Hello - my video ad has been serving for 2 days now and still has not received any impressions.  For all my other video ads, I see immediate results.  What am I doing wrong?

If you have added neither keywords nor placements to your ad group the ad will not show anywhere.

You need to add keywords and/or placements.

Hi

Really, really difficult for anyone to say, but please check this:
1) is it the same ad group as your other video ads?
If not..
2) have you added any keywords and/or placements to this ad group?

Hi David,

 

No it's not the same ad group as my other ads.  And no I've not added any keywords or placements to this ad group.

 

I am very confused as to the issue.  I even created a seperate ad and still no results.
