Campaigns missing Dynamic Search Ads and dynamic ad targets

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

After the holidays I discovered, that for some reason Im getting the following notification on all my campaigns:

 

Campaigns missing Dynamic Search Ads and dynamic ad targets

 

The campaigns are not set for Dynamic Search Ads.

 

My problem now is that none of my campaigns are enabled.

 

What is wrong and what should I look for in order to solve this issue?

Unless you have something else triggering that warning, you should be fine. Wait and see, after 3 or 4 hours you need to have it running, if that's not the case, it's because there's more to it than just the "extensions". Which I don't believe.

Meanwhile, go to "Tools and Analysis" and use the "Ad Preview and Diagnosis" just to see if the ads are showing.

Hi Marcelo,

I suggest 1st you start by checking if any changes have been made to the account. You can do this by going to:
Tools and Analysis -> Change History

Make sure you set:
A decent period of time (top right corner)
Search for "Changed by" - All users (that's in case you have more than one user)
"Change types" - All

If you don't see anything that might give you an answer on what has changed, I suggest you take a look at your campaign settings to make sure you aren't using "Dynamic Search Ads"

Go to:
Campaigns -> click on the the campaign -> Settings -> All Settings

You need to look at the "Campaign type" just on the top of the "All Settings" page, and make sure it's not set to "Dynamic Search Ads"

Hope this helps,
Diogo

Hi Diogo

Thanks a lot for taking the time!

I've gone through your suggestions. But there is nothing to be found.

I've checked the history a none of the campaigns with the issues have been changed lately ... actually for more than a month. I did search with the default settings, the same settings you mention.

I did check again, and none of the campaigns are set to "Dynamic Search Ads". They are set to "All features"

??

Hi again Marcelo,

That's really odd. At least some change should show up.

Please, go to the campaigns and check:
Ad Extensions -> View: Dynamic Search Ad Extension

And see if there's something there. If that's the case, just delete it.

Hi Diego

Thank you again.

There was something there. I deleted it for two of the campaings. The notification still shows, but maybe it takes time to update?
