Hi Guys,

 

My site was suspended too. Would you please be so kind and take a look at my website also and see what can possibly be wrong there?

I had some Yelp and Thumbtack logos with no links backs and also a seal of 100% Satisfactions Guaranteed that I took off. 
My URL is: http://acegaragedoorsandiego.com/

 

I submitted my site for reconsidaration but no response yet within the last 2 days. 

 

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there;
What was the reason for suspension mentioned in the email received from Google? (Look for this email - it is the key for understanding the issue)

I didn't get an email about the suspension but on the Ad itself it says:

"Limited due to: Products ir services that enable dishonest behavior".

This type of violation usually  signals a business  model violation: i.e. The business model or business practices were in violation. Unlikely that the account will be reinstated.

The business model can't be in violation because there are thousands of businesses that advertise for Garage Doors Service and Repair. We don't sell Viagra, Porn or Gambling, and not offering any Free iPads for anyone who opt-in either. However we did purchase this old domain name from a dropped domain list and could it be possible that this domain was already flagged before on Google under a different owner?

Also, could it be the name "Ace" in the domain which could make people think its "The" Ace hardware store and kind of deceiving them in some sort? (http://www.acehardware.com)   What do you think?

Again, this violation typically  (can't say for sure)  means a fundamental business practice or business model which is not allowed. 

Briefly looking, I notices other violations on the site. But, based on the section you mentioned as a violation - the core violation is the business itself -  not the site.

But the business is "Garage Door Repair", there are thousands of sites on Adwords nationwide advertising exactly the same. Why flag us?

Here's some of our competition landing pages from a quick search on Adwords:

And do you want to tell me that this page doesn't violates any Google Webmasters guildlines? 

====>>> http://floridagaragedoorinstallation.com/   - I found it on Adwords too!

 

This is ridiculous and I honestly don't accept your answer about a "Business Model" problem. Its like telling me that your can't advertise a Plumbing Services because of a bad business model.
