Hello there. Already tried 3 times to start from scratch..but my campaign is not starting at all. Got Credit, Keywords and all the jazz. Can anyone help me about?.
Already contacted support on the Live Chat..told me he was about to call me..but a few hours later and still waiting for the phone call.

What type of campaign? How do you know it's not starting? There is a delay in impression data showing up, especially when you start a new campaign. 

 

If there is a message, or some other indicator that the campaign is not starting, please share. 

 

Did you check ad status on the ads tab, to make sure they've been approved?  Ad Groups off pause?

Agree with Steve.  Please take a look at the ad status bubble and let us know what it says.  Do all of the ads say "approved"

 

How long have you been waiting?

Hello Steve.

I've been waiting around 33 hours so far. All ads approved and showing on the green side (Enable) Ad Groups off pause.

Keep in mind than im doing a Youtube In-Stream campaign heavily focused.

It can take a day or so to approve and start running.  Is your bid too low?

Yep per @Shanee_Kirk sounds like your campaign is running but something is causing it not to display.  Besides the bid, what is your targeting? Perhaps it is simply too tight to pull any matches to search term.

Spanish Speaking Countries heavily focused on Simulation. Even went a bit up on the bid, so far no news.
