Prevent Getting Banned From Adsense

Dont ever get banned from adsense if you have clicked your ads,by mistake…follow this technique

The way I keep this from happening is I temporarily block
the domain name Google’s ads are served from.

First, find your HOSTS file which depends on which os you are using.

Open Notepad or any text editor.   Go to File, and Choose Open.

If you have Windows 95, 98, or ME browse to the folder

If you have Windows XP Home browse to the folder

If you have anything else (Windows XP Pro, Windows 2000, NT,
2003, etc.) browse to the folder:

Once you’re there, open the file called “hosts”. If you
don’t see anything listed just type the word hosts and the
file should open up. Just the word “hosts”, no extension or
anything after that. It’s probably blank but it might not

Add this line:

And save. You’re done.

Now go back to a site that you know has some Google Ads.
There should be an empty space where the ads appeared.

Want to turn it off? Don’t just delete it, put a “#” sign in
front of that line, like this which is equivalent to commenting the statement:


What’s that do? It basically says “ignore this line.” I like
to leave it like that so when I want to hide Google Ads
again, all I have to do is remove the “#” sign and save –
then put the “#” back in when I’m ready to go back to

To me, making a quick change in your HOSTS file to turn
AdSense on and off is easier than fiddling around with a
firewall program.

Hope this helps.
