Hi Utilitiesindia,

 

Just to elaborate slightly on Heta's response.  The actual wording from this page is slightly more detailed:

 

Why won't you show multiple ads leading to identical or similar landing pages?

 

"To ensure the best possible user experience, AdWords won't show multiple ads leading to identical or similar landing pages at the same time. This is true even if the pages have different domains."

 

Basically, this policy is not limited to just one account, this is across ALL accounts so SERP's are not overloaded with affiliate ads etc... 

 

Hope this helps!

Hey,

 

Google believes in the best user experience. To ensure that this happens, two ads from the same account will never be displayed on the Google SERP.

Elaborating a little on this:

This is a famous section of the Adwords' policy,  commonly known as  "double serving":

 

  • "....As such, we do not allow advertisers or affiliates to have ads across multiple accounts for the same or similar businesses, or ads across multiple accounts triggered by the same or similar keywords."
  • "When we find that an account isn't in compliance with our double-serving policy, we'll prevent multiple related ads from appearing on the same query."
