    Hi,

    In my experience, they never take more than 48 hours, and if I post many of them at the same time, 60% of them are approved in about 24 hours. Hope that helps

    Is it a Display campaign or a Search campaign?

    This has happened to me a lot in the past. What you need to do is go on google adwords and hit Help or Chat with support and tell them to expedite the review process since it's passed a week.

    May be you have use any company name in your ads. There are many reasons for delay. Give a call to them , they approved right now.

    It can take a couple of days. But humtuma makes a good point. Every time my ads took longer to get approved, it was because I was using a company name in the ad copy. They did get approved eventually, but it took longer.

    Usually google takes three business days to approve the ad. If you've been waiting for your ads to be reviewed for more than three business days, you can contact google. To do so, either you can click on "Help" option available at top right corner after logging into adwords and click on Chat to get it sorted

    Or you can submit the request by clicking on Ad status bubble icon and click on "contact us"
    If your campaign adheres to all advertising policies, it will definitely get approved.

    Hope this helps.

    Send mail to Customer Service. They will speed up the approval of the ad.
