Why My Account Is Suspended Because Of A Youtube Video That Was Paused 12 Days Ago

 

OK advertisers read this and understand that GOOGLE will suspend your account for no reason anytime they want.

 

I had a campaign running for about 14 days after approval of ads and billing info without any problem and i setup all kind of ads search,banner,video. All was setup for 9 dollars / day. After 2 days i closed the video ad bec. it didn't convert. The other campaigns was ok and running. I payed 50 dollars 7 days ago. So payment was done too. Than about 2 days ago google suggested i should raise my daily budget from 7 to 28 dollars and i did. AND it begin.......

 

First they take my account under review again. Than they open it after about 12 hours. 10 hours later they take it under review and they open it after 7 hours. And they take it under review again. I contacted google live support and she escalate my problem to the policy team.They suspended my account for and they said they will check the problem about my account. When i opened my account today it was pemanantly suspended.  And funny thing they HAD NO REASON TO SUSPEND MY ACCOUNT SO THEY BLAME MY VIDEO AD THAT WASN'T RUNNING FOR 12 DAYS. IT WAS PAUSED AND I ERASED THE VIDEO AFTER I PAUSED THE CAMPAIGN. MY PAGE TOTALLY COMPLIES WITH ADWORDS AND MY BILLING ACCOUNT IS REAL. Here is the reason they sent me:

Hi b19071907,

 

Suspensions can occur for more than one reason, and not all reasons are necessary given in each email notification.  

 

Looking at some of your campaign names and linked resources, I think it's highly likely at least one reason for suspension would be the User Safety Policy, specifically the "Misleading or unrealistic promotions" category, as described here:

I would like to add to what Jon above has posted. In addition to having you site suspended because it contained "Misleading or unrealistic promotions", there are other violations as well.

Your site also offers "Low Value Content" as seen here:
https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6020954?rd=1

 

In this category you will find the following examples of sites that have Low Value Content:

Templated websites or pre-generated websites that provide duplicate content to users

Landing pages that are solely designed to send users elsewhere

 

My suggestion would be not to use Adwords to promote your affiliate website.
