Some Indian hackers engaged by our opposition seem to have spoofed our site to anything in the Google domains worldwide to show a 403 error.

I am running Bing ads succesfully to our site and anyone can see it from anyplace in the world.

 

Despite numerous explanations to Google staff that this is a problem, and despite proving to numerous help desk folks the site exists on the net (via use of their own android browsers via cellular data connections) nobody is wiling to take ownership of the problem at Googles end.

 

All I get is "your site will stay suspended until it can be seen on the internet".

 

Do I just forget Google adwords and spend my budgeted $1,000 a day with a few of the other ad serving/retargeting platforms/networks. (Bing has a great retargeting setup that includes the GCN for example - they can even retarget search queries).

 

Very frustrating.

 

Thanks for any useful input in advance...

Rick-That is not a possibility at all. If a site is working it is working in your hosting, google have nothing to do with that. If it is working for bing it will definitely work for google also. Can you post your website url?

Hello Rick,

Thank you for calling Google AdWords!


One of my specialist looked into your account and checked the campaign Male Sups USA Only1Mar14, we see that your landing page http://www.supplementreviewsite.com/mens-health-reviews/ is throwing 403 error. Please find the attached screenshot and check with your website developer and fix it.


Sincerely,
Poornima.

Check with your developer if he had blocked some regional ip. I clicked on website and page is opening. Though i dont know whether google will allow this business model or not.
