My ad is 'Disapproved' it only says "Site Policy".

I have a new personal blog and trying to get it up and running but my ad is continuously disapproved. I can`t understand why. So I began testing.. I removed all my links to external sites and forums. Re-applied -> disapproved. I put 'TOS', 'Privacy Policy', 'Disclaimer' .. etc. Disapproved again. **bleep** ! I sent 2-3 tickets from the "Contact us" menu. Why Google doesn't explain what is wrong so I can fix it ?

@Moshe, Thank you sir. I received an e-mail with exact explanation why my ads are disapproved. Now I fixed it but the last time it was all ok I didn`t get a running ad.. so I don`t set my hopes very high. At least now I don`t get that annoying automated unhelpful message. I think that if I do everything that the support tell me (nickname or real name Claire Smiley Happy It will be ok. Thanks again, Moshe (and Claire).

Hello Alexand,

 

Please make sure that you adhere to the advertising policies in order to prevent ad disapproval. Kindly refer to these policies here and make the appropriate changes.

 

Hope that helps!

Hello again Alexand;


Well;.. If users do not provide us with specifics, since they rather not reveal their site, we refer them to a general Policy  guideline, that covers all topics. That's what Pankaj did.


As for your site/ blog: we had a very similar case with another training and nutrition blog. Though, the content may differ, your sites - in my view - violates the same section of the Policy.

 

Please read my marked answers, on page 2 of this discussion:


No ads showing for "how to get a six pack"

Moshe, "The page you are trying to access was not found. Please check your URL for typos and try again."
Sooo why I cannot show people what I do ? So if I modify my ad to be "What I did to get my six pack" would it still violate this policy ?

I also have a section that says that this site is not medical and everything inside is my personal opinion on the matter etc.

OK. After I updated everything and I`m 99% sure that everything is ok with the policies. Now I got "Site Suspended" with Landing Page Violations. 5 minutes later .. I`m back on "Disapproved" with 

  • This ad has been disapproved. Site Policy.
  • The ad group this ad belongs to has no active keywords.

I`m sick and tired of this. Is there any HUMAN online support that I can speak with or e-mail for a review of my site. I am prepared to do everything that needs to be done, pay for it ... and yet no support at all.
