I find the AdWords Guidelines a bit confusing.
Is it allowed to use Capitalization in all Your Words in Your AdWords Ad? Like: Widgets For Sale
Low Priced Widgets! Check Out The Deals Now!
or you have to write: Widgets for sale
Low priced widgets! Check out the deals now!,
As your ad has to be gramatically correct to comply with the AdWords Guidelines.

It is fine to use Caps for the first letter your words. So "Widgets For Sale" is fine but not "WIDGETS FOR SALE".

Also, that ad you use as an example would not be approved because it has two exclamation points. You are allowed a maximum of one.

qwer, it sounds as if you probably already know this - but just in case, for a rundown of the the Guidelines, it is well worth spending a few minutes with this page:

Google AdWords Editorial Guidelines
[adwords.google.com...]

AWA

PS - I seem to have caught a bug, and am heading home shortly so that I don't get the rest of the team sick. Back tomorrow, with luck.

Yes, I know that it is allowed to use capitalization of your words in the title, but I was asking about using them in all the text, like:
Widgets for sale
Low Priced Widgets!
Check out the deals now!
I was reading the AdWords Guidelines, but they are a bit confusing about that.

I capitalize every word in the title and both lines of text except prepositions and articles and have never had an ad rejected on that basis.
