Adwords Doesn’t Like Inside Jokes

Online marketing information can change quickly This article is 9 years and 232 days old, and the facts and opinions contained in it may be out of date.

This is really goofy, so skip it if you don’t like the occassional cheesy inside joke be forewarned.

Story:

  • -Mr. Ploppy was used an example by someone in a WMW thread.
    I believe someone told someone else the magic command for checking if you are out of the sandbox was mr ploppy: www.yoursite.com or something to this effect.
  • -Lots of people got a good laugh out of it.
  • -Being bored at the time…I place an Adwords advertisment for Mr. Ploppy…knowing that I had searched it after reading this stupid time consuming joke and wanting others to get another chuckle from my shameless self-promotion and time consuming low brow humor.

After running the ad for over a week or so I get rejected, and yet again, this childish joke consumes some more time:

Campaign: 'ploppy,' Ad Group: 'mr-ploppy'

AD TEXT: Mr. Ploppy? Are You 12? Webmasterworld is Cool I Like Cheesy Nickel Adwords Stuntdubl.com Ad Status: Suspended - Pending Revision Ad Issue(s): Unclear/Inaccurate Ad Text ~~~~~~~~~ SUGGESTIONS: -> Ad Text: Please edit your ad text, as it is either unclear or does not accurately reflect your site content. Suggested Ad Text: Internet Marketing Advertising, Consulting, Affiliates Marketing Journal and Forum Stuntdubl.com

I thought it reflected the content of my site quite well. Sometimes goofy yet creative marketing ideas to draw more website traffic. The second description is much too professional for this site.

Thanks though Adwords guys. It is nice that you tried to write an ad for me:) Mr. Ploppy doesn’t agree with you though.

    I know this is old, but it’s hilarious to see Mr. Ploppy having a voice for himself…maybe he should guest author some posts!
