Recently my client's website got suspended. It gives stem cell treatment services and is suspended by Google because of violation of policies. Can anyone tell is stem cell treatment permitted to run in Google search?

 

Thanks.

Hello,
As far as I know, it shouldn't be prohibited as long as you don't advertise prohibited items, listed here (it's an article regardint healthcare and medicine advertising in AdWords). 

 

If you comply with the guidelines provided, you should check the exact policy violations, it might be you have your client's site suspended because of other reasons than the services offered in it.Full landing page policy center and some advise how to fix a suspended site can be found here.

Hello Ruchi,

 

Healthcare and medicine are sensitive parts of Google Advertising and there are specific policies framed across this business category. Is it possible for you to share the website URL here?

 

Also, this policy varies from country to country. I would suggest you to read the policy details here: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176031?hl=en

 

Also if its the website which got suspended, then you have to convince your client to make all the respective changes possible to adhere it to the guidelines and then submit it for a review so that Adwords specialist can review it. https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/3441482?hl=en&rd=1

 

My Thoughts!

Stem cell treatment  is still  in research stages, and  not yet approved by regulatory authorities  as a "common acceptable medical practice"   for (illness)  curing. (Though the future looks bright).

Thus,  it falls under the category of  clinical trials - and is prohibited!
