Hello,

 

I need to target my call only campaign to female audience. For this I add targeting  female in each ad group in this campaign. But now my ads are not running and I am getting this message in " Ads with some types of gender targeting cannot be diagnosed." in preview tool. 

How can I target call only campaign to female audience only?

Hi Muhammed,

 

First of all, I commend you for experimenting with AdWords' advanced targeting functionalities.

 

I've had issues using the Ad Preview tool when I have demographic targeting for a Search campaign. The last time I talked with Google about this, they said that Ad Preview is usually not going to work when you have demographic targeting.

 

When you say that your ads aren't running, do you mean that you're not getting any impressions?

 

One thing to keep in mind is that AdWords' demographic targeting functionality is relatively new and still pretty limited in terms of audience size, for Search campaigns, so it's possible that the audience that Google is able to target, based on your settings, is too small to get much traction.

 

Best,

 

John
