Hi,

I used to have an adwords account a long time ago, but stopped using it. Recently i decided i wanted to start fresh and cancelled my previous account and created a new one (to advertise the same business).

So my question is:

is there any problem if I use the same credit card?

since my previous account is cancelled, is there any problem if i advertise the same business?

Why start fresh?

Hi teraric,

 

Why start fresh if you're going to promote the same account?  You already have the shell for an account and some history built up, you can "delete" old campaigns and start new ones without any issues.

 

Are you planning on using the same email address from the old account on the new one?

 

I would warn you that you may be walking a fine line and the best course of action for you may be to contact Adwords support (button is on top right of screen). Explain the exact situation and see what they have to say.  You'll be much better off knowing exactly what 'could' happen rather than responding if something 'does' happen.

 

Someone else may be able to better outline the possibilities but contacting support will never hurt you.

 

Hope this helps!

One business - One account Policy

teraric,


As Tom suggested, be advised, that One business - One account , is a firm policy of Google AdWords. Advertising the same business on two different accounts may result is suspension of your account - permanently.

So, if you have an active AdWords account, and wish to open a new one (for the same business) , do that only AFTER closing the first one.
