My ad keeps getting disapproved due to 

 

Disapproval reasons:

The URL it's trying to reach is http://starpires.com

 

I can check the response codes both via browser and automated tools and everything looks fine.

Are you sure that the destination URL is correct in your ads? No spaces? No additional http://? (It's entered automatically)

Hi Mattheaton, 

 

In relation to your query about your ads being disapproved for URL reasons, I'd check that your site will load in all browsers in all countries in a fairly quick loading time. This will hopefully resolve any problems you might be facing. If your site is loading correctly, you can then re-submit your ads and they will be re-reviewed by our specialists and will hopefully be approved. 

 

Hope that helps!

I tried another attempt to startup a Google adwords campaign today and I'm still receiving the same issue.  I can even check the server logs and verify that a 200 response code is being returned to the GoogleAd Bot and there is load time issues.

 

"GET /?source=ga1 HTTP/1.1" 200 3474 "-" "AdsBot-Google (+http://www.google.com/adsbot.html)"
