    Hi,

    I am running a offer and my domain name is exact the same as the official site's domain name. Just TLD is different. The problem is that i have been notified by my AM that advertiser dont allow Trademarked domains or bidding on trademark names and wants me to stop sending traffic from that page. Please tell me what to do now so that i dont have to stop the traffic.

    You could redirect the traffic from the TM domain to another domain, where you would transfer the content. And the traffic will get to the offer from the other domain, not TM.

    EDIT: So if you're using PPC traffic, you could let it get to TMdotc0m and it will be redirected to NOTMdotc0m

    If i will redirect the traffic to another domain i could lose my rankings. I am not using PPC i am using SEO.

    If you will use the trademark domain you won't get paid. I would chose the redirected way, although I would lose rankings.
