Aaron Greenspan Sued Google for Disabling Adsense Account

Today we going to hear a story about a guy name Aaron Greenspan, who sued adsense for disabling his account and how we won the case. Google adsense team has been disabling many accounts to protect other publisher and advertisers interest. But, at times they are not 100% true and many people lose their hard earned adsense income because of Adsense account disable problem.

Google adsense is said to be the ruler of contextual ads because no matter what Google will keep serving your ad space with advertisements, provided you have valid Google adsense account, else you have to switch to Adsense alternate program.

The story is about a man Aaron Greenspan . One day he received this email from Google adsense team

Aaron was shocked and amazed and he was very sure that he never indulged in any of fraudulent method. Like any other man he tried to contact Google adsense people by several ways¦Aaron Greenspan

Email, adwords team, Google adsense forum. He tried every thing any one can think of but though he was unable to get in touch with them.

He had almost $721 in his account but due to Google adsense policies, he was not liable to receive the payment. Similar issues I have seen with many of my blogger friends whose Google adsense account got disapproved all of a sudden and all the money they earned after their hard work become a figure in their adsense account.

Aaron didn’t give up and he filed a case against Google adsense team. This is one of the incidents which I never heard till yet or never became popular.

After lots of arguments judge order Google adsense to pay 721$ +40$ (Court fees) = 761$ to the Aaron.

    My adsense account was disabled in which i earned around $ 560 without any reason , they said my account poses a risk of generating invalid activity.

    Can i sue adsense here in India.

    Pls Help.

    • Karshim Kanwar says

      Hey Haresh,

      Those things happen other countries, not in India. India already have thousands of cases, and for $560 claim you might need to pay $5,000 slowly, slowly to advocate, prepone the date of hearing and others.

    Yes, the same happened to me! recently my adsense account got disabled!! I was shocked to see the message when i tried to login. even my feedburner and other accounts got disabled! I don’t know why they are sp crazy. and adsense team have no defense for publishers if someone is purposefully trying to click on our ads, they simply disable the account!

    For a full time blogger, you can’t afford to have so many grammatical mistakes in your post. Almost every line has at least one mistake.

    • says

      I know Manu,
      English is not my primary language. Though I’m trying hard to overcome the silly and stupid Grammatical errors which I make. You will always see improved and better grammar in my recent post.

      Earlier I never tried to proofreading my posts, but now I’m making it a habit. It might take some more time. But I hope you will see Grammatical error free articles soon.
      Thanks for the suggestion, will look for more feedback from you.
