The Automatic Response

Your keyword list appears to contain pharmacy-related content. Google policy requires online pharmacies* in the U.S. to be accredited by the National Association Boards of Pharmacy. Additionally, these pharmacies may only target ads to users in the country in which they are accredited.


The AdWords program is only open to pharmacies based in the U.S. or Canada. Google policy does not allow AdWords ads for prescription drugs to be displayed in other countries.


For more information about the National Association Boards of Pharmacy, please visit


*Pharmaceutical manufacturers cannot advertise pharmaceutical drug branded campaigns, websites or keywords outside of the U.S. and Canada. This is also true for informational campaigns targeting physicians exclusively. Please update your location targeting settings to target the U.S. or Canada only. 


Thanks for your help.

Hello and Welcome;

LOLLL Smiley Happy a nice case;

The Google bot checking the ads considers you as a pharmaceutical drugs seller. (Not allowed by the policy) Smiley Happy

Please share with us your website URL and the ad-copy (the text of the ad) you want to advertise.
