ad not serving

Hi there

So sorry about being a dimwit!

I've created an ad to run on a specific site which has been approved but so far has not been served at all.

Please can you tell me where I need to look to see what I've done wrong?

Thank you so much!

Hi Lynne,

Have you checked what message is showing your status speech bubble for that particular placement? Is this text ad or image ad you have created? And please also check whether the placement is compatible with your ads format or not.

I guess this would help you.
