    Hey guys,

    Just found an unbelievable niche, dirt-cheap CPC, and built a site for it. Will be doing Organic SEO, but whacked a shitload of cash on my Adwords account and can't get my Ads approved!

    It's in the bodybuilding sector, how do I get them approved? Maybe a disclaimer will get it over the line?

    Cheers,
    JC

    Can you provide more detail. PM the ad information..

    Review the adwords policy. Do ads from other campaigns show up?

    This is the only campaign I've got going right now - thats why I'm so cut, I loaded up the cash but can't use it!

    It's basically a squeeze page between the Ad and the CB product I'm promoting, with some info doing a pre-sell.

    Is this a brand new adwords account?

    What is the status message for the keywords? Are the ads approved?

    Google no longer approves campaigns for affiliate sales pages. You will likely get a warning then a permanent ban of your Adword account so best to delete the Ad and try to refund your money!

    If its an existing adwords account with history then he would be able to create a campaign for his affiliate pages. They don't review the site right away.

    You're allowed to send traffic to affiliate sites as long as the site adds value.

    Well given his campaign has NOT been approved the above would not apply! Otherwise as you said his campaign would auto approve and be running already....

    The add showed up as "eligible" to begin with, then about 5 minutes later marked as declined. They must have a script to review the site. The issue they put was that it was to do with the site, not the ad, but didn't specify what rule I was violating.

    It was an aged Adwords account too, I've had it for years and done numerous other campaigns on it, never had any problems (never promoted affiliate stuff like this though)
