    WTF is going on with Ad*Words lately? I've launched a couple of Content Network-only campaigns this week that still have zero impressions.

    OK, I thought, I will launch one on Search.

    I launched an awesome idea last night on Search, both on a brand new AdWords account and on my old AdWords account.

    Brand new domain name also, since my other domain wasn't getting any impressions.

    NO ONE ELSE is bidding on this popular phrase. I set a decent budget and $0.20 clicks, just to get it going, then I would scale back.

    I logged in this morning and I still have ZERO impressions on Content or Search.

    With my NEW account, I went into Diagnostics and saw "Exceeded Budget". This B.S. apparently means that your account is "under review". OK, it's a new account...why not, right?

    But on my OLD account I get nothing on Diagnostics. Everything looks like my ads should be appearing. When I search on Google for my key word / phrase and variations....NOTHING.

    WTF?

    P.S. - Oh, and my Q.S. is either OK, Good, or Great on all keywords...and yes, I chose 'Accelerated'.

    P.S.S. - When I search for my MAIN keyword (single word), Diagnostics says I have no ads set to display for this KW. This is not true, obviously.

    I heard a rumor that the Adwords Dashboard is embedded with subliminal messages that will in fact turn you gay...I don't use it anymore. It was designed this way so that Matt Cutts will have an army of cock to gobble in the coming tribulations of the Sperm Hoarding Wars Of 2018. Pass it on.

    All I can tell you is, that is 110% not true. If you can jump on a hot item or news story BEFORE anyone else thinks of it, you can clean house. Just see my signature.

    I've cleaned up on these before just by checking out Zeitgeist and jumping on the hot 'search of the day' where there is zero competition.

    In this case, something is wrong with my Adwords account. They probably banned my AW account or something. Although, for once, I don't think I did anything wrong.

    havok,

    Yeah, I thought of that. It says...

    "Ad showing?
    No
    The keyword phrase doesn't currently trigger any of your ads.
    There are several possible reasons your ad isn't showing for this keyword, such as:

    * You just added the keyword to your campaign. You may experience a short wait as your keyword goes through the review process.
    * Our server is experiencing a delay.
    * Your ad delivery is being spaced throughout the day."

    #1 - Short wait like 3 - 5 days? On Search? No way.

    #2 - Fat chance.

    #3 - I've got it set on accelerated.

    I've got three or four campaigns active with zero impressions on any of them.

    ya those gurus are probably the same people that say having 100000000 long tail keywords that will generate a total of 15 clicks a month is awesome. I dont see any ads for the keyword "google" and i made like 6k from that LOL dont think they liked that

    Yeah, dude. I read some of your stuff over at that other forum. F*cking genius man.

    Those same gurus will tell you that Con*tent Net*work sucks too, so you stay off of it. Less competition for them.

    Yeah ad*words has been fucking with me as well. I am real sick of it, and only perpetuates my motivation to fuck them over in any possible way I can. They have put all my campaigns on pause, probably a fraud issue or something but i can't even talk to one competent person or be contacted to try to resolve it.

    I am going to have to open a few more accounts with a different card, its kind of absurd but if i give up they win, and that just can't happen.

    Goin back to the ssec/cloaking roots hard within the next few weeks just to fuck G over some more.

    I hate g00gle customer service, they will only give you a vague response. Even I talked to someone on their live chat, he told me it was because "I had other accounts that had broken their TOS", they'll never tell you WHY you broke TOS. And it is not against TOS to have multiple adw0rds accounts.

    Gonna stick to yahoo and msn for now, while I try to open a different acct under a different name, cc, ip, etc.

    Why don't you just tell me your keyword and I will do the search for you. You know Google just doesn't want you to see your keyword until it is $10.00/per click....LOL....

    At least you know better than to give it out. Hmmm..
    All my PPCs w/ Google have been screwed up over the last 6 days. Maybe this had something to do with it:

    GOOGLE SUED FOR AD PROGRAM FRAUD (4/22/08)

    Google is deceiving its customers into paying for ads they don’t want, according to a federal class action lawsuit filed today by Kabateck Brown Kellner, LLP in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California in San Jose.

    "This debunks Google's carefully cultivated image," said Brian Kabateck, who is lead counsel on the case and Managing Partner of Kabateck Brown Kellner. "Google is hurting its customers on two fronts. Google is not only taking money out of customers' pockets, it’s derailing their advertising strategies as well.”

    Kabateck recently won a multi-million dollar settlement from Yahoo! and was part of an earlier $90 million settlement from Google on behalf of advertisers who were victimized by "click fraud" to which the company turned a blind eye....

    Hey, that's a pretty cool article. Hopefully, they their asses handed to them.

    I've never messed with Yahoo before but I'm going to give it a try this week.

    Do campaigns that go on Yahoo's 'search' feature go online right away?
