my ads have never shown every time i search for them but lately it seems to have gotten rediculous... half my ads aren't showing up, even though the ad diagnostic tool says they are showing (and i have search and content network turned off). recently i raised a lot of my bids in an effort to spend more money. but despite my new higher bids, i am only spending a tiny fraction of my daily budget so i don't see how it could really be a budget problem. should i raise my budget even higher? all i want is to spend more money on adwords!
is anyone else having a similar problem? do you have any advice? i suppose i will contact google but they always give me the same half-baked answers.
Just a few hints: - check that your bid is not higher (accidentally) than the daily budget (you wanted to input .65, but you entered 6.5) - check that you have an Ad (and not deleted by accident) for each Adgroup - create a test Adgroup, with a common KW and check if that appears - also, check how much is the estimated daily budget.
