Search up "Google adsesne denied criteria fair" and see what you find.

Seems to me that google bans your site for a surge in views, (which in some cases is perfectly explainable). Doesn't seem reliable at all to me. It also seems to be looking for allot more than they say in their FAQ. ( Like proper language, quick loaders,  good blog topic (original blog topic), amount of pages, personal info on blog, blog ownership (no pseudonyms) etc...Any thoughts?

From an advertising standpoint or from a revenue stream standpoint? If you're talking about revenue, I have quite a bit of experience, no problems and it's a nice passive income. The problem is it all depends on your posting, your readers' surfing habits and the competition on ads.

Both

Like I said, I'm not well-versed in the ads side of it but optimizing sites is part of what I do in my day job so I am familiar with the passive-income side of things. If you have questions, I can try to answer.

Never bothered, as I felt that advertising would compromise the artistic feel of my blog.

I did too.

I used Adsense for about two  months on my blog. I found that a lot of the ads were not relevant to my blog content. Instead I changed to Amazon Associates which is more compatible with my book blog. However in both cases I have not had any income.

I have over 17,000 page views and lots of followers but no one is buying...At least the Amazon Search box is there if anyone wants to order from the blog (A few have)...So for me, none of it worked very well in terms of income...but I keep blogging on...

I have tried Google Adsense in the past and it doesn't generate enough income to really matter, and it clogs your blog up with ads that aren't always relevant to your blog. That's just my own personal experience and take on it. I get quite a few page views and wasn't generating enough income to keep clogging my blog up with stuff that wasn't even relevant.

Seems like once I cancelled Adsense and quit running the ads I've gotten even more visitors.

They sent me email after email telling me all the reasons that I should give them money to advertise with adsense. I have a blog through google. One of the things they encourage you to do is join adsense, put their widget on your page, and start collecting money. Well, I applied and they denied my account because my web page, the google page, did not meet their criteria. Doesn't make much sense to me, but I'm still waiting for a response from customer service.
