Ad Copy issue

Hi,

 

While searching for my brand name on Google, I witnessed a strange thing. I saw an ad copy which is not in my ad account. In fact, it never was. I am totally confused as to what has happened. Is Google automatically generating an ad copy? Why would it do so? Please help.

Hi,

 

Do you have an affiliate advertising program setup? Sometimes affiliates will bid on brand keywords in paid search to drive high converting traffic to your site. I would try clicking the ad and investigating the redirect and eventual landing URLs for any clues as to who is responsible for the ad.

Double check the account. Historically, I recall similar cases, and at the end, the ad was found, and had been created by someone else with an access to the account.
