Hi there guys,

 

I'm having a bit of a nightmare atm.  Google adwords will not let me have the word "paintball" in my add and there are loads of adds with paintball in them on the web as show below

Hello all,

 

Having an issue today I own a paintball site in the uk and am trying to advertise it.  For some reason google adword will not let me include the word "paintball" but all my competitors have if on their ads?

 

as shown here

I could see how Google would automatically decline "paintball gun" in the ads, and it seems like the examples cited specifically refrain from using "gun" in the ad content. However, there are clearly gun ad extensions... So that doesn't seem to make much sense.

 

What is the specific issue you are having? Can you not save/post the ads, or have you gotten a disapproval notice?
