Should have said: it says 'no ads running, they are paused or deleted?

Hi Julie,

 

Welcome to the forum. 

 

From your query, it seems that your account has either got no ads in the ad group or all the ads have been paused / deleted. Please check the adgroup in question to verify if there are any active ads in there. For the same,

 

  • Please select your campaign and then the ad group in question
  • Once you have done this, please click on the ads tab
  • Check if all ads present in the ad group are active

Hi Julie, 


This link here might help you check the status of your ads so you can see if they are paused or active.

Hi Julie,

 

If you hover over the speech bubble beside your keywords, a message will display: 'Showing ads right now?'. You can also use the Ad Preview Tool to check the status of your keywords and ads. More information about these tools can be found here.

 

Also, if you are on manual payments (pre-pay) don't forget to make a payment to ensure there is credit on your account for the ads to serve. More information can be found here

 

I hope this helps!
