My Struggle with Google Adwords Help

I created a new Google Adwords Campaign for a small client. Everything seemed to be going OK. The client wanted to run a second ad with a different offer. I duplicated my current ad, changed the offer, and then was met with a “Limited due to Trademark” restriction. I thought that was rather odd because the first ad was nearly identical to the second – and none of the words that were different were trademarked. Actually, I don’t think any of the words, even in the client’s name (the title of the ad – blurred for privacy), or the client’s web address, were trademarked. I was confused and decided to e-mail Google’s Adwords team. Here is where I’m currently at with them. I included the same screenshot included here with my e-mail. TL;DR: Just skim my short responses to get an idea of what’s happening :) Original Message Follows: ———————— From: Will Date: Tue, 1 Mar 2011 Thanks for your previous help.

Google Ads are not worth it

For the last five days I tried an GoogleAd-heavy theme for the blog.  the results? over 1000 impressions and a whopping $0.05 of profit. Conclcusion:  i think ads are really annoying to look at, and unless you’re reallying getting a huge volume of traffic on my site, it’s not worth the few bucks per year that I might gain from it.
