Evergreen,

When you see ave position 0.0, the first thing to check is to see if your ads are approved and running, that is usually the main indication of this issue. One the first impression is sent out, and ave position is recorded.

You can check with the Ad Preview and Diagnosis tool by clicking the Bubble next to the keywords or run the test for Keyword Diagnosis under the Detail drop down tab

Or run the Diagnotic test

Diagnose individual keywords:

Click the Campaigns tab.
Click the Keywords tab.
Hover over the speech bubble next to the status of your keyword to see whether your keyword is showing ads and its Quality Score. If your keyword isn't showing ads, we'll explain why and help you solve the problem. You'll also see a breakdown of your Quality Score, which includes your keyword relevance, landing page experience, and landing page loading time.

Diagnose multiple keywords at once:

Click the Campaigns tab.
Click the Keywords tab.
Click the "Details" drop-down menu.
Select Diagnose keywords.
Diagnose your keywords

You'll see a Diagnose keywords panel where you can customize your diagnosis to answer specific questions about your ad's visibility. For example, you can test whether people on specific Google domains, those using Google in a particular language, or those in particular countries are seeing your ads. Choose which attributes you'd like to test.
Test your keywords
Click Run test.
Once you receive results from your diagnosis, the information in the Status column will change. To see results for a particular keyword, hover over the speech bubble in the Status column. Click the Close link above the table to clear your diagnosis.
