There can be multiple reasons for rules not having triggered any actions (yet):

1. The Rules have not been set up properly

To see a tutorial on how to set up bid-adjustment rules, see Setting up Bid-adjustment Automation. For written guide, see How do Bid Rules work? To understand the interface and mechanism of rules-based PPC automation, see How do Rules for PPC Automation Work?

2. Not enough time has passed / Not enough data has been collected

For more information about the time-frame that rules look at, see What Time-frame do the Rules look at? To understand the importance of sufficient data, see Collection of Sufficient Data for Well-Informed Decisions.

3. Review of conditions in correct time-frame

Actions are only triggered if their conditions are met. The conditions, on the other hand, are very much dependent on the viewed time-frame.

Therefore, selecting the correct time-frame in the Optimize section is essential:


4. Consider the Difference between Keywords & Searchterms

A rule whose action refers to a search term will have no influence on Keywords and vice versa. To see the distinction between two terms, see What is the difference between Keywords & Searchterms?
