As far as ad serving limits are important to Adsense Team, we also noticed that this also could be a mere error, not related to you generating invalid traffic, but could be related to your blog layouts, contents language, Spam Comments and links, low quality ads from other advertisers, previous ad units, plugins with bot-related configuration, Ads.txt error, Auto ads misconfiguration, etc.
If you followed our previous article on how to Fix Ad serving has been limited(Invalid Traffic Concerns on Adsense)(Part-1), you will notice that part of the solutions was to remove and archive previous ad units on your Adsense account, the reason is, previous ad units that are not in use can cause this error and limit ads on your site or blog, so archiving them is one way to tell Google Adsense that you’re not making use of them at the moment, but it does not stop at archiving them, it helps better if you tell google to optimise and implement ads automatically on your site, this way, you have shown to the Adsense team that you can rely on them for implementing ads and that your primary focus is to build genuine and quality contents.
Let’s Get Started On Fixing Ad Serving Limit Placed on Your Adsense Account(Invalid Traffic Concerns) Part 2:

- There’s a plugin, called Google Site Kit, please do a little read on what this plugin does, and how effective this could help in placing ad in such a way Google Adsense does not feel the threat of seeing your site as a potential invalid traffic generator.
The most important thing about fixing Ad Serving limit is how Google Adsense Team sees ads on your site, if all of your web scripts contain too many google ad codes, especially, when you’re used to implementing ad codes manually, this also, can lead to invalid traffic concern. You may ask why? This is because too many ad codes pose threats of violations to google Adsense about your excessive implementation of ad codes to generate ads revenue, which is also considered to be invalid. Now, the use of a reliable plugin becomes a thought for action to remove this threat:
- Remove all ad codes from your blog or website, i mean all, don’t leave any part.
- If you implemented ad codes in plugins, please remove them or completely disable all plugins that have ad codes implemented through them.

- Temporarily Delete Ads.txt From Your Domain. What Is ads.txt?: To simply put, it’s an AIB initiative that helps ensures that you are showing ads from authorised ads sellers like Google Adsense. This further ensures that ads that display on your site have your consent as a Publisher and that of the advertiser(Google Adsense).

- Disable any Redirect Scrips or Plugin used to generate ads revenue, this could be the reason for invalid traffic concerns.
- Re-arrange your site layout.
- If you have set up Google Site Kit as shown above, temporarily disable Google Site Kit plugin, we will re-connect site kit as soon as Ad serving limit error is removed from our account.
