Do you have Ads serving limits notification on your AdSense Dashboard? Are you looking for ways to prevent or how to fix ad limits on AdSense?
Majority of bloggers, Vloggers use AdSense to monetise their blogs and Youtube channels. For many publishers starting a blog or a youtube channel, AdSense is often the only ad network they prefer to use. Having ad limits notification at the top of your AdSense dashboard is a nightmare for most publishers.
In this post, I will explain in details what AdSense ad serving limits is, why Google AdSense allows it, different types of ad serving limits, how to overcome ad limits, and many more.
What is AdSense ad serving limits
When you see Ad limits notification on your AdSense dashboard, it means the number of ads displaying on your blog or channel has been reduced and this essentially means that your monetization efforts are limited, and you’re not able to reach your full ad revenue potential through AdSense.
Different types of AdSense ad serving limits
Have you ever wondered why Google AdSense is limiting the number of ads that can display on your blog?
Well, it is all about the integrity of their ad network. Google AdSense want to protect their advertisers from fraud, users from bad user experiences, and maintain good publisher relationships.
Often, ad serving limits can be temporary until specific issues regarding the quality of traffic are sorted out.
Currently, there are two different types of ad serving limits:
1. Account being assessed
When this limit occurs, AdSense is busy assessing your traffic quality. Often, there is no set time to wait for limits to be removed. They will automatically review and update the limit as they discover more information on your traffic quality. Once your traffic quality has been accessed and you are good to go, the notification showing ad limits will disappear from your AdSense dashboard.
2. Invalid traffic concerns
Very similar to when your account is being accessed.
In this situation, your account is being limited because Google AdSense have detected some invalid traffic concerns. Again, they will automatically review and update the limit as they find more information on your traffic quality.
What can you do to protect your AdSense account from ad serving limits?
While your AdSense account is being limited by Google, you still have access to it and can monitor the situation frequently. Google recommends that you continue creating content and marketing your site. However, with an emphasis on traffic quality and AdSense policies.
Start by reading over the AdSense program policies and make sure your site complies with all of them.
Also, read about invalid traffic concerns. This part is obvious if you received an “Invalid traffic concerns” limit. It’s also a good option for any publisher that wants to protect their AdSense account from invalid traffic.
AdSense accounts often get banned for invalid traffic, so it’s not something you want to mess around with. You want to distance your website from any form of invalid traffic.
