Circumventing Suspension in Google Ads

October 23, 2019

Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords) account suspension issues when you create ads and manage ads can be very frustrating but we’re here to help. One of the most common account suspensions happens when Google flags your account for an attempt to circumvent. This is based on Google Ads Circumventing Systems Policy.

Most circumventing systems violations can be frustrating but suspensions can be easily resolved by just correcting the offending issue. Click here for a link to the most common suspension reasons.

However, if your account “violated the circumventing systems policy,” then you’ll have to go back to your original suspended account.

To avoid getting flagged as circumventing systems, do not remove or close a suspended Ads account, and don’t create additional accounts for the same advertiser or business entity, as these are possible signs of circumventing systems.

If your account is still suspended after making adjustments to comply with Google policy, or if you think your account was suspended in error, then we recommend filling out this form to submit an appeal and have your account reviewed by Google.

Unfortunately, some suspensions are permanent and if you try to create new Google Ads accounts, those too will be subjected to the same suspension.

Circumventing systems violations can be frustrating, but if you’re having any issues with your Google Ads accounts including suspensions or issues with other campaign settings, drop us a line, we’d be happy to help.
