Anyone else having problems getting traffic lately? In the last two weeks, it seems like FB has gone schizo. I’ve got huge campaigns with $3 bids that are getting no traffic on several of my accts. Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this behavior?
Seconded, they just went full retard today, much lower traffic, bids all over the place, high ctr images getting poorer cpc’s than low ctr one.
Email Facebook and let them know your campaigns are not starting.
Been having convos with a rep about this. Started yesterday but now I’m O_o since it’s happening with some more
Is the FB turmoil du jour over?
Nope – Still in low spend limbo. Waiting to hear back from them.
I’ve read elsewhere that there is currently a major glitch in the ad distribution system. Can anyone else confirm this?
Experiencing this as well, fb going into full schizo mode would be a good way to describe it
We’re having the same exact issue… I even experimented bidding $10 CPC for one of our high CTR campaigns with zero results.
Something is definitely going haywire within the ad distribution.
Their UI slightly changed yesterday so maybe this has something to do with it. Possible algo update?
UI changed for me a couple days ago.
But i’ve been having this problem for probably over a month now I think. I was originally "solving" it by scheduling a dupe of my ad each day with a bid of $1.5+ and a budget of $1000. Ad scheduled to start at midnight yet it wouldn’t start until maybe 3-5pm the next day and blow through $700-900 in a few hours out of the 1000 then die, lucky to spend $100 on day 2, day 3 $0. This is a .4-.5+ CTR ad.
The last few days I don’t know what to do though. Yesterday my account spent about $50 all day, today so far around $30. Shit is super annoying.
FB is FUBAR at this point having bids 3 times over the reccomended max bid and no fucking traffic this shit is pissing me off
Agreed – I’ve been seeing it since around early to mid march, but it’s gotten to the point of absurd this last week. I’ve split campaigns across accounts to see if it was account specific with no luck. I’ve also loaded up super safe, non-aff campaigns to see if it was an issue with the offer/lander/ad etc. Still seeing the same behavior. It’s obviously some issue on the back-end of Facebook, but the fact that it’s been several weeks with no fix is what concerns me.
The issue has actually started for me this week. I don’t even get 100 impressions if I am bidding $100 cpc’s.
There is a apparent issue with Facebook internally but it seem to only affect certain amount of people. For instance, I see some of my competitors receiving high volume of clicks based from their perpetual click subids. So it seems to be account based.
I’m seeing it on several of my accounts though, including a few that have been just sitting around dormant. I am definitely still seeing plenty of affiliate ads out there though.
This is what I am concerned about. I wonder if it is system wide issue or just specific accounts with shady ads that are being capped.
Now it´s happening to me. Wow this sucks.
Edit: False alarm but didn´t get imps all morning
maybe a code glitch when trying to prioritize standard ad platform vs fbx imp bids?
This is normal for me, it usually takes 2-3 hours for me to start getting impressions, i think that’s just how facebook is now since ~march. just bid like $1.00 and just be patient and youll get it eventually.
