Why is it taking so long to approve my ad. Its been over a week?

??? It's a pretty simple ad for a montessori school..."opening soon" visit our website. Wouldn't think it would take an engineer to aprove it but this is our first ad. I can say that I'm pretty frustrated in that everyday that goes by our enrollment list remains the same (which is zero). Everyday we don't advertising is a potential missed opportunity. 3 days would have been acceptable for approval but not all week for a simple ad in my opinion.

If your ads have not been approved in a week - it's unlikely they will be.

 

The initial flagging is done by the robots and sometimes it's as if the ads get stuck in a loop.

 

You need to call your local Google office and ask them to manually review the ads.

 

Both Segey and Brin went to Montessori schools - I don't imagine there will be a problem!
