Ads Not Showing

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi All,

I set up my campaign and it's not showing any ads (no impressions). My ad got approved, I have enough funds in there ($50 total w/ a $20 a day limit) and my bid is higher than the suggested bid. It is labeled w/ the green button (enabled). I am wondering if I am missing something or is there another box I have to check or something.

Hi Arlonmc,

 

Please check your ads in Ad Preview & Diagnosis tool.

 

Under Tool & Analysis down down, click on Ad Preview and Diagnosis Tool. Now enter your keyword, select appropraite domain name, country/city/state, devices etc and hit search.

 

Check if you can see your ad.

 

Thanks

Hey arlonmc,

 

You could go to your keywords tab and in the column next to the keywords, you will see a speech bubble.. hover on it and you will have a pop up which tells you if your ad is currently showing or not. If it's not showing, you will have a reason for it right there.

 

If you have just started your campaign, I'd suggest you wait for a while to start seeing your statistics.. even if your ad is showing, google takes some time to treport stats to in the interface.

 

For other reasons, you could see this blog:

Hope this helps!

 

 

Cheers,
Shweta
