    Hey fellow BHW people!. just want to want to ask you some question regarding adwords. I must confirm this before anything as I am aware that adwords account suspension is popping all over the place.

    The question:
    I am tired of promoting CPA offers via free method and I want to take this to the next level by doing PPC because in my past niche. I am having a little success by using it.

    Last june 2009 when I use PPC. My landing page is a simple lead capture page with good headline and a video and when the lead type his/her name he/she will be redirected to the actual sales page of what I am promoting.

    But right now. After hearing many people who got banned into adwords I am afraid of using it until I clear some issues.

    Will g00gle ban me when I link directly to the CPA offers and masked the website with my co.cc url?

    other options I am thinking of is creating a custom splash page and upload it on my white hat website and masked it in co.cc domain.

    The CPA niche that I am interested to tackle is health and credit reports.

    Thanks

    You shouldn't get banned but if you have a poorly keyword optimized landing page you will get hit with additional fees to run your ads at least. The more keyword relevant your drop site is the less google will tax you.

    Thanks for the reply. But If offpage SEO is the case it will not be a problem to me..

    What If I directly link the landing page to the actual CPA offers but masked it with a co.cc domain?

    I am banned in Facebook PPC ads when I try to run acai berry ads directly linking to the landing page and masked it via co.cc domain.

    Thank GOd I use my 2nd account not the real one. :p

    Well, if facebook banned your method i would presume it to be highly likely that google would as well. I would just experiment with multiple accounts until you can find out what works for you.. Only thing you can really try if you are going blackhat about things.

    My plan is not that BH though. Right! If FB banned me then I also assume that BIG G will too. Thats why I really need to confirm this before doing anything..

    But If I go with my plan b (create splash page and then put a link to the actual CPA offers) do you think google will still ban me?

    I thought they hate CPA's?

    Im pretty sure you cant do this, i played around with adwords for a bit, go a free or cheap .co.cc or .info domain and used a meta redirect direct to the cpa landing page.. however my campaign would never go live with adwords, i kept getting the error saying "sorry, you must use a url that is part of the domain blarblar.com (where blarblar was the actually cpa's offers website) I spoke to support and the woman said that I wasnt allowed to do this.

    So then I tried using an iframe and again, same result wouldnt let me put the campaign live :\

    Give it a go, but im pretty sure you will get the same result as me.

    hmm. pretty decent experience with adwords. Thanks issue number one is cleared!

    What If I create splash page that is highly optimized and put a link to the actual CPA offer? will big g allow me or not?

    Yep, that will be fine, infact the woman at adwords said to me that they are quite happy for people to advertise affiliate offers using adwords, however you need to create a landing page that then links to the offer (like you've just suggested)

    I guess what they dont like is an auto redirect to the offer, like dynander said, they dont mind CPA, they just dont like lazy marketers :)
