Im getting this message for one of my ad groups: "Another creative in the ad group was selected over this on"

Both Ad Groups are targeting the same keyword.

hi Roi T, 

 

it happens when two ad groups are using the same keyword. if you want both adgroups to work use different match types for the keyword.

Hi,

 

This means that if you have multiple ad copies running in an ad group, one of them was displayed in the results based on the ad rank during the ad auction process. Read more about ad position and ad rank in this doc:- https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722122?hl=en

 

I hope this helps!

Using duplicate keywords across multiple ad groups is not the recommended practices. It is better to avoid and instead use the quality keywords relevant to your service/business.

Single ad is triggered from the keyword that you are using in your account. This is applicable to maintain the user experience. Even if you are running multiple websites from a single account, only one ad per keyword would be eligible during the ad auction.

Hi Roi, 

 

This is determined based on online auction. Your keywords will compete against each other and the best one will win.
