Search ad issue

Just started search ads. It began yesterday. The whole thing just stopped running. Why did this happen. Been watching for a while.
Going good then nothing...
Is it due to the time of night?
I sell much of my stuff at night...So why would it stop now.

Hello Anita!


Charley is correct. What you budget for Search Ads is spread throughout a 7-day period. When you don't see impressions in the early morning hours, that could be because your allotted budget for the day has been spent. Check back around 8am Eastern US time in that case.

As you review your promotion over time, you can divide your budget for each of the 7 days your promotion runs and review your stats. You should notice that your stats are fairly consistent throughout your promotional week. If you'd like to increase the number of impressions you get on a daily basis, you can increase your weekly budget to accomplish that.

As this does not appear to be a bug but does appear to be a pertinent Site Help question, I'm going to move it to the Site Help forum section now. You'll be able to find the thread there!

I thought I read in another thread that they do stop at a certain time and then start again in the morning.
Mmm...I don't remember that happening before...really? I thought it was 7 days straight..
I hope not. That's when I really wanted to pay attention this time.
MMM.. i must rethink search ads...
I think when you reach your daily limit then you stop. You will pick back up again I believe 8am est?
I think is kind of scam.... before I've start using I had usually about 40 views a day in avarage I've check almost a year in the back. When I definite and use that it add me like 3 or 4 views, now when its expired my views extremely dropped for more than in half . Now its like 17- 25 per day. Isn't this weird?
MMMM...I'm writing a daily log. I'm experimenting with it. I will keep track for one month after it stops..See what changes...
