Question about misleading or unrealistic promotions...

Hi,

 

I have a site - http://www.snowballbiz.com

 

I just setup a landing page for Youtube retargeting:

 

http://www.snowballbiz.com/free-video/

 

I submitted the ad and got an email saying:

 

Policy violation: Misleading or unrealistic promotions

 

We won't be able to run any of your ads that link to that site, and any new ads pointing to that site will also be disapproved.

 

How do you figure out what they feel is "unrealistic"?

 

Thanks!!

 

Jason

Is the account suspended or the ads disapproved?

Hi,

No. They just said - "Therefore, we won't be able to run any of your ads
that link to that site, and any new ads pointing to that site will also be
disapproved." (Until it's fixed)

And when I went into my account - the ad said "Serving". But I paused it.

I do have on my landing page that I've driven over 1,200,000 visitors with
paid traffic. So I wonder if that is the issue.

Thanks SO MUCH!!!

Your site has a number of violations;

Indeed, some of the claims are unreal / unsupported...(e.g. "The easiest "low risk" strategy for getting paid traffic FAST without wasting money." "Jason Nyback is one of the leading experts in the world at using paid traffic"...and more)

 

You are also violating the information harvesting clause. I am  sure that  and if I look deeper  -I  will probably find other violations...

 

What I am surprised is that the account was not suspended...
