Google Holiday Shopping Ads in March?

Today while in my Gmaill account I spotted an Adwords ad from Google for its holiday shopping products.

The Google Ad reads:

Tip from Google: Check out this seasons top gifts and save with exclusive discounts.

Apparently whoever was in charge of running this particular ad campaign for Google forgot to shut it down after the holiday shopping season ended – 60+ days ago.

Curious Gmail account holders who see this particular ad like I did will find the ad’s broken link routes them to a non-existent Google search results page.

As a rule, Google eventually finds ads with broken links and suspends the ad until the advertiser can fix or replace the faulty link.

I guess this hasn’t yet happened with this particular Google ad.
