I've read other posts on this and we don't relate in any way, our service is a service selling live receptionist services direct to clients. We aren't an affiliate and I don't believe anyone had this domain prior to us.


Any ideas why we would have been banned? We just created a new account last week and were banned the next day. Thanks!

Hi Shaun,


Nothing jumps out at me from your web site.


How did you set up your account?

Do you use the same credit card for another account?

Did you set up multiple campaigns with the same targeting and keywords?

Was your credit card declined?

Did you get an email from Google? What did it say?


Any other info you can provide?

Hi Shaun,


There are a number of reasons that could lead to an account suspension related to a violation of our terms and conditions. In some cases, we're able to provide details and request a re-review from our specialist team. In others, for security reasons, we're unable to provide further information.


It's best to contact our support team via 1-800-2GOOGLE to ask about your specific situation for your account. Our team would be happy to research further for you.


Thanks for your understanding, and sorry to not be of more specific help (since we're not able to access/post about your account specifics on this forum).

I did call and opened a case, it's been a week and the nice adwords person who I am working with can't seem to get an answer from her elevated ticket with the California team. Thanks!
