According to Google if you are tricking Google, you are indirectly scamming the ad publishers. That will make sure that people will not advertise on Google anymore. That is a bad thing for Google among many other things. We are eligible for revenue only if we have something worth advertising.
Imagine you have a barren land. Who will want to advertise there in comparison to a shopping mall's hot spot ? So if you trick Google with barren land, which is a low-quality content website, you are causing a loss of revenue to a lot of people. And making Google an accessory to it. Obviously they will respond with full power.
Jason This applies for their own blogging service too?
Yes, Adsense, Admob or any other monetising platform that Google provides, and no matter we use Blogger or not.
