My entire site was disapproved due to site policy. I sell mathematical algorithms for horse racing. I see similar sites advertising, although not selling algorithms.Anay ideas? Site is winnermetrics.com. Anay help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Gary,

 

Can you clarify whether you site got suspended or your account was suspended because of the domain you were advertising?

 

I did a quick glance at your site and it looks the case of policy violation related to Casinos and Gambling as far as my understanding goes. I would honestly suggest you to read this policy as well for more details:

Hi Pankaj:

Thank you for responding.

I read the policy carefully. I do not think my site violates the policy, especially when I see similar websites are advertising. I find it distressing that some advertisers with similar products are allowed to advertise.

Hi Gary,

 

Can you clarify whether you are completly banned from advertising or is it just the site which got suspended?

 

The policy varies from country to country as well depending upon their specific laws related casinos/gambling. I am not sure which country you were targeting.

 

You can also fill up this form and report the ads to Google directly if you think they are violating: https://support.google.com/adwords/contact/feedback

BTW- I do have 2 ads running that were approved, but when I try to put on more effective ads they are all disapproved. I even tried an almost identical ad to one that was approved. I am not personally banned as far as I know. It is just my website and URL as far as I know.

Hello there;
I completely agree with Pankaj. Your site clearly violates the policy;. Carefully review the Policy.
