Your AdWords account: Ads not running due to AdWords Advertising Policies

Sir,

 

I'm new to AdWords and learning how to create a campaign. In the
process of experimenting, I inadvertently created a campaign with
Display URL: stopagingfast.com  thinking it couldn't be seen by anyone
until I'm ready for the add to run. I'm yet to register the domain and created the landing page.

I got in my adwords account an alert that:
Your account isn't active because you haven't entered your billing information.
To activate your account and start running your ads, enter your
billing information. Learn how.

And later in my email that I have violated google adwords advertising policies.

What do I do to correct the error so that my account is not suspended.

Thanks,

Afie

Hi Obarakpora,

 

 

Its Google’s Policy to stop people from advertising some products and services like , cigarettes, Bulk Email Marketing, Firearms etc. Your products or service could be one of those prohibited items. That could be a potential reason.  But you can always call Google and ask for the reason. This happened to me for one of the client where he was trying to sell email address or databases and Google rejected the account and Google didn’t approved the account as it was against Google advertising policy We call it "Google's Slap".  

 

Regards,
Harry Gill
