When Google Product AdWords Ads Go Wrong

Oct 20, 2009 • 8:55 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Google Ads (AdWords)

Recently, there has been a lot of discussion around Google AdWords showing product ads in a plus box (or not) in the search results. This has been going on for a while and we have several posts here on this topic. It is now, not uncommon to see this in the search results. I explained how to get these special ads over here.

In any event, last night I was doing some searches and noticed that the Google Base (not Merchant) results were not working. Here is a picture:

Google Product AdWords Error

Yes, the plus box which should show product pictures, titles and prices showed an error that read:

Error: The server could not complete your request. Try again in 30 seconds.

I've never seen this error before in this area, nor have I ever seen it reported, so I grabbed a quick screen capture.
