Ad review center FAQs
Below are answers to some frequently asked questions about the Ad review center:
Why do blocked ads still appear in the Ad review center?
When you block an ad by advertiser URL or by ad category, you may still see that ad awaiting review in the Ad review center. This is because in the Ad review center we show all ads that have received at least a small number of impressions in the last 30 days.
As such, an ad blocked by URL or category is not immediately removed from the Ad review center as it still has old impressions from the last 30 days. Instead, the ad moves down the list of ads for review (which are ranked by the number of impressions they’ve received) until it no longer receives enough impressions to meet the minimum threshold and drops off the list.
Why are blocked ads still showing up on my pages?
There may be a delay of up to 24 hours between the time you block any ad and the time that ad is no longer eligible to run in your app. This is true whether the ad has been previously approved or only implicitly allowed.
Note also that when you block an ad by advertiser URL or by ad category, you may still see that ad awaiting review in the Ad review center.
How do I locate an unwanted ad in the Ad review center?
To locate an unwanted ad that you would like to block, find the ad's click string, then use it to search for the ad in the Ad review center.
