HI hujoon,

Welcome to the forum


What type of ads do you have? Text or Image ad?

There may be some reasons behind this,like :

  • Any of your keywords does not currently trigger any of your ads.
  • If your running your ads on google search network than make sure your keywords have healthy quality score and you are bidding competitively to place your ads in the google first page result.
  • Go to the ADs Tab.In the status column hover your mouse over the speech bubble.It will show you the reason exactly why your ads are not serving
  • Go to Tools & Analysis > Ad preview & Diagnosis. Give your keywords and set the target location and make sure that your ads are showing on the first page.(if you have display campaign,it will not work)


Hope it helps you.
