Gain Unfair Advantage Google Adwords

Hi there

Need to know, how is it possible for Google to allow 1 owner to have multiple sites in Adwords offering the same services across a variation of different keywords. He has obviously found a loop hole as he has set up 12 different Adword accounts to bypass Googles advertising policy. Below i have copied the aclk of the 4 ads that popped up for the keyword search "loans for blacklisted in cape town" This evidently shows that they have gained an unfair advantage in the market. Based on this the target audience is the same.


Have a look at their services offered, their apply page, trading hours and Terms of service. All this is identical or similar.

@Sebastian G;

We covered your question in this thread;

https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Ad-Approval-Policy/Double-Serving-Policy/m-p/575641

I can't open the links; to verify that this is the same service offered to the same audience.  Anyway,  we explained  in the other thread, how the violation should be presented to Google, so it will be investigated efficiently (i.e. All components of the violation should be clearly presented to the reviewer,  and a proof that this is the same business entity should be included.)

Hi Moshe

I'm a bit taken back that this cannot be sent off to Google. The screen shots alone speaks a 1000 words of unfair advantage gain within the Adwords space.

Perhaps you can break it down to me as to what i need to provide Google. Base on the previous thread you said that it doesn't look like they are targeting the same audience, but search "blacklisted loan cape town" they have 3 - 4 ads with the same headers. My concern is that Hellopeter.com is filled with these guys scamming people and its not stopping. As per my previous thread they are signing up the same person for the same services disguising themselves as independent companies not being associated with one another.

Have a look at this Facebook page where multiple people are complaining about them. https://www.facebook.com/Action-Against-Loan-Match-Loan-Connector-Lifestyle-Legal-1011244758964327/

As you can see its evident that each link sends consumer to apply page and not home page. Surely the trend is there. Please have a look at services offered and compare apples to apples.

@Sebastian G;

 

This case (as  common with  most Policy cases)  has many details and nuances and thus requires a thorough investigation;  We volunteer here and have limited time. So looking into  deeply into the case is a labor intensive and time consuming  and would be way beyond our scope. On this platform I can only provide general guidance.
