What your ad group status means
|Ad group status||What it means|
|Eligible||This ad group’s set to run. It’s a good idea to check the Ads tab to see if policy violations are keeping individual ads from running.|
|Paused||You’ve temporarily stopped this ad group from showing ads. Its ads aren’t running. You can resume the paused ad group to start ads again.|
|Removed||You’ve removed this ad group. Its ads aren’t running.|
|Incomplete||You haven’t set up necessary parts of this ad group (like keywords or ads). Its ads aren’t running.|
