    Hi Everyone,

    I have been trying to market a product I have developed to help people gain followers on Twitter, but have been having a lot of difficulty getting any ad's to show up on Google Adwords.

    It doesn't seem like any ad's show up when you search terms like 'Twitter followers', 'Get more followers', 'Gain followers'. Would this be because of Google's policy towards trademarks, i.e. nothing to do with Twitter, or that would contain the word 'Twitter' in the ad would show up? Or could this be caused by something else?

    Thanks,
    Casey

    Problem is using those brand names, Google are getting sued over and over, so they just wont allow such brand names (some may slip under their nose though). On top of that, most advertisers who use these brand names, use it for selling FB likes, followers etc with cloaking, so, Google are even more afraid of lawsuits

    As per their Brand policy you cannot use any brand terms in your ad tests , display URL or description.. You are free to target any keywords you like let it be twitter itself but you CANNOT have the brand name in the ad text anywhere.. Simple as that.. while small brands don't care or don't notice that's not the case with big pops..


    Well that's about your question of brand advertising..

    As far as selling facebook and twitter followers are concerned, that violates their another policy.
