How Can Your Account be suspended?

There are several reasons why your account might be suspended. We’ve seen some clients, with expertly managed accounts, permanently lose access to AdWords. This can be devastating, especially if you’ve worked very hard to create a sound marketing campaign. Here are the common reasons why people face PPC account suspensions:

There’s Very Little Value

Google, Bing, and other search engines want your website to have value to the user. If the user clicks on the link to your page, you need to have the content that your audience needs. If you consistently fail to provide the right information, your account may get suspended.

You Might Have Malware

Sometimes, despite your efforts, you might have malware on your site or it might not be completely secure. If that happens, Google isn’t going to encourage its users to visit you. If they find that the problem persists, they’ll remove your website from the equation.

Your Site May Be Hacked

If your website is hacked into, Google, Bing, etc will not direct traffic towards you and will suspend accounts they deem unfit.

These are just three of the several reasons why your account might get suspended.
