Trying to figure out why

It seems like Adcenter is disapproving more keywords after their recent launch on 5/15. I've bulk loaded via the desktop a bunch of adgroups and keywords. And all of the keywords in some adgroups have been disapproved. That wasn't happening before. They are saying the landing page is not relevent. I have some sponsored listings at the top of the landing pages... like 5-6 of them. I wonder if that could be an issue?

And does anyone know if this type of thing is an automated check or a manual check? I know they have automated.

Check there isn't a syntax problem in the links you are using?

I am dealing with a similar issue. They are saying that our keywords are disapproved (across the board) because the content is inappropriate. What happened in my case is that the keywords are flagged and queued for manual review.

I am suipposed to have all of my keywords approved in a day or so, but it does get frustrating. I have had this happen recently, but in the past as well. I could understand if there was truly inappropriate content, but what we sell is not bad at all. It has been on Oprah, NBC, ABC etc...I think the manual reviewers (in my case) are passing their moral judgement on our ads because it is a controversial product that everyone seems to have an opinion about.
