I am new to advertising with adwords and I am trying to advertise my site http://getyouridealbodyweight.sitemoxie.com and can't seem to get the ad approved.  All I saw was the display URL was against policy and have tried to fix to conform using what I thought was correct in advertising.  I need help on how would I display this.

Hello primohbc2008; welcome;

I have just answered a similar question about a weight loss website that was suspended;

This doesn't make sense I have made sure to be as realistic as possible.  My site gives tips on how to lose weight nothing out of the ordinary.  You can check it out yourself.  I am not sure as to what to do.

Here are two violations I have found, quite quickly:

 

Google AdWords doesn't allow the promotion of the following pharmaceuticals and supplements, irrespective of any claims of legality:

  • Herbal and dietary supplements with active pharmaceutical or dangerous ingredients
  • Products that imply or claim that they're as effective as prescription weight-loss drugs

"Quote: "lost pound of pounds within just a few week "- as the video argues - Is this a realistic claim, supported by evidence.?

Hi Primohbc2008, 

 

MosheTLV gave you some great feedback. I'd add to be careful of the claims and promises that your website is making. Make sure everything said on your site is realistic, credible, and reasonable for most people reading it. 

 

This is part of our user safety policy and you can find more information here.

Hello, 

I've attempted to gain Google Adword approval several times now and each request comes back saying that my site "was not up and running, or can't be found".  I've copied and pasted my URL link and checked it.  It does indeed connect you to my website.  Any suggestions on how to solve this issue?  http://www.klevermoments.com/

Thank you
