New problems with established keywords

Two keywords I that have been using successfully suddenly are no longer triggering ads. The eligibility message on these words reads: “This keyword is not permitted to show ads in your targeted location.”

 

What is the problem and how can I fix it?

Hi Erin,

 

This is a new one for me.  I have questions though.

 

Are these the only two active keywords you have or are these just two keywords that happened to be marked this way out of a number of active keywords?  Are you currently still getting any impressions for your ads at all or is your entire account basically shut down?  Are there any other alerts in your account or have your received any emails from Google at all?

 

-Tom

Hello Erin14

In some territories Google prevents ads that advertise products prohibited by local law. This mainly applies to alcohol, adult product or medication .e.g:"In these countries, Google doesn't allow the promotion of any alcoholic beverages, including beer, cider, sake, wine, champagne, hard alcohol, and liquor"

Check Google's advertising policy for specifics, or elaborate what you are selling and in which territories, so we can refer you the relevant policy section.

Would be quite handy to know the keywords and the targeted location to be able to say more about it
