Activating Google Adwords Account

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Quite a while ago, in fact back in 2010, I created a Google Adwords account Customer ID: 5263971591, but did not activate it because the website that I was going to list was going through some upgrading exercise. It has taken a long time for the website to be finalized and it is still not ready as of today.


My question is ....... can I still activate my Adwords account if the website becomes available soon?


Thank you.

Hi Alan T,


First, for your protection, I would remove your CID and email from your post.  This is a public forum and the information posted here is indexed by search engines etc...


Now, I would suggest that if you can still log into your account and it's in good standing (there are no suspensions or other issues), I don't see why you couldn't make use of it today.  The only thing you need to make sure of is that ANY domain that you've set up in your account must be in good standing, regardless of if the ads ran or not.


All paused ads (domains/websites) are still reviewed for accuracy, relevancy and for policy issues.


Hope this helps!
