    First of all want to say a big thank you to everyone sharing knowledge to help each other out. This forum's been my main sources of reading material for the last 2 weeks after I decided to try to automate some income. I want to eventually be good enough to actually have pointers to give.

    I figure it would take a while to make my 1st sale but it came quite fast this past Sunday, a mere $7, I looked at the data, did more reading and realized something, need to catch people towards the end of the path to purchase, made some changes to my strategy, lander, ads, keywords, etc, next day made $40 + $90 upsale within 15 min of my starting bid time, hit a CTR of 3% with a decent amount of impressions, my landing page email opt in rate was 38% / click, was amazed, I was finally getting somewhere. Shortly after all my ads were disapproved lol...with the reason being that my domain was banned. Account is still good though. Now that I've seen the possibilities, I can't go back, gotta come out and win this.

    Wondering what would be the best next step?

    I'm trying to run another campaign on Bing tmr, hopefully it goes well, but honestly I want to get back into google eventually. Should I use something like Tunnel Bear VPS + VCC to get a new account to be safe? Any recommended sources / products would be a life saver.

    This whole experience just left a bad taste in my mouth but I know it's only temporary, at least I learned a ton and still have some useful data.

    Appreciate any suggestions.

    Cheers.

    Damn, bro. Good job for a newbie.

    Were you linking to CPA or CB offers, or were you making your own landing pages to affiliate offers?

    hmm not sure what you mean by CPA or CB offers, I was promoting a diet product from Clickbank, which is considered CPA right, where you get paid per action/purchase.

    I made my own landing page with a custom sales pitch, I actually did try to direct link (through a redirect on my lander site) without cloaking for 1 day to see what happens, the ad score dropped dramatically, so made the lander, prob would've been disapproved eventually if i didn't have the lander.

    What I'm really wondering about is this early in my account, with just this domain banned, is it going to flag on my account or is it safe to proceed to use and just switch the domain and hosting.

    The key not to banned from ad words is: don't make a bridge page

    make your site like authority, legit site, a blog site, a good theme, and many content first

    and dont throw away your visitor to other website.
