AdWords: IDN support

I contacted Google regarding IDN support in AdWords ads
and received a reply from the Dutch Adwords department where they
mentioned that there are no plans to support IDN characters in Google AdWords ads.

************** Response from Google n Dutch *****************
Er zijn geen plannen wat IDN karakters betreft met Google AdWords advertenties. U kunt het antwoord in het Engels lezen op het forum:

Re: AdWords: IDN support

This makes no sense, it has worked in the past.

I still have a campaign in my Adwords account that's been paused since August 2007 with ő in the domain, in green, right where it should be. If I can find an active advertiser I'll rebuild the site and try to reactivate the ad campaign stealthily.

Interesting, clipper.
I tried to activate an ad for ő.com (as test; idn is not mine). it is rejected.

They dont think they can make enough money to make it worthwhile for them

IIRC, when I initially set up the ad, they did reject it and I appealed, so they did have to review it and make a determination on its validity, which could be costly. Interestingly, the ad I ran also violates another AW policy, since the title of the ad is also the domain name.

I see. I wasn't persistent enough; tried just two times to appeal
