Thread: Google Adwords Update

  1. #1 Google Adwords Update 
    I know several people mentioned their Google Adwords stuff stopped working. I just now got around to looking into the issue and it looks like they've updated how copyright and trademarked material it filtered. So an advertisement with the word Amazon would automatically get flagged and thus not shown. However, I've inquired with their specialist to see it subtle changes which technically change the phrase would work. So in this example "MyAmazon" would automatically flag, but technically it's not trademarked and therefore we may soon be able to use it. This would be great for compound word trademarks since we could once again have a "Drop Box" ad without violating a "Dropbox" trademark.

    +rep Thanks for the insightful update!

    Will the ads that hit this filter have some type of flag or notification on the user's end so that we know its not being shown?

    It will show up as "Approved (Limited)" and if you show the "policy details" column it will say something like "Approved (limited) Policies: Unknown policy ([Ad Name])" If you talk to customer service just be nice. Remember--Google wants you to use AdWords so they're in business to let you put your advertisement up.
