How to fix Google AdSense Policy Violation step by step

By | June 15, 2019

We all know about the Google AdSense account. First of all, it is not at all easy to get Google AdSense to account for approval. You have to really work hard on your blog or website for Google AdSense approval. As we know, there are certain policies that Google AdSense follows. If you have a Google AdSense account, you must have to follow those policies. I just came to know after being an account holder of Google AdSense for 2 years, I have violated their policies. Yes, you will never know, when they will come back with notification of policy violation. Now, let us talk more in detail about how we can overcome or fix such a policy violation. I will go through my policy violation, which I received recently and how I fixed it.

Step 1 Notification of Adsense Policy Violation

If you are using AdSense account, you will see some notification on the right corner of your account as shown in the below image. Always do check for that notification otherwise you will be in problem with your AdSense account. Mostly they will suggest to use correct ads or unblock categories for increasing your AdSense income.  But, last week I saw a notification of reporting an AdSense policy violation. I was actually shocked and afraid of getting my AdSense account blocked, disabled or banned. But, my account was working fine. You can see in detail in below image about my AdSense notification.

Step 2 Red Line Pop Up for Violation

Now, once you come to your Home tab in the AdSense account, you will see a RED line again prompting you about a violation of AdSense policies. Now, here you have to click the Action button, to check what should be done to resolve the issue.

Step 3 Details of AdSense Policy Violation

Once you click Action, you will come to the Account level violation and Site level violation. Depending on your policy violation you will get the message. I did not violate any Account level violation as you can see in the below picture. Now, just click the Site level violations, which I have violated.

Step 4 Fixing of Policy violation

Now, here you can see the violation in detail, date (hidden), Status (unresolved), consequences (warning) and the violating website. Now, just click the “+” sign in the violation, to learn more about it and how to resolve or fix this problem.

Step 5 Resolve the AdSense Violation issue

Once, you click the “+” sign, you will see all the details about the violation, how to resolve the issue and the time period for fixing the issue. As per the below message, you have to resolve the issue within 3 days of your notification date. If you forget to do that, Google AdSense will not show ads on this violated website. Though your account will not be blocked or banned. I have placed some large ads above the fold and which is creating a problem in following AdSense policies. Hence, I have to remove these large ads from above the fold area. So, I removed all the large ads above the fold area and came back to the AdSense account and click Mark resolved. This will ping google, the issue is being resolved. Now, Google will again come back to your website for confirmation and then only your error message (Red line) about policy violation will be removed.

Step 6 Final Status of Policy violation

As you can see in the below image, the status changes for Unresolved to Resolved, once I have made the necessary changes and click Mark resolved.

Nowadays, at least Google is giving time to resolve policy violation issues, otherwise earlier they may directly block or banned the AdSense account. Now, I hope you all would have understood how to tackle or solve the policy violation issues.
