Local AdWords campaigns can be challenging.  I'm assuming you are using AdWords, not AdWords Express? Some questions for you, then we might be able to help:

 

How big is your geotargeting area?  City name or rough population targeted? How long has the campaign run?  Daily ad spend and average CPC?

How are you setting your bids?  How many keywords, and which match types are you using? How did you select your keywords?

Is your Ad copy compelling?  What is your average click through rate (CTR) over the past month?


If you can give us that type of info, we may be able to provide some constructive suggestions.

Hi @John B

 

I can understand. For someone who is new to AdWords, it's easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of the options available. There are three things advisable here -  hire an expert to help you setup and manage ad campaigns for you or start first with AdWords Express or invest some time in learning AdWords yourself.  

 

To get in touch with an agency, you can do a search for Google AdWords Partners here at www.google.com/partners. To contact a community member here, you can visit their profile section. 

 

Note: Agencies and experts are third parties, not Google. 

 

However, if you can spare time to learn, this community is the best place to start. Feel free to ask anything that you need help with. About Call Only Campaign, you can start here https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6341403

Your campaign stats sounds OK.  It's the Ad disapproval, that's the new information.  

 

When your ads are disapproved you need to figure out why and correct it.  Here are step-by-step instructions from Google:
