Ad Disapproved for Reason "Disapproved". Can I have more specifics?

[ Edited ]

I have had my ads disapproved, first because of a technical glitch due to robots.txt, but that has been resolved. Now it says disapproved, with the reason being "this ad has been disapproved" and "policy details" column simply saying "disapproved". So no specifics.

 

An example of a disapproved ad is:

Here is another:

Keyword is "Miami Apartments"

So I am trying to figure out what is exactly wrong here? Do I need to take off the "www."? That is the only thing I can think of, but I'd rather just get to the bottom of it...

 

Thanks!

Hi Sep,

Please remove the anchor texts from the thread. As it is a self promotion activity which is a violation of community guidelines.

Hi Sepehr,

How long ago was it that the robots.txt glitch was fixed? Could just be that AdWords hasn't seen the change yet.

Archit, thanks. I removed all links. Hope that resolves it. I had put them in only so that no one would have doubts that the ad is linking to a working url and so they could inspect if anything wrong with the resulting page. Let me know if I need to take out the text of the URL too and will gladly do it.

Matthew, thanks. It was done at least 24 hours ago. Status is still Disapproved, with policy detail of Disapproved and reason "This ad has been disapproved".

Here is the info in my robots.txt file in case that helps or if there is an issue there still that I can't see...Thanks!
