Ad Preview Tool Not Showing Any Ads

I am having trouble routinely trying to get any ads to show in the Ad Preview Tool: https://www.screencast.com/t/BZk7bfn27P5K

 

I understand Google stops showing ads if you search too many times and don’t click to protect Impression Shares and Quality Scores, but that shouldn't apply to the Ad Preview Tool. I KNOW there has to be a bidder for that keyword.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Your screenshot shows local listing not ads...

Hi MosheTLV,

 

Exactly, my question is why aren't there any ads? This happens constantly for keywords that should have ads in a tool designed to preview ads. I'm wondering what the reason could be.

 

Thanks!

I don't know... And I doubt anyone does.... Smiley Surprised

Google does not disclose the details  of the criteria based on the algorithm "decides" that for a given query ads are  shown or not.

I know it's been months since you asked this question, but was it resolved? I'm running into the same issue with my ads. Location correct, good budget and bid, and good keywords. Still no result in the search. How did you resolve it?

I am having the same issues and so are many of my clients.  I have had to instruct them to go on regular google to check their ads which is not the best practice but it's better than them thinking they are not appearing.  I sometimes have to press search on the AdPreview Tool multiple times for sponsored ads to appear and then I have to go through the whole captcha process because Google thinks I'm a bot. Very frustrating!
