AdWords Account closed. 2nd one?

Google closed my AdWords account about a month ago for "major or repeated violations" but I haven't used my account in at least four years. They also said I received a warning but I never did. I tried emailing but kept receiving a canned reply.

Well, now I want to run an ad so...

How can I open another account without risking my AdSense and analytics accounts?

    And, you have no idea why the account was closed? Maybe the email was sent to another email address you no longer have access to or ended up in your spam folder.

      No clue and it only has one email associated w/ it. When I asked support, they replied w/ the generic "we told you why" email.

      I've listed maybe 5 different products/campaigns in a decade. Never liked using PPC.

      Thankfully Adwords isn't nearly as strict as Adsense. I've had an old account banned in Adwords, used a different email to setup new account and everything worked out.

      It appears that Google is far more lenient to those who pay them rather than to those they pay out to :rolleyes:

      Yes! A company worth 268 Billion (probably more now) can be fooled with a proxy! FACEPALM

      I think your best bet to getting another adsense account, is to create a business entity and get a business adsense account.

        Great idea. He can open a Business Adsense Account in order to get his Adwords account back

        I didn't use a proxy, just rather another email address, and they accepted me into Adwords (we're not talking about adsense).

        If this was about Adsense I would tell the dude to open a funeral up for his old account since, unless he opens a new business up, he's not seeing another chance.

        Adwords is a far different game though. I am 100% sure that they know i had an account before but they don't care since they're getting my money (i use a lot of youtube ads).

    If you thinking to get second account for adwords make sure you use different name with different payment option. Or else this account will be closed too. Once the Adsense/Adwords account is terminated its very difficult to get them back.

    Save your money. Don't pay it to a company full of a-holes who don't care about their customers.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I emailed them again and this time got a "we will review it" email. If they don't re-open it, I guess I'll have a family member open one.

    Thanks again.

      You don't have to get the family member. Just create a new email (I like hotmail for this) and they should accept your details since your new email login is your login for ALL google services within one account.

      I just say before you ask your family for a favor try it out for yourself. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

        Same here: used AdWords account only once in whole 2013, for 2-3 days.

        Than my credit card was stolen, but I didn't bother changing card because my account had positive balance. Eventually bank declared the card invalid, and G. just shut my account for "repeated violations".

        How can one make "repeated violations" if he is not using the account?

          I'm sure they have fraud protection built in just like Paypal does. Paypal is a mutha to get back up & running once something happens, even something as simple as an account that hasn't been used in a long time (red flag).
