Hi,

My site has also been suspended, with little explaination. The landing page is http://hypnosisindublin.ie/quit-smoking if anyone can see what the problem is I'd be very grateful.

Hi tonigel,

 

You could certainly use a privacy policy.  If you're collecting any user information, you must disclose how you will be using that information.

 

There could be other issues as well.  I personally don't see any glaring issues as you're not promising anything completely outrageous but again, I'm not a policy specialist. 

 

Contacting Adwords Support is always an option for you.  See if you can find out more information.

 

Also, your whole site will be reviewed, not just your landing page.

 

Good Luck!

 

-Tom

Hello tonigel;
It seems to me, that your site violates the "user dsafety" section of the Policy.

Tonigel, same goes for you. Additionally, Google doesn't exactly like the quit smoking vertical. There have been quite a number of scams, as well as "affiliate deals" in the space that Google has moved to get rid of. Google Adwords may not be the place to drive traffic to your biz. (I know it sounds harsh, it is. I've just seen Google do this too many times.)

Oo oo oo I might know the ANSWER to this one.

 

I just had a similar problem myself.

 

You =have= to have your physical address on the landing page.

At least, that's what they told ME.

I'm awaiting resubmit, but SOMEbody in google was actually specific enough to

tell me that they required

- full physical address

- software uninstall instructions

on the landing page.  (I guess if there's not software - in your case - you obviously wouldn't need that).

 

good luck to ya.

I =knew= I wasn't the only one who thought the Disapproval "reason" I got back from google was totally vague.

Hi MosheTLV,

Thanks for that, is there any part in particular that stands out to you as being in violation (it being my website, I can't see it myself, if you know what I mean).

Hi,
That makes sense because I did take the address off it recently. Thanks a mill, I'll put it back on now before I send it for review (again............)

Thanks for that, added short privacy policy which should cover it.

tonigel;
I think, for start, the following clauses of the user safety section of the Policy, are not covered by your site: (My own view):
  • Promote products with realistic, credible, and reasonable claims - How effective is Hypnosis - Is your treatment supported by credible scientific work?
  • Ensure that sites contain relevant disclaimers and announcements that may be required by local law – for example, certain types of service providers may need to include specific text per governmental regulations - is Hypnosis regulated under Irish law, EU directive or EU regulations?
  • Provide users with accurate information about the risks associated with their product or service Certainly there might some risks associated with Hypnosis ...
