My ads are approved but are not running. Why is that?

Hey Ussama,

Your best bet is to run an ad diagnostic.

Find out about the diagnostic here:

Hope that helps

Hi,

 

There may be several reasons for your ad not running. Try searching your keyword using Ad Preview and Diagnosis tool, rather than searching it straight away in Google. If you didn't see your ad, visit Troubleshooter here.

 

Thanks!

As mentioned Diagnosis tool, will show why its not showing.Also simply if you go to ad tab in campaign and hover through ad status tab you can see whether u r ad is running or not and if not the reason for that.
