Hey guys, I recently started an ad, it was approved for a day and run amazingly surprisingly. But then i got a message for google ads saying the ad was shut down... This is what it said.

Your promotion is not running because your ad was disapproved. - Disapproval reason: Site violates policy.


my website is <edited by a Community Manager as noted below>


Any reason why?

Hi @Taylor W,


From a quick review, it looks like the site is a collection of topics that push traffic to another site, which is to sign up for an affiliate program. There are far too many outside links and affiliate marketing stuff. Ads need to end on a landing page/website that offers a high-quality user experience and does not simply generate traffic for the purpose of pushing them some place else.  


If you think your ad was incorrectly disapproved, or that your website is not as I state above, you can request a review through the Disapproved ads and policy questions form.


Kind Regards,

Or in other words, unless you have a product or service of your own, that generates an income, then you shouldn't be using AdWords.

Providing free information isn't acceptable - Google knows that in the vast majority of cases the purpose is to send visitors elsewhere. This is a not a good user experience for searchers. Google wants searchers to to reach their destination directly through AdWords ads - not via affiliate links and banners on web sites.
