Hi @Isis A,

 

Though your campaign was eligible after creating it but it takes some time to approve the ads.

Even after the ads get approved, your account may get under review fro billing verification which may take  up to 3 business days to get approved.

 

So, I would recommend you to see previous dates data to check when the campaign was actually activated.

 

Check your bids and budget if these are too low.

Are you using very specific keywords in exact match type?

What is the average ad position?

Hi @Isis A!

I recommend you to check your campaign status https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722131?hl=en and then find the reason. Also along with solution if possible.

hope this will help you.

@Isis A, also you can try to check that if your ad is showing or not for any particular keyword.

1. Select tool

2. enter your keyword that you are targeting. And then see the result about your ad if it's showing or not.

Are your bids high enough?  What is your position?

 

Is your geography narrow?  Are the keywords all exact match?
