Thomas shared a screen shot with me on Twitter of emojis showing up in the Google AdWords ads on Google Germany for a query on [autohaus mainz]. I was finally able to replicate it and I do see emojis cars in one of the AdWords ads titles.
Here is the screen shot that I was able to replicate:
We've seen emojis in Google Shopping ads and they did officially return to Google's web search results for emoji relevant queries but in the AdWords titles for non emoji relevant queries? This might be a bug or loophole.
It did take me a while to replicate.
Have you seen emojis in AdWords recently?
