Last Tuesday, it was Google's 'Automatic Matching' which created quite a stir among the webmasters. Now as if it wasn't enough, it is reported that Google prepay AdWords aren't functioning at all.
The issue was brought to light by a webmaster on Google Groups discussion forum. He said that he is having some serious issues with two prepay Google AdWords accounts, since Thursday last week the accounts have been offline. He further wanted to know about the others who are having the same problem.
However, without offering any solution, the Google AdWords rep confirmed after speaking to the tech team that there indeed is some problem with some accounts. Trying to appease the advertisers, the rep went on to state that Google AdWords has taken the matter as high priority, however, the rep made it clear that they also don't know when the issue would be solved.
After accepting that there is a technical issue, there has been no further update from Google AdWords. The AdWords prepay requires advertisers to pay before their ads run and begin to earn clicks. As users click the ads, Google deducts the charges from the advertisers prepaid balance.
