An Adult classification is preventing your ad from showing.

Hi there,

 

Hoping someone here can help me out. I just redid an entire campaign for a new client of mine and I continue to get the warning message when I use the ad preview tool:

 

"An Adult classification is preventing your ad from showing."

 

I'm not sure why adwords specialists have placed our ads under adult classification category. My client is an accredited school that offers classes for pharmacy technician, medical assistant, medical office specialist, hvac technician, etc...

 

There is nothing on the our website that would be considered adult in nature.

 

Here is an example of what I'm talking about:

 

Keyword: medical assistant class

 

Your ad is not showing for the keyword "medical assistant classes" ( 2013 - San Antonio >Medical Assistant Classes )

  • An Adult classification is preventing your ad from showing.What can I do?

Not sure what we can do here. I'm really not sure why we are getting hit with this message. Oddly enough, if I use the keyword "medical assistant classes" instead of "medical assistant class" the ad will show up just fine. I'm thinking perhaps it is just a small bug or something?

 

Can anyone here shine some light on this issue for us?

 

Thanks!
