Is there an accurate way to use the preview tool to determine if a keyword search is triggering Product Listing Ads on Google.com & on Google Shopping?

The preview tool only works for text ads on the google search network, so technically no. However, if you have product extensions enabled for your campaigns, you may see product extensions showing with your text ads. KW's don't do for PLA campaigns what they do for text ads. The product listing targeting relys on your product categories and your merchant center product feed. You have to rely on the data from your PLA campaigns to insure that your ads are showing, not the preview tool.

 

Just a couple of days ago google had one product ads help doc that was awesome, unfortunately they updated it and I don't know if either of these docs will be as helpful. Smiley Sad Maybe you can find what you are looking for somewhere in these docs?
