Temporary ad serving limit placed on your AdSense account
When I first created and managed my website, I had no knowledge of AdSense. I didn't pay attention to advertisements from the beginning because I wanted to make a site that mainly talks about art. However, while I was browsing other sites on my own, I found out that sometimes I voluntarily click on advertisements on other sites to see advertisements. I applied for AdSense because I thought it wouldn't be fun if someone came to my site and there were no ads at all.
My website had uploaded my drawings before, and there were only about 10 articles and posts at that time, but I was continuously exhibiting and there were steady visitors through this, so I applied for AdSense and got approved within a few weeks. It was only later that I realized that getting AdSense approval was a difficult task in itself. I think the tip was that there were a lot of drawings I drew myself, and not subject to copyright restrictions, and also it had a steady stream of visitors.
After getting the AdSense approval, I easily pasted AdSense ads with the Weebly editor. At first, I started pasting it where I could normally paste it, but gradually I looked at other sites and put advertisements between the contents. And recently, search engines have also been added to the site, and more and more posts have been accumulated, resulting in more and more visitors. But yesterday I suddenly received the following email from AdSense.
What this email means is as follows: I found out through the same cases that there were many people who received this kind of email among AdSense applicants. Everyone wondered what would happen next, and so was I. So, I decided to write this post because I thought that it would be good to post my case for a while so that someone's curiosity could be resolved.
It is important that you comply with the AdSense Program policies. We will automatically review and update this limit as we continue to monitor your traffic. While this ad serving limit typically impacts publishers for less than 30 days, it may take longer in some cases. Unfortunately, we can’t say how long this will take.
Google AdSense is Google's advertising program. Website owners can share advertising revenue with Google by subscribing to AdSense. As for advertising revenue, when a user clicks on an AdSense advertisement, the advertisement publisher pays an advertisement fee to Google, and Google shares the accumulated advertisement fee with the website creator.
Google AdSense monitors fraudulent clicks or invalid clicks through their strict policies, as clicking on advertisements on the website is related to the revenue of advertisers or website owners. That is, for example, asking friends to click on advertisements, encouraging clicks, placing excessive advertisements between contents to induce readers to click by mistake, or using clickbots to click Catch negligence early. The basic rule is to let users voluntarily click on homepage advertisements as their needs.
I was not familiar with this policy before. I read it carefully and agreed to this policy. Since then, all advertisements between contents have been removed. Only minimal advertisements were left. After doing this, the blog became cleaner. I also remember that it was difficult to read when I entered a certain site and there were too many advertisements, so I cleaned the blog more diligently. And I noticed some point recently.
I put a site search engine on my homepage and that search engine had the option to get monetization.

I turned this on, which serves as an advertisement that distributes revenue from Google Adsense when searching through a search engine. I used this engine and searched several times to see if it was properly searched, and it was the same action as when I clicked on an advertisement on my homepage. Google Adsense prohibits users from clicking on ads on my website. So I turned this button back to off.
It is regrettable that I put AdSense for nothing because of these restrictions, but in the end, it was a job to protect advertisers, users, and website owners alike. In the end, it was nice to be able to be a little more careful after coming in contact with this information.
Even if I receive this email now, the advertisement is still displayed on my homepage. A warning sign like the one below appears in the AdSense management window, but it will disappear someday. (As of the posting of this article, we would like to inform you again that the corresponding warning for AdSense has disappeared as of July 20rd. Reducing useless ads and not accidentally clicking on ads on your own helped. But, of course, AdSense ads also disappeared at the same time. Still, I personally think it's fine. There are no advertisements, so I feel comfortable. So that someone doesn't accidentally click on it. I just have to wait for it to come back when the time is right.)
When that time comes, I will post the results again. I also looked at other sites and found a solution for a case similar to mine and got help.
