    I start off with simple test ads that go to my somewhat controversial squeeze page (which has obviously been approved), and all is good. Then, I test all of my ads to see which is working the best, and all is good. Then, I decide to increase the visual appearance of my ads to make them 10x more clickable, and what does sitescout do?

    DENIED
    DENIED
    DENIED

    Virtually the SAME content except I actually make them stand out. Not only that, but after the new ones are denied, they go back and deny some of the old ones.

    Maybe there have been some complaints from the publishers about the old ones?

    It must be something to do with your editing of the ads. They were approved before the edits to make them stand out so
    it has to be in that process where you are having a problem with denial. Are you changing the ads by much?

    I'd say maybe try a new round of ads or just wait a couple days and try again.

    You probably have compliance issues. My offices are a couple blocks away from sitescout's they have a great team over there don't knock the product! :)

    Toss out your old set and start fresh. Your one ad being denied triggered a review of all your older ones. The good news is the ones that didn't get nuked probably wont ever be touched.

    At least they are getting denied, I have spend about a thousand bucks on sitescout and about 60% of my campaigns did not receive any impressions, despite everything being approved and active. Support said that an ad being approved does not mean it will run, as the publishers need to approve the ad too. Which they rarely do, especially if you have an original angle for a campaign and not something typical/corporate-like.

    SiteScout is great if own a legit business doing a lot of revenue and want to test banners out, if you are a low-volume affiliate forget it. IMO.
