Will ads be reviewed if they are in a campaign which is paused?

Hello,

 

I have a group of ads which are under review for about 7 days now. Can that be because they are under a campaign which is currently paused?

 

The reason it is paused is because I am moving accounts from an old one to a new one with different billing information and I just want to have it all set up correctly before actually starting paying on the new account.

 

Thanks for your time and excuse my english!

Hello Yakito,

 

My understanding is that you're about to move campaigns from one account to a new one with different billing info. Therefore your campaigns are paused. Please be advised that though paused ads may undergo reviews which may occasionally last for several days, it is not because the campaign is currently paused. For ads it's quite common to undergo various types of reviews and the process can sometimes take multiple days.

 

Best,

Lakatos

Thanks Lakatos for your time. So basically I can leave my campaign paused and my ads will eventually get reviewed?

 

Thanks!

Hello Yakito;

As for your last question: when paused ads are reviewed, they are ready to appear in a campaign,  immediately when launched, (making  them active again), without further delay (for approval). See it as "ready to use cartridge of ads".

Yes.  One consequence of that is that even when your ads are paused you need to make sure that the destination URLs they point to are working pages.  Otherwise they might get disapproved for "landing page not found" or some such.

 

The intent of this is as Moshe says: lots of advertisers like to have pre-reviewed ad campaigns sitting around waiting to activate at the right time, e.g. on the day a sale starts.
