Ads not reviewed for one month



7:53 pm on Mar 23, 2006 (gmt 0)

I run a few very large adwords campaigns and after one of my new campaigns didn't show ads for a month I contacted google today. Their response was that the ads hadn't been reviewed yet. Ummm, it's been a month, nice job google, way to drop the ball.

Anyone else taken this long?

That's highly unusual...

Sometimes there are "complications" in reviewing an ad/keywords (such as trademarks, adult policy, etc.) which may result in the ad being sent to a specialist whose workload is heavy....

Nope, nothing to do with that. I spoke to someone today and now my ads are showing. #*$! happened?

I've had the same thing happen to me. I'll create a new adgroup, it never got reviewed and I'd have to call 4 days later and ask them to do their job - happens all the time.

Time to open a new office in India perhaps?

I believe it.
Today I woke up with an email from adwords regarding a typo in one of my ads. I wrote this add like 6 weeks ago.
I was wondering what was happening now this explains it.
I wonder now how many of my ads are still unapproved.

This has been happening quite often to me as well. I'll have new ads sit for weeks with out impressions, and will miraculously come to life with in hours of talking to my adrep.

I don't like being the squeaky wheel, but if that's the only thing that works.

a month..? That is very long. I usually end up writing to google if I dont see my ads up and running within 4 days. Usually starts up pretty soon then.

The trend though is that you have to get back in touch with them and 'prompt' them to approve ads these days it seems.
