    Signed up for adwords. Paid $50 into account. Entered my free voucher. Created a weight loss niche site. Created 2 ads. Account suddenly under review. Told to check back in 3 days. Wake up next morning. 3 emails were sent at 2 AM. First says potential problem. Second says Problem. Third says suspension.

    Are you kidding me? I didn't even run a single advertisement.

    Fucking nazis.

    I'm assuming that was a post-count reply, but they are seriously retarded. I mean, at least just disapprove ads or something before you go and suspend them and ban people from future advertising. I'd never used the F'n platform before and their TOS is extremely long-winded and somewhat vague in areas.

    Never you mind.
    Why am I not surprised. One should never rely on G for their income. Many of our members do it well but its something I dont want to have to deal with.

    I'd never fully rely on them. I made $500k off email marketing a decade ago when Google was nothing. But their monopoly has gotten ridiculous and the idea of being permanently banned on one of their platforms doesn't sit well with me for future endeavors.

    Yeah, because it was a spammy site, apparently. I mean, if you don't want to allow promotion of the site on adwords, fine by me. But I've never submitted a site before so I have no idea what the exact requirements are as their instructions are vague. Just don't approve the ad, tell me what to do, and everyone's happy. They're fucking drunk with power.

    Its because they don't allow adwords on affiliate sites. If you are directing the traffic to a clickbank focussed site then they will review and disabled the ads and give you warning. I got a warning and had to disable but my account is still safe as I didn't do anything wrong outright. They just allow you to send traffic to sites which have services or products to offer not affiliate thing..

    If you call them on the phone they will tell you exactly what the issue is. They actually have decent support even if you do not spend enough to have an account rep.
