Why is my site suspended

I am running a website which have the sole purpose of enlightening readers of Google's rules. I started a ad campaign with the sole purpose of increasing the awareness of my website. The ad was not designed to promote any of the affiliate links associated with the site (as far as I know none of the affiliate sites contravene the guidelines).


Needless to say I now have a suspended account because Google's automated system decided that something on my site contravene the guidelines. The comment next to the ad says "site suspended". Why I don't no because I am promoting the Google way. Weird.


As usual Google AdWords is very unwilling to help. I need guidance to resolve.

Hi Henry,


You might have received a mail regarding your account suspension. Have you..?

You are violating a number of policy sections;


You need to systematically verify compliance of every section of the policy. Review and verify compliance of each clause;
Work with your programmer to verify compliance of all other sections of the Policy;
The recommended method is to work section by section, and verify compliance. I agree it is not an easy task;

Only then - you can resubmit your site;
