    It seems that there are several blog, teaching other blogger of how to illegally earn money via Adsense, check: http://propakistani.pk/2009/03/25/how-people-in-pakistan-are-teaching-people-to-illegally-earn-through-adsense/

    If the same is to be followed, we will be seeing a lot of India A/c being banned by Google, with the increasing number of ads showing up in the newspapers and Free online classifieds

    Actually this is the first time I am hearing about the such mass banning. Seems like there is some algorithm kinda thing. Things will get worse in these case if people are completely depend upon Adsense. If you are starting your career as a professional blogger then this is really tough time. dont worry mates. Patience is the key

    This is very bad for fellow Pakistani bloggers, don’t know why but I think this action maybe happening due to worsening relations between u.s. and pak.

    @Zeeshan- Google takes a long time to respond to appeal. Atleast a week or two.

    This is a very disappointing by Google. If they’re so capable of judging the invalid clicks than why don’t they develop such a check rule which farms copy paste website and auto-generated articles via feeds.
    You said there are chances of Adsense being re-instated, but I hardly think they re-instate the ban accounts. Chances are too less.

    Unfortunately, the current political conflicts between Pakistan and USA is the main reason behind all this crap. There are definitely some bloggers who violates Adsense terms and conditions, but the question is that is Pakistan the only country where bloggers write copy pasted stuff or violate Adsense terms and conditions? Definably NOT!

    So, if Google have soft corner in its heart of bloggers of other countries then it should not be so harsh to Pakistani bloggers. Google is a big company so it should behave like a great company instead of behaving like a puppet in Zionist hands!

    Well, its not only related to tech blogs but to many other niches as well. They even banned the adsense account of a news website as well. Even my account is banned when i am 200% sure i did not violate any policy or anything. I filed an appeal but no reply yet. Lets hope for the best. And i think its time some steps should be taken to find out the reason for all this.

    I have heard about this crackdown in other countries too. Looks like an algorithm is flagging such scraped content sites for Panda and Adsense banning is simply a bonus for Google.

    Google sent same Email to all publishers, no apeal respond. Just receieved auto responder email. and I ahve received 4 times payment by same account same blog. Google could send a warning email before banning or google should clearly tell reason of mass banning. forum contributers are just replying this issue loq quality, useless, bla bla but no one tell actual problem, Google think that all pakistanis are spammers. its not a good way, Dear Google try to enhance your spam control algorithm instead of mas banning. one of my friend lost $3000, Check this link and see how many innocent pakistanis lost their accounts.

    Google does not care where you from, which country ,They once banned amitbhawani.com to0! At that time Adsense ads not displayed on his domain than he contacted someone from Google Adsense team than only he was able to get back his Ads on that domain ,Not everyone like him there are so many small Adsense publishers.I think if you only bloggging to earn through Adsense,Gone are the days the situation is not like before ,you should try other alternative to make it work for you ,Dependent on Adsense is fully rubbish and this time pakistan may be other time India.Try other alternatives like CPA(there are lot of money to make in this industry),other networks like buysell ads etc. to make it work for you than you don’t need Adsense account ever for their small pennies ..:)

    This is sad. Sometimes these bad stuff are just actions of certain individuals and affect everyone else within the process. I am sure that this “mass” banning perhaps affected legitimate and hard working individuals which are now faced with a difficult situation. I agree with you, that f this happens to someone, perhaps it is better to find out what happened, rectify it and request for an appeal. Alternatives to AdSense are really not that good. Anyway, I do hope that the Pakistan Gov one day allows PayPal to operate there. It does not make sense why not. They are even losing potential tax revenue form this.

    Ok had gone through this case and studied many sites of pakistani fellow bloggers and i found that most sites which were banned are offering downloads of pirated softwares and songs, seems like the ban is genuine.

    Yes you are right harsh. Its not Google’s fault its mainly our fault. Most of the Pakistani bloggers like me haven’t have there blog’s Privacy Policy, ads were too close to our blogs main links and blog themes are also so old and crappy.

    Google is behaving like a dictator. It bans accounts after they reach payout and keep the hard earned money of the publishers. Google alternatives should become popular so that Google’s dictatorship mentality can be checked.

    Google just like that bans an account without a warning. See, how much hard work a writer puts in blogs, they simply remove blogspot blogs and delete ad sense account just like that.

    Google thinks they are God. G for God. Google means dictator.

    i think not any particular type of blogs are banned, some did wrong and get banned. By the way i am one of them as well.

    i have seen many blogs placing more than 3 ads on every page, moreover the contents are of shit quality and still they have such high PR..Reason why Google is banning the accounts and came out with panda update..

    I was really worried about my adsense account, but gladly everything came out to be fine and my first cheque got issued…:D

    Feeling sad for those who lost their accounts…

    Its amazing that people expect lot of things with Google but doesn’t want to update there own blog. I have seen many Pakistani blogs with same old Free WordPress themes and after earning so many years from Adsense they are not willing to spend some money to buy a premium WordPress theme.
