Is this Advertiser Double Serving?

Hi everyone, 

 

I have been in SEM for years and I can't believe that Google has not been able to shut down even the most obvious occurrences of double serving. Take a look at this situation and tell me this isn't violating any policies...

 

Let me know what you guys think!

Hi Alex,

 

Based on the initial information provided by you, I see the advertiser is double-serving ads with different domains. I would highly recommend to submit your feedback on https://support.google.com/adwords/troubleshooter/4578507?rd=1. This will be reported directly to the Policy team.

 

Thanks!

Shafi Ahamed

This advertiser violates the healthcare and medical section of the Policy, and should be banned regardless of the double serving.

Hi MosheTLV,

Thanks for your response... where can I get more info on policies surrounding healthcare/medical? Does it apply to supplements and vitamins?

Hi Kathleen,

Still no action taken... how long does it take for these issues to be addressed by the policy team?
