Related policies and common disapprovals

The following Google Ads policies are especially relevant to callout extensions and are often associated with disapprovals. Learn about what happens if you violate our policies.


To maintain a professional appearance in ads, we don’t allow excessive or gimmicky repetition of words or phrases. See the Editorial policy for more information. For callout extensions, this means that the text can’t repeat within a callout or from other callouts, ad text or sitelink text within the same ad group, campaign or account. For example, a callout extension would be disapproved if ad text and ad group, campaign, or account-level callouts include the text "Free delivery".


Google may remove ads or extensions in response to trademark owner complaints. Advertisers are responsible for proper trademark use in their ad text, assets and business information. See the Trademarks policy for more information.
