Violating Adsense Policies
Becoming an Adsense publisher means respecting and following each suggestion Google has written on their policy page or has been updating on their Adsense Blog. Otherwise, one’s account is disabled by Google with a painful email saying: “Your Account has been disabled due to a violation of our program policies“. Google generally does not disable an account without any reason. There are many reasons Google’s engineers do consider to terminate an account.
So we have to follow all the program policies by Google. There are millions of publishers and each one can’t be handled separately by Google. Everyone should carefully read the program policies and make the necessary changes before Adding AdSense ads to their web pages. If they understand their site has content violating Adsense policies or not meeting with Adsense policies then they should at least remove the Ads from their pages and work on the concerned areas.

Invalid Clicks & Impressions

Nowadays people don’t really care about content. But it is the most important thing in order to keep your Adsense account in good standing.
