Google Ads Script - Check for Disapproved Ads

Published: November 19, 2022

Script Type: Manager


Script Information

Your Google Ads can be disapproved for many different reasons, this can result in a loss of traffic and revenue if not fixed quickly.

When managing multiple accounts, Google’s default checks may not be sent to the right person. This script fixes that issue by allowing you to tailor who alerts are sent too as well as increasing the frequency that ads are scanned.

You can use this manager level script to send an email alert if any of your ads are disapproved in your manager account. This script will only check enabled campaigns, adgroups and ads.
