    You can't promote it directly because google don't like affiliate ads, this is also apply for most ppc company. If you still want to use ppc, then change your landing page to be something useful for the readers, & insert some affiliate links in the content.

    Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!!!!! Why do people post things they have no idea about? This is just repeating something heard often times that is not even true. IT'S AN URBAN LEGEND! This just drives me nuts!

    OK, I'm calmed down now.

    Nowhere in the Adwords TOS does it say that you can't promote affiliate products. Read that again. Nowhere.

    The reason you got suspended is because you didn't do your due diligence. This means reading the TOS and abiding by the rules.

    Now, I don't know the exact reason you were suspended (you don't say, but then, you don't know the rules) but having seen many CB products, chances are it's because of misleading and inaccurate claims. Example: this gizmo will make your car run on water.

    So read the guidelines in link nicely provided by WTG. Know them. Understand them. Then, don't directly promote any that don't comply with just one rule or has even a smidgeon of a chance of not complying in the future. If you create your own pages, do so keeping those same rules in mind.

    I believe I say google don't like instead of don't allow affiliate ads.

    Please make sure to read the whole reply before replying on it, because you say "having seen many CB products, chances are it's because of misleading and inaccurate claims" => this make my argument of google don't like affiliate ads true, because most of affiliate ads like that, then you say "don't directly promote any that don't comply with just one rule...", this is the same as my comment "You can't promote it directly because google don't like affiliate ads".

    So please, grow up & don't get "nuts" over replies, instead you can help TS directly.

    You're splitting hairs. If you believe they don't "like" affiliates, that would mean in most people's minds that they don't allow.

    >> this make my argument of google don't like affiliate ads true

    Uh, no it doesn't. Not all pages with misleading and inaccurate claims is an affiliate product. And not all affiliate product pages have misleading claims nor are they all CB products.

    My comment is not at all the same as yours. You are blanketing all affiliate products as unpromotable in Adwords. I say they are provided that the landing page follows the rules and policies. I don't know how you can say I'm saying the same. I'm not saying the same at all, in fact, quite the contrary.

    My going nuts was an attempt at humor. I've been trying to help here for a few years. Just seems nobody is listening. Maybe this attempt is the one people will remember and put this thing to rest but I doubt it.

    Got news for you buddy. If your adwords account got suspended you are totally stuffed. You will have to open a new account and this means new PC, new IP, new domain/website, new name, new credit card and more!

    Google doesn't like direct affiliate links.
    If that is the case then don't do it again and make your landing page in some web 2.0 properties
    if you don't have a website.

    I guess you are an underground agent of google selling vouchers and know all the inside stuff what google likes and what does not ? :p

    Can you ask google why they don't like you creating multiple accounts and promoting stuff and make money?

    Most of the CB Products violates google TOS like keyword stuffing, popups etc.. just try to create a different landing page in your website, write something useful about the product and place your affiliate link in the content.

    I suggest that if you are pretty new to adwords, avoid dangerous things like Clickbank in the beginning. Though it is not like you cant promote Clickbank on adwords, but it not for newbies for sure, moreover many of their products are violators of adwords policies and will never allow you to run ads on adwords, no matter what you do.
