Hi I have an ad running and am getting lots of impressions but no clicks. I have even clicked on my own ad ( and it works ie goes to the right website) but there is no record in the reporting of a click and consequently no cost per click info. what am I doing wrong? - although in theory I am onto a winner ie its free I actually want to know my costs for future ads I run.thanks

Hi flm

There is a delay of approx. 3 hours until statistics get updated. From time to time the system even has longer delays (or shorter). If you are still within this timeframe just wait a bit longer.

Regards
Aleks

Hello,

 

Adwords data is not instant, generally it takes some times(2-3 hours), I supposed you seen your adwords account just after you clicked on your ads.

 

wait for some time Adwords will reflect your data.

I also suggest to setup conversion tracking so that you can get exact information about your goal.
