Hi @Gul H,


There can be several reasons for ads not triggering. Some of them can be -


  • Payment still not credited to AdWords account
  • Ads/account under review
  • Considerably lower bids
  • Very much restrictive targeting
  • Or other eligibility issues

I would advise you to use this troubleshooter to find the problematic area and wait for some time. If it does not help, contact AdWords Phone Support.

It is the possibility that your campaigns do not have any targeting or you are using very narrow targeting.

For example:- Interest+manged Placement, Manged placement+ YouTube Keyword, demographic+Managed placement.


If that is the case you can use broader targeting.


Other reason could be that your bids are not high enough to get impression. For this, try increasing your bids.

hi Gul,


how long has it been since the ads were created and were paid for. Sometimes it takes a little while for your ads to show.
