How Do I Direct Link Without Getting Slapped?

    So i've been doing adwords for about 3 weeks now. I'm currently promoting about 25 different products just by putting a frame page on my own domain and having that direct link to the product's official landing page. Everything was going fine and i was getting around 4-7 quality score on most of my keywords and a few were even getting 8-10 qs.

    Then, literally overnight today the quality score on 95% of my keywords simultaneously dropped to 1-2 (even the ones that were 9-10 just 1 day ago). This caused all my traffic to completely stop. The reason google gave was 'poor keyword relevance'. 'Landing page quality' and 'Load time' were still marked as good. There's no way these keywords are irrelevant.

    So what the hell just happened??

    I chose this method of direct linking because it's commonly used among other affiliates (like 3/8 search results use this exact same method of framing, just check their site's source code).

    So I'm guessing what happened was that google manually reviewed one of my sites, saw that it was against their policies, and then that caused them to manually review the rest of my account and slap everything. I would just try to restart all my campaigns but i'm worried that getting slapped too much might get my account banned eventually.

    It seems like there's still plenty of people doing direct linking with frame pages, so how the hell do they successfully pull it off without getting slapped or banned?

    :confused:

    I think you will always get away with these kind of things for a bit, until google checks your campaigns or you get review. Id be cautious with direct linking from now on...google are on a ban frenzy at the mo.

    They are probably just lucky. I get slapped as well when I link it with dot.tk domains.

    I got slapped the same way on 12/31/2009. I too think someone from google manually came and reviewed my site and did the exact same thing. I had keywords which had the quality score of 10 and then over night I get the same message about "poor keyword relevance". I check my domain stats every day after that and someone from google searches my domain name and a product that I am promoting everysingle day from the December 31 to today. I guess to see if I created another account and are promoting through that account.

    direct linking is not available now

    you need tu get .com domains and put some reviews on it
    research keywords and product lastly setup campaigns

    doesnt use direct linking , it just waste your time :)
