Hi Guys


I have a question about html5 banner, I wanted to know if there is an issue running this banner


I wanted to create a banner that will have a responsive search bar inside that people could search a specific quarry and get the relevant search result for his quarry.


For example :


I'm targeting the education nitch and i want to create an image that will include inside search bar(google/bing/yahoo) that my audience will be able to enter a specific search quarry that will refer the user to relevant search ads

Can i do that? would it stand with Adwords policy?

Hi @Kobi C,


No, I do not think it would be approved. For starters, your ad has to 150 KB or smaller. And image ads are not interactive search scripts, they are image ads. 


You can read up on some more requirements below and learn more here.


Content requirements

Graphical layout
Ads must take up the entire space of the image size you've chosen, and they can't appear sideways or upside down. Ads can't be segmented, contain multiple copies of itself within the ad, or appear to be more than one ad. Google also doesn't allow ads that expand beyond the frame or otherwise encroach on the website or app.

Note that in each image ad, we include a small informational graphic overlay. We will not resize your image to accommodate this element. Your ad should always be submitted in the full original format size and take this overlay element into account. If the ad you submit is resized in advance, there may be extra white space visible when your ad is displayed. You can preview how your ad will appear with this overlay during the ad creation process when creating a standard image ad or a template image ad in the Ad gallery.

Relevance and quality
Image ads must be relevant to the advertised site or app. Ad images must be clear and recognizable, with legible text. We don't allow unclear, blurry, or unrecognizable images to be used in ads.

Strobing and flashing
Google doesn't allow strobing, flashing, or otherwise distracting ads.

Mimicking site content, news articles, or text ads
Google doesn't allow ads that mimic publisher content or layout, or news articles and features. Ads may also not contain screenshots of Google AdWords text ads or otherwise simulate an AdWords text ad in any way.

Family status
Google assigns a family status to all ads to make sure that ads are shown to an appropriate audience. Image ads and the content they point to must be "family safe." Any image ads and their associated websites or apps cannot contain "non-family" or "adult" content.


Kind Regards,
