Ads or account disabled

Policy notification asking you to make changes to your site

I received a notification. What should I do next?

The notification you received should contain details regarding the policy issue and an example page on which we found the issue. Please read the notification carefully and make any appropriate changes to your site to resolve the issue. Sometimes it can be resolved by removing violating content or removing Google ads from those pages. In other cases, it may require changing the implementation of your ads. Keep in mind that the example page that we provide is just an example, and you should review your entire site to ensure that the same issue doesn't continue to exist on other pages.

I've received a notification for a site that I don't manage. What should I do?

If you're concerned about malicious use of your ad code by others, then we recommend that you use the site authorisation feature. Site authorisation is an optional feature that allows you to identify only specific sites that are permitted to use your Google ad code. Learn how to authorise your sites.

What happens if I don't make changes within three days?

Please be aware that if you do not make changes to bring your site into compliance within three days, ad serving will be disabled to your site.

If you missed the deadline and ad serving has already been disabled to your site, please make the appropriate changes and then contact us for reconsideration.

What if I need more than three days to complete the changes?

We are unable to grant additional time for you to make changes. If you can't complete your changes within three days, ad serving will be disabled to your site. However, even though ad serving will be disabled, you may continue to update your site and contact us for reconsideration after your changes are complete.
