Hi,

 

I have been charged for clicks but I dont see them listed in my Keywords or in my Display Network Placements, and think these are invalid.  What is the next step to resolve this?

 

Thanks!

What about the ads tab? It's the ads the user clicks on - Do the ad tab totals match the campaign totals, post 48hrs.?

 

Are these numbers for the all total - Search, display, paused and deleted for the date range? Sometimes I get confused as to which of the total lines is the real total, for everything. Smiley Happy
