Important Reminder: Prohibited Adword Campaigns

March 10th, 2009

We know of a guy who found a product he absolutely KNEW would be a big seller, and all he had to do was use Adwords, he just KNEW it. He acquired the product, wrote a business plan, set up his company, and – then – he found out it was against Google’s policy to advertise the product.  Important to keep this in mind. Check out Google’s Content Policy.  Among the prohibited items: academic aids (i.e., test-taking services), aids to pass drug tests, fireworks, miracle cures, tobacco and cigarettes, traffic devices (i.e., radar jammers), and weapons. Some items have restrictions, such as prescription  drugs, alcohol, and gambling (prohibited outside of Great Britian, Italy, France, and Spain.)
Are there ways around it? Sure, SEO for one (see this post). You could also try some other search engines or content advertising services that cater to specific categories, i.e. adult. But you’ll likely find many of the same prohibitions.  As you can see,  most of the restrictions have to do with existing laws and regulations, and you would have problems promoting such an item anywhere. Bottomline, plan your campaign all the way through before you dive in prematurely.
