My ad won't show in selected countries

Hi, Although I have selected Germany and a bunch of other European countries as countries where my ad should run, my contacts there tell me it is not showing. It appears to be showing just fine here in Uganda. What could be the problem?

Hello,

 

Did you run the Ad Preview Tool (https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6055751?rd=1) to really check if the ad is showing or not. Also do the keyword diagnosis by hovering mouse over the individual keyword and see what is says whether ad is running or not.

 

As far as the best practices are concerned, you should have separate campaign for separate country. That would make it easier for you to understand and optimize the account per country basis.

 

This help center reference troubleshooter clarifies and provides various instances where the chances of ad not showing are taken up: https://support.google.com/adwords/troubleshooter/1711301?hl=en

 

I hope this helps!

Just to add to this... just because your contacts are not seeing your ads, doesn't mean they are not displaying. Are you seeing impressions in your reports?

If there are, then try clicking on the dimensions tab and selecting to view your data by Geo ares...
