    Hey there, adwords noob here. Was recently running ads for a new product of debatable ethical status ... and got this warning from the Goog machine. Their warning is super unclear - if I just delete the ads am I good to go? I ran these ads on my personal account but I have a separate legit business account that I don't want to get in trouble.

    They don't give warnings. Either your ads are disapproved, domain is banned, or you're banned for life. Most likely you're banned for life. If not then you'd have to remove those debatable ethical status products from your website plus the ads. Not only that but you also have to have other products that are clean on the website.

    Hmm weird. Maybe this one slipped under the radar because I got a scolding email but my ads were approved and still running. Anyway I deleted them and haven't heard anything more.

    it's just the standard email they send about products that enable dishonest behavior. anyway no further action yet.

    think i can run google analytics on that property or will i get into trouble for that too?
