Hello everybody,

As I`ve recently opened a website, I started using Adwords free coupon to advertise it. It worked well for a while, but I`ve recently experienced the following problem: after receiving a new free coupon, I 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 open a new e-mail account and also 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?!

    Are you serious? You can't just open new accounts to take advantage of free credits, its against their rules.

      Hi alerossi82,

      It sounds like you have been banned from the AdWords, program. They do not ban accounts, websites, IP Addresses, or computers, they ban people. You must be a different person, without any ties or connections to you, to open a new account.

      It doesn't matter why you were banned, you must find out why, and successfully remedy the cause, then ask for reconsideration, if it was something that was no fault of your own then you may get reinstated.

      It sounds like you may have opened a new account without closing the previous account, which is a direct violation of AdWords policy. That, alone is all it takes to get banned from AdWords.

        Thank you for your answer, I've already sent an email to Google asking the reason why I was banned.
        It could be that I opened many accounts without closing the existing ones, but I didn't know it represents a violation of their policy.
        Anyway, I don't understand how they are able to block my new accounts, as I tried to create new profiles, using new e-mail addresses and, of course, changing all personal data - the only thing I didn't change was the landing page, that is always the home page of my website.

        Do you have any idea about what I can do to bypass this problem?

          I have used several 100 s of adwords accounts in the past. Yes, for free credits. They can't ban the people, how they know one person is making different accounts? They are using some filters and if one account is banned we cannot use the same name, email, address, website and payments details in another account because they are banned.

          The reason for your accounts are being blocked is you are using the same landing page. If it is banned in the past it now hold a quality score of 1 only and if you create accounts with that url they only have quality score of 1 or 0 and your accounts will be banned instantly. Previously I used to use new .info domains for evry new accounts to get rid of that issue. You can't do a redirect, you should upload the files from your site into the new .info directory. It was working in the past but in the last year they introduced a new filter which will catch the new domains too if the content is the same. I haven't used adwords ever since that and planning to try again soon...

    You are not allowed to open multiple accounts and take advantage of multiple coupons, in the eyes of Google you are dishonest and they banned you for your underhanded practices. You can pretty much give up on the idea of ever using adwords again, no worries plenty of other advertising avenues available to you if you play fair.

        Ok, I`m afraid there are some people misunderstanding my previous post; as I said, I`ve already contacted Google asking the reason why I was banned and how I can fix the situation - I didn`t know using different accounts was against their rules!

        The problem is that I have been waiting already for one week, but they don`t asnwer; therefore, as I received a free copuon that is expiring in 10 days, I`d like to find the way to use it - that`s all.

        Anyway, thank you all for your support

        bbradford71, you mentioned "other advertising avenues available"; can you be more specific?

    well guyz, the problem is that now Google asks for your phone nr. to open a new account, so even if I change the landing page, I can do it only once (per phone nr)...

      In adwords or gmail? They were asking phone no for gmail since long time. We could open yahoo mail accounts instead. If they are asking for phone no in adwords it is a new news...

        alerossi82, are you kidding?

        You got the real answer. You can't keep opening
        adwords accounts. You still are adamant, even though
        you now KNOW the rule!

        There is no problem, nor should anyone claim they
        faced the same problem.

        It's against their TOS. Period. End of story.

        It's people like you who make google get tough
        with everybody. But we fight a never ending
        battle.

    I can tell you how to get around the phone number issue, but I won't, simply because your running a scam on Adwords coupons. :rolleyes:

      I am ecstatic about the honesty and fairness of some members of this forum...I'll tell you something, you know I started to be an Adwords customer paying for the service? But I realized quite soon it was more the money I was investing in advertising than the money I was earning from that...in fact, I started an internet business as a second job and I work until late every night

      It is easy to teach morality lessons on a web forum, but when those money helps you to pay your mortgage and feed your children, well I'm not ashamed anymore to use some free advertising...

      lucky you that you don't have such problems

        Sounds like your not tracking the ROI on previous PPC campaigns.

      Yeah, I almost bit and spilled on how to keep going and going and going

    Google is very smart. It knows the technique of catching smart guys who are breaking their rules, because Google is smarter than others.
