Posted by

These updates have actually primarily focused on supplying more context to advertisers on the nature of advertisement displeasures.

Earlier this year, Google upgraded its ad destination policy, unavailable video policy, and 3-strike rule.

What’s Altering?

The brand-new page will clarify what violations would constitute an account suspension. These consist of:

  • Preventing systems
  • Collaborated misleading practices
  • Fake
  • Promotion of unauthorized pharmacies
  • Inappropriate business practices
  • Trade Sanctions offense
  • Sexually explicit material

Repeat Infractions Can Lead To Suspension

In addition to the listed infractions above, Google announced that a partner account could likewise risk suspension.

If a marketer within a partner account has actually been discovered to violate policies consistently, the account itself can be suspended. To be clear, this doesn’t suggest any offense could get an account suspended.

Google’s statement specified that if the partner account or advertiser has “consistently or mainly taken part in outright policy violations,” that would cause suspension.

Per Google’s meaning, outright violations are:

  • “An offense so major that it is illegal or poses significant harm to our users or our digital marketing ecosystem. Egregious offenses typically reflect that the advertiser’s general business does not follow Google Advertisements policies or that a person infraction is so serious that we can not run the risk of future direct exposure to our users.”

So, what can you do if that happens?

Fortunately is that the partner and advertiser can appeal account suspensions if hit with one.
