How to Check if a Website is Banned from Using AdSense


AdSense is one of the most popular advertising and monetization techniques used by bloggers worldwide. The best thing about AdSense are

Quality ads

timely payout

well-known brand name.

A normal user may or may not differentiate between a normal 3rd part ad Vs. Google AdSense ads, but for a blogger it’s easy to figure out what advertisement platform is being used by someone.

Despite all the good reviews about AdSense, you will hear lots of complaints about AdSense like:

And stuff like this, which is still ok from my point of view, ad AdSense team works day and night to offer quality service. Recently one of my tech site ( AdSense serving was disabled due to ad placement (Which I’m unsure why it happened), I decided to keep AdSense away from that site, and try different ad networks like Setupad.

Right now, I’m a shot to Setupad and will share my detailed review soon. You can see the company profile and other details here. Also, if you are interested to know why Google team bans somebody’s AdSense account, here is a detailed guide for the same.

From a blogger perspective (When we buy or sell a website), you should be checking many things and one of them is the status of AdSense serving for the site you planning to buy. This will ensure that you might not end up buying websites, where you can’t use AdSense ads. Here I’m sharing a few AdSense penalty checker websites, which you can use for any website to check if AdSense ad serving is allowed or disabled for that domain.

List of Websites to check AdSense penalty for a domain:

Google Banned Check:

AdSense Banned Checker

This is the first site in the list, and it solves two purpose. It will let you check any domain for AdSense ban and also if the domain is banned from Google search. This is very handy when you are buying a used domain or buying an existing website. All you need to do is add the domain name in the box, and click on submit. It will show you the report as shown in the above picture. When you are using this tool, make sure to try www and non www variant of the domain name you are checking. <Link>

Google AdSense sandbox:

This is a multi-purpose tool by Indian pro-blogger Amit Agarwal. This tool is mainly designed to check contextual and geo-targeted ads, and at the same time, it can be used to check for AdSense penalties for any given domain. Simply go to this link, add the domain name you want to check for, select the region and click on peview ads. If you see all the ad spots are blank, that means the AdSense account is banned for a particular domain.

Is Banned:

This is another simplest AdSense tool to check the Ad serving status for a domain. , add the domain name and click on submit to check the status of the AdSense account for a particular domain. Simple and easy.

I have listed only 3 websites above, but to check whether AdSense is banned or not, these will be handy. Especially if you are into Website flipping,  it’s a good idea to check the status of AdSense ad serving for a particular domain. For me, this is not the first time I had issues with AdSense serving, and I already mentioned about it here.

As I mentioned in one of my earlier articles, AdSense is not the end of blog monetization. There are many better ways to monetize your blog, if you don’t have an approved account or your account just got disabled.

Do you know of any other useful website to check AdSense banned status? Also, what advertising network do you prefer after Google AdSense?

    I think is not trusted anymore, it is showing most of the websites banned from Google adsense. I have checked many reputed websites which are already serving google ads and this website is showing them banned.
