    Can you believe the word target can't be used in the English language and in advertising? Google are pathetic.

    It came up with a trademark warning.

    It's still in two previous ads as it only come up on the third. I used reach instead, it's not perfect English but what do yanks know about that anyway.

    Just request a manual review - and explain you're using it in natural language.

    Google has bazillions of monkeys as well as pigions.

    The word was in the actual ad not a keyword, aint all that bothered I just thought it silly. Imagine if all the other words were trademarked as well, how would you write an ad? idiots.

    That's all well and good as a keyword but not as an actual word in a sentance in an advert, it's barmy. What next, sue the Oxford Dictionary for listing it?

    I've trademarked the letter E so please refrain from using it in your posts on here from now on, or I will be forced to take action. :D
