Hi baliindonesia,

 

There are quite a few reasons you may not be getting the results you expect but we'd need to have a bit more information to be able to help you.

 

Are you using keywords and placements?

Are your bids high enough on the placements? You really need to be aiming top 3 ad spots to get good impression volumes.

Have you got a mix of ad sizes as well as image and text ads being used?

Are you on cpc or cpm bidding?

 

Normally if the targeting is set up correctly, upping your bids (even if it's temporary) will help you see whats going on.

Hi,

 

In addition to Adam, I would like to ask you that are you using any specific topic and interest or targeting any specific category?

 

Thanks!

I think it could be that your keywords and making the targeting to tight as the keywords help refine where your ads will appear on your placements.Have a look at how placements and keywords work together

 

Maybe try setting up an adgroup that doesn't have any keywords, but just your placements to see if this helps.

 

I'm not really up with your currency as I've not used it before but are you really bidding around $90 cpc? Or is this $0.09 if it was USD? If it is $0.09 you would need to increase your bids to help try and secure an ad spot on these sites as well. You probably aren't the only one wanting to get your ads onto those sites.

 

I would also recommend using all available ads sizes (at least 2 of each) to make sure your ads are at least eligible to enter the auction for available ad slots.

Hi,

 

I would suggest you check few more things:

 

1. Are you using "bid only" or "target and bid" for your placements?

2. The placements you are using, are compatible with the ad sizes you are using in your adwords?

 

I would encourage you to have combination of texts and image ads on your GDN campaign.

 

I hope it works.
