Hello everyone. This is my first post. I have been reading the forum for about two weeks now, just learning my way around. Anyways...
I have signed up for addwords with google; setup keywords and min PPC and so on, and was on and rolling for a few days. I had a few click througs and I was studying which keywords are more popular by looking at the impression colomn. However, for the past three days, the number of imressions has not changed for any of the keywords ( some of them are very popular keywords). Also, my add does not does not show up when i type those keywords. I set up my daily budget to a very high ammount so i know it should come up every time i do a search. Does anybody have an idea why i get no impressions?

Hi Vlado - welcome to WebmasterWorld!

moved your post over here to the dedicated Adwords forum

If you look at this forum you'll see you're not alone. The reporting functions are down or not working properly for many people from different countries.

I'm starting to wonder if this is just the inability on Google's side to get it fixed or if there's something in the works with adwords.
After all the delays in reporting have been on and off for several weeks now.

If your ads are not appearing then it's probable that your click through rate (CTR) has dropped below .05% or, in other words, less than 5 clickthroughs for every 1000 impressions. If this is the case then there should be a red asterik beside the term and an explanation below.

The other thing it could be is a problem with your credit card or an editorial problem.
