Trying to setup Managed Placements on Display Network.

Hi there,


I set up a campaign on Display Network although it's not working.


Below I am sharing options of my campaign:


Display Network - All features

Devices - All

Locations- USA

Language- English

Focus on clicks, Auto bidding, CPC bid limit: 1 USD

Budget: 10 USD/day


Display Network tab:


Display keywords:

istanbul tourism

istanbul travel agency 





Some 12 websites listed. Topics, Interests, Gender and Age sections are blank. 


My ads are not running, for now it says: This ad is not eligible to run on the search network. 


Apparently I am missing something, could you please help/advice what to do?

First, I wouldn't be too concerned about the message you saw. You're targeting the Display network, so your ads not being eligible to show on Search is not a problem. (I would, however, encourage you to check the Campaign Settings tab to make sure that you didn't accidentally check the search networks option for ad serving.)


When you say "it's not working" I assume you mean your ads are not accumulating performance data?  How long have your ads been up and have they made it through the approval process yet?

In my experience the AdWords system works slower and more unpredictable when it comes to advertising on the display network.

I´d wait for a 2 days to see if it starts.

If nothing happens, raise your bids significantly (you can do that early on if you keep a close eye)

You could also choose broader keywords (like "istanbul" instead of "istanbul tourism").

Have your ads been approves already?
