Hi, All. Wondered if you could help with some advice.

I was recently made redundant after 20 yrs with the same company, and decided to see if I could make some money advertising with Google (I'd read about others making a decent living this way).

 

I got a couple of books from the library and set up a blog, hoping to use adwords and clickbank to earn some money. I think I made a mistake initially by asking for an adwords account before I'd published the blog (only written it on Blogger) and the blog got disapproved for adwords.

 

I then put some clickbank affiliate links on the blog and published. After a few days with nobody viewing I got an e-mail about free web submission.saying they would put the blog on several search engines for me, so I signed up for them to do that.

 

Meanwhile I decided to sign up for an adwords account and try to promote some clickbank products. I put money into the account, and when it had been accepted I started writing ads for the products.Then one after another of the ads came back disapproved because of Site Policy.

 

As a newby I would like to know, is it the blog that has caused my ban? If so I'd gladly delete it. Or don't clickbank sites meet Google's qualifications? As I got the same Site Policy message for about 6 clickbank products I tried to promote. Any comments or suggestions will be most welcome.Thanks, K-Ron.

Hello again K-Ron;

I looked at your site; It has no added value to users. It simply serves as a "door-way" to other sites selling e-books;

 

The Policy language;

 

">>> "A bridge page, also known as a doorway page, is a web page created for the main purpose of sending visitors to a different site. Bridge pages offer little or no unique content and are considered low value to users. Affiliates that display the same characteristics may also be considered bridge pages. Bridge pages can also be sites that drive traffic from AdWords-compliant content to non-compliant content."

Thanks for looking MosheTLV. I'm a beginner, I made a mistake. I was following a book on blogging from the library, I wanted to do a blog on party ideas (and yes I was hoping to make some money) I added articles and some links. Adwords is too strict and it's hard to understand when they just suspend. Couldn't they just say "we can't accept that blog because:" and give you a chance to amend or scrap and do a new one that they can accept. I'm just going to ask for my money to be returned and find other ways of advertising. So,again, thanks for your help.

 

Cheers,

KRon

If you fix the violation, you can ask for a re-review. (See "How can I request a re-review of my website?" on the link I cited)
