I had been using Google to promote my offline business in the past and recently i had went into niche marketing as well as setup a blog.

Yesterday i made a $200 payment to them, and today i woke up to find my account had been suspended.

The dreaded google letter had been sent.

The worst thing is that they had suspended my account for the reason that the blog i wasnt even advertising ( i had setup ads for the niche site, not the blog) was the reason for the suspension.

Google said my blog was suspended for ARBITRAGE??!!!!

This crazy giant really is a nightmare, i never want to do business with them ever again nor can i be bothered to appeal against the suspension!

Thank god i never went into ADSENSE and relied on them for income!

    I'm not sure if you are doing right or wrong. At least if you believe nothing wrong, then the report and ask for the review may be a good idea (if that's possible).
    Or simply burn Relax your $ 200.

    Sometimes Google makes things and they don't give any explanation at all, try sending an email to them and explain you had a white hat site and what you are doing is legit.

    This has happened to me as well. The worse part is if you try to open a second account most likely it will get suspended because they key your computer ip on account. Best you can do is start email them for an analysis of your suspension.

    I did this, although it took them a month, i got an analysis of why it was suspended. After speaking with google on the phone I had my account hooked back up but i have to be super careful of what i put on my ads.

    Hope that helps

    Hey Desmond! sorry to hear that happened. To be honest from the years I have been doing this, there is no wrong or right but one thing is for sure anything that has to do with Google or depends on Google should not be considered a REAL BUSINESS.

    From one day to the other they can take everything away and sometimes won't even tell you why. Very sad but as you now know it is the sad truth.

    "Thank god i never went into ADSENSE and relied on them for income!"

    Right on good move man!

      Thanks guys, for replying!

      I wont lose any money in this case because adwords allows cancelled accounts to be refunded, but I guess there are plenty of traffic sources out there and i wont be missing Google

    Whether you did something wrong or not, you can't do anything about it anymore. This is the reason why I filed divorce with Google years ago and have a much happier life...

    They ban my account and I haven't used it for 2 years.

    They care little for the small time peeps, it's mostly just big business now.

    Imo, relying on google or other se's for your business is foolish to say the least (no offense), totally unreliable, no foundation for a business.

    google has recently been very unreliable and giving bans,slaps,punches,etc...
    The best thing in my opinion is to stop relying on google for anything at all. It's just not worth the heart-attacks everytime they pull one of these weird bans.
