    Okay so here I am in North Georgia looking for a job while remaining loyal to my decision to someday be a full time internet marketer.

    We moved here from central Florida to be closer to family, which is why I haven't posted much in the last month or so. We've been busy finishing a cabin to live in. Today it is 17 degrees outside. I've been setting toilets, installing the water heater, sinks, ect.

    About a month ago I created 19 Christmas toy sites, but picked up with fam and moved, so no seo was done on them.

    So here we are a few weeks before Christmas and I decide that I might as well use the $100 adwords coupon on my Hostgator home page before it expires December 31st.

    I set up 4 ads for 4 sites and after one day, promptly get the account suspended.

    There are probably lots of reasons I can guess as to why, as I sit and think about it. Mostly due to directing traffic to Amazon. Maybe link redirects within the page? I dunno...

    I am still trying to figure out exactly where Googles ethics stand considering that they place there ads in the darnedest places and seem to try their best to make their ads not look like ads at all in an effort to do the very same thing that I'm doing....Get the click.

    I'm not selling a look-a-like product or over charging. Hmmmm.

    Anyway, I invite you to take a look at one of the sites that was suspanded and see if you can come up with the specific reason as to why.


    Bare in mind that I used this same format in 2008 with Google adwords with no problems.

    All Adwords support will say is that it is a TOS violation and do not try to open another account or the same thing will result.


    I hope everyone is having much success this holiday season and I look forward to sharing success stories soon.

    This is a really strange case, contact them again, call them and just ask them. I can't see anything really wrong with this site. Unless you ever used other accounts from same ip or for same sites... but still normally that doesn't get you banned.

    In my opinion 90% of chances of the cause is the Direct links for amazon...
