    Hi guys,

    I am doing GDN on Google. I created various Ad Groups and checked through Display Planner/Forecasting that all my targeting have a lot of traffic, but still, I don't get shit.
    I already tried increasing budget and etc, but nothing happens, still not getting impressions and of course, I don't get clicks.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Are your ads approved?

    Are you bidding enough?

    Yes for both.
    In the estimated clicks I should be getting 100k clicks according to my CPC.
    But I think I am not getting impressions at all.

    can you post a screen shot? ads not getting impressions can be due to various reasons such as but not limited to : your account is under review, your ad score is very low, your keywords are very low volume etc..

    Make some text ads as well as banners. It's possible that there's no inventory available for the whatever ad unit size you're targeting.

    eg. Ad group with 2 text ads and 5-10 keywords related to your topic. Use +modified +broad +match.

    Also before you go crazy trying to get traffic, set a budget of $50-100 for the group/campaign. It's pretty easy to spend $1000 by accident if you do mega-wide targeting.

    Ads not getting impressions is a clear cut indication of account under review, better you write an email to adwords and you will get a reply stating the issue.

    Generally Adwords rep replies in 24 hours but with a tempelate email, ideally complaint from our end should go after 3 days of campaign creation.
    If at all the account is slapped then you can request for review, a form is being provided by adwords and you will have to take a stand. if there are small violation of policy adwords give warning, just edit the site with grey area and account gets live.

    But at last remember its adwords jurisdiction.

    I had the same problem. I have an active account, but for 2 months I didn't use it. So after I charged it, I have an impressions and clicks and then after 1 week my impressions and clicks lost. So, I wrote to Adwords and they said it was technical problems in my account. They advised waiting 2-3 weeks while they fix it and recommend creating the new account which they will be credited.

    So if your ads, keywords, bids, locations and so on fine, you have to write to AdWords. To faster respond use Live chat or just call them.
