Hello Community
I am using adwords in my personal account. Now few clients want me to run their adwords campaign. My queries are:
1) If I set up 5 adwords account for 5 different clients for different business niches and 2 accounts out of them get banned due to any policy violation then the remaining 3 accounts will also get banned?
2) This ban can result in getting my own adwords account banned as well because all are accessed by same IP?


I read about that I can take MCC account but I am not sure what may happen in case of suspension of any 1 or 2 accounts.


All valuable inputs are welcome.


Thank you

Hi @Monu,


If the accounts are completely separated and you only manage them as an invited manager, there will likely be no interaction between the accounts in case of an issue. If you create a Manager Account (formerly MCC), the linked child accounts under your management will be regarded by Google as related accounts. You will be responsible for each of them separately but primarily: for all of them as a whole. It means that serious issues experienced with any of them will have an impact on all of the accounts; kind of some sort of collective responsibility. The scope and extent of this collective responsibility is not really documented by Google because most of them are associated with security issues. While in most cases the interaction may be pretty minimal, I would not be surprised to learn that it might go as far as suspension or ban for life in case of a serious, egregious violation of policies. That, in fact, may happen quite a number of times in case of suspicious financial behavior, e.g. attempted tax avoidance.
