Anyone know what the current average time is for getting a new ad reviewed. I have Ads that I created more than 10 days ago and I am still not showing any impressions in the content network for their ad groups. This occured on the two client accounts I oversee.

Usally same day for me. If I do not see changes within two days, I usally call support OR go online and use the 'contact us' by chat feature and kindly explain the situation and ask them if it would be possible to push the review process on the ad in limbo.

This week's new T+Cs request you allow three business days for approval. My ads appear to take much longer on average, but they'll approve them within an hour or so if you contact support by phone/IM.

As a matter of course, if I start a campaign that I think for some reason is going to hit some approval flag, I just email them as soon as I've created it saying "I've created this campaign, please review it asap" - it's always seemed to be up the same day.

I don't understand. Aren't new ads online within a few minutes? What review is this for?

New ads go to google's own search pages immediately but for the content ads and search partner ads there needs to be a review. This also applies to existing ads that are edited. Lately its been taking a very long time for them to reviewed - sometimes as long as a week for me.

Also there are some words that automatically trigger a review just on principle - things having to do with pharmaceuticals or casinos, for example. I have a medical clinic and a casino supplies vendor amongst my client base, so I'm constantly running into delays with terms that trigger those filters.
