Ads Only Display Certain Times Of Day

Not a budget or scheduling problem

We are an experienced Adwords advertiser, but this recent issue is really racking my brain.

We have a new account inside our MCC account. Inside this new account is a new domain. We are send a large number of ad groups to the same domain. In the thousands. They go to different landing pages.

The problem is our ads only display certain times and not others. Yesterday for example we received huge traffic till 2pm PST and then literally it just all stopped, no traffic for the rest of the day, ZERO! Today we received traffic till around 5am and now ZERO again.

The keywords are all active for search, we have content network on, ad scheduling is turned off so we display all the time, ad budget is insanely high. There is no setting that would cause this.

The only thing I can think of is because this is a new account with a new domain Adwords is almost testing us, instead of allowing us to display all the time, even though based on bid, quality score etc we should be displaying all the time.

With other accounts we have no problem receiving huge traffic immediately and displaying the whole time. These campaigns have tightly focused 1 ad group per domain.

Does anybody have any input with regards to this?

I'm sure you've probably checked this already, but do you have the budget delivery set to standard or accelerated?

Accelerated, but it wouldn't matter as I set our budget about 50 times higher than we would ever spend.

Well it is possible it is some sort of review, but this is actually an old account that was paused for a long time and then we started to re-use it again. Today is now the 3rd day this has happened, so you would think they would just do an account review once and be done with it.
