    WTF is anyone else having problems with their ads? "PENDING REVIEW" It's been 2 days! I have never been more anxious about any method in my life and the ONLY FREAKING THING SLOWING ME DOWN from finding out if it works is ADWORDS!!!

    Is this normal?

    It is normal, sometimes it takes a few minutes, sometimes it takes many days.

    Google is offering you a service, they have to make their work and then you pay them. What if you order by phone a pizza and after 2 days your pizza hasn't arrived? The same goes for Google. Phone them and ask them what is happening.

    Is not as simple as your ads are not running, is just you a loosing money because of their incompetence.

    email adwords support they usually answer in 24 hours.

    also make sure your not using branded words like prada rolex ect they have flags for that

    yeah for sure man i agree with this.

    The one thing I've noticed about Google is that they absolutely do not give a shit about the general world's population, EXCEPT if you're paying them money for advertising.

    You better believe they sure a shit will get back to you ASAP to keep your money flowing in. It is after all how big G makes more money than God. They care about their adwords advertisers

    I've been using adwords as of recently as well and I have to admit I'm INCREDIBLY surprised at how fast Google gets back to my inquiries about almost anything.

    WHAT I RECOMMEND:
    If you send them an email to their support when you're logged in to your account through the proper support ticket method they will get back to you in at most 2 days, typically one. I've gotten some good feedback from their staff already on issues I've had.

    If they don't get back to you then hell even I don't know. Maybe they just don't like ya : P ? jk.

    Now getting those assholes at facebook to respond is another issue. anyone have any suggestions here?

    This week I plunged into Adwords for the first time ever.

    I only had to wait about an hour during "Pending Review" then my ad got "Disapproved."

    Being a noob to Adwords, I simply used the Help section to find the reason. Made the change and was "Approved" within a couple of hours.

    I have since tweaked my ad copy a couple of times and only had to wait a couple of hours for approval.

    So far I have not made a dime but I am using a $100 voucher so I can get my feet wet for free (except $5 activation fee).

    It also depends on the language you use. My experience shows that non English Ads take longer to get approved than English ones. Image Ads can, but don't have to, take up to several days as well for approval

    First its important to be patient and put up good campaigns. Depends on how effective they are.

    Update: Used up the $100 voucher and made 3 sales in the process. However, I was not in profit. I did learn some about how to use the right keywords and how to price my bids and how to write more effective ads.

    I went through the $100 in 5 days.

    I ran ads from 6am to 11pm EST USA and only in the Search network and only in the USA and Canada.

    I linked directly to the merchants sale page not to a landing page.

    As I said, this was my first attempt. I learned a few things so I will try again with the money I made and see if I can do better.

    Hi all, i am the OP of this thread. I posted it when i was a newbie so I'll update it with some info that i learned.

    Most of the time with ADWORDS when i create ads they are pending i believe that's normal.

    The ads maybe pending but it is also LIVE just not fully 100% live you are limited until it gets manually review.

    It is normal when ads says pending be patient Google will get to you. However your ads are possibly already live just not MANUALLY REVIEWED yet.

    I hope this helps. Thank you all who replied i appreciated it. Hope this was able to benefit others.

    Sadly......They'll never get through plus you'd end up getting slammed for life from adwords.

    Unless you play it smart. :D
