Turn Your Suspended Google Adsense Account Into Cash

by JT

Google AdSense is a great way to earn passive income. I mean, once a site has been filled with helpful content, good high paying keywords, AdSense placed strategically on a page - getting clicks and counting AdSense cash is when the fun really begins.

Depending on the type of niche you choose the clicks can be fast and furious or slow as molasses.

Unfortunately, as many affiliate marketing webmasters around the globe have discovered, whether the AdSense ads clicked were fast or slow, if any of these clicks look or seem suspicious to Google, your AdSense account could be given the axe and suspended immediately.

Too most this is bad news. I mean if you're used to collecting a nice AdSense check month after month in the mail or direct deposit, this is in all likelihood is a tragic loss to both your bank account and downer for morale.

There is good news tho' for those who have had their account suspended which I believe should put you back on the cash money track.

What I'm about to share is not a way to contact...or beg Google to let you back in. If you've been around awhile then you know getting your account back is pretty next to impossible.

Here are 3 ways to turn your Google AdSense luck around and cash in from your own misfortune.

1. Infolinks.com - If it's good enough for the team over at Squidoo, then it must be something worth looking into. For those of you who've been keeping up with changes at Squidoo, should by now be aware of some new advertisement testing taking place on lenses by Seth Godin and gang.

I believe the click outs on infolinks links must be profitable for Squidoo's website as I've personally noticed and huge decrease in clickouts on one of my moneymaking lenses since these links have made an appearance on my sites.

Signing up for infolinks.com is quite simple. I was able to sign up using a self hosted site that I host on hostgator and received approval into their program in about 48 hours.

2. Kontera.com - This is another alternative to google AdSense program that is ramping up quite nicely on one of my sites. In all fairness, I did not have AdSense placed on the site that I currently have Kontera ads placed but for what it's worth, I can see how this advertising venue can generate some nice cash for sites that receive lots of traffic that asks a lot of questions or look for product reviews.

The feature that I like best about this platform, unlike Google AdSense, is Kontera offers several detailed keyword report options. Not only can you see which keywords were clicked but you also have access to a detailed chart showing which URL's and Blog posts received clicks.

Signing up for Kontera.com is also rather easy. I was approved for this program instantly.

3. BYOLB - Become Your Own Lead Broker This final tip is the real inspiration behind my post today. Earlier today I received an email from one of the credit card merchants in the Google Affiliate Network today which stated the following:

"Hello there, Unfortunately, due to Google's cost, we are having to lower our payout to $3 per lead immediately. We would love to continue to do business with you, so please feel free to reach out to me directly and we can discuss running a campaign direct with us. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to discuss further."

What I'm about to say maybe glaringly obvious to most of you but it bears repeating for those of us who have to hear things a few times before the AHA moment happens....

Google AdSense is just a glorified Middleman for business leads...No more or no less.

After reading and rereading the email I received today, what this account manager essentially said was this...Call me if you want to arrange a better deal without Google.

If you're able to send quality traffic directly to a business, do you think they would pay your for it?

The short answer is Yes!

Don't be shy or reluctant to turn the traffic you used to send off to Google AdSense clients to your own lead clients instead.

Do you think you could do this for yourself? Is it something you believe you could make happen?
