Google Ads Suspended Case Study: Circumventing System Policies #2

Problem? Circumventing System Policies

A recent client [Vaxenia] that we helped get unsuspended had no clue what the issue could be. The individual who owns had previously set up ads that were running to promote cryptocurrency exchange system from another website. The account was suspended for Circumventing System Policies, and we were fairly certain what this client had done to get cited for circumventing systems. Google states that this policy entails the following: Engaging in practices that circumvent or interfere with Google’s advertising systems and processes, or attempts to do so.”

Step 1: When working on a case like this, we have to be thorough with our investigation before we attempt to appeal the case. When it comes to cryptocurrency exchanges and the like, Google requires that your account be certified through them and comply with the local policies for your jurisdiction on financial services and/or currency exchanges before running the ads. For more information on this, you can view their policy titled About Restricted Financial Products Certification’

Step 2: For this case, Google Ads Suspended had found that the account holder had originally violated this policy by not being certified before running their ads. We then submitted an extended appeal explaining the mistake that had been made and kept in contact with the Google Policies team, following the case closely, communicating with Google and the client, and keeping track of updates. After submitting the appeal, we received a response from Google within 1 Day that stated the account had been unsuspended. 


Before running ads, you should make sure to check to see if there are any Google Policies outlining the product or services you’re offering beforehand. Being ignorant of Google Policies is not an excuse, and Google has made it clear that they will suspend accounts even if the violation was not incidental.

Is your Google Ads Account Suspended? This account is just one of the many victims in the latest overhaul of accounts in the Google Ads Network. According to this report on Search Engine Land, over 3 billion ads have been removed from Google Ads and over 5 million Google Ads Accounts have been suspended in 2021 due to the violation of Google policies. Why have so many accounts been suspended and so many ads removed?

Google Ads Policies

There are a large number of Google Policies that each advertiser advertising on Google must abide by, and there are many things that an advertiser can do to violate these policies. You can find a full list of the Google Ads Policies here. In particular, there are 3 Main policies that we’ve noticed most accounts get suspended for. Those are: Circumventing System Policies, Suspicious Payment, and Unacceptable Business Practices.

What Do We Do?

It is incredibly difficult to know exactly what policy or policies an account may have violated as Google does not provide specific information to account holders on what their account may have been suspended for. Moreover, the 3 main policies listed in the previous section are what Google will tell you your account is suspended for, but there is a whole plethora of sub-policies under these 3 policies that could be the actual reason the account is suspended. Google Ads Suspended experts are quite knowledgeable of these policies, and we make it easy for customers to pinpoint exactly where the issues lie and what to do to fix them.
