Question about adwords + google merchant

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I've gone through the approval of google merchant and adwords and my account was/ is live. It ran for about 2 days then suddenly no more clicks to it.

I've seen a limited by budget error in my account ( even though there was a 0 spend ) and I increased the budget. One day after I logged again in my account and seen the same thing ( limited by budget with a 0 spend ).

I've went to my account and added funds but the ads are not running.

I've checked my google merchant and adwords and it\s all good. no errors. Did anyone encounter this type of error? What can be done to fix it?

 

Thank you.

product-listing-ads are part of a highly competitive, dynamic, ad-auction.

 

first, be certain there were no changes to the submitted data (feed) --

especially id values -- and that the products are matching an active

product-group within a shopping-campaign and have not expired in

the merchant-center, by clicking on an item's title in the products-tab.

the message limited-by-budget is mainly an accounting/bid-strategy warning --
the set budget may not be able to accommodate all the traffic from the auctions

for all the items that have been submitted and assigned a bid.

for example, too high bids, for too many items, with too low a budget --
even if the budget was increased this may not be enough to cover the
bid strategy for the entire campaign.

try clicking on the links associated with the limited-by-budget messages --
that may indicate what might happen if the campaign's budget is changed.

options generally include: increasing the budget, lowing bids or improving the
bid strategy for the auctions, pausing the campaign or parts of the campaign
based on certain time frames or bid strategies, splitting ad-groups into more
than one campaign with different budgets, or reducing the number of in-stock
inventory items being submitted.

note that the total daily cost could be up to
20% more than the average daily budget set.

if the ad campaign results are meeting the business's advertising goals,
despite the budget-message then, the message may simply be ignored;

that is, the message is an estimated projection that may merely indicate

limited auction participation.

using the various campaign tools, such as the bid-simulator, may help.

improving quality may also help.

however, forum members cannot look into any accounts.

for more account-specific help and guidance a merchant-center,
product-listing-ad, support-specialist, may be contacted directly --
be certain to indicate that the issue relates to a shopping-campaign.
