Keywords do not generate impressions


If your keywords are not generating impressions in Google Ads, there are several possible reasons and steps you can take:

1. bids that are too low:
If your bids are too low, your ads may not be delivered because they cannot compete in the auction.

  • Solution: Increase your bids to make your ads more competitive.

2. keyword match types that are too restrictive:
Using match types that are too specific can result in your keywords not covering enough search queries.

  • Solution: Use less restrictive match types such as ‘Broad’ or ‘Phrase Match’ to increase reach.

3. low quality factor:
A low quality factor can lead to your ads being displayed less frequently.

  • Solution: Work on improving your quality score by optimizing ad texts, landing pages and the relevance of your keywords.

4. poorly performing keywords:
Sometimes keywords are classified as ineffective by Google due to poor history.

  • Solution: Remove or pause poorly performing keywords and add new, relevant keywords.

5. negative keywords:
Check whether negative keywords may be blocking relevant search queries.

  • Solution: Adjust your list of negative keywords to avoid unintentional overlaps.

6. ad planning:
If you have set an ad schedule, your ads may only be shown at certain times.

  • Solution: Check your ad schedule and make sure it matches the desired times.

7 Geographical settings:
Your geographical focus may be too narrow.

  • Solution: Expand your geographical settings to reach more potential customers.

8. budget restrictions:
A daily budget that is too low can prevent all your keywords from being delivered.

  • Solution: Increase the budget or distribute it more evenly across your campaigns.

9. display status:
Make sure that your ads and the associated keywords are approved.

  • Solution: Check the approval status of your keywords and ads.

10. seasonal trends:
Some keywords are affected by seasonal search trends.

  • Solution: Adapt your keyword strategy to seasonal trends or use keywords that are relevant all year round.
