It's been a while since I last posted, but there is definitely a push on. Reading between the lines, it appears that driving traffic to landing pages with affiliate links outside of google, doubleclick or any related vertical controlled by G is being targeted. In addition, the very existence on your site of such links can also cause the red flag to go up- they don't have to be landing pages.
I cannot believe that we have to justify a business model that has been working since before they formed the company!
It can take months, years even, for Google to get around to audit your site. Best thing to do until they do is make sure it will pass the audit.
The problem is that Google is now banning accounts based on account history even when those ads are DELETED. I'm hearing about this more and more.
second email today saying the site was still suspended but at least this time I got a specific reason
