my stats show i am getting impressions ... so i tested the diagnostics tool with obvious unique words and non of them triggered anything ... yet my stats say the ad is SERVING ? 

my video seems to meet all the requirements because im only choosing youtube search ( dont need viewers to go to our website ... (and youtube allows the overlays with links) ... after only checking network search our video is still in "not serving" mode ?

why isnt there just a status button that says .... 'this is why your video isnt approved' for the following reasons ... mine is always BLANK ... there's just no reason listed ?

Hi GuitarChildren,

 

If your budget isn't high enough to support the ad across 24 hours of the day the advert will only display intermittently. That's a typical cause why advertisers can't find their own ads. (E.g. geotargeting is another usual reason.)

 

Best,
