    Speechless. The canned answer they gave as to why the account was suspended just made me even crazier. Anyway...yeah, Google.

    I/We have other accounts - they canned the only one that really, really mattered to my organization as a whole. Many clients were managed through this account, and many of the campaigns were live for so long that next to nothing was being paid for what costs new entries $5, $10, $15/click.

    They've sent warnings a few times over the years about certain landing pages and even on rare occasions entire domains they has inexplicable problems with. They were removed, everyone moved on. I just never, ever saw this coming and I usually do with stuff like this and preempt it (I know what Google/AdWords doesn't want or allow).

    I spent pretty much the whole morning trying to figure out what on earth they might be referring to, and I don't see anything at all problematic. The problem is that they sent this absolute message, applying to the entire account, not just a single campaign, ad group, or ad, etc. etc.

    No warning, no specificity - nothing.


    lol I have to be honest, I feel a really strange sense of relief and I'm going to have to figure out if I even want to fuck with it. AdWords is the very last Google product we have left to detach ourselves from. However, if I don't get the account back, 5 staff have to go... tired of Google putting me in these positions.

    use the time to take a break and refresh your mind with new ideas. At least it was a good run and you earned great money out of it so see it from that bright side :)

    Come back into the game stronger than ever whenever you're ready!

    Write to the support! I'm sure they will help you.

    I'm in the same position (with a much smaller amount of money), but the support tells me what I've to do to get my account back(!).
    My problems was a landingpage with some mistakes (I'd call it very small mistakes...). I'm able to remove these mistakes and let it check again from google. It is not significant if I want to use the landing page for the future. I could also tell Google not to use this site again... If I don't remove these mistakes, they don't reopen my account.

    Adwords is paid advertising man. It does not mean adsense.
