    I have been suspended from Google Adwords, for no apparent reason.

    I was totally white hat, and I was suspended too. Yay me.

    Anyway, is it possible to create a new Adwords Account with...

    1. New Credit Card information.
    2. New IP.
    3. New name.

    Actions I have taken:

    1. Removed removable information from my suspended account.
    2. Cancelled my suspended account.

    Help?

    Firstly, you were most likely banned for a reason. I went through the Adwords T&C a couple of weeks back (yeah, I was pretty bored :p) and noticed some 2 or 3 points I was strongly in breach of, despite thinking that all my activities were white hat.

    As for getting back, yes - a new name / new CC / new IP will work. But the main thing to bear in mind is NOT to use the same keyword collection that you used on your old account. In the beginning I would suggest you to stay away from most of the keywords you have used before - later on, however, you can mix in a couple (the top performers) but DO NOT be stupid enough to export/import your whole list as I've heard loads of people getting their new accounts (which has no obvious links to the old ones) banned because of this very thing.

    Let me guess - you used a landing page (bridge page) that was a 1-page site with your affiliate links on it? If so, then that's the very reason you got banned in the first place and the quickest and easiest way to get all your new accounts banned as well.

    Google does not allow bridge pages. There's plenty of information regarding that in this forum so the search box is your friend.

    Now - if you were actually promoting your own product/service or your landing page was something that's not against Adwords TOS, then please accept my apologizes :) However - even in this case I don't suggest you to use the exact same URL with your new account. You can do it and I doubt they will link your new account to your old one based solely on this (after all, the site can belong to someone who simply buys in Adwords advertising), but the least ways for Google to connect your old and your new account you provide the better your chances of not getting caught.

    Nope, it was a... 20-page website with Privacy Policy, Contact Us, About Us, etc. stuff. Actually, I used the template provided in PPCF 2.0. So I don't really think that's the reason I was suspended(I wasn't banned, but suspended).

    That sucks, I spent like, 6 hours to work on that site.

    I guess it doesn't matter, I learned how to use WordPress and god creating a site was faster than ever!

    Alright, can I use the same address?

    if you closed previous account, probably you can but it's better to avoid this situation. You can always change it later if this is necessary. To create use new one.

    OK, I've got my old house's address that I think I can use.

    Google Adwords DOES NOT need my real address to do anything at all, right?

    Well thanks to BHW!

    WF people doesn't help. :(

    Anyway, cheers!

    Google can see your computer's mac address, so unless you're using a different pc when opening a new account...it's all for nothing.
