Submission + - banned by Google AdSense (

ramitk writes: Google has finally decided to disable the AdSense API from which Flixya was compensating it's users for "SHARING EVERYTHING". Flixya is a social networking kinda site, that gives 100% of the advertising royalties from Google AdSense to its users. Now that it has been banned from AdSense, it is no longer sharing the advertising revenue with it's users. Let's face it, Flixya had a poor image in the eyes of Google — all due to copy-pasted and plagiarized content. Alexa Internet shows that Flixya received only 15% traffic from search engines.

This is only the ad network that has banned Flixya. If the trend continues, it won't take any more time for the whole site to get sand boxed by the search engine Google itself.

Use the Force, Luke.
