    I've tried many things. I can't succeed. I'm constantly getting the slap. I've built full sites, with a site-map and disclaimer, contact us.. etc. And I still get slapped. I cloak my affiliate links. I never use the same cloaked link more than 3 times on my whole site. I outsource article writing so i can have unique content. I track with prosper202. I get decent CTRs and i have relevent ad copy and related keywords.

    Also, I was running a teeth whitening campaign, i cannot find any affiliates running campaigns on adwords. ( i searched tons and tons of keywords, i even have PPC bully and i rarely see affiliates. Is everyone doing these teeth whitening products and other re-bills and sorts doing media buys?

    So is it just getting damn near impossible to for affiliates to survive on adwords?


    Anybody have any idea what i am doing wrong? Or any good resources on fighting the google slap these days?

    If i'm not mistaken, cloaking your site comes in hand when it comes to SEO. I'm referring to cloaking my affiliate links. So that the Google bot doesn't see my landing page as a affiliate landing page.

    google frowns upon rebills...coz its bad "user experience"

    thats prolly why you are getting slapped...and thats definitely why no one is advertising on adwords...

    I can understand G cracking down on scammy affiliate offers that do not make it clear you will be re-billed $79.95 often before the trial period has expired, and then make it extremely hard to cancel.
