Disapproved Paused Ads

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

I have a notice that I have 9 paused ads. Upon looking at them, they are old ads I am not using. The landing pages have been deleted - which is why they were disapproved. I always like to leave the ads in a paused state for future reference. Our business is very seasonal. Is there a better way to handle this? I have never noticed this message before.

Hi Penny!

Paused ads are reviewed and do need to meet all criteria and policies at all times.

If you want to keep the ads/account structure for future use, change the URL's to the site homepage for now. The existing disapproved ads will be deleted and new ones created but you have no choice but to edit or delete disapproved ads which in essence is a delete either way.

Then when the time comes, you update the ads for use.
