Google just announced that the compmay has begun reviewing Google AdWords "paused ads" in the same way they review active ads. "We are proactively reviewing paused ads to eliminate unnecessary delays in getting your ads approved and ultimately enhance your ability to plan and manage campaigns," informed Lauren Barbato, Inside AdWords crew.
"New and existing unreviewed paused ads will be sent through the standard ad approval process. This means that paused ads will be subject to our AdWords advertising policies, and ads that violate one or more of our policies will be disapproved," stated Barbato.
Barbato said "If your paused ads were originally disapproved, it's easy to resubmit them to be reviewed again."
