Ad Double Service

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

There is a company that is double serving ads on Adwords. They have 2 domain names and 2 identical web sites. When you search a keyword, both their ads come up. The web site domains are actually domain-1.com and domain-2.com

 
Will google see this as a policy violation and where can it be reported?

Hi @Josh M,

 

This is the relevant policy:

 

*** Abusing the ad network / Unfair advantage / Change your website or app ***

https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6020954?hl=en

"Each website or app that you promote should offer distinct value to users."

 

Promoting two websites with same business and ownership may be okay, however, the values offered to users should be distinctly different. (E.g. you may want to offer discounted prices or outlet prices on one of the 2 websites and regular prices on the other one.)

 

If you think the values offered to users on their 2 websites are not distinct, you may want to report on them on the form linked-to below:

Best,

Lakatos

Hi Josh,

 

Based on feedback here, don't expect a quick result. But do expect that Google will deal with it in their own time.
