Hi, my dad has an adwords account which he uses to promote his website, I have also used his adwords account to promote my website. I have now opened my on adwords account and plan to use it to promote the same website i used on my fathers adwords account. Would this be allowed? Also we live at same household address

 

Thanks

Hi

Yes, But i would like to inform there is one another option which is called MCC Account. With MCC you can manage both accounts with single login.

 

For your question, You need disable your father's account to run his website in your account.

Hi Jon,

As i said above, Go to https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1704399?hl=en
Create MCC, Add your father;s account as a client. So you can run both website in single login and no need to disable any account.

I was just worried about because my website has been used on his adowrds, that it might been seen as double serving if i promote the same website on my adwords account?

Thanks

Hi Again,

You will not get penalized as far as you run a single campaign at a time. But if you are running two ads then you are violating double serving policy. Hope this is the answer you are looking for.

Until and unless you start running two campaigns with two separate accounts using same domain simultaneously, you will not be penalized. But this is not a best practice. If you run two campaigns with two separate accounts using same domain simultaneously then it will violets Google's policy which is called ""Double serving"".

that's why I am suggesting to have MCC Account.
