I am new to AdWords and just set up my account over the weekend.   All of my Keywords say "Pending Review".   How long does this process take?

Hi Bruce,


That is not typical and maybe happening to you due to listing some sensitive keywords. When this is the case your keywords are likely to undergo manual review in which case the length of the process mainly depends on the queue.
