    I started using Bing some days ago thinking it was a good source for buying cheap clicks. I started one campaign for my website, and I was getting clicks for pennies. So far, so good.

    Now, yesterday I thought of promoting ClickBank products using my account which had my legit debit card associated with it. I copied keywords from the affiliate page of the owner and got my link. I decided that I would direct link for some time to see whether the offer converts or not.

    I went to sleep since I had not slept that day. When I woke up, the access to my account was revoked. I contacted their service through the online chat option, and the response was very quick. He asked me all my details: name, card details, address, phone number. He then called me to confirm those details twice. And then, he told me to wait for 1 to 2 days.


    Today, I got this email:

    Well it depends what kind of product you were promoting. Unlike Google, Bing does not tell you that they're not allowed, they simply ban you and that's it. You're done.

    Did you try the diet niche for example? That was a niche that I did amazing in back in August 2015 but a little afterwards during the year they instabanned any accounts that attempted to do so.

    Also, are you cloaking? Did you start cloaking immediately after approval?

    All these questions matter in the end since aging accounts is important. Some clickbank products are also risky to promote without cloaking.

    Yep, It was the diet niche. That got my account banned? So, can I create a new account? Or not?

    No, I wasn't cloaking.

    Could you please tell me what niches they do allow and is there a list of best practices?

    Since they asked you for all that data before this, it seems like it's not about cloaking or any technical issue, it seems like they don't believe your payment method is yours, or that you aren't who you claim to be.... That's what I get from this email, though admitedly that email doesn't say jack shit.

    OP, from just skimming through your post I see you mentioned "copied the keywords from the affiliate page." That could have triggered a review since Bing can detect ad copy and keyword formatting. So if other affiliates were banned who used those same keywords and formatting, then you're gonna draw attention to yourself if doing the same. This goes for ad copy too.

    perhaps the lander of the product was too aggressive and since you direct linked = ban.
    Any image of a fat belly or fat person semi-nude (yes bikini counts too) is considered aggressive marketing in the eyes of Bing.
