How do I test independently if my adword ad works?

I can see the billing based on the number of clicks in the control panel, however, actual contacts have dried up over the last two or three weeks.  When I try to test whether the advert actually appears, I cannot manage to see it when trying a variation of keywords in Google at random times during the day.  I have selected "Standard: Show ads evenly over time" for distribution, so somehow, I should be able to see the ad when I try 10 times throughout the day over three days.  What could be wrong and/or how can I test independently to actually see that it is working?

Hi AnsieJ

 

Welcome to the AdWords community :-)

 

Whenever you want to search for your ad, you should use the ad preview tool. This allows you to search for your ad without accruing ad impressions on your account. Please see the link below, I think you will find it helpful-

Kind regards
