Google’s six guidelines should be used to create an ad that’s accurate, to-the-point, and engaging.

  2. Include prices, promotions, and exclusives
  3. Tell your customers what they can do
  4. Include at least one of your keywords in your ad text
  5. Match your ad to your landing page
  6. Experiment
Ensure that the ads meet the editorial guidelines provided by Google or they will not be displayed!  Just ONE violation can get your account suspended.  When in doubt check the full list of Google’s Editorial Policies.
