Ad review centre FAQs
Below are answers to some frequently asked questions about the Ad review centre:
Why do blocked ads still appear in the Ad review centre?
When you block an ad by advertiser URL or by ad category, you may still see that ad awaiting review in the Ad review centre. This is because in the Ad review centre 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 centre 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 that 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 on your site. 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 centre.
