Pending Campaign's Ads review

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

Does Google review ads of a Pending Campaign?

I have set up my campaing to start on January 6 2016 and I have already created all of my ads.

I just want to make sure that my campaign will indeed start on Jan 6 and all of my ads will already have passed the review process.

 

Thank you!

Hi Spyros,

They will indeed be reviewed as far as possible. There are certain issues that will not show until the campaign is live (such as 404 landing pages etc). But it will go live when set to go live as paused ads are reviewed just as active ads.

Hope this helps

Hi Spyros,

Your ads will be reviewed even if they are paused.

Hi Clynton,

So does it mean that we can't know if Ads are reviewed before the campaign starts?

I tried to change the campaign date to ''today'' in order to check if the ads were eligible. It's the case, they are but now I can't change back the campaign starting date... Finally, I've paused this campaign and will have to turn it on manually on the campaign starting date...

That's very annoying to be in the unknown when we upload new pending campaign (especially for Image Ads) and not being able to change back the planning parameters.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Cheers,

Hi Edgar,

Most of the time, the ads get reviewed within a while when you create them. Though the actual status is shown when you enable them.

And once if you have set the start date for today and the setting have been saved then you can not change the start date. This is because the campaign has been already started. The only option is manually enabling/pausing it or using any automated Rule.

Thank you for your reply.
Knowing if Ads are approved before the campaign starting date could be a great feature! Smiley Happy

No, Ads never show the approved status until you enable them.
