    I was promoting my Dating website and I have several sites on the same server, several adwords campaigns..Nothing special, no spamming, stealing, cheating in any way shape or form. After about 2 years I suddenly got all my accts suspended.

    I asked them why and they said this...................

    There are few reasons
    1.Less content
    2.Too much affiliate links
    3. Pharmacy drugs or weight loss products where u push the user to select only one product.

    They must have give u a warning before they suspend u completely
    What u can do

    1.Get a new account for your wifi or friends credit card
    2.Fix above errors and resubmit the site.

    Hi, I've had a look at your site and before I say anything else , welcome to the big G's world!

    1.First of all the site doesn't look too bad and quite harmless fun. It does come across as a thin affiliate site though and that's a no no.

    2.Secondly, what value do you offer on the landing page? None really, so it's difficult for G to gage your site.

    3.Some of your links at the bottom ( they might be your other sites same ip ie japanesewomen dot com and womanjapan dot com is on the same ip range as your main site ) G knows this :)

    Remedy:
    Install a blog on your domain and fill it with good quality content, lots of it. Get rid of the links in the footer and maybe put them in the footer of the blog instead. Get some 100% original content on the front page - a decent article or intro to your site. Provide something of real value to your customers besides signing up ie. ebook giveaway etc

    Once you have all that in place you should be okay to go.

    Good luck

    What's a thin affiliate site? If you are directly selling an ebook is that okay?

    Adding to what Catalonia said - he is quite correct by the way - I think your problem is that you admit having many accounts. If you were trying to dominate the ads using the same keywords for the same kinds of sites, that is a no-no, against the TOS.

    But the main thing, and what Google said in their letter, is that your site got complaints. Probably people figuring out that a bunch of ads were really the same person/company, Google checked it out and came to the same conclusion.

    that account is almost dead. even if it is still functional, another review that comes along can completely disable the account.

    how it goes,

    the ad is disapproved. the account is still active.
    u don't do anything to the ad because the ad is not running after all.

    2nd review, perhaps automated, the account is deactivated.

    i recommend u delete the ads and hope the account stays up.

    adwords is not in a frenly mood.

    I got hit too.
    I removed all my campaigns, left one campaign that goes directly to a brand (non affiliate).
    Will see what happens.
