I received “The Number of Ads You Can Show Has Been Limited” notification on Google Adsense dashboard on 15th September 2022. Actually Google started to flag it on 13th September 2022 and stop showing ads on 15th September.
It means that Google will stop showing ads to your website pending further investigation by Google and due to this I have zero daily revenue for my website.
Why The Numbers of Ads Has Been Limited?
According to Google’s website, this is due fishy traffic from illegal way of getting traffic to the website.
It is automatic detection by Google. When it is flagged, Google team will evaluate and Google doesn’t give any timeline how long it takes them to evaluate. Based on other people experience it took 2 – 4 weeks to lift the ban or continue it until the illegal traffic is resolved.
Why Google Automatically Detected My Website’s Traffic Is Fishy?
I suspected that due to my website’s traffic pattern which has a spike on certain period of time and suddenly drop drastically.
I know this based on Google Analytics statistics. I have one article where I have sudden increase and sudden drop of visitors based on certain period where it is normal due to the nature of its content.
What To Do?
When I check my Google Analytics I didn’t have any spike of bots visits to my website or any kind of fishy traffic.
So I decided not to do anything because I know I didn’t do anything illegal on my traffic.
Of course I don’t have any more my daily income but based on all articles I read, it is best to do nothing if the traffic is legal.
Google Started To Show Ads
After not showing any ads on 15th September, Google started to show ads on 27th September 2022. I started to earn very small income and it grows slowly.
If you don’t have any illegal traffic just wait for Google to evaluate the automatic detection by their system.
Finally I reached my threshold of USD100 to allow me to withdraw my Google AdSense income.
When try to set up my wire transfer as payment method, I notice there is this remarks at Google AdSense saying “To receive payouts by wire transfer, contact your bank for exchange rates and fees. Bank account must be located in Malaysia and in US Dollar currency.”
So I wonder whether I need to set an account in USD in order to receive the fund. I googled but couldn’t find anything.
So what I did, I just set up wire transfer using my account in Malaysian Ringgit.
Setting Up The Wire Transfer Using Malaysian Ringgit Bank Account
Email Notification AdSense Payment Has Been Transferred from Google
The Fund Received
Alhamdulillah I received the payment. So meaning you can receive your AdSense income just using our normal Malaysian Ringgit Bank Account. I’m using Maybank and Maybank SWIFT code is: MBBEMYKLXXX
It took 5 days or 3 business days as Google wire transferred the fund on 21st January 2021 and I received it on 25th January 2022.
