    Soooooo, if I want to buy like 100 Adword ($100 voucher accounts), does anyone know what triggers the adword system to ban you?

    ........If its done by using the same 16 digit card number, I can go to the grocery store and buy several prepaid visa cards.

    ......If its done by address, I can use fake ones.

    .....If its done by IP, VPN?

    .....If its done by website, bla?????

    Anyone know anything? Thanks

    I'm sure there's not just one trigger. Basics such as using the same name and address are a given and IP would probably be high on the list.

    Best thing to do is use different name/address/ip address combos when creating the account and the same IPs to access them if you want to be real safe.

    Having the same web site in multiple accounts would look a bit suspect as well but not sure when it would trigger a review of your accounts.

    Create 4-5 accounts using different prepaid visa cards, names and addresses and use proxies to set up the accounts. See if accessing them from the same IP causes any issues. If it's cool after a week. Try setting up campaigns for the same web site one account at a time. If you get banned, you'll know what triggered it.

    Don't use your real IP for anything to keep it clean.

    Maybe I'm lucky but I have 4 Adwords accounts, all registered to the same name/address. Serving ads for sites on the same ip/server. All started with coupons.

    Guess Google is not very alert here in the Netherlands, as long as the money keeps coming...
    (Adsense is a different story, wasted 3 accounts allready...)

    this email i get from google

    Thank you for your email expressing concern about running multiple
    accounts with one credit card. Please know that while this is permissible,
    Google does not allow advertisers to advertise the same product with the
    same URL and similar keywords across multiple accounts. Also please know
    that your AdWords account has the potential to advertise for different
    business with the same account. So, I suggest you to advertise with the
    one account instead of opening multiple accounts for the same product.

    so i think you can created many account as long your account not go to same url

    in a galaxy far far away from here
    Home Page:
    I work for a SEM Company and for each new client we open a new account with new email and with a google adwords vouchers (our way of saying, look mr Client, we care so much we give you $100 for free! ;p) Same IP, all adwords vouchers, same billing address, different urls though.
    Although 100 new accounts would be suspicious I guess if none of them actually eventually end up in a paid account.
