Hey guys, In 2011 I got permanently banned from Adwords, apparently for having "bridge pages" as an affiliate marketer. I'm interested to get back on Adwords once again for affiliate marketing purposes. how I got banned in short: In 2009-2010 I had multiple affiliate websites, Somewhere In 2010 most of my campaigns started to get slapped, and I received a warning email from Adwords, saying: "Final Warning: Your Google AdWords account has multiple violations", for having poor quality landing pages. I replied and said that I don't have time to make any immediate changes (as it required some deep thinking), and asked google if pausing all my campaigns would be OK. Google replied I should delete the offending campaigns, which I immediately did. I then took a break from the affiliate marketing business. In 2011 I've logged into my account and saw a message saying it got permanently banned without any notice. I've emailed adwords telling them I had deleted all my campaigns as they had suggested. I got a very laconic reply, saying: "As mentioned in our previous email, your Google AdWords account has been suspended due to multiple violations of our landing page policies. Upon review, we've determined that this account suspension was made in accordance with AdWords policy and procedure. For this reason, we aren't able to revoke your account suspension and won't accept advertisements from you in the future." I've replied them that this is incorrect, as the only thing that came up in my previous correspondence with Adwords was the mutual agreement that I would delete my campaigns, and that should be enough. Google gave me a final reply basically saying there's nothing to do about it. Only today, I have noticed that I did something incorrectly regarding my campaign deletion - The Adwords rep. in 2010 had told me to delete my *Ads* as well, and I forgot about that and only deleted the campaigns (which contained the ads). I guess this could be the reason for banning my account, no matter how stupid this is. So now I want to get back on Adwords again. Obviously, Option A is to email Adwords again, but due the their last uncooperative email response I'm afraid that they had already doomed this account. also, even if they reactivate the account, it would probably be moderated and subject to more scrutiny due to its history. So Option B is to open a New account. I've read here some post where someone suggested another guy who got banned, to simply "buy an account" from a reputable seller. I really don't understand how this works - even if one buys such an account, he would have to change the billing details into his own, and then google could link it to the banned account. linking would probably happen as well if he sets a similar campaign once again. Therefore I'll might as well open an account on my own right? But what are the measurments that I need to take care of in order to avoid detection by Adwords that would link me to my previous account? The first thing would be my entity - in order to assign an entity of a company with its own credit card, I'll need to register a company, pay a yearly toll, and open a seperate bank account; obviouslly this measure is too drastic at least in my current stage where I don't even know what would be my success level with today's Adwords. So If I sign up with my own entity - what would I need to do? Here's my checklist and thoughts, please tell me if anything is missing: 1. Order a new Credit Card from my bank. 2. Should the name on the credit card match my adwords name? I can probably have my credit company issue my a credit card under a name that is slightly different than my name on adwords' records - should I take such measure? 3. Should the address associated with the credit card (I don't know if google have access to it when they charge me) match my adwords address? I can probably change the address of my CC to a new one (new street name, street number, zipcode), and fill it as my address on Adwords as well. 4. Fill another phone number. 5. Domain name - I would register a new domain, under a new name, and mask it with some domain masking service. 6. Hosting - I would host my website on another webhost than the previous; should it be a dedicated IP? 7. Computer - I have a new PC which was never used to log into any adwords account (but it was used to log into a gmail account, that received all the above correspondence with Adwords, since the previous Adwords account was set to forward all emails to this account) 8. My IP - my IP is probably a bit different than what it was 2 years ago, should I ask my ISP to change it? I would appreciate any help and comments, thanks!
