I tried using adwords when I first got into the IM game over a year ago. I made some newbie mistakes. By the end of it, I "violated" their terms of service 2 times.
This included 1: I didn't properly put in the display domain that goes under the ad (I missed a hyphen or something). and 2: A landing site on one ad was not up to standard! It was a dang template site from an old IM membership area, and had no scammy phrases, nothing more than an page reviewing various IM products!
That's it. That's the only chance I got. I can no longer use adwords. I've been emailing google support back and forth for awhile now, and they will not un-suspend my account. They act like I was out to screw them from day one. They cannot accept a newbie mistake as an honest mistake.
I'm very frustrated, as now I've learned a lot about IM, and am ready to start getting into ppc, and I guess I'm going to have to use some other crappy service, or facebook or something.
Let this be a lesson for newbies out there. If you get into PPC, even if you buy a course teaching you how to do it, make SURE your teacher knows what he's doing in relation to googles TOS. If your adwords account is new, and you screw up 2 times (which is EASY TO DO), they will ban your account, and ANY OTHER ACCOUNT YOU TRY TO OPEN with adwords. No lie.
