I have 2 sites that run a similar offer using same keywords. To do this I would need to set up 2 accounts. Is Google going to boot me if one of the accounts is in my wife's name? The credit card on her account is different as well. Only difference is hosting of domains is on same server.

Your insight appreciated.

Are you talking about AdWords or AdSense? I think maybe you're talking about AdWords.

If the sites are similar and use the same keywords, you might get away with it for a while, but eventually I'm pretty sure one or both of them will be disallowed.

You can't double serve, and there's just no way that two people using the same address and the (possibly) same name and the same server aren't going to look like they're double serving.

Thanks - and you'e right - sorry, I was talking about Adwords.

I can move it to a different server. I guess I just get frustrated because I know my competition is doing this about 4 times over. I wonder legally though how they can maintain its double dipping if one account is in my corpration name - and the other in my wife's. Same address though.

(is it possible to move this to Adwords?)

All I will say is if you happen to wander into a niche where I advertise for myself or my clients, and I suspect it, I will most certainly make a stink about it to my rep.

Regardless of whether or not your competition is doing it, that doesn't excuse YOU doing it.

Sheesh.
