Why aren't my Ads running?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I had all my campaigns paused for a couple of months.

 

Two weeks ago I "re-activate" them, they have now an "enabled" status altough no impressions/clicks nor charges are being done, basically it is like I would still have my campaigns on "pause".

 

I do have funds (automatically recharges my account) which makes me feel a bit lost.

 

Can someone plese help me?

 

Thank you,

RP

Hi Ricardo,
Can you try using the Ad Preview & Diagnostics Tool:

This should tell why your ads are not showing.

Hi Ricardo

Do check that you have not paused ad groups or keywords or ad copies by
mistake.

Sound to me like there is a billing issue, because you don't see any impression/click data/charges in your account and everything is enabled. Did you pause your campaigns for a couple of months or did you close the account and just recently re-activated it? Check to make sure no adgroups/ads/keywords are paused.

Hi Ricardo,

Inbcase you used CPA bidding in those campaigns , a pause of 2 months will prevent the system from having fresh conversion data to make bidding estimations. In this case you need to switch back to another form of bidding for a while until you meet the CPA requirements again , that is "at least 15 conversions in the last 30 days"
