Does anyone know how I can schedule my ads to run certain times of the day?  I went to "Ad Scheduling" and it says "go to settings, then go to advance settings and schedule your ads",  but there is no "Advanced Scheduling" button to click on in "Settings".  Does anyone konw where that button is?  Howie246

If you go into the settings for this campapign - right at the top there is an option under the General section for Type... this needs to be set to All Features and not Standard Settings.

 

I think that when you change this you might lose all your other settings so you'll want to make a note of what they were before doing this (you may not since the campaign has laready been set up - I'm not sure - but stray on the safe side of things.

 

In most cases you'll want to chose All Features as a matter of course - it's Google's way of making things easier for new advertisers, but it is very limiting.

 

Also - just as a note... when you set scheduling it is set to YOUR time zone - not the user. So If you are in New York, and your campaign targets the UK you need to add the five hour difference - so - you want your ads to start appearing at noon in London - you'd need to set the campaign to start at 7am

 

it's a little confusing - and it does mean that you often have to set up different campaigns for different geo target areas - your ads are either on or off at any time - and that is your time - so be careful with this!

 

Hope that helps

Thank you for you reply but there is no "Advanced Settings" button to click on; which the article you sent me speaks about.
