Waiting Over 10 Days For Image Ads Approval On G WTF?

by Christian Fox 15 replies
How can anyone try to get anything done when it takes going on 2 weeks to get ads approved?

AGGRAVATING!

Is this typical?

Going to be a joy to test new ads also.... Grrrrr

    could that be the polite way google declines ad? :-) maybe image ad just not as profitable and google does not have enough resource allocated to it.. strange...

      I am waiting on about 53,000 ads to get approved all sizes and many different designs. There is no way they can all be denied. As far as I know my accounts are all in good standing. I have other campaigns running and have never received as much as a warning.

      I have dreams about someone stomping Google I hate dealing with them that much.

      Seriously...

      You would think they could at the very least give an estimated waiting time, or a simple we are experiencing delays. Nope, they could CARE LESS and it is sooooo obvious.

      I hope someone takes their monopoly down.

      Yahoo is a pleasure to work with but their content network really sucks. I wish they could get their act together, the world is waiting.

      I have all of my ads in every size they offer, they have spots trust me. I raised my daily budget and bid also because I have heard they wont take you seriously if you are not willing to spend a bit. No help, nothing works with them.

      I have Adwords digger looking for sites for placement as I type this. I'll do it myself and they won't get a cent.

    It's looking that way, I am at 5 weeks now...

    I have tried contacting them 5 times. I can never see a rep available for the chat session. Is that what you are talking about?

    maybe it has something to do with your advertising budget? just a guess...

    That's a good guess, I raised it a month ago.

    According to Perry Marshall anything over 50$/day is good. I am at 65$

      Christian I emailed them when I ran a banner campaign in Dec and my ads were approved very quickly... my reply email from them basically said "your ads are now live."
