In this article, we'll dive deep into the reasons why Meta rejects your ad, bans your ad account, or restricts your page:
Navigating The Common Causes Behind Facebook Ad Rejections
Facebook ad policies are designed to ensure a safe and positive user experience on the platform. When your ad gets rejected, it can be due to a variety of reasons. Let's explore some of the most common factors that may lead to ad rejection:
- Violation of Meta's Advertising Policies: Meta has a long list of advertising policies that cover everything from prohibited content to targeting restrictions. Some common violations include promoting illegal products, using before-and-after images in personal health ads, or targeting users based on personal attributes.
- Misleading or False Content: Meta doesn't take kindly to deceptive advertising practices. Your ad may be rejected if it contains false claims, unrealistic expectations, or clickbait headlines.
- Low Quality or Disruptive Content: If your ad features low-resolution images, poor grammar, or excessive use of capitalization and symbols, it may be deemed low quality. Similarly, ads that are too disruptive or flashy might also be rejected.
- Non-Functional Landing Page: Your ad's landing page needs to be fully functional and relevant to the ad content. Broken links, non-existent pages, or pages with poor user experience can lead to ad rejection.
- Issues with Text and Image Ratio: Meta prefers ads with minimal text overlay on images. Ads with too much text or an overwhelming text-to-image ratio might be rejected.
- Social & Political Issues: If your ad talks about sensitive issues which could influence public opinions, you need to create a disclaimer before Facebook approves your ad.
P/S: Your ad may be stuck in review for up to 48 hours if Meta AI thinks it is controversial and requires a manual review.
To avoid ad rejection, it's crucial to familiarize yourself with Meta's advertising policies and ensure your ads comply with them. If your ad is rejected, don't worry! You can always edit the ad and resubmit it for review.
Understanding and Preventing Facebook Ad Account Bans
Having your ad account banned can be a major setback. Let's look at some common reasons why Facebook might take this drastic action:
- Repeated Policy Violations: If you consistently submit ads that violate Facebook's policies, your ad account may be flagged and eventually banned.
- Unusual Activity: Suspicious behavior, such as a sudden spike in ad spend or ad performance, can trigger Facebook's security systems, leading to a temporary or permanent ban.
- Circumventing Systems: Using any method to bypass Meta ad review process or attempting to manipulate ad performance data can result in a ban.
