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
https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6020954?hl=en-AU

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
