When I do a google search no ads show up (not just mine but none are showing up). ads used to show up until I made one here......  also on the select discussion forum thing 'show all' doesn't work.... also i'm not selling anything on my site, do i still have to pay? really all i want is more website traffic!

If your run ads and your ads get clicks, then, yes, you have to pay. 


There are many reasons for having an AdWords account. Although having a product or service to offer are the most common, some advertisers do want to pay to drive traffic to their websites.


If you are not interested in paying for advertising, I would suggest that your pause or delete your AdWords campaigns ASAP, before any (more) charges accrue.
