About status review

Advertising with AdWords involves many moving parts and requires time to set up. In the new AdWords experience, "Status" review is found on the "Overview" page and will surface important alerts to help you understand and resolve issues with your Display and remarketing campaigns. You’ll find 3 types of alerts:

  1. Critical health and/or performance issues that require a resolution for your ads to continue serving
  2. Issues that require attention to reach the full potential of your ads and maintain a healthy campaign
  3. A health status informing you that components of your Display campaigns are working as expected

Benefits

Available as soon as you begin using the new AdWords experience, Status review will help you find and fix issues that are blocking or limiting your Display campaigns. For example, you may see an alert that one of your ads wasn’t approved, and with 1 click you can find the ad, campaigns, and ad groups the disapproval is affecting.

How it works

  1. Select a display entity from the navigation panel on the left side of your screen.
  2. Click Overview from the page menu on the left, to the right of the navigation panel.
  3. The "Status review" card is on the right side of your screen, next to the performance chart. This card displays up to two alerts regarding issues with your selected display entity along with a count of how many additional alerts there are to view.
  4. Click on View to see the full list of alerts, or on any single alerts to expand that alert.

Status review alerts are brief, and provide information as well as relevant links to reach the pages and articles you need to help you fix your Display campaigns.
