Today I got a message from Adsense
We recently detected invalid activity in your AdSense account. As a result, we’ve temporarily suspended your account for 30 days. During this time, no ads will be served on your sites.
Why was my account suspended?
We found that you were clicking on your own AdSense ads, which is prohibited by the AdSense Program Policies.
We understand that you may want to know more about the invalid activity we’ve detected. Because this information could be used to circumvent our proprietary detection system, we’re unable to provide our publishers with information about specific account activity, including any web pages or users that may have been involved.
This is a one-time, non-appealable suspension. After 30 days, we’ll automatically re-enable ad-serving on your account.
If you need more time to identify and stop the invalid activity, please remove your AdSense ad code from your sites to prevent ads from being displayed.
Please note that if any additional issues are found in your AdSense account in the interim period of suspension, your account may be permanently disabled even before the suspension period ends. Please review our list of top reasons for account closure to help you understand the possible reasons that publishers may have their accounts disabled.
If your account is found to have invalid activity in the future, it will be subject to additional penalties and may be permanently disabled.
How does the suspension affect my payments?
You will be eligible to begin receiving payments again once your account generates sufficient valid traffic.
As a result of the suspension, we are withholding the unpaid revenue in your account and refunding the balance, along with Google’s share, to affected advertisers. In addition, once ad-serving resumes on your sites, we will suspend any future payments for 30 days—you will earn revenue during this time, and, provided your account remains in good standing, that revenue will be paid in the next payment period.
how can I get back my AdSense account? please help me in this regard… Thanks

The first thing is “what not to do” don’t just sit around for 30 days waiting for the suspension to be lifted. Although the problem may not have been caused by you, this is a change that it might have been caused by you unknowingly. This is particularly true if you haven’t reviewed the policies recently (they do change from time-to-time, so it’s important to keep on top of this). This means it important for you to figure out what the problem(s) might be, otherwise you won’t know how or what to fix.
What you need to do is launch your own investigation.
– check your traffic sources (ie: referrals, where traffic is coming from)
– if using unauthorized traffic, get it stopped asap
– make sure you haven’t used poor or non-allowed methods of generating
– make sure your traffic is organic
– check your ad placements/locations and sizes
– thoroughly review the policies with respect to ad allowances per
page/sizes allowed where
– make sure you take steps to protect your properties as well as possible
– if you did/are clicking your own ads … shame on you. Stop it. Don’t do
it again. Ever.
Take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that there are no further problems: do this BEFORE the 30 days are up. Show AdSense that you are taking pro-active steps to try and correct whatever the issue is.
No, they aren’t likely to tell you “exactly” what is wrong. Whatever wording is in the email you received is about the only wording you’ll get from AdSense directly. If you’ve taken time to investigate and still aren’t sure what the problem is, or if you’ve fixed the problem then ask for help in the AdSense forum. The forum questions are mostly answered by your peers – others who may have already had to deal with a suspension, or others who might understand the best way to figure out the possible issues. Discussion is a good way to double check what you’ve already fixed and make sure you didn’t miss something.
