Many publishers are facing an AdSense account ban without knowing the specific reason. Most of the publishers contacted us and asked us about how to get their AdSense account back. Google ban publishers if Google found any invalid activity whether publishers are doing this invalid activity knowingly or unknowingly. Publishers should be pro-active in ensuring Google’s policies. But publishers do not have to worry because Mahimeta’s Shielding system saves publishers from getting banned directly by Google and protects you from all those malicious stuff that will cause publishers their account ban.
In this blog, we will discuss Mahimeta Shielding system, one of the unique features that make Mahimeta safer than other ad networks.
How does Mahimeta Shielding work?
Mahimeta Shielding system allows publishers to not get banned directly by Google. Publishers can monitor their analytics in the analytics tab after signing up with Mahimeta. In the analytics, tab publishers can monitor their website invalid activities which our system has blocked and some of them are blocked by our team manually. Below are the invalid activities that our system can detect:
- URL Blocking: Publishers get a list of URL by Google where there is policy violation like copyright, Adult content, etc. So instead of manually removing ads on those pages, publishers can remove ads by simply saving a URL like http://www.abc.com/xyz/page.php and our system will not render any ads on that page.
- Bad Keyword Blocking: Mahimeta scans each page in real-time where ads are rendered and if found any violating words then it will inform the publisher in the dashboard so the publisher can either block ads on that page or remove violating words.
- Automatic Word Changing: If the publisher is too lazy to change or block URLs then he can simply opt-in to change violating words with XXXX for example change word “Murder” on page with “xxxxxx” before Google ads are rendered. This will save publishers with future violations.
- Bad Traffic: Mahimeta system check in real-time bot traffic, empty user-agent and block those automatically which lead to Google AdSense ban.
- Top Browsers: Mahimeta system checks in real-time if the browsers are well known and only serve ads to those browsers which are legit. All other browser traffic is blocked automatically.
- Top Operating System: Mahimeta system check in real-time if OS, where traffic is coming, is legit or not and block ads which looks phishing OS.
- Countries: Mahimeta system check in real-time if traffic is coming from a real country or unknown and block traffic which is fake.

- IP Change: Frequent IP changing from a site viewer on a single session is usually fake. Mahimeta system blocks all traffic on second IP change on a particular viewer session.
- Overlapping Ads: Google bans AdSense if their ads overlapped by other content or out-page ads. Mahimeta system detects this overlapping and informs publishers to fix it in their dashboard.
- Missing UA: This means the user agent was missing from requests. It usually signifies bot traffic or fake traffic which Mahimeta system block.
