Access to AdWords in China

I am visiting Guangzhou, China during the holidays and I was curious if anyone has ever tried to access their Google accounts from there? I know they block a lot of western sites and have had a strange relationship with Google in the past but unsure if things have changed.

Hello! I was able to setup a VPN and access it that way. I didn't try without the VPN.

Hi @Alex L,

 

Curious about the question you posted, I found a help page for you where you can ask for information about your query.

 

https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/8206?hl=zh-Hans

"Call 400-810-0838 (mobile) or 800-990-9020 (landline) to communicate with the Google ads team. Our hours are:

Monday to Thursday from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm (Beijing time); Friday 9:30 am - 4:00 pm (Beijing time)."

 

The page is in Chinese but you can switch to English at the bottom. The fact that AdWords has a contact phone number in China makes me think you'll be able to access your account from there.

 

My 2 cents.

 

Best,

Lakatos

Thanks for the info @Lakatos! I called the 800 number and it's disconnected. I also looked up the Google China My Business and it has a "Do you own this business" prompt haha. 

 

Our Google rep said you can access all products anywhere in the world and then I sent her a list of banned websites in China and her response was "I guess I learned something new today!"

AdWords in Chinese operates from Hong Kong.

Try to post on AdWords Chinese help forum.

. How did you go? I want to book a working holiday in China next year but want to make sure I can access my clients campaigns during that time. Did you have any issues?
