i set set up my Google ads yeterday. The status of my ads is eligible. However, if I click Ad preview and diagnosis tools. I can't see my ads. Would you help me to check if my google ads is running properly or not?

Here is a helpful link!

"Ads marked as "Eligible" are still under review. We review most ads within 1 business day, but some reviews may take longer because some ads require more complex review. If your ad is marked "Eligible" for more than 1 full business day, you can contact us and we'll be happy to help you."


Here are some questions you should answer for yourself:

  • Do I have active keywords in my AdGroup and are they getting any traffic?
  • Is there any notice that my billing information needs to be updated?
  • Are my ads not scheduled to run at that time?
  • Has my daily budget run short?
  • Do I have my location set to a geo that aligns with my targeting?
  • Is my AdGroup/Campaign Active?
  • Are my bids too low?
  • Are my keywords too narrow?
