Before your ads are published, they undergo a review process to ensure they meet our Advertising Policies. You can check the status of your ad group or ad in the Status column of your account.
Typically most ads are reviewed within 24 hours, although in some cases it may take longer. The following changes to previously approved ads or ad groups will trigger a new review process:
Targeting (except for age targeting)
Creative (images, ad text, links, videos, etc.)
To view a complete list of changes that will trigger a review, see Changes that Trigger the Review Process.
