yet another adwords question

i have been using adwords off and on for about 3 years- with no problems what so ever

recently i have had my account on pause for about 3 months (doing seo stuff)
anyway i un paused my account yesterday and put my best campaign/adgroup forward (about 5 kw's with qs 7-10)

today i went to check my stats (visits,ctr etc....)
and come to find out this is what it says next to all of my active kw's (Rarely shown due to low quality score)--DID I GET SLAPPED? FOR NO REASON AT ALL?

THIS IS WHAT THE POP UP SAYS NEXT TO ALL MY ACTIVE KW'S

Keyword: KEYWORD'S #1-5
Showing ads right now?
No The keyword phrase doesn't currently trigger any of your ads.
Quality score 1/10
Keyword relevance: No problems
Landing page quality: Poor
Landing page load time: No problems

even yesterday i was getting traffic and my qs were all the same as 3 months ago- today when i woke up it all changed
WHAT THE *#%^ HAPPEND??? im way confussed--i am even using the same landing page so i dont know whats causing it to say its poor.

Hi Nates,
It is possible that after you unpaused the ad it underwent a manual review and the landing page is poor in the reviewers opinion.
You will need to improve that landing page from what they have told you above.

LOL I am feeling like a broken record. the last 5 threads have all said similar things, basically the response I have been hearing is that when they do the human review, they are randomly kicking out people just because the have an affiliate offer on the page,. everything else could be perfect, but the affiliate add will get you kicked out.

I think it depends on the reviewer as well.
Some may be ok, while others need to take a lesson in what is a good quality site and a bad one.

May be, but even with that, there should be a second chance review by another reviewer or some kind of control. ONce a decision is made it is final and they wont change their mind. I have also been looking around at other forums, and it seems to be that it depends on niches as well. some of the more over hyped, and highly competitive niches are the ones getting the most scrutiny.

So maybe we wait till the ad is approved and then once the ad is up and running we add the affiliate link? or will adwords know we updated the site I wonder

they periodically check, besides its not necessarily and instant review. I had some running for 2-3 months before they got reviewed. that would be throwing a lot of money down the drain with no link to an offer on the page.
