    Hello, I have this small service based on script I have written. I will not be more specific to not look like im trying to promote it here. I dont want to sell in the marketplace now here at BHW, maybe in future. I tried to sell it at Fiverr, had few orders and I have driven traffic to it from adwords campaigns. Problem is, it is somewhere in the gray zone, I would not say its really blackhat, but google apparently thinks otherwise and banned my campaigns.
    Ill try to rank my site where I offer the service, but since I suck at SEO, I dont know if Ill be able to.
    So I would like to ask you guys who offer services here at BHW, where are other places to promote your services, preferably for free? Thanks for any ideas.

    I'd suggest you look at how / why " Google banned my campaigns " as no matter where you sell this, unless you have a water tight disclaimer in place you'll ed up with unhappy customers ( possibly ).

    Have you tried on Bing or FB ? as an example and what was the result.

    If it is grey/blackhat then this is the ideal site to offer it for sale. Why don't you want to start a sales thread?

    Well if you've been banned using it yourself then maybe give up on it

    Customers I had were happy with it, google adwords staff were not. They reason for suspending my campaign is: "Products or services that enable dishonest behavior." I was not banned using it, because its not against TOS of the service it works with. Reason why I dont make sales thread now is that I dont want to risk $130 since I have no idea how many people would actually need such service, but I might give it a try in the future.
