My adwords account has been suspended. Does that mean I will never get it back or is this a temporary punishment?

I also suspended few months ago. I deleted all my campaigns and after more then a mouth of e-mailing with Google support I gave up... I hop you will have more luck.

Most of my business was based on Google adwords so it was a big trouble for me. I started to look for alternatives and got into the CPV world. I can tell you that for me PPC ADS are history. the current and future is on CPV.

In regards to the original question - it depends on why you were suspended, whether you know why you were suspended, whether you've taken action to fix whatever the problem is, and whether you can convince Google that you've fixed the problem.

In short - "it depends"

@Nirb what is CPV and why do you believe it's the future?

aha found it. CPV = pay per view advertising. Going to try it out, though Adwords display ads campaigns are going to be difficult to beat with their view through conversion tracking and insights feature, publisher network and recent above the fold feature.

I got suspended too by adwords, I am pretty sure it's life sentence. Unless google got bought by another company or their revenue has gone way down, and needed more revenue.

Both are highly unlikely.

You will never get it back. See this url:


"A disabled account may no longer run existing or future ads. Account access will still be available for the purposes of viewing historical data; however, no ads will be allowed to run on this or associated accounts in the future. Likewise, any new accounts opened by the disabled account-holder will also be disabled."

@nirb, I can tell you that the future certainly is not CPV. It's malware traffic and it's an incredibly intrusive form of spam.

Make the most of it while you can. It wont be possible on ChromeOS and other OS' will follow suit.

Suspension is temporary. Expulsion is forever.

Step 1: Call Google: 1-866-2-google. Ask for help.

Step 2: If they do not want to help you, you will need to start over. You will need new credit card with a new name. Do not tie your new account to your old account.

Step 3: Before you submit your new account, double check to make sure your sites comply with the Terms of Service. If your sites were the problem. Move them over to a new domain and change up the content.

There you go, new account, fresh start. Make sure you play within the rules this time and you will be fine.

I heard you could just change the domain name With new credit card info... I can't change the content as mine is user generated!
