Google Adwords Pending/Under Review

Seems like I’m not the only one experiencing this issue with running a new ad on Google Adwords. Previously when I run an ad it would get approved in less than 5 minutes. Now it’s more than 24 hours and my ad is still not running. The ad is even a simple one, we just wanted to run an ad so we can quickly get feedback for a survey we are conducting.

Here is a link to other users affected by this “approval system” for new ads on Google.

I wonder why Google is actively promoting Google Adwords, I even get emails for free 2K to start using the ad system and I see banners everywhere, but they are soo missing a lot more potential clients on the delay on their approval system.

It’s almost close to 48 hours. I hope Google sees there is a big issue with their ad approval system.

Happy Birthday Gmail

Gmail is 5 years old. Way back 2004 existing email solutions like yahoo and hotmail were the only good options. Thanks to revolutionizing what online emails are. Huge storage, ajax features, chat, feeds, etc… Looking forward to more enhancements in the future.

5 Years of Gmail.
