ad groups without any targeting

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

My campaign keeps displaying "Ad groups without any targeting (1)"

Some of your ad groups contain ads but don't have any enabled keywords or other types of targeting.

 

Actions - Add keywords

 

When I click on the link - I see 4 managed keywords added under Display Network tab - why is above statement being displayed??

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

If those keywords are enabled not paused, than you have targeting and you can just ignore the warning.

Another variant to check is if you have deleted ad groups with no targeting, I got this warning a few times after keeping enabled Ads in deleted ad groups, after deleting the keywords.

Hi Adrian,

Thanks, the keywords are enabled. I thought I was going mad overlooking something
