Ads not running

Hi I have a campaign that indicates it is running. However, my ads aren't showing up in searches I run and there's no history after Thursday this week (when I temporarily paused the ad, then re-instated it later that day, with a different landing page). Any ideas?


Campaign and all adds are 'eligible' and show a green dot.

eligible is different under google terms. look in your ads if it says eligible it is most likely under review. If it says approved that means your ads are running. You may also find a bubble near the world "eligible" which will say if your ads are running or not and a reason.

Note: if approved and you see the bubble that says your ads are not running do to ad relevance that is a lie in most cases of a way for google to try and have you increase the bid and make you spend alot more money on CPC.
