i have paid £20 into adwords.. and want to spend it lol

But it hasnt gone down at all.

 

Next to my add it say 'eligible' and theres a little green light too that indicates that my add is enabled. Yet there are no stats and no deduction from my account.

 

am i missing something here??

 

There are two adds. The youtube video add is clearer and i understand why that may not be running yet. It says that its under review. but the other one i cant find any info on!

Hi Brent,

 

If your ad says 'eligible' that means it will run on Google search only, not on searh partners or on the DN. It also means the review of the ad is not yet completed. If your campaign is on DN only, it will not begin to gain impressions until it gers an "approved" status.

 

Best of Luck!

Hi Brent, 

 

You might also want to check out the Ad Preview Tool. This issue can come up fairly often, and this tool gives you a good idea of whether or not your ad is running and if it isn't will give you a reason as to why. 

 

Hope this helps!
