    Yes, you can have multiple accounts with adwords and never get in trouble. They have restrictions on multiple accounts but if you're not doing anything wrong then they have no reason to look into it nor care.

    When signing up the second account, use a different credit card, same name, and change the name of your street since its not necessary for credit card approval. There are a few other posts around that talk about how to do this, its quite easy, and you're completely safe without doing the voucher exploit.

    Best of luck to you,
    Seariz

    I don't understand why you are trying to open another account to promote another website. You can promote as many websites as you want with just one account. Just start a new campaign.

    And no, having one unsuccessful campaign wont hurt your account. If everybody would have to open another account for each campaign, super affiliates would have hundreds of g accounts. I don't know where you heard that from but it's not true. Just start a new campaign.

    They don't allow multiple accounts for the same person/business so you would have the chance of getting banned on one ore more of the accounts. If its your main source of income I don't think I would want to take the chance.

    If you try to create a second account using the same info as the primary account Google will deny the account and send you an email telling you multiple accounts are not allowed.

    More more info you can read this..
    Code:
    http://adwords.google.com/support/aw/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=8759
    You'll see they have an option for muliple accounts if your a SEM, etc. but all accounts would have to be linked to one main account.

    That's true but if ONLY you promote the same products, with same/similar keywords and/or websites through multiple accounts. As long as you promote different offers, you will be fine. I have two accounts and using them without a problem.

    One of the reason to have separate accounts is so you don't harm successful campaigns by having a poor one. QS affects all campaigns in an account. Have 1 for starting a campaign, testing, 1 for an optimised account, 1 for ones that are making you a profit that you don't want fucked.

    Google TOS state no single adwords account is allowed any more than 50,000 keywords. If you intend to use more than that please open another account (Requested by Google Staff)

    Point Blank the answer to your question is yes. Why you are doing it is none of my business. I have enough to deal with as is but I can give you this helpful tip.

    sign up with a different email address than a previously created adwords account after going to:

    Code:
    http://www.google.com/adwords/myclientcenter/
    Once you have activated your myclientcenter account you will need to log into each adwords account and grab the customer ID: This is located on the top right part of the screen. Copy and paste each into notepad.

    Log out of the accounts and back into your myclientcenter account and about a third of the way down the page(above the fold) you will find a link that says Link an existing account.

    Click on that and add in the ID one at a time from each account. After it has been added you can add the other.

    Next log back out of the MCC account and into each one of the adwords accounts and confirm that you want your MCC account to have access to each account. Once this is done on each account you will receive notification in your MCC account that each "person" has allowed access to their adwords account. Now you can login to one place and manage each account independently.

    Have fun and enjoy.

    Techincally, you can even run 2 accounts using the same keywords if your products have a unique enough difference. Significant price difference, for example. Or, using google help's example, if one page sold stereos and another, computers, you could run the kw "electronics" on both. More realistically, let's say one of your sites sold potatoes and the other, cabbage. You could run both accounts on the term "vegetables". How cool is that?!

    I've got multiple accounts and checked with G first to make sure.

    The key thing is making absolutely certain that no ad from account A is showing at the same time as an ad from account B. Geographical segmentation is a great way to assure this.

    Lol, I have like 5 AdWords accounts with the same name, address and credit card number. I have a feeling they will all get banned soon but, it hasn't happened yet.

    Well I thought you can buy *** from some people( google it) who sell for $2-5 and can use the vouchers for multiple accounts. I sometime use *** for CPA offers with proxies. Well use PHPFIEND's post as well. In that way you can profit more by merging 2 accounts.
