I don’t think, Google can entirely disabled an account without any reason. There are many reasons Google’s engineers consider when they finally decide to terminate an account.

Invalid Clicks & Impressions

This is the very first key point, and most of you aware of it. But I would mention one thing here, that don’t visit your site again and again if you have very low traffic or just few impressions. Because the number of impressions you give yourself can be a percentage of your total impressions; and its not a good experience. And clicking on your ads or using any method to click your own ads means; you don’t love your Adsense account.

Content Guidelines

Now a days people don’t really care about content. But it is the must thing in order to keep your Adsense account in Good Standing.

Copyrighted Material

This is the most important factor which is concerned these days for disabling Adsense Accounts. Most of the new publishers particularly from South Asia start websites/blogs by copying other people’s content and somehow they get Adsense account, And after few days Google detect their copyrighted content and their account got disabled. So be very careful in this, If you have copied content on your blog then your Adsense account will be surely banned sooner or later. So never insert Google ads on pages having copyrighted material.

Privacy Policy

This has also become a major reason for Disabling Adsense accounts. Whenever you decided to display Google ads on your site, you must first create a clear privacy policy for your site and put it on the home page. The privacy policy is for your site’s visitors who are viewing Google ads as well. This Policy must tell the visitor that how you’re site is using users’ information and private data. Also you should mention in privacy policy that you’re using third-party advertisements on your blog, so Third-parties may be using some tools or cookies to collect the visitors’ information i.e IP address, browser etc in order to provide better results.

Some Other key points you should consider
