Not showing for keyword, even though there are no negatives.

Hi Guys,

 

This his been a problem for quite some time on my account. I've contact Google support over the phone on 4 separate occasions, with not one person returning my calls when they said they would, and no one being able to fix my problem.

 

So, I am targeting a keyword on exact in my account. The QS is 7, I'm bidding really high for it, all my ads are approved, and the keyword diagnosis tool is saying that my ad is currently showing. If i use the ad preview tool, my ad shows up in position 1, but when I do a normal search on google, my ad is nowhere to be seen.

 

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem might be?

 

Thanks

The problem with this is, I get no impressions on this keyword at all. I used to get impressions and traffic from it, then it suddenly just stopped. So, while I do understand that you want always see your ads when doing a search, but I should still be getting impressions - which I am not.

If you use the keyword planner for your location and the exact match as you say , what is the estimated traffic ? (a print screen would be nice , you could blur the keyword)

Also you can check the same data with the traffic estimator tool and your daily budget and MaxCPC bid, and post the printscreen.


If you select that keyword and a previous month , what was your impression share ? (a custom column)
