AdWords Account Disabled For Selling Allegedly Fake Goods

I have been running an iPhone accessories e-commerce store for a couple of years now and I used AdWords as my main source of traffic.


My business was very successful, I made a lot of money over the years and I also spent a lot of money on AdWords.

I was in really deep shock when I logged into my AdWords account and I saw that my account has been disabled. Continue reading AdWords Account Disabled For Selling Allegedly Fake Goods


Adwords Alternatives

In this article I will discuss 3 major Advertisement platforms which could be seen as substitute to Adwords, after you have been banned. I tested them on my own business, the results may vary depending on your niche.

Bing (Microsoft)

What I really like about Microsoft AdCenter is their control panel, which is very logically structured and easy to use. I also had contact with their customer service department via phone. I was surprised by the well trained customer service agent, and level of customer service delivered. You can feel they really try hard to win customers over from Adwords.

I am using them for 4 weeks now. They traffic they deliver is good and converts well, similar to what I used to experience with Adwords before they banned my account.

The only issue is that Adwords was able to deliver about 100 visitors to my page a day, compared to Microsoft Adcenter I am getting 7 – 10 hits. It should not be a surprise as the market share of is still very small. Continue reading Adwords Alternatives

Adwords Disabled

I did some research in different online forums and it was shocking to read all those horror stories people were experiencing with Google and how they got their Adwords account disabled. One Adwords disabled horror story that really got me came from a good friend of mine (Bob), he owns an e-commerce business selling perfumes.

Bob used to import perfumes such as Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, DKNY etc. from the US to sell in the UK market. Those are gray imports as he does not have any distribution rights by the trade mark owner.

Last year suddenly he got Adwords disabled. Bob has a wife and one 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son who just started school.

Bob used to make a decent money with his business, however, being Adwords disabled, did not only destroy his business but also is jeopardizing the future of his family.

After Bob got Adwords disabled, he was forced to find a new job. He is working now as ‘Customer Service Representative’ for a UK tour operator. He barley makes more than $1400 after taxes. His wife stays at home to take care the 5 year old daughter. Adwords banned means they can not afford to go out for dinner, go on holiday or even own a car.

Did AdWords ban your account?
AdWords insider reveals a little-known technique on how to get your banned account back online - and how you can easily and safely open a new AdWords account.

What Adwords and Google don’t seem to understand, that their decision to ban someone changes lives for the worse. Adwords banned means people loose their businesses, their jobs and their lively-hood.

As Adwords own a virtual monopoly on online advertisement they need to introduce some kind of process to offer Adwords customer who were banned to reappeal this decision. There has to be a fair and independent entity who controls the process. Adwords disabled means to many people, their financial existence is being destroyed. It time to end this cruel and evil behavior by Google when the randomly ban Adwords accounts.
