Campaign won't run

I started a new keyword related campaign a few days ago, but it looks like it won't run.

I have several campaigns which get impressions for those keywords.

But this one has not had a single impression yet (for days now). I raised (X4) the PPC but no impressions.

Why is that?

is it blocked? how can I check that?

Content, Search or Both?

Content & CPM ads take a few days to get approved. Search usually kicks in under an hour.

Did you duplicate an existing campaign? Google will not display 2 ads from the same account, if you have the same keyword in different campaigns. One having good performance will be given priority.

If you are using different keywords then,

1. try to increase the campaign budget (for the time being and then reduce it once you start to generate impressions/clicks).

2. Are you using negative keywords? See if any important keyword has been entered in negative keyword list, by mistake. You can find this issue by using "Ad Testing" tool.

If you want to use duplicated campaigns, then try to geo-target them to different locations.
