Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Every ad I create is going under review. Is this normal? It's been about three days now for the first one and it is still under review and won't run. I'm thankful I had one running from about a year ago that I can "use" till then.
By the way, it is an old account, haven't used it in about a year or so though.
It's an old account too, not a new one, very frustrating considering I can't get anything approved (on legitimate ads too).
Google has been cracking down LOADS on affiliates of late so I wouldn't be surprised if they're manually reviewing a lot more ads at the moment - leading to a delay in a lot of other cases... (It'll probably get better when this big push to net affiliates winds down)
I don't have a problem with the need to review ads but I have a big problem with the system giving me false information. Surely "active" and "under review" are mutually exclusive states.
I get the reverse more often than not these days. I create a new ad with just one word different and it goes "under review". Content network ads seem to stay there longer too.
