My Ads Doesn't Show Up, Why?

Discussion in 'Google AdWords' started by ReformedSinner, Aug 9, 2009.

    I am actually not very new to PPC advertising on AdWords, but I haven't been in the game for quite some time now.

    I tried to start a few campaigns this morning but it still didn't show up until now. Does anyone of you have any idea what's going on?

    There may be several reasons for that: low bid, low search volume, the display URL in your ads is already in use by another advertiser, your ads are not approved yet, etc.

    First of all you can use the Ads diagnostic tool to check whether your ads show up and if not, why. Go to 'Tools' > 'Ads diagnostic tool'. If you don't get an answer there, check whether your keywords are eligible and your bid is hogh enough to trigger the ads.

    smileybones, thanks for the reply..
    Based on the info that I got from Google AdWords Diagnostic Tool, it says that my ad has a Quality Score of 5/10 and I am the only person who is using that specific URL for this ad.

    Any recommendation on anything related to Google AdWords?

    More than likely you're under review - email Google Support

    I wouldn't email them just yet, just sit it out and wait. Unless it tells you in your account that the ads aren't showing for particular keywords then you're under review, that could take 1-2 days.

    i got this also and my ad would not show up until I increased my max bid price. It sucked too since there were only a few of us bidding on the keyword.

    Is your ad approved? You can check the status in the ad section of the ad group. Also check if it shows up for other keywords. For the ones that it doesn't come up you can find the reason by pointing at the ballon icon next to the status and checking the tooltip info.

    Google will take time ti approve some type of ads..
    so wait patiently and check status of your ads on adwords.
    It will be displayed soon..

    This has been going for almost a week already. Should I start to get worried now? What should I tell the support team?

    This problem happens to me however you got to have patience. Sometimes it can take up 1-2 hours for it to show up. Probaly the lag on the web server.
