Hi Wale,

Your site is definitely against Google policy.

Landing pages that are solely designed to send users elsewhere
Examples: Bridge, doorway, gateway or other intermediate pages

Pretty much anything to do with affiliate links is not allowed.

Also, Max Bounty shows different ads to people not in the targeted region. This is not allowed either.

Hi @Wale B,

 

You may want to read this epic article posted by Google Employee @Prashanti back in 2012:

It may give some limited hope to would-be affiliates. (New developments should be followed, of course.)

 

Best,

Lakatos
