Will Adwords Approve This?

I had four questions...maybe more depending on the answers I get.

 

If I had a site with only 1 article written by me, say 300-400 words. Eg. good food to eat to stay fit.

 

1) Would google adwords allow me to promote my site (As I just want my site to be known to the internet). If I wanted to bid on specific keywords that are in my article, will adwords approve it?

 

2) Lets say again I had a different website with one article only about a product (like a review of the product). Am I allowed to have a banner at the bottom on my site that leads to my affiliate link (cpa product)?

 

3) Do I need to have a privacy policy and stuff like that on my sites even though I don't have a landing page? Just a basic short article is all I have on my site about something that is important to me.

 

4) Can I bid on keywords that are somewhat related to my site with that one article? So lets say my sit is

about good foods to eat. Can I bid on keywords like "how to lose weight"?

 

I can't design at all, im terrible with landing pages so I want to have a plain wordpress site with my main article on it, whether its for cpa or just an article without any links.

 

Hope some adwords specialists can help me.

Zero F.

1.) Yes, Adwords is based on the idea of "keyword targeting" to trigger ad's promoting a website, service, local business or important message. However you need to clearly read through the adwords help and basics within the google product forums and understand that the quality (or lack there of) of your website will impact your quality score, which in turn will increase your cost to advertise as well as negatively impact your positioning in the ad results.

2.) Yes

3.) No, Not for adwords advertising in general, but it is considered to be important from a SEO (Organic results) point of view if you are collecting data from a visitor such as name, address, phone number, e-mail or payment information

4.) Refer to answer of question 1

"I cant design at all....." - When our car breaks down and we don't have the skills or time to repair it ourselves we take it to a specialist who is qualified; a "mechanic". Now sometimes we will shop around to balance "qualifications" against "cost", but in the end we still goto a specialist for their tradecraft. If you know you are lacking certain skills for your online endeavor then you should consider spending initial funds on a qualified web designer and Adwords partner to help you out properly. Otherwise, you are likely to find yourself spending various amounts of money in advertising online with little to no comparable return.

Where do I find out the quality score of my site? I never knew there was such a thing.

I, somehow, have the "weird" feeling that your goal is to drive traffic to your site, which has no added value for users, just to "drive" them to click on your affiliate ad.  This would not work. Your landing page has to provide added value to users.

in addition to the affiliate or bridge issues, many
health, food, or weight related (article) sites tend
to fail the product effectiveness or claims related
advertising policies.

You may read Google's information on Quality Score through the link below as well as read one of the ways, how to view the quality score.

As a side note: The replies from others are sharing insight to you outside f the question you asked but I am in agreement with them. What you are wanting to do can "be done" but the method your trying to do is likely to run afoul of other Google policies. Ultimately, you need to really evaluate the structure and quality of the content of your landing page before trying to use adwords to drive traffic to it. If the site content (outside of the affiliate link) doesn't meet Google's other guidelines it is unlikely to be served in the adspace and/or organics. Maybe read up on Google's polices regarding gateway sites and affiliate marketing websites. - Good Luck!
