Banned from google adwords - Anyway of getting back on

Discussion in 'Google AdWords' started by ianwilcox, May 10, 2007.

    Hi All.

    I was banned from adwords for bidding on a keyword for downloads which was a product i was affiliating.

    Seems a bit harsh seeing google gave me no warning and are now claiming this is lifetime !!! its like being a criminal drink drivers only get 12 months !!! lol

    Anyway just wondering if anyone who has been banned ever got back in ?

    I.e like using a different location to use adwords on i.e a different computer , ip , country.

    using a fake address and fake name .

    and using a prepaid visa card under the issuers name

    Would this work ?

    Your views

    Regards

    False moustache?

    Seriously, Google are (I've heard) quite good at spotting banned people - I think they'd have to be, or the PPC adverts would constantly be filled with serial offenders, just changing their details whenever they were banned.

    Even if you get back on, it'll be like a Sword Of Damocles hanging over your campaign - I think you're better trying to patch things up with Google - send them some flowers, maybe?

    How do you get banned from Adwords? I mean seriously. I imagine you have to do something really bad for them not to take your money.

    Its quite easy to get another adwords account if you've been banned, not nearly as had as getting a new adsense account.

    Just sign up with different account details, should be fine.

    movie downloads
    download movies etc.

    google didn't actually tell me what keyword it was...

    reading around the forums they have had a massive clear out of movie download software etc and rather than banning urls they have just banned us affiliates without warning... i mean they could of just cancelled the campgains but not perm bans :(

    I like the fact that they ban people who break the rules. Makes it easier for the rest of us.

    When i started with adwords it was fine to bid on these keywords but during the last google slap they disallowed these keywords and people only started to find out about it when there adwords were cancelled and then there banned.

    ok a rule as been broken but give me the chance to cancel there campgains and fall in line with the TOS rather than just banning them!!!

    Ive never known a company that does not want to take someone's money who is willing to go by there current tos!

    and there support staff are no help apparently you cannot appeal about this yet....

    Infact if you ask when u can appeal they will say... soon!

    ianwilcox,

    The problem was not the keywords, but the landing page.

    I've seen a lot of people being banned due promoting movie/music downloading sites and Google is playing hard: they are not giving too many chances to these publishers to understand what is going on.

    Like you said, what's bad is that all of this are allowed before, so when they suddenly changed the rules, they should give us more considerations. And Why not just banned the url in our campaign and suspend the keyword from our campaigns instead of banning our accounts which also advertise multiple campaigns which are not against the TOS??? Or why not just automatically not approve download keywords at the first place?? it seems that google can is just lazy to improve their system and instead of working it out with the advertisers, they just instantly ban you without the chance to explain yourself... we should have a petition or a website so google can hear our side...

    I think its the landing page too. Google doesn't like a lot links going directly to a site. A lot of afiliates are using their own landing pages that eventually send the customer to the targeted site. Google probably tracked the keywords to certain sites that were getting too much traffic.

    thats not true.. they recently started to contact banned domains on google and
    explain to them why they are banned and might give them a second chance.. so why not adwords?

    This is completely different.

    Excluded sites form organic search has no agreement with Google.

    Banned people from AdWords violated agreement with them and they will not give a second chance. I already saw a lot of people trying to convincing them to reconsider and give a second chance - they never give a banned guy a second chance - if you think that you'll be the first go on and try it.

    what if you report your card stolen and your credit card company gives you a new card number, will that work? as i noticed google still accept payments via adwords even though you write a different name and billing address, as long as your credit card info is correct, it still goes through.... what do you guys think?
    will google still know that you used the same card?
