I started doing PPC 3-4 days ago.I was making money on Facebook when I got an error message. I didn't think much of it and tried to scale to google. I got banned from Google. Then today banned from MSN.
All I did was run one direct link to this product: paleo recipe book(google it i can't post the link...it happens to be a very good product btw.) I had read various reports that direct linking with adwords CAN be done as long as the sites follow the T&C. I also saw other people direct linking to the same product. So I was like woot! it's ok. This appears wrong.
Here's an example email from MSN I got this morning (who don't supposedly use the ban hammer so much)

Facebook has yet to send me an email but they turned off my spending privileges 3 days ago.
All my accounts have been charged and paid. Anybody have any idea whats going on??? Are they really just this harsh for direct linking??
