I own a page where I provide users with betting tips. I sell these picks for money. I would like to promote this page on Adwords but was told that I need to be certified. How is that done? Can anyone help?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I have seen and read this page. It's to vague ans many things just seem unclear. Seems that there are to many obstacles before acquiring a licence. I need to speak to someone that has actually done this before, and have that person guide me through the process.

Thanks

Hi Arkadi,

 

I highly doubt you will find someone willing to walk you through the process.  The reality is many folks before you have considered running ads for "gambling tips" and have not been approved.  Based on the policy, Google has taken a stance regarding gambling and they choose not to allow many instances of gambling related sites to advertise.

 

You can browse many previous threads where this topic has been explored here:  https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/forums/searchpage/tab/message?q=gambling

You don't need to be certified to run a Google AdWords campaign, however, sports betting/gambling type websites are off limits on Google ppc- do a search of a keyword and you will not see any ppc ads for those types of sites.
