Thread: Why is my website not being accepted by Adwords?

  1. #1

    Default Why is my website not being accepted by Adwords?

    You can view my website by clicking on the link in my signature.

    I keep getting rejected by the Adwords program, and the only explanation they give me is that my website violates their Site Policy. Is there anything on my website that violates their policies? I went over every single rule and I have yet to find something that violates their terms.

    Thank you for taking the time to help!

    Hmm, that is odd. It does not seem to violate any rules, at least not the obvious ones. Maybe they don't like that you are using other advertisements besides AdSense. Thats really the only thing I see. Im sure someone else can help you a little better.

    I was thinking that too, but I'm sure Adsense and Adwords are treated as separate services. Thanks for trying to help. Anyone else see anything wrong with my website?

    Exactly, thats why I dont think that is it. Have you already been accepted to AdSense? I dont even remember having to get approved by AdWords when I created my account. I just clicked on something through the AdSense interface and joined.

    My Adsense account was terminated because of posing a significant risk. Thing is though, I talked to a representative a few days ago and she said that my website had excessive affiliate links or something of the sort. So I got rid of that, and she had told me she bumped me up for re-review, and that if I don't get approved within 3 days then I have to change my website again.

    Well long and behold, here comes day 5 and no email.

    Is a strange with adds and I think that Google is getting a little bit selective with the clients because there are a lots of them on the web.

    Google made some changes to their policies. I remember that some marketers lost a lot of traffic and money because of that. For example, now you can't advertise with Google if you use an exist pop up, a squeeze page or if you don't have a privacy policy on your website. To solve all your problems, you need to read Google's Advertising Policies.

    How would one make a Privacy Policy? And just out of curiosity, where did you find that page that said you had to have a Privacy Policy? I know for Google Adsense it is required. I didn't know it was needed for Adwords as well. Thankfully, I don't have any popups adds, squeeze pages (I believe squeeze pages are Interstial advertisements?), and whatever is not allowed on the rules.

    Hi Jay,
    Sorry, I think I made a mistake. I misunderstood you. Sorry about that. I was mainly talking about advertisers just to tell you about the recent changes. I first learned about them from a famous Internet Marketers and a self-made millionaire. Some of his friends with million dollar businesses lost a lot because of these changes.

    I think your issue lies in the excessive use of affiliate links. I also saw Chitika on your website. I wonder whether the content you have is enough to use Adwords, Chitika and other monetization methods or not…

    Hey Thatsme!
    It seems you own a great knowledge about Adwords. Well I am also thinking of going for adwords but I am bit nervous as I don't know where to pay the money, how to get the voucher code, what payment method should I choose etc. I have read a lot about adwords in Google Adwords Help center but when I go for 1 topic they keep on digging me with a lot of deep links.
    What if I request you to start a thread in which you can post the all essential adwords steps in a simple format as you might have followed to get your adwords account!

    Google tends to get mad at "Make money online" websites, they presume everything is a scam, and try to make it hard for marketers to publish their sites.

    Copy the privacy policy here http://www.jensense.com/2008/03/05/a...ishers-to-use/ and change it to your own url and website name. Post a link to the changed policy on your site on every page.
