keep getting - "The keyword phrase doesn't currently trigger any of your ads." for adwords keywords

What gives? My account is on pre-pay and Google gave me a $100 credit which i used towards the account. I've also updated my credit card info.

Also my keywords and ad are very well aligned.

Any ideas?

    I did that once, I think ( and will stand corrected ) that there is not enough search volume on the keyword for Google to trigger an ad?

        Well, Monday is a holiday....

        Have you done a search for your phrases/keywords?
        Do you see any ads? Not that it's sign, but google
        does want adwords users to actually get ads seen.
        If your terms are for nonexistent searches, or
        ones that trigger no ads, then the phrases you are
        going for are useless.

        Have you actually tried tweaking these? Do some
        searches first, using a new related set and see if there
        are ads. When you find one, bingo.

        Google does not, nor would they ever, put ads on all searches.

    Have you ran these 'phrases' through the Google Adwords Keyword tool using the exact phrase option and actually seen what kind of search volume they are siupposed to get?

    Increase your CPC price and ads will start triggering.
