No data in remarketing campaign

Hello guys,

 

I have no data in remarketing campaign since start(14 days).

 

I will tell you what I have checked and maybe you can come up with something else.

 

So what I have:

 

  1. Display Campaign for Remarketing
  2. I have remarketing lists with 100+ people in it
  3. I have ads in ad groups within this campaign
  4. I have tried to increase CPC a lot 3-4x times - did not help
  5. Remarketing tag is active
  6. Targeting - only those remarketing lists
  7. I have not incorrectly set time range in adwords editor.
  8. There is budget big enough for this campaign to work
  9. Campaign is active, ad groups are acrive, ads are active

So what did I forget?Smiley Happy

 Hi Alex,

 

I have a couple ideas that I didn't see on your list:

 

  • Try adding both text and image ads, and make sure you have image ads in multiple sizes
  • Make sure that in the +Targeting area of the Display Network tab, you have your remarketing targeting set to "Target & Bid." If it's on Bid Only and it's your only targeting, it won't run.
  • Double checked your location & language targeting to make sure they're set broadly

Let me know if any of these work,

Cassie

Hey Cassie,

Bid only was the issue. Not sure how that happened, but I'm glad I finally found out where is the issue.

By the way, isn't Target and Bid a default setting? I cannot remember changing it to Bid Only.

Anyway thanks a lot Cassie. My list was not long enoughSmiley Happy

Hey Alex,

Glad we caught the issue. Target and Bid is usually the default, but I've had this happen to me before too so I thought it might be the case!
