Hi, I've created an AdWords ad for my site www.english-for-winners.com The ad was dispproved saying that it advertises a site that has been suspended. What's wrong with my site? Why has it been suspended? 

 

Thanks,

Torsten

Hey There,

 

Your site looks like a 'bridge' page, which is against AdWords Advertising Policies. Take a look at the below link:

 

http://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=190435

 

It also looks like once you get to the second site, its not secured (https) even though you are asking for personal information, nor did I see a privacy policy. See below:

Thanks,

Hi Torsten,

 

If you fix the problems that BI pointed out and manage to get your site un-suspended, I think you're also going to have landing page quality issues.  I suggest reading this help center page in addition to the ones that BlueIon suggested: http://support.google.com/adwords/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2404197

 

The thing that made me think "low quality" is mostly the long, single-column page lots of lists that have big check marks in front of them.  There's nothing really wrong with that, but it's typical of lots of low-quality and even scammy sites, many of which are generated from templates sold by other scammers.  I can't find any evidence that yours is a template-generated scam, which is good; you seem to have a real business selling something you created yourself, so I hope you can succeed with AdWords.  Still, I suggest updating your design once the policy violations are fixed.
