    Hi All,

    Received an email on the 20th July advising me that my adword account was suspended "Site Violation - Arbitrage"

    Site is 32 days old and when I setup this site I got a £55 adword voucher which ran out on the 11th July.

    I have 4 sites that follow (or what I thought followed) a similar format. 3+ pages (not including privacy & contact us) 500+ word article on landing page and 400+ words on other pages follows with a news/latest info section where I post new articles. Ads where at the top of the articles using a WP plug called "whydoanywork adsense"

    So I am a little confused as this "site violation" email as struggling to see what has cause this.

    I have removed all ads from this site now and changed the theme and checked the my articles.

    I am a little worried about putting ads back on as I am unsure what has lead to this account suspension.

    I am also now worried that this will have an effect on my adsense account as its not clear what I have done. I don't need to have an adword account. I only used it as I had a free voucher.

    Any help and advice would be great



    EDIT: something that has just occurred to me. Would using an adword voucher to give my side some traffic and also running google Ads on my site be a problem?

    The only problem is if the big G considered that your page or site is only focused on driving visitors to adsense.

    Just remove the adsense from the top of your content and after you stop to using de voucher, you put it back.

    They are really strict with the type of content also? Is your content feeds or auto? I have read the terms and conditions and there are allot of things they consider violations. Like adult, gambling or sex toys. You should change up your content and make sure you avoid "Click Jacking" at all costs :D

    Just make sure that you remove adsense. Then contact them again and tell them since you we're not aware of the policy you did not consider removing it earlier! Usually, if you accept mistakes they grant you the account back.
