Hello,

I recently created some ads using the term "New Yorker" referring to a person from NY, not the magazine. I'm guessing Google is recognizing New Yorker as the magazine. I'm receiving the approved limited status. Anyone know how to circumvent or remedy this? Also using the word "Alliance" in my ad description is getting picked up for trademark. Anyone encounter that before or know what to do? The company I'm creating the ads for has the word Alliance in their name and I would like to use it.

Hi Ian, 

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

If your ad uses a term in a way that isn't in reference to a trademark, please use this form. Make sure to include the term in question, a screenshot of your ad, and an example ad group.

The easiest thing to do is to create another ad that does not use either of these terms, and test them both.
