Still An AdWords Ad With No Title

I still have no idea how this is possible, but there is an ad that does not have a title, and is therefore not clickable.

Either it's a one-off Google glitch, or a way of getting free ads on Google (albeit unclickable).

It is from a USA search for:
kaplan

i see it, they must have something wrong with their entered ad text and adwords isn't picking it up. they're doing direct-to-merchant ppc with a linkshare affiliate redirect, but the link isn't the problem.

AWA - yep, search for kaplan in the usa and you'll see it, it's google ad id is:

Hmmm - I'll have the tech folks take a look. Thanks for the heads-up. ;)

I have noticed this too. It seems to be automatically appended according to searchers IP location and does not seem to be triggered by location specific keywords.

For example, when I was in Dublin last, a search for "Blog" had two results with Dublin below the ad.

If anyone could point me(us) in the direction of more information regarding this I would be very grateful.

They've had this for over 2 years, I think. Check out this thread, including the link AWA posted in it:

Rehan, you're a star. It's hard to search for something when you don't know what it's called :)
