Update: Google has made updates to their keyword tool to prevent these keywords to be added to your campaigns despite Google not allowing you to advertiser for those campaigns.

Last night, big news came out that Facebook allows advertisers to reach Jew haters via ProPublica. It technically isn't just Facebook, anyone can try to buy keywords to target Jew Haters on Google - well, maybe.

The Facebook article said you can target 2,300 people on their social network that expressed interest in the topics of "Jew hater," "How to burn jews," or, "History of 'why jews ruin the world." Well, I was able to trigger something similar in Google's keyword planner tool in AdWords.

I was able to get keyword ideas and search volume data for "how to burn Jews" and many others like "gas the Jews." Here is the gas the Jews one:

Here is the chart showing the search volume:

Joshua Berg showed how he loaded some of these up to his AdWords campaign:

Google PR rep Anaik von der Weid responded on Twitter saying that Google will filter ads out like this in the core search results, so the ads won't run.

She did admit that the Google Keyword Planner tool likely should not be suggesting such keywords in the first place:

I personally did not try to buy any of these keywords but it will be interesting to see the response from Google on this as well.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: Here is a statement from Google on this matter:
