Suspended site without a reason

My ad says Suspended Site, and there is no reason... what am I supposed to do? I am sure there are no malwares, and site Mcafee verified as well.

Hi Joey,

 

You will have received an email that specifies the policy. Let us know what it says, and the URL of your site.

Ok, no email as such, but I noticed it says in tooltip that my site has misleading content...

My domain is flatbellyreview dot com.

Multiple problems.

 

#1 is that you are an affiliate and the sole purpose of the site is to send people to another site. This is against AdWords policy.

 

Also, Google's bots look for a combination of weight loss, a time frame, and an amount of pounds/kilos being mentioned. You have all 3, so your site gets flagged.

 

The only way you can make this work is to not mention time frames and pounds/kilos, and to offer a product or service that is your own (perhaps an ebook??). Then market the affiliate product to anyone who signs up.

 

And you'll probably find that the conversion rate is too low to be profitable.

Like RobSkelton said, where do we start?  There are so many violations, it hard to nail them all down.  Let me state the most obvious ones:

-Untrustworthy Promotions

-Misleading and inaccurate claims

-Information Harvesting

-Bridge Page Violation

and much, much more but these are the most obvious.  Any one of them can get you suspended, but the worst one of all is Untrustworthy Promotions.  You really should have consulted an independent third party AdWords policy specialist before deciding to put this offer in your AdWords Account.  From my experience, there is much trouble ahead if you don't fix the violations quickly or if you try to get around these violations without fixing them first.

ok, I think the website is having a ghost version of 7 days ago, and Google team continues to see the old version. I am curious, if Rob and Dathen are also seeing an old version.

 

Can one of you confirm if you can see an optin form in sidebar on this url

Yes, we see the side bar optin on the home page and the optin on the video.  My assessment still stands.  Sorry  Smiley Sad   I would suggest a big overhaul of what and how you market your product/services.  Also, I haven't seen your ads and that could also play a big role in your suspension.  You must understand that weightloss products and pills are highly policed by the "G5" as I call them, (Google, Facebook, AOL, Twitter, BING).  Since it is a targeted category, your advertising and business model must be above reproach or Google will not take on the risk of keeping you as an advertising partner.

@Joey G

Your site has several violations: the main 2 are a landing page which its main goal to collect personal information and the second are the claims made about losing weight (which is a very sensitive serve to promote on Google, as Rob already explained)

Overall, unless you completely overhaul  the goals and content of your site, IMHO, the  account will not be reinstated.

Not sure how the @ symbol works with G+, but I have gotten a few notifications that I was mentioned (like this thread) as @Joey G & I am not the person they are referencing.  The thing that is "disturbing" 😉, is that it is always for some kind of infraction our violation.  I sure hope Big G can distinguish between us all & I do not get labeled somehow.
