•  Email lists that are not opt-in
•  Bulk email software
•  Bulk messaging

— from the Google AdWords terms of service

Google presents what appear to be straightforward rules on what they don’t want to see in their cash cow AdWords product. Security firm F-Secure found the reality a little different than what Google suggests.

      I think that is a really stupid product to buy because google doenst give free clicks except to adwords pro users. You can qualify simply and get credits based on how much you SPEND!

    “…links leading to doorway pages that were just lists of affiliate links to other companies. Such pages usually run afoul of Google’s webmaster guidelines, and in doing so are supposed to be prohibited in AdWords.”

    Gosh, I’d have never guessed that Google tries to prevent such advertisers. So many of the ads running down right side of Google pages are for such sites that I ignore ads placed there altogether. Get into one of them and you can continue clicking til your finger falls off before finding a single real website. Didn’t used to be that way.
