Advertisements not showing

Hi guys, I could use some suggestion here. I have just reduced the bid for my keyword "XXX" as there are no other ad placements for this specific keyword. However, even though there are no other advertisements and my ads are active on my adwords account, my ad is not getting displayed if I type in the same keyword.

 

Come help would be highly appreciated.

Hi Binod,

If no one else is bidding on a particular keyword, it does not mean that your ads can be shown if you bid $0.1
You need to increase your bid up to a recommended/suggested level to show your ads for that keyword.

Though later you can reduce it after getting the actual bid for that keyword.
No other ads does not mean that no one is bidding, might be others have used ad scheduling or out of budget or any such reason.

Hi Binod,

As archit said there is a minimum bid you have to put if you want to ads to be appear on the google results. Try increasing the bid as per the industry standard, if you don't know about the industry benchmark you can use google keywords tool to find out the first page bid & can bid accordingly.

Happy to Help!
