Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I was happy to help and up for the challenge.
I was able to bid on several terms on Overture and they were up in less than a day, for which I am very grateful.
However, for the life of me, I can't get an AdWords ad up. I have created a new account and had it active for two days. It now shows one impression. I'm bidding on dozens of common phrases that I've typed into Google personally, such as Tsunami victims and Tsunami children. Nothing comes up.
I have also tried adding an ad group to my currently active AdWords account.
I've tried calling over there and only get a voice mail.
This is quite disturbing because I have checked all my settings and everything is set right. We've done dozens of campaigns for clients and have never seen this with Google. Also, there was a great CNN report tonight on Tsunami orphan children that could have raised awareness for my client.
Are they putting some sort of hold on Tsunami keywords in an attempt to filter out "losers" that are trying to rip off the unwary? If so, how can I reach someone to help my legitimate organization.

In the UK a single freephone telephone number has been set up for donations, and everybody is encouraged to use that. People are also encouraged to ensure that any organisation they wish to donate to is listed as registered on the Charity Commision's web site.
I hope to see my ads live by the end of today.
