Firstly this is my first post so thanks to everyone for a great forum...and please be gentle with me ;-)
I have been running about 10 Adwords adverts (5 different campaigns) for a few days without any problems then all of a sudden over the weekend the adverts stopped being shown. I have had no communication for Google on this (e.g. disapproved advert wording etc) and have emailed them twice without a reply.
I have checked the obvious things (e.g. up to date billing info, daily budget sufficient etc) and all seems fine. The Google traffic estimator predicts that I will have thousands of clicks per day.

Thanks for your response.
I have a star against one of my keywords identifying it as not reaching the required click thru rate but this is against one keyword on one ad group in one campaign. I have quite a few other ad groups and campaigns with no stars.
Do you know how long the Google Adwords team take to respond to messages?

Andystowell, one other thing to check: Your campaign 'end date'. You can check this in your 'Edit Campaign Settings' page.
Many advertisers who are just starting out with AdWords want to run a 'limited test'. So they set their campaign end date to a particular date in the very near future - say a week for example - and then forget about it.
A week later, everything comes to a screeching halt, and temporary mystification ensues.
I hope your particular case turns out to be something as simple as this. ;)
