Hello Dana P, 

 

I ask because I feel you are trying to do something for Google My Business, and if that is the case you should post you Question "Here" on the Google My Business Forum.

When setting up Google Ad Words, we are asked  "What product or service do you want to advertise?"

It will not recognize 'sandpoint installations'.

if this is for an express-account -- the business-product-or-service chosen
mainly helps google determine which search-phrases are associated with
the created advertising.

 

simply select a business-category that is as accurate and specific as possible.

 

also, after a product-or-service category has been selected,
google will allow for additional, preselected, ad targeting --
e.g.
well drilling contractor --
agricultural drilling

 

if there are multiple areas that may cover a specific business,
express-accounts allow the creation of multiple, related, ads
by selecting additional categories and targeting;
e.g.
drilling contractor --
geotechnical drilling

 

typically, if an exact product or service is not recognized,

this may indicate there is not enough statistically significant

search data, for google to pursue a suitable advertising

audience, for any relevant, related, search-terms.

 

also, if the exact product or service is not recognized,
suggestions may be given directly to google here --
https://support.google.com/adwords/express/contact/feedback_keywords

 

otherwise, if more exact targeting is wanted, a full ad-account may be required;
however, while full-accounts allow for far more control, there are much more
details to tackle and usually a greater chance of missteps and miscalculations.
