Fix the site;

Remove the affiliate ads . Have the site a pure content landing page. Have the content with added value (your experience; your thoughts - do NOT copy/ paste content already there.)

Hello;

Can you fix the web page? (There are affiliates that would not let do that)

If you can fix the web page,   it can be re-submitted.

hi i own the website and it was a landing page reviewing a product with the option to purchase through a affiliate link so if i change the landing page to a article instead and remove the product review and affiliate link and change my ad will that work?

also the ad campaign i launched basically read  review of product name

Hello and welcome,

 

To follow Moshe, I would also like to add that being an affiliate you should know about the advertising policies listed in this reference: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/45068?hl=en#

 

Also you should be aware of the Google's URL policy: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/14844#

 

My 2 cents!

hi so what i am going to do after reviewing the information provided is completely redesign my site so that it provides valuable information to viewers i will push my review to a different page and work on adding value but as the domain name has the product name + review in it i could get rid of the review page but it would defeat the purpose of the domain name if i do this

and strive to follow the guidelines in the pages provided and i resubmit my site for a review would it be likely to get my account reactivated?

@john t;

Since you are (well...one of the "not many cases") willing to put the efforts to fix a site - we could have a look at the site and comment BEFORE you submit it.

 

Post the URL once you are done the re-design. We'll have a quick look

 

Read the Policy; make sure you comply with every section. The recommended method is to work section by section, and verify compliance. I agree it is not an easy task;
