First post; glad to be here. Got a question I hope someone can help me with.
I am marketing my first product site, selling an ebook through clickbank. It's a minisite /sales letter site at the moment.
I want to turn on google adwords traffic, but I'm scared because my adwords account already received a cease and desist message from google warning me from trying to advertise any more low quality score websites using adwords. That was before, when I was focused solely on affiliate marketing.
Since my current site is selling a product, as opposed to an affiliate site, I would probably have more leeway in the eyes of Google. However, I'm still scared that google would slap my domain and / or ban me as an adwords user all together.
That's why I want to do things the right way from start, so I minimize my risk of getting banned or slapped. I know that google can still ban or slap for any reason or for no reason, but here's what I'm thinking.
To minimize the risk of getting slapped:
- Expand the minisite with an article section containing at least 10 completely unique articles.
- Expand my frequently asked questions page.
- Getting into some good directories like Yahoo or at least getting some incoming links to my site
- Putting full contact details including physical address and phone number on the site.
