Hi @Preston F

 

Difficult to say without knowing exact specifics, First, it is recommended to use the Ad Preview and Diagnosis tool under the Tools and Analysis menu in your Adwords account to check why your ad is not showing.

 

 

1 - it can take time for a video ad to be approved - is the status approved?

2-  Are your bids high enough?

3 - You mention you have negative kw in place, but have you added any targeting also? Such as keywords, interests, topics?

 

If all these are covered please repost and i will try some other solutions... 

 

Good luck

 

James

Video campaign set by Google staff including max CPC, bids, exclusions, interests and budget, paused last July. We have internal approval to restart with a smaller budget, so enabled campaign with new budget. Ad group also enabled. All other settings stayed the same. 1 out of 4 keywords enabled, which should equal the new budget based on past performance. Removed the campaign from the shared negative keywords library. No content exclusions in place, except no adult or not rated (same settings as original). Interests stayed the same as original as well. 

 

Ad also shows under diagnostics. But no impressions since re-enabling a month or two ago. Status active, eligible.

 

We did change the schedule from 24/7 to 7AM-7PM 7 days per week. Just expanded to 7AM-10PM.
