Since a few days more and more IT Soft- and Hardware providers in Germany experience that their ads (some running successfully for years) get now rejected. Reason: "Third-party consumer technical support".
Obviously it is a bot that switches off one ad after the other.
Thousands of small and medium scale companies are hit by this change in policy.
Google support states that there is a conflict between manufacturers and third party technical support providers. And Google does not want to lose all customer in this industry. There will be new policies on this issue. However, for the time being, it seems the globally oparating bot rejects all ads that he finds. So the repair von smartphones, IT-hardware any many other related service can no longer be advertised in Google Ads.
Does someone notice such a trend in other countries?
