Am I allowed to send AdWords traffic to a survey?

I have a simple page with 7 questions for a survey I am running. I want to collect answers to understand better the customers of next project.

 

I checked the AdWords policies, but couldn't find anything related to surveys. Do any of you guys know if it's OK or not to send AdWords traffic to a survey?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello DanielS;

 

Check the information harvesting section.

As MosheTLV said, you should check "information harvesting section" and how can you go around this. You may not be allowed unless you published some privacy policy there and the type of inforation you are collecting.

Why not just survey your current customer database? I'd suggest you look into finding a list provider that will allow you to send an email out to a specific demographic. Google can be very strict about harvesting info.

Hi DanielS

 

Did you crack this?

 

I am having a very similar problem compounded by both my and a lack of specific knowlege / apparent guessing at answers from various (attempting unsucessfully to help me) customer services individuals who are asking questions such as "which website are you promoting" and "what do you want from your analytics" rather than what I want which would be "yes, we can help you promote your survey which will result in you giving us money for your adwords and your survey responses"

 

There must be a simple route through this morass but I haven't found it, perhaps you have?
