Repeat Violations Can Lead To Suspension

In addition to the noted offenses above, Google revealed that a partner account could likewise run the risk of suspension.

Google’s statement specified that if the partner account or marketer has “consistently or primarily taken part in egregious policy offenses,” that would trigger suspension.

Per Google’s definition, outright offenses are:

  • “A violation so major that it is illegal or poses substantial harm to our users or our digital advertising environment. Outright violations typically reflect that the marketer’s overall company does not comply with Google Ads policies or that one infraction is so serious that we can not run the risk of future exposure to our users.”
