Google doesn't like security sites!

Posted by Xavier Ashe on July 27, 2006

I decided to create some Google Ads to drive some addtional traffic to the site.  After a few days of the ads running, Google suspended my account.

Hello,

Thank you for advertising with Google AdWords. After reviewing your account, we've found that one or more of your ads or keywords does not meet our guidelines. You can see your disapproved ad(s), the reason for disapproval, and editorial suggestions, from the Disapproved Ads page within your account.

Wells that's not very nice.  I logged on to my Google AdWord account and found out the following:

At this time, Google policy does not permit the advertisement of websites that contain “hacking or cracking”. As noted in our advertising terms and conditions, we reserve the right to exercise editorial discretion when it comes to the advertising we accept on our site.

Has anyone else had problems like this?
