Hi,

 

If I search for my ad and see it while logged into my AdWords account, do I trigger an impression?

 

I expected to see one in my account by didn't after I saw my ad.

 

Thanks!

Hi Drew,

To check on your ads you should use the Ad Preview under Tools in your AdWords account. Otherwise the performance of your ads can suffer.

If you make a regular Google search and see you ad, it should count as an impression whether you are logged in or not. It typically takes 3 hours or so for the impression to show up in your AdWords stats.
