Ad Scheduling issue in Adwords

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

Hello All,

 

I want to schedule Ads of my client, and i want that the Ads will not display between 1 AM To 5 AM. But when i am setting time in Adwords to display my ads (5 AM To next 1 AM), so that my Ads will start from 5 AM to next day 1 AM. Then Adwords shows the message "End time should not less than start time".

 

Is there any solution for that problem? Or I have to pause the ad manually every night?

 

Thanks

Gagan

Hi Gagan,

It sounds like you are attempting to set the start and end times of your ads. What you are looking for is Ad Scheduling.

Ad Scheduling will only shoe your ads during the specified times or change your bids during specified times (and on different days).

Hi - Google treats each 24 hours as a separate day.. starting and ending at midnight.... which is fair.

Therefore, you need to set up two timeslots for ads to show each day. The first would be from midnight to 1am and the second from 5am to midnight. That way each day, your ads will not show between 1am and 5am.

Hello Gagan, 

This is what Google wants to see when you are setting up your scheduling. Like someone else said, you will need two blocks of scheduling, from 5am to midnight and from midnight to 1am.

Give it a try and see if this fixes your issue. 

Good luck!
