Yesterday i paused my campaign as it wasn't working out for me at all!

For a few hours nothing came in. It was really paused


Today i found out that it continued even tho everything's showing as paused ?


I had (if i recall) 35k of impressions then i paused it.

Today i'm up to 50k !? Of course the bill is higher too $$.


How come ?


Let me know

Good morning.


I believe the problem is in the schedule for data posting.  The data in your AdWords campaign is not "real time" data. There is a delay of several hours before all impression/click data is posted. Some other kinds of data can take even longer to post--up to a day or two.


If you did pause your campaign, the system went to work to shut down your ad serving as quickly as possible. However, any impressions or clicks your ads had earned that had not yet posted to your account would still be valid and will still need to be paid for.


Hope that helps!

Hummm you are probably right. Sad it happens tho as you need to react fast when you see something that is simply not working. It's a waste of money.
