Hi again guys,

 

I get this message when I hover the mouse over the speech bubble next to "eligible" in some of my keywords in some of my campaigns. In one such campaign I'm using radius targeting to restrict my ads to a 30 mile radius in Massachusetts. I've used the ad preview and diagnosis tool extensively to try to solve this issue but it states again, "Your ads are set to show only to users in the locations you've chosen."

 

I'm targeting a relatively large area, there are no exclusions, and there is money left in the daily budget. There are 2 keywords I'm using that give this issue for not showing my ads and they both have 7/10 quality scores, but the landing page experience is below average for both.

 

What the heck is my issue?

Hello there;
As far as Geo targeting   I don't think you are doing something wrong. This message usually  appears when there are two locations with the same "town name". 
The question is whether Adwords  reports stats? Do you see any impressions/  clicks reported?

Thanks for the response, AdWords is reporting stats, I have 13 clicks and about 1700 impressions, and I actually just got a conversion yesterday, despite the message that my ads aren't running.

I am running three campaigns in the same state, and I'm pretty sure theres some overlap so this might be the issue.
