Yellow asterisks in AdWords

Importance: AWA

AWA responds to a strange report from an advertiser.

AdWordsAdvisor Says: [Link to quote]

Tropical Island, your post sounds intriguing. I am guessing the word in question had two yellow asterisks (meaning it was 'slowed') as opposed to a single red asterisk (meaning it was 'disabled'). Is this so?

If the word was truly disabled, a day by day date range check would tell you roughly when the impressions and clicks came in. I wonder if they might have come in in the hours following when the keyword was disabled, due to server delays?

I only ask because, otherwise, this would be the first time I had ever heard of this happening in the year plus that I have been involved with AdWords.

And if it did happen, we would certainly want to track down why...
