is too short in width. I think no space around your ad could be the problem.
