Policy notification asking you to make changes to your site
- I received a notification. What should I do next?
- I've received a notification for a site that I don't manage. What should I do?
- What happens if I don't make changes?
- What if I can’t complete the changes in a timely manner?
- I need clarification regarding the policy that my site is violating. What should I do?
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. Bear 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 problem doesn't continue to exist on other pages.
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. Find out how to authorise your sites.
Please be aware that if you do not make changes to bring your site into compliance, 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.
If you can't complete your changes and violations are still found, 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 a re-review once you’ve brought your site into compliance with policy.
