Hey Guys, I rarely create new threads and ask questions on this forum because I always seem to find the answer to my questions on previous threads. This time however, I have not, so I would like to ask some stuff about our competitors bidding on our branded keywords on Adwords. I apologize in advance if this topic has already been covered elsewhere. So basically, if you do a Google search for our branded keywords, you will see our competitors ranking on the number 2 and 3 paid listing positions (as well as the sidebar paid listings). I have already put in a trademark application to Adwords and they now have made it so that nobody but us is allowed to include our company name in an Adwords ad. But how do I stop people from bidding on our keywords? It seems everyone is doing it and it's pissing me off because we're about to launch a nationwide TV commercial that is effectively going to hit over 30 million households. These people WILL do Google searches for our branded keywords and our competitors will steal them. I know this can be done because if you do a branded keyword search for American Express or Sears, you will not see anyone other then American Express or Sears ranking on the paid spots. How can I achieve the same?
