Ads wont dhow after removing age and gender demographic targeting
We had age and gender targeting setup in our adwords campaign. We recently removed all the age and gender targeting in he campaign. But even after removing them ads wont show at all. Everytime we check the ads it keeps saying "Ads with some types of gender targeting cannot be diagnosed. Ads with age targets cannot be diagnosed." I am sure there are no exclusions for age or gender setup now but I still keep seeing the same thing.

Hi @Sternsystem S,
I'm jet-lagged but I'm pretty sure that the issue lies with the fact that you've removed all the demographic targeting options. If there is nothing left to target in that regard then the ads have nobody they can show to.
The solution is to actually re-enable all of your demographic targeting options, as this is essentially the same as trying to remove them all anyway. You basically open the marketing up to everyone once again.
Please let us know if that doesn't address your issue though.
