    All of a sudden my keywords say that i have reached my budget. Not possible. Did the online help and they needed to escalate the matter. I asked if there was something wrong and they said they could not say at this time.

    Will certain keywords get you axed right away? I was toying around with cracks, serials and keygen keywords.. Will this get you deactivated.

    Just curious what went wrong.

    Sometimes they tell you, sometimes they don't. Keep us posted tho, I got a few friends that are doing the same kinda thing as you.

    It's possible that your account has been reviewed for fraud. I don't want to have you jump to any conclusions about it, but the exact same thing happened to me awhile ago where my daily budget was "exceeded" when clearly i had it set to $10k per day and it wasn't near there.

    It's really not the keywords that will push the further review, it would be for another problem. You will be told within the ad*words panel if your kw's are unsatisfactory. Their support on everything is secretive and mostly unhelpful but i hope for you this is resolved and you can go on marketing.

    anything i can do at this point? Should I change my landing pages?

    i know a few members here that are running similar campaigns and landing pages because i see their ads on the same page as mine. i hope they didn't turn me in to eliminate competition, because payback is a bitch.

    If they ban me, will my account be closed, or will i be able to log in and left in limbo.

    This happened to me not long ago. This is what they do when reviewing your account (that's what it was in my case). After a couple of days I logged into my account and everything was back to normal. Only info I got from the big G was it was under review.

    It could be a random thing with them, who knows. Like WhiskerBiscuit said you won't
    get much help, if any from them. Hopefully it's nothing and you'll be back in business in
    a couple of days.
