Ad Disapproved

I set up an adwords campaign 2 weeks ago, this is something which i have done on a few occasions for my company. We are a draughting college where we also run a number of short courses on Autodesk products. I am aware that we cannot make use of a brand name such as Autodesk or a name of any of their products, i decided to make use of the abbreviation 'CAD' which means Computer Aided Design/draughting. This is a general term in the industry and i have seen other adverts making use of the abbreviation. For some reason my ad was disapproved, i have queried this with Google but i have not had any response. This has been ongoing for more than a week and i am getting frustrated at this point. If anyone can assist me or has any suggestions i would appreciate that.

Hi Ross,


Welcome to AdWords Community.


What do you see as the reason for disapproval?


If you don't know the exact reason, customize 'Columns' and add 'Site Policy' to the reporting view at the Ad tab. Now, you will able to see the reason for disapproval.
