PoF Ads Approvals - Approved, Declined, A Lucky Dip???

9 replies
Anyone else seeing completely random creatives getting declined at PoF and zero consistency across approvals?

Seems to be getting worse letely.

I'm now seeing 'head shots' declined due to 'Inappropriate Image: incorrect size, excessively large/unnatural breasts, buttocks focused, lingerie, bikini indoors, actual soldier or member of POF'. These are images that have been approved for many campaigns before and there's no breasts or buttocks in the shot ???

I'm also starting to see this one now 'Prohibited Content: Ad text contains sexual content, 100% Free, "plenty of", Obey, references POF, references the person in the creative, suggests extra-marital dating or promotes alcohol/drug use'. Latest one, the offer was Be2.com with the same copy I have used on 10 campaigns in the month. In fact the same image, copy and offer had been approved not 15 minutes earlier ??? (I was resubmitting as I had to change a keyword in the dest URL due to a typo on my part ... that was the only change???)

Even the guidelines on Ben's blog are no help ... do exactly what he says and things still get declined (or approved if you are lucky???).

Interested to hear if anyone else is getting this (or if it's just me and my account is on some shit list that they look at a bit closer...)

I'm trying to work within their rules, but the rules seem to change every time I hit submit...

    Hey Mick,

    It's not just you, I have the same issue. If you know your creatives are compliant, just re-submit. 2 or 3rd time's the charm lol.

    It's a pain resubmitting but at least you don't need to worry so much about account bans.

    Same issue here, but I need to think of a better way to advertise on POF because I lost around 50$ with no conversions at all with around 200k impressions.

    Live persons audit the ads, so, one person might like it, another person doesn't.

    Did you know that it's been proven that people typically can't agree on anything?

    You're seeing that in action here.
