Adwords Account Suspended. Now What Do I Do?

I know this has been asked before but I can't find the thread so I thought I would start another one.

My Adwords account was suspended for not meeting landing page and site policies, but for the life of me I can't figure out what they found to be misleading or potentially harmful on either of my sites.:confused:

I have a privacy policy and a disclaimer stating I am an affiliate and make money if they buy through any of my links.

I have read and re-read all my posts and most of them I have published on E-zine Articles also, but apparently Google doesn't like something.:rolleyes:

Anyways, I have read their policies several times but still can't figure out what they are seeing that's wrong.

Should I just forget about Adwords or is there a way to get them reconsider? Any help anybody can give me would be appreciated

    Yeah just open a new account and get a VCC to verify it.

    Of course they told you not to open a new account. That's why you need to use a VCC (virtual credit card) so you can open a new account with different sign-up details.

        No problem. You can just use any random name, not neccessarily your husband/son.

        You will need a clean computer.

        New IP, should use cloud computing.

        New address.

        New credit or debit card.

        Billing address has to stick.

        Different profile.

        Do not use that same Landing page.

        I know people who get banned Weekly.

        There is often a lot of crap peddled, so before you run out and become a second identity why not let people see why you were banned , have a look at your page and and fix any errors first.

        Google should have an email on your notice saying to contact them if its an error / if so ask them to let you know whats wrong and then fix and re submitt your page to google to have it cleared.

        / edit let me see its that site in your sig yes ?

        its a bridge page that is also connected to click bank / the replies are total rubbish in the blog / it is covered in adsense which is very poor marketing at best / / it was never going to pass googles rules.

        you could rebuild that page to make some sense and re float your account ? / again another click bank disaster with adwords. take a place in the long line before you and the many to follow

          I'm not quite sure what you mean by a bridge page but it's linked to the products landing page. I do have the maximum allowed Adsense on my site but looks like Google would like that? My page makes perfect sense to me, tell me what is wrong with it?

          Instead of being so condenscending try telling me what is wrong my page if you don't mind?

            this will best explain a bridge page for you > Bridge page - Advertising Policies Help

            In regards the adsense, the reference was in the light of if you are paying to send targeted traffic to that page, having any other ad on there at all defeats the purpose of using adwords in the first place. Your land page should exactly direct people to your purpose not lead to multiple confusing options

            The replies on that page are not good user quality and probably relate to no more than spam by people building links to crap sites, this in effect is like have adsense but worse as your paying people to go to the page with adwords then giving those spammers a free ride on your $, they need to be removed

            The page itself is probably not the best laid out in design, appeal or function if I can say it that, It looks like a kid built it in 5 minutes with 4 minutes to spare, again take as much care as you can in setting this page up when your spending your $ or even not and with organic traffic

            In normal circumstances by sending out those CB links to the payment page you probably would avoid the bridge page rule, given everything else was fixed, how ever in this case i very much doubt this would work as you are linking to a click bank product and as such giggle will go you no love.

            To fix your problem this is probably one of your better workarounds, but comes with no promise as I do not work for google

            First using the supplied email send a reply of apology and that you will fix the site and the resubmit it for evaluation.

            Use the same theme of get your ex back, get or rewrite several good quality articles or or reviews but instead of linking them to the click bank product, link them to an amazon book and it must be linked to the payment / check out

            It may be best to review even 3 or 4 books here

            Remove all of the adsense from the page, add all support pages to that site, about us contact us. terms privacy etc etc

            Remove the testimonials, and in the end make a very neat as a pin and highly polished site, then resubmit that to google for evaluation, it may not float the first time and may need to be resubmitted and it may never pass but that should go very close.

            Look up wolfmii here to get a free guide on how to set one of those sites up as well as it will help you.

            Good luck with it.

    Whatever you do, do NOT open a new account. You just run the risk of getting all accounts banned and then you got nothing left.

    Instead, fix what is getting you suspended in the first place. That's what Google wants you to do and opening another account is 1) not fixing the problem and 2) showing them that you don't care or want to follow their policies.

    Read their policies carefully. Understand them. If you don't understand, ask them, ask here or get an expert to help you. It would help us if you gave more details. What's the URL for starters. If it's the one in your sig, yep, you have a bridge page.

    Thanks everybody for your help, I think I will just forget marketing, apparently, I suck at it. I do like to write so maybe I should have someone make me a landing page and become an article marketer.

    Would anyone mind looking at my site that is in my signature and giving me some feedback? I really like having someone tell me what works and how to make it better.

    Thanks again, you all are great

      Well, you ended up giving the homepage link instead of the landing page. You might wanna correct that.
      Also, I see you have spammed some pages to death with so many affiliate links without, WITHOUT,providing any information.

    You can open a new account with a new Credit card, email and address. But your current website which caused in suspending your current account may not work omn new account. You need to change the domain name. Ofcourse you also need to make the landing page compatible with adwords policies.

    NB: I have done this before. After my account got suspended I had made several 100s of new acounts and advertised the same website by changing domains and I used $100 vouchers too everytime.

    You can try clickbank or cj as an alternative, but they can't compare with adsense..

    Automated emails are only used to communicate the hesit of specific actions (like account suspended). However, especially in paid services like AdWords, if you contact the customer service, you'll get answers. Finally, in this forum (I am referring to the new AdWords Community, because this area is the old one and I think it will be closed soon) there are many Google employees answering to questions.

    Adwords has been horrible to me as well. I have had 2 accounts suspended. The funny thing is one of the accounts the ads were written by their adsense team for me, figure that one out. I just assume its there coupons, if you use a coupon your already suspect lol.

    How about bussines name and tax ID? Do you need to change this as well? Because that might be a problem in the country I live in.

    I need to receive invoices with my company name, address and TAX ID in it in order to be able to deduct the advertising costs from my earnings.

    In other words: when I spend $100 and make $200 I have to pay tax over $100. When I can't show them invouices with my bussines name on it I will have to pay tax over $200.

    And yes, in the country where I live they can and will check invoices.

    Actualy, I`ve recently experienced a similar problem: I received a free coupn and created a new adwords account to use it, but Google immediately closed the new account, reporting the invoicing profile can not be confirmed (wtf?!)

    Then, I tried to create a new account, but I had the same problem; than another, one, and another one, another one again, but Google immediately blocks it!

    Of course for each account I change name, address, phone nr. ecc; I also did it from a different computer, to avoid to use the same IP address, but it still doesn`t work!

    Any idea about why and how I can bypass the problem?!

    According to me first of all check your google account, why your account has been suspend, there are lots of reason behind it. The reasons that an adword account might get suspended.
    1) Might be your site display only ad 2) You publish unreliable content 3) If there were malware on your site 4) You run get rich quick sites.

    If you violate their terms and condition you will not be proficient to obtain a new account below the similar name, and you will not be capable to make lots of traffic to the equal domains through adword once more.

      What does that even mean? You wanna run Adwords campaigns by not paying? No wonder people get suspended. Always trying to game the system.
      How could you possibly run a big campaign with vouchers only?

    Hi All. My adwords account was just banned as well. They were banning it for "adspam techniques". I run the Legitmate Online Job Directory" at

    Legitimate Online Job Directory: Home

    which is basically a database of legit, fee free scam free companies hiring home based workers. I don't have any affiliate links whatsoever on the site and the only ads I run are through adsends. Can anyone give me an idea of what I am doing wrong? I would greatly appreciate any help!

    Go with adcenter instead.

    Why?

    1) They ban much less often.

    2) You're supporting mother Microsoft.

    3) You can get free coupons EVERYWHERE.

    The suggestions of the last few days are totally amazing and completely wrong.

    About opening a new account. That doesn't address or fix the real problem and the new account will suffer the same fate. The OP said it's a landing page issue. Worse, all accounts could be closed and future new accounts not recognized because that's against the TOS. Doesn't matter if you use a virtual credit card.

    About Adcenter. None of the reasons offered in previous post make much sense. The perception may be that they ban less often (they don't actually) but it may be that the poster does follow their rules. Those are pretty much the same as Adwords by the way. I don't see why supporting Microsoft is a plus and as someone said earlier about coupons, you don't run a business by trying to scam/steal money from someone else. Coupons are there to get you to try the service, not try to advertise on it for free ad infinitum. If you try that, you deserve to be banned.

    If the site in your sig file is the site you are sending Adwords traffic to then no wonder you got your accounts closed.

    1. Your site has too many ads to click on
    2. Your popup is broken (can't see all the text nor the text to close the box)
    3. The text is running right up against the banner ad
    4. Duplicate content on your blog. (Your posts should only be a summation to your blog post. If you have the full post and then the full post when someone clicks on the title of the post this is seen as duplicate content)

    Overall your blog is a bad user experience. You need to clean it up, get rid of all the ads and optin boxes, etc on the page you are sending Adwords or any paid traffic to.

    Create a standalone page like suggested earlier...

    What I would suggest is to look at other Adwords ads and go to their destination page. Don't click on the ad, just copy the destination link and see their pages. Get some ideas for a pleasant user experience without showing any ads. Keep all your links on that page internal.

    PS. I found your articles being syndicated by other blogs (good job) but they are not putting a live link at the bottom of your articles. You might want to look into that.
