These updates have mostly focused on offering more context to advertisers on the nature of advertisement disapprovals.

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

  • Preventing systems
  • Collaborated deceptive practices
  • Fake
  • Promo of unauthorized pharmacies
  • Undesirable organization practices
  • Trade Sanctions offense

Repeat Infractions Can Result In Suspension

In addition to the noted infractions above, Google announced that a partner account might likewise run the risk of suspension.

Google’s announcement mentioned that if the partner account or marketer has “repeatedly or primarily engaged in egregious policy violations,” that would cause suspension.

Per Google’s meaning, egregious offenses are:

  • “An offense so major that it is illegal or postures substantial damage to our users or our digital marketing community. Egregious violations frequently reflect that the advertiser’s total service does not comply with Google Ads policies or that a person violation is so severe that we can not run the risk of future exposure to our users.”

So, what can you do if that happens?
