Hi John,


There could be a variety of answers here depending on how you have set up your targeting.  One thing you can do now is double check that there are no issues.


From this page:


Check whether your ads are running or paused from your Ads tab.

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at
  2. Click the Campaigns tab and select your campaign.
  3. Click the Ads tab.
  4. Under the "Status" column, point to the speech bubble icon next to the status of any of your targeting methods. You should see a confirmation that your ad is or isn’t running and the reason for its status.
