Is anyone else experiencing this? We are afraid to do anything. We are not adding ads. We are not taking advantage of the new stuff google is offering. We just delete ads as they drop in QS. We are paralyzed and slowly dieing.

The only good news is - so many other advertisers have had their accounts closed that our ROI has gone up.

Well kais I should have used you. The account is in review. I basically have done nothing for quite a few months and now I am about to lose the account. 3 days of no traffic and account is still being reviewed. Not sure if that is good or bad. I feel like I have been kicked in the stomach.

I don't know why people keep talking of Google banning affiliates. Many people who are banned were not promoting affiliate programs at all.

I agree with ProfitPuppy. It's not just affiliate businesses getting crucified. Something has Clearly gone very wrong.

Do we get to hear more from AWA? Some clarity?

Come on now when was the last time AWA told you anything of substantial value that wasn’t cut and paste from Adwords help. Point me to something of even mediocre value in the past year. On a simple question regarding who is actually in Google’s Search Partner Network he refuses to breathe a word. And he ain’t about to.

I know of one affiliates site that say they are signing up 8,000 new affiliates a month !
That is ridiculous.
All of those people will be hoping to make a "small amount online" and are really not contributing anything.
But then again I can't really get my head around what affiliates are or what they do.

Please, let AWA tell us why he can't answer the question. Tell me why Google wants to conceal what's totally in the Search Partner Network. And I'm not talking about all those parked domains.

Nobody's stopping him. But I don't think you'll get an answer to either.

This is unfortunate when there is something as disruptive as wholesale account banning going on...
