Notwithstanding the above, certain combinations of campaign or creative structures within these limits may overload our systems and processes thereby interfering (or attempting to interfere) with the functioning of our programs.
- Generating a large number of ad groups or campaigns with few creatives or keywords in each
- Generating responsive ads with significant combinations of creative content, assets, destinations or keywords
Note: If advertisers inadvertently cause an overload on our ads systems or processes, a notification will be issued to them with specific details at least 7 days in advance to remediate the issue. No action will be taken on the advertiser’s Google ads account prior to issuance of the warning notification.
