Adult classification

HI,

 

I am selling condoms, I have made my site a non adult looking website selling condoms.

 

I am selling them on Amazon and follow strict guidelines with Amazon

 

Does this fall under the adult products which I cannot advertise with google adwords?

 

How do I get around this and get this approved?

 

Cheers

 

Louanne

No, you still can advertise with Google Adwords, but your ads will receive one of the following family status "non-family safe," or "adult." That means ads aren't allowed to show in certain countries or on certain sites that don't allow adult or mature content.

Please read more about Family status policy:

Hi Louanne,

Somebody will correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure condoms fall into category of non-family safe shelf in AdWords policy. This means you can advertise them in Google search but cannot show video or display ads. You will find more information about it here (also the list of countries where the main rules and policies are different).

 

Hope this helps!
