Thank you for your email. I hope you're doing well.
I reviewed your AdWords account 'xxx-xxx-xxxx' and noticed that you have created a campaign with ad and keywords directing to the website 'xxx.com' and since the website is violation our webmaster guidelines policy it has been disabled to run through AdWords.
And this policy is something which is not an advertising policy but a Google search related one.
When a site gets disabled in Google Search it would be disabled for Webmaster Guidelines policy. And unless it is re-enabled in Google Search your website cannot be allowed to advertise with AdWords.
A violation of our Webmaster Guidelines may lead to a site being removed entirely from the Google index or otherwise penalized. When a site is penalized, it may no longer show up in results on Google or on any of Google's partner sites.
Is this real? Is there now a connection between the AdWords team and the Search team?
Since when does a site get "disabled" in Google search? And "re-enabled," where the heck did this terminology come from?
Have I missed something over the past few months?
