Hello AdWords ppl,

 

symbols like € can not be used as keywords even as [internet for 5 €].

we have billboards where 5€ is our trigger and a lot of ppl will look for it.

ofcourse I can write it as 5 euro, but is there chance somehow to use €?

 

Thanks,

 

Lukas

Hello again,

 

"is there chance somehow to use €?" Yes : in ad text.

 

I use prices in description too, but instead of the euro symbol I use number folowed by Eur , as it is the standard abreviation for the Euro.

 

After reading the Editorial Standards

 

https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176095?hl=en#

 

the only forbidden example provided is when the Currency is used without a numerical value, to substitute the word "price"

Ad text contains numbers and symbols that don't adhere to their true meaning. For example, the number 4 is not used in a numeric fashion, and a currency symbol cannot substitute for the word "price."

Hello, Lukas. Unfortunately you cannot use special symbols as your keywords. You can use them in text ads, of course, but not in your keywords. Sorry.

 

However, I believe "internet for 5" will trigger your ad for searches such as "internet for 5 €".
