    basically i was getting a domain-level slap (all keywords to 1 qs). so i just moved everything to a new domain and made a new identical campaign, which lasted for about a week before getting slapped again. after doing this 3 times, i got the above email.

    this campaign was averaging $300-$400 per day, brought in a total of around $20,000 since i started it in january.

    oh well, movin' on...

    If you are making profits try to promote with other PPC programs or some media buying ;)

    Yes if the campaign is making you money, why not try media buys & other PPC like MSN & yahoo.

    if I were in your shoes I would go find another way to outsmart google like hiring different people to be in charge in your ads. or simply buy more adwords accounts.

    That sucks, but what this guy shared is interesting nonetheless.

    This method of bypassing google slaps is generally well known. You go from a 8-9 and suddenly to 1 and so you just pack your campaign and move it over to another domain and a new campaign setup and all is well until the next time it happens.

    What this letter tells us is that the Gslap isn't just about QS, they are using it as a way to enforce their TOS! Am I the only one that finds it odd that instead of communicating with him from the start about a TOS violation they instead used the QS system to just milk his clicks for more cash? Do you know of any other company that does that? It's like catching a store selling cigarettes to kids, and instead of saying 'don't do that' you make the cost of their cigarettes 300% more to put them out of business.

    At least you got the 'final' warning, but only after it cost you and profited for them. I would recommend like others mentioned. Duplicate your campaign with Y! BING and perhaps other media buys that fit your demo.. you might not see $300 days, but at least you will see something.

    Good luck

    get someone else to make you an account a friend i would suggest (different CPU)

    get a new domain (again)

    handle your account through teamviewer.

    Repeat if you're slapped again. ;)

    You could try PPV for the Google Campaign you're currently running.

    Sounds familiar. I just spent five days waiting to get a campaign approved, only to find out it wasn't acceptable. In my case, it was involving gambling. I guess sometimes it does pay to read the rules ahead of time. F*ckers.
