Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Then, nada. Impressions dropped dramatically one day, then ceased altogether the next. This despite all keywords cited as 'normal' and all relevant campaigns and adgroups as 'active'
To compound the problem, neither myself nor the site owner has received a single email from Google on any subject, ever!
Nor have I received a response to pleas via the 'Contact us' form.
Can anyone advise a) what the issue might be and b) how to elicit assistance?
The problem has been issued in this forum, but there is nothing you can do.
Probably your KWs or ads or the entire account are flagged / under review.
Keep writing to them and please keep us posted. I'm very anxious to hear the answer. They are not aware how bad they can frighten people doing this!

Aelita, if you have never received a single email from Google, that is odd indeed - and sounds very much like filtering (on your end) of AdWords emails as suspected spam.
I'd explore your email filtering, and the boxes to which suspected spam is sent. I think you may find our emails there.
Also the link that eWhisper provided is worth following. There are a few useful tips there.
Checked out eWhisper's link too, which was useful. I had followed correct procedures, as far as I can see.
The irony is that I'm far from a Google novice, but as I said before I've had the luxury of someone at the end of a phoneline. There is a temptation to ring up old contacts, but I'm trying to be patient..
One question, AdWordsAdvisor perhaps you can help answer! If a campaign was under complete review, surely it would say as much on log-in?
