Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Funny thing is that the other makes did not get flagged. But when I raised my bid on Lexus, it got re-reviewed and then suspended itself. I see other people running ads with makes and models in the text. What are they doing special? Why won't Google let an authorized dealer use the make and models in their ads?
Thanks for your help.
For some reason, our Toyota ad is getting flagged by Google for trademark violation. I filed an exception noting that the advertiser is an authorised dealer of Toyota, but I just get robotic responses that say it is denied. Any help here?
Possibly Toyota is the one who complained.
I am not certain of the status of the particular trademark mentioned here. As a general principle, however, if a trademark owner has formally requested that their trademark not be used by others in their ads, then requesting an 'exception' from Google will not get the job done.
Instead, the advertiser would need to contact the trademark owner and request that they send written confirmation to Google, stating that the particular advertiser in question is excepted from the limitations that the trademark owner had previously (and formally) requested.
What were they doing from so many months... That they didn't watched.
