I'm seeing new accounts getting banned for life in under 24 hours for advertising brick & mortar small businesses. Or they just get dropped into perpetual "waiting approval" states for weeks and months.
what about goog certified adwords people? is goog slapping them around just as hard?
If you're a little guy, keep your head down. And pray.
no, just go to bing/yahoo
And then there's the "associated accounts" ban. I've seen reports this has been triggered by using wireless at coffee shops, library computers, etc. because for example, a previously banned advertiser may have logged into Gmail on those same IPs. These people are then banned without any recourse.
yea just imagine if you are a small agency managing many accounts, one gets tagged and uh oh you can't touch any of those other accounts or POOF now all of your customers are banned from adwords.
