Google Updates Display & Video 360 Account Level Suspension Policies

Posted by

Throughout the year, Google has actually made many updates and explanations to its displeasure policies.

These updates have actually mostly revolved around offering more context to marketers on the nature of ad displeasures.

Earlier this year, Google updated its advertisement location policy, not available video policy, and 3-strike guideline.

To round out the year, Google is upgrading its account-level suspensions for Show and Video 360 users in December 2022.

What’s Changing?

Google is updating the primary Displeasures and Suspensions page to have actually a page devoted to Display and Video 360 users.

The brand-new page will clarify what infractions would constitute an account suspension. These consist of:

  • Circumventing systems
  • Collaborated misleading practices
  • Fake
  • Promo of unauthorized drug stores
  • Unacceptable organization practices
  • Trade Sanctions infraction
  • Raunchy material

While the new Display and Video 360 page isn’t available yet, expect to see additional context on the offenses above to ensure you prevent them.

Repeat Infractions Can Lead To Suspension

In addition to the listed violations above, Google announced that a partner account might also run the risk of suspension.

If an advertiser within a partner account has actually been found to violate policies consistently, the account itself can be suspended. To be clear, this does not imply any violation might get an account suspended.

Google’s statement mentioned that if the partner account or advertiser has “repeatedly or mainly engaged in outright policy violations,” that would cause suspension.

Per Google’s definition, outright offenses are:

  • “An offense so severe that it is unlawful or positions considerable harm to our users or our digital marketing ecosystem. Outright violations often show that the advertiser’s total business does not comply with Google Advertisements policies or that a person infraction is so serious that we can not run the risk of future exposure to our users.”

So, what can you do if that takes place?

Fortunately is that the partner and marketer can appeal account suspensions if hit with one.


Google is constantly reviewing its advertisement and account policies and violations. Constant updates throughout the year have brought more clarity to advertisers around not just the nature of the displeasure but likewise more guidance on how to troubleshoot these offenses.

Due to the fact that Google counts on both human interaction and automation to discover violations, it’s constantly a great concept to spot-check your account for any disapprovals weekly.

As Google presents the brand-new policy page, we will update this article to consist of the link.
