i dont get it

 

my keywords have 6 clicks over the past month, but my ad got 29 clicks yesterday

 

is one of the counts wrong?

 

if not on my keywords, where is my ad shown then?

 

is there any way to only get it shown in association with my keywords?

 

thanks

Hi samtalerapi,

 

Usually this happens when you are running both Display Network and Search network in the same campaign, and the display network has no or few keywords. Clicks from the Display Network will not always be attributed to a particular keyword. Look at the Display Network tab for data on where the clicks came from, as either automatic or managed placements.

 

If you are not running on the Display Network, let me know and I'll look a little further into it.

 

Best of Luck,

 

Pete

Thank you for your response

 

I am running the Display Network with the automatic placements

 

My main interest in Adwords is to appear the on Google.com (actually .dk) on the right

Not on other sites

 

Can I do that?

 

Thanks

Rasmus

Good morning - 

 

If you want to advertise only on the Google's search results pages, you should not be advertising on the Display/Content network.

 

Go to the Settings tab of your account and click on your campaign name. Scroll down to the Networks section and make sure the Google search option is checked. If you want your ads served on Google only, do not click the "include search partners" box. If it's checked, uncheck it.

 

While you're there, uncheck the Display/Content option.

 

Now your ads will be targeted only to Google.

 

Good luck!
