Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Suddenly no ads. Did google match me (browser) to my adwords? I'd do that, most of us would? So is there a time limit now, before i come back online, or have i lost Italian keywords (as the other languages are fine)..
I had actually pushed my highest bid to e10 at the time to see if i could go North, the high low thing, could that have done it?
anyone, any ideas?
for the last few days (not great, but my position had fallen)
today i was testing that out.
Sorry im totally new at all this, but are the languages all linked in groups (even tho they're not seperate campaigns?) and could they all die as that group if i hit something wrong..
If there are 10 advertisers that bid 20 cent.You will certainly not always show when you bid 5 cent even if your daily budget is a million.

If it is not one of these you should email google...
I had a number of different languages all in the same campaign, i'm going to assume this may have had something to do with it. I saw in the FAQ:
"Check your Geo-Targeting.
You can target your campaign to specific countries and languages. If you don't target your own country and language, you won't be able to see your ad. "
I moved all my ads into seperate campaigns all with the correct language and country. Waited, and still nothing.
No warning, no email? I've written to Customer "Support" 2x and still nothing. Isn't CRM important these days?
I've noticed this same thing happen over the weekend. Well, actually, my boss did! He said our ads "stopped showing up" both days at different times over the weekend.
Today, Monday, they looked fine, but after noon - poof. gone again. errr... for the most part. I'll refresh/search again, and sometimes we'll appear again, most times we won't. However, our competitors always appear. <grumble grumble ragga fragga>
I upped our daily budget by 33% to try and give the ads some breathing room -- dunno how long it takes for that change to take effect...
Wondering if the competition is nasty-clicking my ads, despite Google's claims to thwart this type of behaviour?
Also I got a response yesterday..
Suddenly the old ads kicked in it seems (week later, no reason why, had left them alone).
I had given up and made a new account, i paused / deleted all the old ones (except the ones that had stopped), used a different credit card etc etc. I realise this isn't encouraged. But I had no option.
The following email is 'given/we all know this' (and not on the same topic/it's not why my ads disappeared) but I figure it might help someone in the future?
I received this msg from Google
Your account for ***@***.com is currently up and running on Google. However, it has come to our attention that you are currently operating multiple advertising accounts with the AdWords programme. As a result of your multiple accounts targeting the same keywords and linking
to the same site, you are often running multiple ads on one search results page.
In order to maintain the quality and diversity of ads running on Google, we ask that you consolidate your campaigns into one account and disable your excess accounts. If this change is not made we will be unable to run your ads on Google.
Within a single campaign or account, we do allow our advertisers to have multiple ads that target the same keywords. If you run multiple ads on the same keywords, the ads will appear evenly on a rotating basis. Our system
will automatically track the performance of each individual ad. This allows you to easily determine which ads perform well for you. If certain ads in an Ad Group perform poorly, we suggest that you delete or refine
those ads to improve your CTR.
