How to report content policy violations?

Hi all,

 

 

So this is not about ads, but about the actual content of a website that advertises with AdWords.

 

If a website's content doesn't respect AdWords policies what is the recommended way to report it? The sites in question are not in English.

 

 

Thank you,

Razvan M.

This still falls under the category of ads violation. Choose the third option "Violating other AdWords policies".

Hi Ahmed,


I know about that form, this is why I mentioned that this is about site's content and not about the Ad Copy.


Thank you,

Razvan,

That's the right link. You'll have to select 'This is violating other AdWords policies' and select the policy in violation to submit your feedback.

I cannot make more clear than that: that AD is ok, I do NOT wish to report an AD.

This page is for reporting ads:

https://support.google.com/adwords/troubleshooter/4578507?rd=1

It says right on the title "Feedback on AdWords Ads".


Thank you

I see now ... this is just confusing. It may be more than confusing, it may be wrong. Makes no sense to report Ads when the problem is not there.

There should have been a page for reporting content issues.

I know that you are trying to help, I appreciate your time, but what about reporting "Businesses advertising in Adwords"? What is this for?


Thank you,
Razvan M.

As said in my colleagues' replies: this is the correct link. Both pointed to the option "option "Violating other AdWords policies". - Which you should use.
