Hello, Steve.

 

In my own experience, search campaigns, if there are no special words in the ad text to trigger a manual review, are usually up and running in less than an hour. If there's anything that requires manual attention, it can take up to three business days.

 

The same goes for image ads. Sometimes they need about three business days to get approved.

 

If three business days are already gone and they're still not approved, you can use the help button in the right corner of your adwords account to contact support and ask them to speed up the approval, if possible.

Right now it says that I am eligible. Does that mean I am still waiting for approval?

Go to your keywords tab and hover over a speech bubble next to a keyword, it'll tell you if it displays ads.

 

Alternately, you can use the Ad Preview Tool and check if your ads are showing.
