ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO CLICK ON YOUR ADS
Once in a while, google is going to send a manual reviewer to your website to check if in any way you encourage people to click on your ads. Any form of writing that tells your audience either directly or indirectly to click on your ads will result in your Adsense account being banned.
A lot of people run a pay per click program on their blog where they pay their readers depending on the amount of click they make on the ads on their blog, if you do this, they are surely going to ban you from the rest of your life from using the program.
Google Adsense is the most prestigious ads network for publisher worldwide and getting banned for life will be the last thing you would want.
ALTERING THE ADS CODE
A lot of tech bloggers who are familiar with programming always take it as a good practice to alter the ads display code given to them by Google Adsense, once you do so, you expose your account to receiving a ban.
Google made it extremely clear in their terms of service that publishers should place the code as they see it and make no alteration of any kind to it. So stick by the rules and you would have no problem with them.
OVER STUFFING PAGES WITH ADS
Although Google Adsense gives you the freedom of placing as many ads code on a single page, you must know that placing an outrageous amount of ads on a single page with poor contents will lead to an ads limit being served on your website.
Place ads only where necessary and I would recommend nothing more than 3 ads unit for an article with less than a thousand words of contents.
You can also auto regulate the process why using the google auto ads technology to get things set up, google is in the best position to tell you how things should be done, so letting them do it by themselves is a great way to make progress.

Pop under and Pop over ads are strictly not to be used on a website with Google Adsense, this is because they destroy user experience, in fact, no other banner display ads unless they are private ads and not from ads networks should be placed on your website.
Google Adsense is more than enough to monetize your contents when you talk of ads, so kindly stick with it.
You can also use a lot of AI tools and services such as ezoic, mediavine and adthrive to improve the performance and conversion rate of your ads units.
If you have keep to all these rules above, be rest assured that you are going to have a safe ride with Google Adsense. Also do ensure that you only possess a single Google Adsense account as Google Adsense is strictly against the use of multiple accounts.
