So a few days ago, I wrote a post about Tuber Simulator. The idea was very simple: to capitalise on a what I thought was an opportunity to score some clicks and drive traffic to the blog. At the most, I’d make a few cents.
What I did not expect was Adsense to tell me that my payment on hold. This amuses me for the following reasons:
- I am nowhere near the payment threshold.
Min payment is USD100. I’ve not even made USD 5!
My website kept going down
This has nothing to do with the amount of traffic I’m getting, which is to say, decent. However, I was testing a few things on a different domain, and that led to frequent timeouts (story for another post).
I should have expected this
But I completely forgot about it. xD
I think what’s happened is that my account is being investigated due to unusually high traffic. I admit I didn’t expect this to happen when I started that SEO experiment. My biggest hope now is that this will not lead my Adsense account being banned. That would just be tragic.
