    I woke up this morning and got a complete shock of my life when I looked at my Google campaign. Almost 90% of my keywords are disabled because of low quality score. They freaking slapped my campaign because of my landing page. I'm in a daze now.

    Anyone who has been through this, please help. How do I fix this?????

    Copy your current ad groups into brand new campaign then delete old campaign, then build it again. It sucks to start over but at least it is not totally from scratch, just try to avoid getting slapped again: no direct linking, make sure keywords are relevant.

    The problem is I got the BIG slap which means Google doesn't like my landing page. My keywords have been receiving great quality score before the slap.

    Its also very often that they are kicking somebody cause they need this keywords for a big campaign they sold to a company.They are rising prices so you would leave for your own or kicking you because of violation etc.

    like everyone says, start a new campaign, but before you do build your site around that offer. Don't just have a landing page, have relevant keywords with good content. Throw up a quick wordpress site, with useful content loaded with keywords.

    Funny things is that I'm in the middle of something like this. I have heard that if you can:
    -redo the landing page.
    -If that doesn't work, then buy a new domain and setup your new landing page on that.

    Yes. This happened to me. I bought a new domain name. Moved the landing page to that domain name and created a new Adwords account and new campaign with same keywords. Bingo. Back in business. Its worked fine for the last month.
