Question: I am using blogger.com for my blog. And I’ve been reading a lot of blogs with so much affiliates. Now I joined affiliates and place banners and text link ads in my blog. But when I activated my google adwords to advertise my site, my ads was alwasy disapprove due to violation in landing page or advertising policies. How can I resolve that? I reviewed my site and removed all the ads but still it was disapproved. Can you help. Thanks
That is a pretty big question, and without knowing the specifics, it is hard to give a good answer, but I think I might have some insight you can use.
First, adwords are disapproved for many different reasons. The email you receive from google regarding your ads is often not very helpful, but it should provide at least a clue.
The most common reason ads are disapproved, based on what you have told us, is your pages quality score. There are a lot of ebooks floating around that talk about “adsense arbitrage.” That is, you spend money on adwords to get visitors to a page that you then have adsense (or other affiliate programs) on. While this might have worked 5-10 years ago, the rules have certainly changed, making it harder to get adwords ads approved.
When you create an adwords ad, the system now looks at the total page (and perhaps the entire site) and determines a quality score. If the quality score is too low, your ad may be disapproved, or it might cost a higher price to display the same adwords ad.
For instance, say you have setup up a blog about vacation deals. On it you have a page for “vacations in Dubai” where you list some very basic information like “Vacations in Dubai are nice. Wouldn’t you like to vacation in Dubai? Vacations in Dubai will form memories that last a lifetime.” You include a few photos of Dubai, and then surround the content with ads, affiliate programs, pay per click offers, and more.
That is going to be a very low quality score.
If you want to make real money with affiliate programs, you have to provide real content. If your blog is just a few sentences on each page, surrounded by affiliate programs, not only will you not make money, but as you have said – adwords to your site will continue to be disapproved. A blog with no substance with only affiliate programs is only one step above a Made for Adsense (MFA) site.
Follow the adwords rules and have good content on the page(s) you are doing adwords for.
