1 appeal left, what am I missing?

Hi, I was verified for many months through the Verified Merchant Program. Then all of a sudden I received an email saying I was disapproved. Nothing had changed with my business. 

The first time it said I was not approved for the following reasons:

- Merchant's website displays several pop-up messages

- Merchant does not meet minimum website quality requirements

I went through and made sure there was not more than one pop-up on the website and that it was easy to close. I also went through the merchant guidelines carefully and made sure my website abided by all of them. 

I re-applied and was denied again. 

The second time I was denied these were the reasons:

- Merchant's website displays several pop-up messages

- Merchant's social media links are broken

I know for sure that my social media links are NOT broken (I checked and triple-checked) and I only have minimal if any pop-ups and they are easy to close. 

Any suggestions before I appeal for the final time? Should I reach out to customer service? What am I missing??
