Yestarday, I start my adWords account and started my first compaign. Today early, google received my payment, by until now, there is nothing in the management screen that indicates something is happening. Is there some way to know if my ads were shown? There is no one click. Is it normal?

Good morning.


What is normal is that new ads have to go through an approval process before they're allowed to serve traffic. This can sometimes take a couple of business days to achieve. You can check this by looking at the Ads tab of your campaign to see if the approved message is showing up in the Status column.


When you want to check what kind of traffic your ads are serving (after they're approved), make sure that the date range you're viewing in your account includes the days when the ads were active. 


Good luck!
