My Site-->     http://how-to-lose-belly-fat.online-reviews.tk/

 

 

Here's 2 problems adwords has found with my site on adwords-->

 

1. Site Policy: We've determined that your site doesn't comply with our site policies. Because of this, any ads promoting this site have been disapproved.

 

2. Your sites violates our Advertising Policies and as a result we aren't displaying ads. The name of the policy is: User safety.

 

 

What can I change to meet adwords "advertising policies" and "user safety" guidelines?

  • The promotional credit is non-transferable and may not be sold or bartered.

HI

I think it depends on which country you are promoting this as in some countries like spain it says

Google doesn't allow the promotion of websites that promote weight-loss related products if they meet any of the following criteria:

  • Claim medicinal properties
  • Promise specific results
  • Use endorsements by individuals, celebrities, or organizations

Hi,

 

This generally happens if AdWords has found some malicious content on the website. Why not try contacting AdWords Support with your issue and they will come back to you with the specific problem that your site has.

I just received a reply from google adwords.  They're now saying the following--->

 

 

"We've reviewed your account and found that it unfortunately doesn't comply with the following promotional credit requirements:


- The promotional coupon is non-transferable and may not be sold or bartered.

- One promotional credit per customer.

- A promotional code can only be used in the territory where it's originally distributed. "

 

I did use a promotional credit of $100 from a friend.  What part of that is against adwords guidelines?

Hey,

 

Is the currency of the promotional coupon different from the billing currency of your account? Or, has that coupon been used in another account?

Ya, I figure Adwords just doesn't appreciate something with the promotional credit. So, whatever. Forget Adwords, lol
