Disapproved Ads
Ads were running smoothly for 10 months

 8:49 am on Jan 9, 2009 (gmt 0)

I have a campaign and some banner ads in that campaign are running so well for ten months. I got good conversions on it and I can determine which one are my better performing ads. Then I noticed yesterday my conversions went down and when I checked my ads, I found out that Adwords disapproved some of my ads that has been running on the network for ten months and the remaining ones didn't get any impressions. I have no idea why G suddenly disapproved those ads. Anyone could tell me why?

I think only Google can answer that.

The only time I've had something like that happen was a few years ago, when I was using a term in my ad that was trademarked by another company (after my ad had been running for some time) and they presumably contacted Google about it, because suddenly my ad got disapproved.

Is there anyway Google will get the ad back online if I contact them? because I already asked them a couple of questions before and all they gave me was a link. I also noticed some impressions of my other campaigns dropped about 40-50 percent.

Are you telling us all?

Normally, when an ad gets disapproved, Google AdWords sends you an email with exact reason "why", and they even give you a "suggestion" for fixing your ad.

That is my experience with text ads, for both search and content.

Oh, and there is a tool that lists all disapproved ads within the account.

Yes, I know that there is a tool where you can see disapproved ads. But I haven't received any email from G why my banner ads were suddenly disapproved after running so good in the content network for 10 months.

Make sure you have email notification of disapprovals enabled if you want to receive email notice of such. So what is the reason for disapproval the tool shows?

If notification is enabled then don't forget to check out your spam filters. False positives are a real risk if you have fairly tight.
