Baidu’s verification process for ads is known for its complexity (even when speaking Chinese!).
If your website was rejected on your first application, no worries.
As a Baidu Agency, we have encounter this issue multiple times with our clients, and always helped them fix it or work around it.
Main Reasons for Rejection
- Non-compliance with Account Requirements: Baidu has strict criteria for ads. Violations, such as invalid traffic or policy breaches, can result in rejection.
- Legitimacy and Legal Sector Verification: Businesses must prove their legitimacy, often requiring government-issued IDs. Any discrepancies can lead to denial.
Understanding Baidu Ads Requirements
Baidu Ads is a dominant platform in China, similar to Google in the US. To advertise, businesses must:
- Have a valid business license.
- Comply with Baidu’s regulations, especially for specific sectors like healthcare.
- Avoid content related to drugs, explicit material, or gambling.
Solutions for Rejected Accounts
This allows only approved domains to advertise, acting as a workaround for rejections.
Improving Compliance to Requirements:
Making your account meet Baidu rules is very crucial. Here are some steps to follow:
- Check Baidu guidelines: Make sure your ads fit well with the rules. Following them can stop your account from being tossed out.
- Keep ads truthful and relevant: The ad has to match the user’s search, making it of value to them. Don’t trick them with fake data.
- Tune up the landing page: Your ad will lead people to a specific website page called a landing page. This page must also obey all rules by Baidu.
- Learn from past slip ups: Baidu had problems with its online forum keeping in line with China laws before. So it’s important for you to stay updated on current laws and stick to them carefully.
- Avoid shareholder conflicts: In the past, shareholders felt mislead by how well Baidu followed Chinese laws. To avoid such trouble, keep all practices legal and clear.
