Good morning, good afternoon and good evening fellow quiz enthusiasts and welcome to our tenth edition of AdWords Quizzical Pursuit! This week I'm going find out how much you know about troubleshooting problems and also how to deal with the competition. Get comfortable, grab a drink and let's get ready to quiz with question number one...

 

I have created a small campaign which has been running for a few days now but I am receiving limited traffic if any at all. What actions should I take to troubleshoot this problem?

Could also use the Ad Preview Tool and search for your keywords and see why they might not be serving your Ads when your keywords are searched for. Could also look at Daily Campaign Budgets and determine if they're high enough. Could also look at your Ads and make sure that you have active, approved Ads that are eligible to serve. Main thing I'd look for is my Estimated First Page Bids and make sure my bids are high enough. If bids are ok, I would ensure that my Ads, Keywords, and Landing Pages meet the AdWords Policies and Guidelines.

Now a thought that might cross the minds of a few advertisers, it's question two...

 

My account is reporting that my budget is limited on one of my campaigns; I'm still receving impressions however so is there really much point of increasing my budget?

Hi Scott,

 

Increase the number of keywords with different match type and try to make relevent and attractive ads in your ad group.

 And try to improve your ad position in top 3 position.

The account is receiving impressions because the daily budget causes ads to appear - but only for part of the day. So it makes sense to increase the budget to increase the number of impressions per day.
