Why do my adwords ads show up in Google but not Ask
mine and 1 other guys don't show up on both.

I just did a search for a term that I bid on in adwords on ask.com and my ad does not show up. It shows the same ads as Google.com for the same search but my ad which is number one on Google does not show up at all. If it was just me that would be one thing but the guy that should be 5th does not show up as well. The guy that is 6th shows up. It is weird to have the same results as Google but without the 1st and 5th ads. Anybody know why this could happen.

3 possible reasons.

1, Have you requested Google to show your ads on partner network, or rather have you opted out?

2, Are your ads hitting a high enough CTR to be passed over to the partner network.

3, Have your ads been editorially approved, which is the case before passing across the network?

Most of my ads have been around for a long time. I have one ad that is in ask but not in Google. Google says that ad is not getting enough click through and is disabled. All my other ads seem to be doing fine on both Google and Ask.

1. Done
2. How do you know this
3. My ads have been approved and have been around for a while.

We get tons of hits from Google every day for this catagory. Just none from Ask because the ad is not there.

Ok the answer is if you make any change to a google ad it will dissapear off of partner sites until they are approved. It seems to me they should stay like the old ads until they are approved not dissapear. That is stupid.

Google will let you get away with alot when it comes to adwords on their own system, which is approved by bots. As Shak said, before the adds are approved for cross network visibility they have to be approved by a human, whom will look at them with a lot stricter criteria for the approval of the add onto partnered systems.

I understand that now. My only beef now is that while the edited ads are in the aproval process why can't the old approved ads stay there outside Google.
