Can anyone tell me why this is not acceptable grammar or spelling? Why would I get this email if I was recieving impressions etc? This is rediculous.

Hi Offbeatbryce,

 

Clearly, there is an issue with the intended inappropriate language you have chosen to use in your ads and that indeed is a violation.  Google's review systems (both automated and human) are smart enough to understand what you have going on here.  I bet if you change it to 'stuff' - you ad will get approved.

 

From this policy page "Google AdWords doesn't allow ads or display URLs that contain inappropriate language. This also includes variations and misspellings of inappropriate language. "

Google will often allow ads to run as or before they happen to review them.  I think in this case, this may be what happened, or someone may have reported them as inappropriate.  Google will also, at any time, review accounts and report back any violations.

 

I bet if you clean up your ads, you'll be back up and running in no time.

Hi,

 

On first view, I think it is due to the use of the inappropriate word in your ad text. As mentioned by PPCBossman, this is something Google does not allow and will disapprove all ads that contain such words.

 

You are probably receving impressions because you have multiple ads in the account? Or these might be from before the ad was suspended.

 

I'd recommend that you go through Google's ad policies before proceeding further: Grammar & Spelling 

 

Regards,

Nikhil

But there is no language I bleeped it out instead of **bleep** I wrote Sh t with a space. I'm confsued. Plus this was a video response to another video with the same title and that one was used as an ad fine.
