approved ads need another approval

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have some banner ads approved.

When I want to move them from one

ad group to another, they have

"pending approval" status again.

 

Is there a way to avoid that (waiting 

a day or two to reapprove already
approved ads)?

Hi Fiku
Unfortunately, there's no way around this.
In AdWords, you can't actually "move" ads. They are simply deleted in the old ad group and new, identical ones are created in the new ad group.

Hi Fikus,

 

To follow on what has been said above, I can only add that if it has been long since your ads are in pending status, then you can write an email to AdWords support to get that checked manually and AdWords support Team will get back to you on the issue as soon as possible:

Hi Fukas,

When you copy and paste ads in different adgroup, adcopies goes under approval process as system needs to check if the new adgroups settings are comply with AdWords policies.

 

Move is not available I guess you are talking about copy & paste option.

Thanks

thank you all for finding the time to answer me.

 

wishing you all the best,

P.S. Am I the only one who find this policy strange?

How can one ad be aproved in one ad group, and be

possibly problematic in another?
