Hi, I use adwords for my products on my official site.  I also have an etsy store and they offer google adwords for their listings.  Am I able to use them too?

Hi there,

By "Am I able to use them too?" You mean run ads through your Adwords account to your etsy store? If so, it's generally advisable to only use Adwords on websites you fully control. I'd perhaps include the etsy store link on my website, but I wouldn't advertise it directly. Theoretically though, you're allowed to advertise any website so as long as this website allows using Adwords. It's your responsibility to ensure compliance though.

Hi, thanks for replying. Yes I wanted to see about using etsy's adswords too since they provide it for their sellers, but also continue using it for my official website. I wanted to make sure it is okay to do so and will make sure everything is in compliance with etsy.

I'm still not entirely sure whether you meant you'll run ads to etsy and your website through your Adwords account or that etsy will run ads for you through their Adwords account while you run ads to your website through your own Adwords account. If it's the second case, then there would be no issue in my opinion providing that your website is not just a bridge page to etsy and provides its own added value.

You can review the bridge page policy here:

Hi, I would be doing the second - running my own adwords to my website but also running etsy ads with my etsy shop. So they would be two separate adwords accounts. One by me, one by etsy.

You can target your store on  etsy , but  from / by using the same Adwords account. (By setting a separate campaign)
