IDN Display URL in Adsense Campaigns

Anybody know when this will be available? Has there been any talk on the blogs or anything? It's pretty damned disappointing to try to run an ad campaign for an IDN site with punycode as the Display URL.

Re: IDN Display URL in Adsense Campaigns

I've already notified them of this problem. No idea what the status is though. Pretty sad they can't get it working.

They obviously feel the need to compete with Microsoft in the Ineptitude Stakes!

Or with my ISP, which is one of the largest in Finland. I mailed them a few weeks ago about adding IDN support into their webmail and they flat out refused. Kind of odd when you consider that very many Finnish last names contain ä and ö.

Gmail doesn't support IDN, either.

Latins have no problem. I've never tried with other scripts, though.

ö worked on a German domain for me s has ő in a Hungarian name. This was over the summer. I had to wait for a manual review, since the display URL is differnt than the linked URL, and I just explained in the form that it's an IDN with a brief intro of the topic. They even let me use the domainname.tld as the headline, which I later found out was against TOS.

They may find themselves out of touch with the changing realities of the internet very soon.
Might cost them a lot of customers to their competitors in a very short period of time.

I don't know .. Maybe new customers but old customers would be unlikely to change their email address to the correct form if they have had the address for more than a week, unless providers insist they adopt the correct spelling which would be unlikely.

Re: IDN Display URL in Adsense Campaigns

I just got a response back from my support request:

Quote:
I confirmed with senior members of our technical and policy teams that currently we are unable to approve ads with vanity URL's.

I'm not kidding you, this is what their senior staff thinks about IDNs.
