Microsoft has had some success: Bing is now a well-recognized name in the search scene and the company has made several key ...
How the movies have inspired creativity in advertising | Red C
When I was a kid I had a friend who lived next door whose dad was in the Territorial Army. The best thing, as far as I could see, about having a dad in the Territorial Army was that he would come home on a weekend in an old Army Land Rover… an Army Land Rover that was perfect for firing-up our boyhood imaginations. You see, this was not just any Land Rover in our eyes… it was a Nazi Land Rover! A Nazi Land Rover carrying the Ark of the Covenant to a secret lair where it would be opened in some bizarre ritual. Cue then lots of walking down the side, sliding underneath and jumping on top of this battered old vehicle as my friend ... market research, surveys and trends

Why can't I see my ad in with the ads preview tool? - AdWords Help
I set up my first ad hours ago. It shows that it is active in my campaign. I can list all the keywords and hover over the magnifying glass and it will show a checkmark that the ad is showing. It gives me a 8/10 quality score.

Of course with no one to call on the phone I have to hope that someone might know something and respond to this question. Thank you Hi PyramidImaging, ...
