I'm fairly new to all this "webmaster" stuff... I use WordPress and was hoping there is a plugin that could do most of the techy bits for me... Am I being to hopeful Joel?

 @Cleaner Geoff Yup... I vaguely remember my boyfriend saying something about A5. It's all gibberish to me though. I just hand it over to him to fix x

 @tonygreene113 hehe... yeah it is usually who, rather than what, you know!

 

I don't think using Adsense is bad, but you need to be a little careful and understand their terms. People often complain after being banned for breach of TOS yet probably didn't even read them or they may have never been banned in the first place :)

There are a few things that could have caused the account closure.

 

1 - Competitor / self click-fraud.

It's all to easy be tempted into clicking your own ads or even to find competitors clicking your adverts to get your account closed. There is nothing you can do about the latter.

 

2 - Bad content.

Google is very kind by waiting until you hit about $90-$98 before letting you know your content is against their TOS. Sometimes they even give you a chance to remove it before banning you... Aren't they just lovely? /sarcasm

 

3 - Making statistics public.

As you mention above; Google's TOS forbids allowing people access to your statistics. They can, and will, ban you for doing so.

 

4 - No reason what-so-ever.

Google does, sometimes, just close accounts. No reason given. No recourse. Nada.

There is absolutely nothing you can do against such arbitrary rulings.

 

I stopped using my Adsense account as I just don't agree with how Google handles these types of issues. There is absolutely no way to negotiate, comply, or complain.

I have made far much more money using other companies for my eCPM/CPC adverts ;)

 

Oh, did I mention Google has an internal arbitration clause to prevent publishers taking legal action against such matters? Well, they do!

@Ryan Oakley It all seems fine now... Not sure what it was but my AntiVirus didn't agree with it. I have never had it before so I assumed it was just a weird error.

There is something on this page making my AntiVirus go nuts :(

Not sure if it's related but the comment box is very tall too!

I use ESET by the way.

I have been playing with LiveFyre and love it so far... The social aspects are pretty awesome.

Liking, in-linking, listeners, et al... WordPress has a few things to learn and implement before I switch back :)

My partner and I have been considering renewing our vows but just can't decide how or where!

I want to book a holiday to Vegas and do something a little odd for the ceremony, but my partner isn't too keen on the idea.

I wish I had the money to follow in my fav celebrities footsteps... I don't think that will ever happen though :(

It hink it's about time SatNav was updated.

I think it's a bit dangerous to try and change route while driving, which I see all the time when driving!

Full voice would be amazing!

"Sure she is evil and all"; Made me chuckle hehe :)

Seriously though, a question: do you think LiveFyre has had a positive or negative effect on the commenting process?I've heard some very strong opinions from both sides and am going to be implementing it on my blog soon as I love the added features such as likes, listening, and profile linking in comments.
