I finally get the ad to say Serving now but it's been stuck as pending approval and review for the last week. Shouldn't I have gotten an email if there was a problem?

Hi, you will receive an email only if your ad is disapproved. You won't necessarily receive an email when your ad is pending approval.

Hi Offbeatbryce,

 

Image ads take considerably longer to approve as they require manual review. Text ad review, to a large extent, is automated.

 

Be patient. You'll find out soon.

 

Best of Luck!

 

Pete
