Dear Sirs,

I would like to point out an advert which is in breach of your guidelines. This advert can be found by running a query for "popup Ads". Your editorial Guidelines are here:

https://adwords.google.co.uk/select/guidelines.html

Your guidelines are broken into two sections:

* Clearly and accurately describe your site.
* Emphasise the unique benefits of your product or service.

The advert I'm referring to clearly violates the second as the company in question does not sell popup ads, yet it proclaims to sell enhanced ones in the Ad title. Thus the Ad also violates the following editorial guidelines:

1. Your ad text and keywords must directly relate to the content on the landing page for your ad.
2. Use specific keywords that accurately reflect your site. (the add is targetting [popup] as the query [ads] does not show the advert in question. Once again the site in question does not provide popups.
3. The word "Enhanced" is used in the ad as a superlative. Superlatives violate your guidelines.
