  1. Wow, that 3second intro thing is pretty awesome! It doesn't affect my life at all but I could see how long time Youtubers could gain from this nice trick.

    And the video if the week really proofs it that Mother Nature is the best Youtuber!

  2. I just experienced Google Adsense Fraud. Lost my Google Adsense Account and my Partnership with Youtube. The most horrible part, I have no idea why they disable my account. I have done nothing against the Policies or Terms of agreement. 

  3. I'm really glad you covered this story. The thing that makes this whole thing sketchy is how closed off and private the Adsense team has been from the world for all these years. 

  4. Let me get this straight, there is a billion dollar company banning people at a whim, and you want to talk about it, when most of your income comes from said company? How do you think that is going to work out for you?

  5. Good take on the AdSense story. The fact that, assuming that pastebin was written by an angry user, someone would say those things clearly shows that there are issues within AdSense. It's certainly Google's most mysterious product that has essentially no human-to-human interaction with it. Zero transparency.

  6. I don't think at any point in time google would be in need of that cheaty adsense money. Unless they got greedy. The fact that they have really itchy trigger fingers on bans is really true. That doesn't look good But again this pastebin post might be from someone who got banned and (possibly and rightfully) angry.

  7. If you live off Adsense, it's worth watching this video. I don't take sides, and Google HAS denied the conspiracy theory, but it certainly is interesting! #YouTubeWeekly  

  8. I believe there's an issue with the system, but I don't belive it's greed related as the report of that person tries to make us to believe! I have a friend that makes a lot of money from AdSense for a lot of time and he never got banned!

  9. True. This happened to me. I got click-bombed. Google reversed earnings, which was appropriate, but then closed my account and kept all my legitimate earnings!!!!

  10. Man I just love your show and I hope to be the channel of the week 😀 keep up the good work.

  11. I've had 7 accounts banned right before getting paid and now they banned my largest channel that spawned my other growing channels n banned it with 800,000 views and over 1,000videos on it yeah I believe it's true no matter what Google says

  12. Everybody knows they do this. I wonder why there hasn't been a class action suit yet.  Yahoo was sued and they paid out some big bucks.  This industry needs regulation.  If you were to not pay a salary to an employee you could be in real hot water but screw an affiliate or publisher then you could get away with it because there are no laws really protecting you.

  13. the 2 most enraging thing I find about this(to understand this list u will have to read the article provided in the link) :
    1. google is practically stealing money from people that need it to put food on their table
    2. in the blue group the bans are mostly pick and click-no special reason

  14. It's true. Adsense is a pack of heartless thieves. They banned my account just before payment because I didn't fit into their messed up algorithm. Too bad they are the monopoly. I have tried to appeal, but I just get form letters back. I don't think that humans ever viewed it. You may not want to believe this, but it's true. This started 2012. So, if you had a successful channel before then, you don't have to worry.
