    Hey all. My adwords campaigns have been stopped for well over a year now, but just recently, I switched into valid payment information. Didn't even bother starting up those old campaigns again, just left them well enough alone. A few hours later, I get slapped with an AdWords suspension. Just before, mind you, JUST BEFORE I would launch what I felt would be a successful CPA campaign. I had done the research, I had talked with my AM, I was in the middle of making a landing page...but no. SLAP.

    Here are a couple of the E-mails I had gotten over it, first when they suspended me and their vague-as-all-hell reply after I asked them why. (Account number left out.)

    Hello Thomas,

    Thank you for your email.

    I did look into your account(197-687-4327) and see that it is suspended
    due to policy issues as a result ads have stopped serving.

    Having thoroughly re-reviewed your account(197-687-4327) data, our
    specialists have confirmed that we're unfortunately unable to un-suspend
    your account.

    Read their policies before start a campaign. They are strict on that. Think new method or use cloaking.

    Did you have all the old campaigns paused? Just because they are paused does not mean they are not subject to their terms. I found that out the hard way as well. Received warnings for ads that have been paused for months. I like keeping the history of old campaigns but I've found its just easier to delete it.
