Hi David,
You might want to read Googles landing page policy guidelines.
http://adwords.google.com/support/aw/bi ... swer=46675

A couple of things that stand out to me are this...

1. affiliates that use the following types of pages:
Bridge pages: Pages that act as an intermediary, whose sole purpose is to link or redirect traffic to the parent company.
Must Provide substantial information. If your ad links to a page consisting mostly of ads or general search results (such as a directory or catalog page), it must also provide additional, unique content.

(your site does not have any other links to a main site attached.. it is just a page designed to redirect people to an affiliate offer)

2. Transparency
In order to build trust with users, your site should be explicit in three primary areas: the nature of your business; how your site interacts with a visitor's computer; and how you intend to use a visitor's personal information, if you request it. We’ve listed some tips on maximizing your site's transparency below.

Your site should:

Openly share info about your business and clearly define what your business is or does.
Distinguish sponsored links from the rest of your site content.

I would also read this post on quality scores.

Not sure if that helps but Google does what it likes and when it wants to do it.
Hope you sort it out.
Regards
Troy

yep I think the big G is cracking down on affiliates. It's happening to HEAPS of people on digitalpoint and other forums.

Sucks really, if only we could go back in time when it was easier.

You cannot post links in adwords which will redirect to other websites. If you are marketing affiliate websites, then create a squidoo lens or hub page where you are promoting the offer. Then post ad link that point to the new page you created.
