Today I come back from the dentist, if that wasn’t bad enough news, I get an email from Google AdWords titled Your Google AdWords Approval Status.
In the email, all my AdWords campaigns are now disapproved, because of:
SUGGESTIONS: -> Ad Content: Please remove the following trademark from your ad: mysql.
Yeah right. I can’t put the word ‘MySQL’ in my ads. How are people to now find me? It would appear that many ads have been pulled not just mine. Is this a proactive measure by Google? is this a complaint from the MySQL trademark holder Sun Microsystems?
I’d like any comment, feedback or suggestions on how one can proceed here.
It reminds me of the days CentOS advertised itself as an “Open source provider of a popular North American Operating System”, or something of that nature.
