Personal Adsense account is 7 years old or so.
Site A and B used same Adsense account.
Site A is safe, clean, 4 years old and gets 1 million unique organic visits a month.
Site B is new, pushed Adsense limits and got my account banned and both sites blacklisted.
Created new business Adsense account that won't display ads on site A.

Second tier ad networks generate 10% of what Adsense made.

Do I recreate site A on a new domain? If so, do I delete site A or redirect traffic? What is the best process to transfer site A content to a new domain to gain organic traffic on the new domain using the old content?

    302 redirects are meant for that I suppose.

    Personally I would look for other ways of monetizing though, quite risky thing your busy with as it's not guaranteed that Google won't recognize the other site, and in case something go's wrong you lose your 1M/mo visits.

    What was the reason for you getting banned? and if you were getting 1 million unique visits you must have been making well over $10 thousand dollars a month.

    With 1 million uniques per month I would never consider switching domains. Find another source of income besides Adsense.

    What's the traffic demographics like?

    With 1 million organic views, you could easily sell ad space to actual advertisers looking for that type of exposure for their site/products. Why aren't you capitalizing on this method yet? Adsense is not the only game in town.

      Tried Amazon. It wasn't anything special. Maybe I'm using it wrong?

        With more then 1 million visits per month, I know he makes more than $6,000 a month. Not all traffic can be monetized with amazon.

        I am just like you. I was getting more than 1 million visits per month, adsense disable ads to my site.

        I got a new adsense account. I wanted to act smart, so I did a 301 redirect of the banned site to a new site. The new adsense account got banned within 5 minutes. And I just got the adsense account less than 24 hrs. This happen on March 12th, about 18 days ago.

        I also don't know how to monetize my site because the traffic is from a keyword that is only online. Physical products affiliate marketing would likely not work. And my traffic is from around the globe, but mainly from the U.S.

          Interesting. I didn't consider Adsense detecting traffic that is redirected from a blacklisted site. Is it possible? Perhaps you didn't make a new Adsense account the proper way.

          My website that is a non-physical niche difficult to monitize outside Adsense which itself averaged about $2.50 per thousand. I didn't think far enough ahead when I embarked on becoming an authority on this niche. Oh well. At least I made something of value to the world. And I learned.

          What was the reason for them banning you?

          And how much do you estimate you were earning each month from Adsense before the ban?

            Disabled for copied text, gibberish text or duplicate content. The only one that makes sense is the last as I created another site within the same niche. All the content is unique, however.

            Appeal failed.

              Is it text saying CLick this ad?

              I never knew you can get your adsense account for duplicate content. That would mean hundreds of big name sites could get their adsense pulled since they all post the same press releases or news releases.

                Duplicate means the same article twice on one website. But what you're talking about can be bad as well.

                No, the site did not say or suggest "click this ad" or any such similar thing. The site did not literally violate Adsense ToS. The site was grey in that it had an aggressive theme to get a higher CTR - it pushed close to rule breaking but did not break rules. And again, as stated earlier, there was no dup or spun content. It was all new and hand written so to speak.

                Correct - I know of several sites which have dup content, aggressive themes and Adsense. These sites must be under the radar due to low earnings. My grey site had four figure a day earnings. An employee of Adsense must have visited my site, thought it to be trash and canned me.

                The big impact though is my white legit site was also blacklisted and that is what hurts.

    I would recommend doing affiliate marketing as much as possible. There could be some good that comes out of this for you.

    I have stopped trying to earn money with display ads long back. Had a site with 1M page views a month but sold it. I use content marketing to sell products now... as a product owner and as an affiliate. No more selling ad inventory!

    Don't move the site, just sell banner inventory yourself on a CPM basis...

    Why don't you try contacting them saying,

    "I took some real bad advise on that site and screwed up. I'm sorry about that and it won't happen again. Could you please reconsider allowing me back into the program."

    Guys, if you have such huge traffic, try CPA. There are several offers that are generic in nature like Free iPhone for an email submit etc that would be perfect for your site. You could also look for other campaigns that are more specific to your audience that might pay more. Check out offerVault or oDigger to find the campaing you want.

    I find it hard to believe they'd ban you for "almost" pushing the limits. It would have had to be either a huge number of fake clicks or a blatant violation of their policies. What niche is your website in? I suppose some niches are much more sensitive and they monitor those closer than others.

    Did you try Media.net (aka Bing/Yahoo) display network?

    I'd have done it on a new domain.
