You can use the ad preview and diagnosis tool to check the status of your ads.This tool will let you know the reason if your ads are showing.

 

If the ads are new or recently approved, just give it time. However, if your ads have been approved for more than 24 hours with no action/impressions, you may need to contact Google support.  

 

Please note that if your ad is not ranking high enough, it would prevent them from being shown and gaining impressions. Therefore, you would probably need to raise the bid on several keywords. Also, ensure that you go to settings and check your targeting settings. You may also want to check your ads and make sure you have separated keywords into different ad groups.

 

I hope this helps!

Hi @best44,

 

Hope you are accessing the data from the AdWords UI where it is showing everything 0.

 

If the AdWords account has been setup recently and the ads are approved after the review then cross check if the AdWords account is still under review/periodic review for billing verification which may take up to 3 business day to get reviewed.

 

As suggested above, use ad preview tool from the tools tab of the AdWords UI.

 

Modify the targeted location, language, device and Google domain of that country in the tool, tool will show the real time status and the reason why ads are not triggering.
