Inevitable has happened, and Adsense has sent a notice that there has been some sort of copyright infringement, and chapter #561 of Emperor's Domination has been pointed out as an example.

In those cases there are only 5 solutions:

  1. Deleting Emperor's domination and hoping that it was the only thing they had problems with,
  2. Hiding Emperor's domination from eyes of the bot, and hoping that it was the only thing they had problems with,
  3. Switching from Adsense to different ads platform,
  4. Discarding ads platforms and managing them individually,
  5. Deleting all ads and switching to Patreon model, where monthly pledges of donation would be the only source of income keeping the website alive.

If anyone wonders what Google Adsense and ads platform are, then in very short it's middleman between those that want sth advertised, and those that want to earn money for displaying ads. Why is it so good? Mostly because it requires zero effort on my part, and there are absolutely zero of annoying ads for readers, so it's perfect even if revenue from ads is subpar. It's also nice because in case of Adsense it displays ads depending on size of your browser (so it won't break page because of ad).

As for what I have chosen, it's obvious - I have selected second option. But it's temporary solution, since who knows when google will strike back, and it doesn't solve the core of the problem.

The ideal solution for me would be 5th option, even if the current revenue were to drop by 30%, because I myself am not fan of ads. Still, I doubt it's possible, and that's why I will in some days create survey for that purpose.

Not ideal, but most realistic option is the 4th option. I have deeply rooted hatred for annoying ads in my bones, and also I am far too lazy and inexperienced with that type of ads, so with all the cons - I am against that solution, even if the pro is most likely rise in the income.

Still, since it's most realistic option then I would appreciate if someone were to share his experience of how self-managing ads works, and how to efficiently deal with it, so that I am not too abruptly awakened from my utopia, and prepared for that case. If someone wishes to contact me, then My Chat Profile is the best way.


So with all that in mind, it's time for you all to pray.
