    Two of my adwords account have been suspended because i tried to promote my CPA offer through adwords but I redirected the link i put in adwords to the affilated link. I now want to know if i promote affiliate product straight on google adwords. I don't want to get suspended again. Can anyone please help me with a method or just tell me what to do? Thank you

    adwords does not allow affiliate links. You can try using Facebook because they do

    Try actually making a landing page and link to that.
    If you get some practice you will probably increase your conversions anyway.

    Can we just clarify this ?

    Adwords will not allow you to use an affiliate redirect link but you can link to your own hosted website which then may have affiliate links on it ?

    Correct. However if the website is to obviously an affiliate site the ad itself can be denied, you have to fill the website with good content.

    Adwords does not allow this and you will get the account banned today or tomorrow.

    Janesmith,

    Google has a policy whereby they suspend ads that send users to bridge pages. A bridge page is essentially a doorway page that leads people to another site. In your case, as long as you have some useful content on the page along with your affiliate links you should be ok. As mentioned by a previous poster, you cannot redirect to an affiliate site and your ads will not be approved.

    Keep in mind though that advertising affiliate links is technically against Google's policy so they still could potentially ban you. If you have good content this may be less likely to happen

    Here is Google's policy on bridge pages,

    Hope this helps,

    Shawn

    Yes, Adwords will not allow affiliate links. As suggested, you should make landing page within your domain, and redirect the traffic through it.

    What do you promote? some programs offer pre-made templates for affiliated shops so with that site you will be able to advertise with adwords as those shops don't look like affiliated.
