I am trying to use suggested ads to advertise my business under an existing campaign I created. The new ads are graphic, Flash player based and created by Google and approved by Google. Yet the only ad that seems to appear for my campaign is a text based ad I originally created for the campaign. Is Google even displaying the new type of ad yet or do I need to wait and hope it appears? I'm in New Zealand so it's no surprise if it hasn't started working yet.

Hello and welcome,


I would like to confirm from you before we starting troubleshooting steps, whether you have enabled Google Display Network in addition to your Search Network or not because these flash based image ads only run on Google Display Network.


Go to campaign settings and see which campaign type you have? Search only or Search and Display Networks both?
