My ads were showing until today...

I've been running ads with Google for years. Currently I have them on automated bidding, and it's worked fine until today. The automated system set my bid at a penny, even though my ads and keywords are all approved and had been showing in the top five until today. I don't understand what happened, or why the system dipped it down so stupidly low. I haven't received any impressions at all today (obviously) even though my account is fine and everything works.

Hello donnaluise; welcome;

 

A few questions trying to troubleshoot what has been going on:

 

  • What is the QS you are having now compared to the past?
  • Why did you go by auto bidding?
  • Have you made any changes to Keywords (added, deleted, negative, match type,,?)
  • Has competition increased in your area of business?

nvm. I'll just ask them tomorrow. I'm not going to go through answering all that just to get an answer on a bulletin board.
