Slow Growth After Account Hold

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm hoping I'm not the only one to have experienced this and could use some advice!  My account was temporarily suspended two weeks ago because of unauthorized login attempts - it has since been reactivated, but I'm noticing a slower pace of clicks and conversions since then.

I've increased bids to match page one suggestions where possible to help rebuild and I've looked at all of the usual suspects when there's a downturn but I am stumped this time.

Any advice would be helpful.

Thank you!

How long has it been since your campaign ads started running after your account was re-activated? It may take 3-5 days before your ads resume its previous position.  


If you haven't already done so, I would suggest you enable ad conversions in your campaigns. This is a great way to track which keywords and clicks lead to certain actions in your campaign - downloads, purchases, calls, etc. You can use this link
