We have 5 ads that have been sitting unchanged with Under Review for over a week.  How long does it normally take to get ads approved?  Can anybody tell me?

Hi Arise,

 

When you say 'unchanged' I'm hoping for you this means, unedited.  Each time you edit an ad, the ad approval process will start from the beginning.

 

In this Adwords Help Article about ad approval, there is a link to contact adwords support.  This would be your next step.

 

Unfortunately, there is no set timeline for ad approval.

 

Good Luck!

Hi Arise,

 

You're very welcome.  You are not the only person posting here that is having trouble and experiencing some delays in getting accounts/ads approved.  My guess is there is a bit of a backlog and the Google folks are working as hard as possible to get through the approval process.

 

If the form doesn't prove helpful in the next day or so, you can also call adwords support just make sure to have your customer id ready when/if you call.
