Removal due to pop-ups
How do I stop it?

So I posted 50 adwords last week. They were all removed because the page that they link to has a pop up ad on it. Is there any way to get around this. This is not spam, our pop up ads are for our own site. Is there nothing that I can do about this at all?

Remove the pop ups - then, once the ads are live again ( if you must ) add the pop ups back in.

You might also consider getting very sneaky...try to cloak the site, and serve Google people the one that doesn't have the pop ups. :)

We added a pop-up at xmas time months after the ads were listed. Ours was simply to let customers know when their last order date to receive by xmas was. They still shut about half of our ads down. We ended up having to come up with code that disabled the pop-ups for clicks coming from adwords. BIG PAIN! Especially since the pop-ups were a service not an ad.

- As Jeremy said, remove the popups. Once your ads are approved, re-insert the popups.

- Remove the pop-up from the drop page only. AdWords editors generally overlook popups/popunders at other pages in your website.

Why does everyone think that Google is so dumb that they won't catch on to all of this sneaky stuff?
As someone noted above - all it takes is one complaint about the popup and you are disabled.

Personally, I detest popups in any shape or form, regardless of who or what they are advertising.

It is in the terms and conditions that they do not allow links to pages with pop-ups. The pages are checked more regularly than you think and will be removed again if you put the pop-ups back in.

The best way to approach this is to create new pages, the pop-up info and content all on the same page nicely merged. You could probably do this with a programming language such as Perl quite easily by marking start and end of content with specific comment tags. Then you could point Google AdWords to a this specific page such as:
www.webmasterworld.com/cgi-bin/adwords.cgi?page=content.html&popup=popup.html&tracking=AdWords

Then your 'ordinary' visitors get the popup, AdWords users do not (but still get the info) and you do not risk a ban for cloaking.
