    Ok so the story begins. I began using Google Adwords 4 years ago on a fully paid account. I put £6000 into the account over a 3 month period before getting randomly banned for no given reason. The ads were linked to my business. Anyway my business crashed without Adwords and yeah as you can imagine i was effed lol.

    Anyway since then i have opened new adwords accounts once every 2 months with false direct debit information, name address etc and run up debts per account of over £20,000.

    Their own fault? i think so.

    My latest account opened around 5 days ago and was running really well until today when the balance hit £350 for a days advertising i was hit with a "your ads are not running, please contact us for suport" message. I sent an email as always and the account isnt under review as normally an automatic reply is sent if it is. I am trying to work out whether or not the account has been set a "hidden" daily spend limit and when it hits it i get given that message. It happened yesterday too and after midnight all went up and runnin again.

    It seems a little too soon for the ads to go offline as my other accounts last over 2 months.

    Also i have found that i have to use a different physical PC everytime i want to create a new account. No idea how google links them but when i use the same PC the accounts get banned automatically within minutes. I found that changing the IP isnt enough.

    Anyone got experience with this method of advertising and wanna give me some help on the current account?

    Create a virtual disk within your PC use it to work with your Adwords account. You probably have a flash cookie stored on your PC.

    There is some debate as to whether a MAC address can be read by the likes of Google, I believe it can be, especially if you have some of their products installed on your PC such as Google earth, Google gears. So better be safe and change/spoof the MAC address as well

    Make a new virtual machine (I use VMware) every time you open an account and only use that virtual machine for that particular account.

    And to make sure they dont cotton on use different operating systems. I am using windows xp virtual machine at the moment and it is working a treat.

    use VMWare to make a virtual machine and use only one instance per account.

    Im at the top of Google for some of the most competitive key searches.

    They accept Direct Debit as a form of Payment in the UK. Which means you often get way over 10 days of ads before the payment is declined. THen after it being declined they "re-attempt" it so giving you another 10 days. Then if you play it right you can repeat the process for months before they catch on to you.

    I make around £10k a month profit from my sites.

    You have to always be one step ahead of the billing system to get the optimum live time.

    Google has banned hundreds of legitimate adword account for no reason in the past. I know so many such people who were doing nothing against adword TOS and yet there account was banned. These were people who suffered losses in their business because of it.

    It feels good to know that Google is also on the receiving side in some cases like yours, with $20,000 loss and counting;)

    I might sound mean here but I hear the same kind of story all the time. I'm a professional that has managed over 100 client accounts so I know what I'm talking about. I wish to help others, although I can't really help you as you've seem to have dug yourself a hole. But others can learn from your mistakes.

    You said:
    >> getting randomly banned for no given reason.

    First, Google doesn't randomly ban accounts and certainly for no given reason. They have reasons. The reason is always the advertiser not following their rules.

    So the solution before starting a campaign is ensuring that you follow all the rules. They expect you to read and know them. Otherwise, you run the risk of being banned if you insist on following your current course of action.

    I have no more empathy for those saying "I got banned for no reason". The reasons are all there. It was just a matter of reading.


    >> i have opened new adwords accounts once every 2 months with false direct debit information

    You admit in providing false information and you are surprised that Google doesn't want to do business with you? And then you blame them?

    There is no "hidden" anything. As long as advertisers follow the rules, you have complete control over your spending and everything else in your account. So don't try to look for such things.

    >> seems a little too soon for the ads to go offline

    A little too soon? Look, the software is always being tweaked. They want to catch bad apples as soon as possible. I don't know how you've got this far in but it is unlikely you will ever advertise on Adwords ever again. They've finally caught up with you. Take your punishment.

    Too bad your site is doing well and you're making £10k a month. With no advertising on Google, that will surely go down to a very small fraction of that. A shame you decided to go rogue. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to work and help a client make another $1,000 today.

    20k - that's a lot of adwords credit.

    any other country allow direct debit for adwords?

    You have been drinking their Kool-Aid! I have also run ads that were banned for no explained reason and I did do thorough research on the ToS and other obscure rules. None were in violation. They have recently decided to try and stop this practice. Turns out the guys in India were not doing their jobs right and they had a quota of ads to review. Ban was easier to do since it required NO justification to their bosses. And before you flame me this came straight from the regional manager of Google. I am now back to advertising with them again. So the take away is make a friend at google to help you.
