The site must not be incomplete or under construction, should not be specifically designed for advertising purposes, should not contain objectionable content such as pornography, gambling, and piracy, and not have a history of breaking copyright laws. Publishers are prohibited from engaging in unethical practices such as using bots or proxies to generate fake traffic, manipulate clicks or impressions, or click on their own ads. A publisher caught engaging in such activities automatically loses his or her account without pay.
