    I've been trying to get my ad on adwords running for days and nothing. I have a yahoo search marketing account and got that one up and running in minutes. The ad for the adwords has been approved and so has the billing, but all the keywords remain eligible but are not showing. :eek:

    Adwords takes much longer than yahoo search advertising as there are infinitely more ads to weed through
    on google. I've never had it take more than 3-4 days to get an ad up and running, assuming you've passed
    their initial account check and you're not "under review" in which case it could take a week or longer.
    Contact them via their web form that can be found under the adwords section (its purposely tricky to find)
    and tell them you've been waiting for a few days and they will generally escalate your issue and get back
    to you in 1-2 days max.

    The same thing happened to me for one of my advertising accounts. As I mentioned, just contact them and explain that you've been waiting for a few days and would greatly appreciate it if someone could look into it. Be polite and short in your message and you'll hear back within 1-2 days.

    Home Page:
    keywords don't have to be approved

    if you set your campaign daily budget low, then your ad won't show 100% of the time

    if your cpc bids are too low, then your ads just won't show at all, even if the keywords say elligible

    the only thing you should have to wait for is the ad itself to be approved, then it should start running immediately as long as all your settings are correct

    also make sure you set the date range to 'today' instead of 'last 7 days' because that doesn't include the current day (something i missed when i first started doing adwords lol)
