Why was adsense disabled on Gioorgi.com?

On 24th of September, at 6a.m. o’ clock we received an email from Google, saying our Google Adsense (TM) account was discontinued.

Our Chief editor (Giovanni) had played a bit with Selenium IDE in the last week, so he has probably generated some bad clicks (of a few dollars, anyway… nobody is trying to cheat for few bucks :-)

Anyway the email sent was a bit rude, and without any good explanations; in our humble opinion it was at  least weird.

Google(tm) did not ask explanation before proceeding and did not give us enough elements to take any recovery actions.

The Google AdSense(tm) was a service for the readers, and it has never been our primary funding resource (we earned less then 70 euros in three years).

Gioorgi.com cannot have discontinued services on home page, and if a partner acts in a bad way, we must react promptly

For the above reasons we have decided to stop using Google AdSense(tm) on Gioorgi.com, at least for some time; this is a sad decision, but unavoidable at least at the time of writing

Because our readers are our present and our future.

Giovanni Giorgi Chief Editor.

  1. The bad thing about this story is the following line we read at

    Why was my account disabled? Can you tell me more about the invalid click activity you detected?

    Because we have a need to protect our proprietary detection system, we're unable to provide our publishers with any information about their account activity, including any web pages, users, or third-party services that may have been involved.

    This is a bit stupid: you cannot say us the reason, but so we cannot know the true reason!
