    I have very little experience with PPC. However, the answer would seem to be, from exactly what they told you, that you need to change your content so it no longer violates their policy.

    Well changing the content might adversely affect his good organic rankings, which leads to my question..

    If you're page one organically, why worry about a paid search quality score?

    Hi Bill and Gary,

    Thank you for your reply! I want to do the google advertisement to bring more traffic.

    As I talked to google support on which content policy my page violates, then he turns the reject reason to be the business model (affiliate) and saying that if I do not change the business model, no matter how I make the change in the content, the quality score will be still 1/10.

    Did anyone have an idea to do the advertisement in google ad?

    Thanks
    -David

    I have not done much PPC. However, when I did, I always got a quality score of 4 or 5 for my affiliate pages, that is without any tweaking.

    Maybe the content on your page is resulting in the 1, not the fact that it is an affiliate page.

    I would not change your high ranking page. Instead, create a separate page for PPC, striving to satisfy all content requirements.

    Hi Cheesehead,
    Definitely I can create a separate page for PPC.

    Can you please provide more detail on what is the content requirement? please give some hint/suggestion on what should be changed on my page.

    Thank you in advance!
