Hey All,

 

As we read and discussed many times that  "If We will create multiple accounts for single business can cause permenetn suspension"

 

But What happens if i will do with competitor. If My competitor is always ahead of me and I will create mulltiple adwords account (With adding few ads for same website) can cause permenent suspension for compeititors account also?

 

Just thought, Asking for knowledge purpose only.....I am as much capable to drive leads to my website No need to cheat. But desperate to know this thing.

The same rule applies for everyone: this would be a violation of the "double serving" and you could file a complaint against the competitor.

Once you file a complaint, you attach a screen shot of the ads violating the Policy, and Google can easily find out who is in violation.

Hi Kandarp

If you were to create an account to match your competitors ads, keywords etc...and use their website as well, in hopes of getting them suspended, I think you'll eventually find yourself in some trouble too. Google has very sophisticated systems to identify advertisers...they'll figure it out, I promise.

As Moshe suggested, if you find that someone is violating a policy, report it and ensure that your account is top notch. Don't spend any valuable time trying to sabotage your competitors, it's a waste of resources IMO.

Kandarp,

Basically, anyone attempted this, the Fraud would be the one that lost there account any any other account they own. The billing process, Login, Ip's and other method of investigation would always lead to the fraud, instead of the innocent.

It would be the worst way to attempt to overcome your competition, There are plenty of optimization tactics, A/B testing of landing pages, Ads, and opportunities in your own accounts to create a profitable ROI. It comes down to understanding, learning, monitoring, testing, and managing your account.

Assume that you are my competitor and promoting your business with same keyword and location as mine. Now if I'll create another 2-3 accounts of adwords and run ads same as you (100% similar ads including web url and all)

is that chance google suspend my account with yours also?

Thanks Moshe,

Assume that you are my competitor. Now you don't know I did this thing. In Double serving policy Google may suspend account of mine and yours too. So you can;t promote your website via adwords. (If permanent suspension applies). In this situation how can you come to know that why your account is suspended). ?

Also is there any chance of recovery?
