Why New Account Suspended

Google suspended my new account because I violated their terms and services!  What????

I can't figured out what I violated as I haven't even launched 1 campaign!  I haven't started anything, and they suspended my account!


All my information is real, my credit card is real, my website is legitimate!


As big as Google is, it has a horrible customer service!  I used to respect and admire Google, that has all changed!!!  Thanks for nothing!

Hi Vincent,


Thanks for your posting.  If you like, I am posting the steps to request for a review of reconsideration of your suspended Ads and/or Account: 


In order to fix this issue, first you'll have to make changes to your website to ensure that the following quality guidelines are met:

Quality guidelines 


Once you've addressed the issues on your website so that they follow our quality guidelines, the next thing you should do is get your website verified by Google. You can do this through your Google Webmaster account:

1. Sign into Google Webmaster Tools with your Google account at
2. Click the "Add a site" button, and type the URL of the site you want to add. Make sure you type the entire URL, such as
3. Click "Continue." The Site verification page opens.
4. (Optional) In the Name box, type a name for your site (for example, "My Blog").
5. Select the verification method you want, and follow the instructions.


Once you've fixed your site and verified it, now you can submit your site for reconsideration and get it reviewed again.

Hi Vincent,


There are several reason why your new account may have been suspended.


Sometimes it may even be out of your control. For instance, sometimes depending on the industry or niche your keywords and your website is targeting... Google's system automatically flags new accounts. I have several clients in the personal finance / lending industry where this happens. The reason why the system automatically flags an account is because they are operating in an niche that Google has labeled 'High-Risk'... and the automatic flag is designed to notify Google to have a manual reviewer review the account first to make sure everything is okay before they are allowed to run.


Some of the high-risk industries where I've seen this happen for my clients include:


- Loan Industry

- Affiliates (Make Money Online)


I don't know what industry you are targeting... but if you would like to get a 2nd opinion from an independent authority on Google AdWords Policy compliance... just let me know and we can take a closer look at your situation.
