If the root of the error is a Google Ads account, you should link the Google Ads customer ID to the MCC account for Search Ads 360.

Unable to sync because trafficking is stopped on the account. Please email support and include the URL

DS3_ERROR_SYNC_UNSUPPORTED_DATA_ON_ENGINE:...

Possible Cause 

This can happen if you are using Upgraded URLs, but have not yet completed the migration in Search Ads 360.  

Troubleshoot

Update the data on the engine, or finish the migration to Upgraded URLs.
 

Unable to sync because clickserve.dartsearch.net is not in your list of authorized tracking domains. Please contact your Baidu Account Manager to fix and try again

Possible Cause

The linked Baidu account needs to authorize the Search Ads 360 clickserver. 

Troubleshoot

You'll need to Contact Baidu, as they'll need to associate the Search Ads 360 clickserver with your account. Read more on creating Baidu engine accounts.
 

Can't sync because one or more keywords specifies different HTTP schemes for mobile and non-mobile URLs. Change the keywords in Baidu to use either http or https for both URLs, then sync again

Possible Cause 

At least one of your keywords uses conflicting HTTP schemes for mobile and non-mobile URLs. 

Troubleshoot

Fix this directly in your Baidu account. Read more on implementing device-specific landing pages.
 

Unable to sync because the account failed to be migrated to Upgraded URLs

Possible Cause 

Due to a failed migration to Upgraded URLs, your account will be adversely affected by a sync.

Troubleshoot

Contact our support team for more information.
 

Unable to sync this engine account. Please contact support because the agency or advertiser could be paused

Possible Cause 

A scheduled sync ran on a paused or deleted account.

Troubleshoot

If the engine account is paused, you can either:
  • Run a manual sync on the paused engine account, and then resume the engine account.
  • Remove the paused engine account, and recreate a new version.
If the engine account was removed, you need to recreate the removed engine account.
 

This engine account setting may not match the engine because of an issue during sync or trafficking

Possible Cause

Troubleshoot

Run another sync with Fix all trafficking errors selected.
