Rejected adsense for forum

Hi,

I have started a forum which I have connected adsense to but after Google reviewed the website it says I got links to websites containing pirate material which a user have written. The question is: how can I use adsense on my forum when the users can post what they want? 
Do I need to check every post before they can post or how does this work?

Best regards

Unfortunately, AdSense appears to be regularly rejecting any forum websites that are used in an application for a new account. There is nothing you can do about it. There are no changes you can make. You can only accept this as the way things are and move on. I suggest finding another ad broker.

Last year, more than 90% of applications for full or Blogger hosted AdSense accounts were rejected. This year, that number has exceeded 96%. So less than four out of a hundred applications are accepted. The odds of getting a new AdSense account are extremely low and are virtually impossible with a website that has no commercial value and/or violates Google content policies.

Just to add to waht has already been said.

As far as AdSense is concerned you are the owner of the site and are therefore responsible for all content on it. If you choose to run a forum then it is up to you how you curate the content. Personally I run two forums, I have moderators and forum rules. Anyone breaks the rules then they get one warning and at the second instance are removed. Even with that in place I still don't risk my AdSense account on them.

Levels

Member levels indicate a user's level of participation in a forum. The greater the participation, the higher the level. Everyone starts at level 1 and can rise to level 10. These activities can increase your level in a forum:

  • Post an answer.
  • Having your answer selected as the best answer.
  • Having your post rated as helpful.
  • Vote up a post.
  • Correctly mark a topic or post as abuse.

Having a post marked and removed as abuse will slow a user's advance in levels.
