What is Adsense Ad Serving Limit?
In middle 2019, Adsense added a Policy Restriction Policy Called the Ads Limit or Limited ads given to any active adsense account found guilty of invalid traffic, invalid clicks or any invalid activities like clickbaits, buying of traffic etc.
According to what Adsense Posted on their Policy Center Page Invalid traffic includes any clicks or impressions that may artificially inflate an advertiser's costs or a publisher's earnings. Invalid traffic covers intentionally fraudulent traffic as well as accidental clicks.
Invalid traffic includes, but is not limited to:
- Clicks or impressions generated by publishers clicking their own live ads
- Repeated ad clicks or impressions generated by one or more users
- Publishers encouraging clicks on their ads (examples may include: any language encouraging users to click on ads, ad implementations that may cause a high volume of accidental clicks, etc.)
- Automated clicking tools or traffic sources, robots, or other deceptive software.
Clicks on Google ads must result from genuine user interest, and any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions is strictly prohibited by our Program policies. If we observe high levels of invalid traffic on your account, we may suspend or disable the account to protect our advertisers and users. Additionally, if we are unable to verify the quality of your traffic, we may limit or disable your ad serving. Due to invalid clicks, you may also see a difference between your estimated and finalized earnings.

ad serving limit or temporary ad serving limit policies can be very annoying especially when it takes longer than expected, personally i have had this ad serving limit placed on my adsense acct for 3-4 times and the first time i had it, lasted for a month, and i tried the above steps and it worked perfectly for me, it can work for you too, all you need is Patience and avoid invalid activities, Adsense hates Clickbait, Buying of traffic from unknown sources and platforms as well as Clicking your own ads and so on.
the bottomline is that if you want to stay long with the adsense platform then follow their rules and regulations and your good to go.
