Why is My Ad Denied?

Why Is My Ad Denied?

Below are the possible reasons for your campaign denial:

Headline - Un-Approved Characters

 Inappropriate or improper punctuation in headlines such as repeated punctuation (???!!!) or symbols (-->, @, *, etc) are not allowed
 Periods and ellipses are not allowed at the end of headlines
 Headline - Misspelling(s)
 Headline - Capitalized Letters
 The first letter of all major words should be capitalized
(ex. The World’s Scariest Roller Coasters)
 Headlines and individual words cannot be in ALL CAPS
      (exception: Acronyms such as NASA)

 All words in the campaign headline must have correct spelling and grammar

Additional Headlines Restrictions
 No use of the word "shocking" or any of its derivatives
 No use of the word “trick” for nutraceutical, finance, or lottery offers
 No use of the word “breakthrough” relating to weight loss, diabetes,
alzheimer's, or any other serious diseases
 No false, misleading, or deceptive claims of any kind. All statements made in headlines MUST be substantiated

Inaccurate Content Branding
Content branding must list either the landing page branding or the offer branding. 

For brand name styling:

 The first letter of all major words must be capitalized
 The brand name should not contain symbols or punctuation (including dashes)

URL Does Not Resolve
A campaign must click through to a working landing page. 

Ad Content/Landing Page Mismatch
Ad content must match your landing page.  
(ex. Content about the world’s best travel destinations cannot click through to a lander about the best turkey chili recipes.)

The content type should match the setup of your landing page in order for it to deliver properly. Accepted content types are Article,
Video and Mobile App.

Image Quality

 Image specs are 420 X 315 pixels (or an upscaled increment of that, following a 4:3 ratio)
 Images must fill the entire space allotted for creative (no white space along any sides)
 Image cannot have a border or partial border
 Image cannot have text in the creative
 Image cannot be blurry or pixelated
 Image cannot have animation or flashing

The image with white space around it would be not permitted

The image with the border would be not permitted

The image with text overlaying it would not be permitted

The blurry image would not be permitted; images should be high quality
