My account is being suspended?!

My account is being suspended.

I spent a long time updating key words for some of my domain names on Namedrive yesterday. Then I thought of a new IDN and went register at Moniker. But when I came back in about one hour or so, Namedrive system asked me to sign in again to access my account (I didn't sign out when I registered domain at Moniker.com). I did so, but only to find out about the suspension.

I didn't do anything that violated the parking rules of Namedrive...

Welcome to the Club. I was once suspended for three weeks from this very forum just for saying: "Thank God, I am not @#$%^&".
There are all sort of psychos out there...

I noticed you have the Google AdWords open in a tab. Are you pointing advertisements to your domains which are parked on namedrive? If so, then this is clearly against the namedrive rules.

Do you mean that I can not use the Google AdWords (keywords suggestion tool) to suggest the keywords for my (Namedrive) parking domain name ?

I mean that you can not run AdWords campaigns where you fix the target domain behind the advertisement to be your domains parked on namedrive.

Namedrive specifically prohibits this (traffic arbitrage).

I've use Google AdWords to suggest my keywords, and nothing else.


If any member of IDNforums is from Namedrive.com -
kindly tell me - what's wrong of my account?

If they ask me the same question - I really don't know how to answer, as I even do not know how to check it?!
But I do believe that NameDrive could check "where the traffic came form" from their system...

Have got NameDrive responds -

Quote:
The account was blocked due to the keywords that were being submitted.
As part of our Terms of Service, we specify that, "a keyword MUST be
relevant to the parked domain. If a user inputs false keywords to
generate higher-paid clicks, NameDrive LLC reserves the right to block
the domains, which contravene this rule and reserves the right to block
an entire account if this is done on a persistent, account-wide basis."

I do believe that all the keywords I've submit was related for each domain name...

Not many.

Most of my IDNs are Chinese, Japanese and Dingbats -

For most of the Dingbats, I use English keywords.
such as:
[✉.net] - I'm search "mail" as the keywords on Google AdWords to get more related keywords.
[∽.com] - I'm search "math" as the keywords on Google AdWords to get more related keywords.
(∽ is Mathematical Operators - REVERSED TILDE)

I know that most of you guys don't like the Dingbats,

But I'd like to know your opinions regarding if the above examples (keywords) are in violation of NameDrive rules?

look at it from an advertisers point of view.

if someone finds there way to your site, and clicks on an ad, the advertiser has to pay big G. Do you think the advertiser got value for money, when you are showing a load of "Mail" ads that have zero to do with the domain name?

This is why it is in violation of their rules - and I would guess why you got a warning.

did ND explain why they blocked your account?

From my point of view, [ ✉ ] means mail -
Yes, [ ✉ ] is a dingbat - it's a mail sign (symbol)
[ € ] is a symbol (sign) too, it's mean Euro currency
[ ؟ ] is a symbol (sign) too, it is a Arabic question mark

We could say that above 3 items all are symbol, but they are 3 different symbol, and have their own meaning

This is the only email I received from ND; I've ask them to tell me which 1 or 2 domain's keyword I submitted was not relevant to the parked domain? but they didn't answer within the past 40 hours...
