Google AdWords Keyword Tool Now Clearly Showing Trademarked Keywords

Nov 5, 2008 • 8:12 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Google Ads (AdWords)

Google is now clearly showing if a keyword is trademarked or not, directly in the Google AdWords Keyword Tool.

For example, a search on "iphone" returns a little ™ symbol near the term, i.e. iphone™. Here is a picture:

™ in Google AdWords Tool

This can greatly speed up the process for advertiser who are looking to avoid trying to bid on trademarked terms. I am honestly not sure the exact details of why this was added, so these are all assumptions right now.

Hat tip to Gabs and Kasia Bauer for notifying me of this.
