Are you sure you got all 5GB for the picture uploads? Remember, you got 500MB automatically after you begin uploading, and then up to 4.5GB more (in 500mb increments) for files uploaded. So after you uploaded 500MB, you would have 1GB in extra space, etc.

Many people earlier thought it was 4.5 total and stopped uploading pictures once they got this credit.

You may want to try uploading another 500MB in pictures just to be on the safe side.
I thought so too but I have 5.92gb uploaded to "camera uploads." I'll still give it a shot.

Well Google will not lift the suspension on my Adwords account. They keep saying that either I've obtained more than one promotional credit or that I've sold or bartered my promotional credit which neither are true. I hate companies like Google who can basically do whatever they want and the customer has no recourse but to suffer with the outcome. I was trying to help a few fellow slick dealers but it looks like I'm not going to be able to now.

So, I just received this email from Google:
Quote :
Dear AdWords Advertiser,

Google maintains a high standard for the quality of our advertisements and our user experience. We have recently determined that your business maintains multiple AdWords accounts simultaneously serving ads for similar or related keywords and/or businesses.

In addition, our records indicate that some or all of these accounts were opened using promotional coupons limited to one redemption per individual or business. As a result, we have suspended your AdWords accounts and would ask that you refrain from creating additional accounts using other AdWords promotional coupons that you may already possess or obtain in the future.

Sincerely,
The Google AdWords Team
Even though I completed my campaign almost 24 hours ago and paused all activity. What a load of BS. I don't have multiple accounts, and I never used multiple promo codes. I don't see how this is in any way a violation, since I'm advertising a referral link (just like many sales people do). But, since I've already gotten about 50 referrals and didn't need the account anymore, meh.

Same thing here. At least like you I already got my referrals maxed out. I'm betting they pay more attention to this in the future and catch it alot faster.

Yeah, it would be trivial of them to simply block the url string syntax for DB referrals.

But I'm kind of curious as to WHY they would care? What's the difference between this and some sales guy trying to refer people (using his link) to a time share company? Advertising is advertising. Just because we're getting MBs instead of $$s for our commission doesn't negate that.

In any case, I decided to dispute the suspension. I see no reason why my account should be suspended, whether I need it anymore or not. I don't like their form letter reasoning based on completely false assumptions. Let's see what happens.

I agree. I also disputed it and I got this email back from them:

Thank you for your email and hope you're doing well. I see you're concerned about your account suspension and will be happy to help you.

we've reviewed your account and found that it unfortunately doesn't comply with the following promotional credit requirements:

- The promotional coupon is non-transferable and may not be sold or bartered.
- One promotional credit per customer.
- A promotional code can only be used in the territory where it's originally
distributed.

To review our promotional credit requirements, please see:
http://adwords.google.com/support...er=1396257
I emailed back saying i had not sold or bartered my coupon and I only used one credit. I bet you get the exact same email.

Probably. But it still makes no sense. The fact remains that almost all of the dropbox ads they have are referrals, and all of those referral ads are free, so they aren't competing with real PAID ads. Google gives out tons of $50-100 credits, and 99% of those are competing with companies that are paying real money for adspace. So every free coupon is costing them money in the short term, with the hope that the coupon user will see the benefits and eventually pay for those ads. In our cases, outside of DropBox (who is paying much more than we're bidding anyway), no one else is going to advertise DropBox. So whether you, or I, or any of the other thousands of people running a campaign, put up an ad, the loss of revenue from it to Google is still $0. Technically, we might actually be making them money if it increases the amount DropBox is bidding for the #1 ad space.

So again, this blockage on referral links makes no sense to me. I see no benefit to Google in them trying to regulate it.

After days of Adwords emails from Google (telling me to call them), they finally send me $100 in credit.

Too bad my campaign sucks, Max CPC=.10, 972 impressions, 1 click.

It's not necessarily wasted...just wasted for now. The cap used to be at 5GB (10 with .edu) but they raised it to 8/16. When they did, I immediately got credit for the referrals I had over the previous maximum...so if they raise it again, you'll be golden.

Nabbed my last 500mb as well. Had to upgrade again to .15 now to get it. Ended up having to upload almost 7gb of stuff to get my 5gb added.

I have been following this thread carefully.

Question please: I have windows 7 Home Prem.

I zipped up 3 files, 4GB, 1GB and 50MB of PINK FLOYD music :-)

I then renamed them to .JPG

I put them on my USB drive. Took drive out.

Put drive back in, let dropbox scan it. It found 3 files to upload.

It is now uploading and says about 25 hours.

Will i only see the upload increase when it is complete?

Did i do it right?
