When did you actually create your ads?

What is the current status of your ads? Approved, eligible or under review?

 

When you hover mouse over the speech bubble of individual keyword, what message do you get?

 

Are you getting data accumulated inside your Adwords account or not?

 

I would also like to add here that doing a live search for your keyword/ad will result in hampering your own stats like impressions, CTR etc.. Hence it is always advised to use the essential tools provided by Adwords i.e Ad Preview Tool, Keyword diagnosis. Best part is that using them won't effect your account numbers.

 

Let us know about all this so that Community can specifically address your issue.

It happens for any of the belwo mentioned reasons:

 

1. When your ad is not scheduled to run in the time frame you are seareching.

2. Your ad is under review or not approved

3. The bid for the keywords is too low to be eligible to appear.

4. Your billing status has not been approved yet.
