Hi All,

          I'm Sam and running my adwords UK campaign for last 5 years.

My question is about on Trademark term & Policy.

 

ASDA is Trademark term but sarch "asda life insurance" then you will see more advertisers with that ASDA term words.

 

My ASDA Life Insurance Ads is more than 5 days for that Trademark Term ( ASDA ) Under Review.

 

If anyone has an idea please solve my Issues.

 

P.S. - I've not edited my ads for last 5 days & not any capitalization issues.

Hello sem;

ASDA is a trade name; You need to file for authorization to use it in the ad-text;

 

" Advertisers can use a trademarked term within ad text if they are authorized, meaning that the trademark owner sent Google the necessary form allowing an advertiser's particular account to use a certain term."

@sem

You can use ASDA as a trade name in the ad text only by getting authorization. This is the only "track" available .

 

Note: using the trade-name as a keyword is a different issue; My answer is about using a keyword in the ad text;
