Brand new user. First campaign. Approved but ad not showing.

Hello

 

Brand new here and only one campaign and one keyword. Keep getting the following message

"One of your other ads is already showing for this keyword". I don't have any other ads!

 

Any ideas of how to get around this?

 

Thanks

I see that error message sometimes when I start a brand new campaign. Did you recently set this up? If so, just give it some time and your ads will eventually serve.  

Sometimes the reason given why an ad is not serving is incorrect. If you did just recently create this, the real reason is that it's still going through approval.

Ok. I have just set it up so I think you are probably right. I will just have to be patient. Thanks!
