How to see what search terms people used before clicking on my ad

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi, I was wondering how to see what search terms users are using before clicking on my ad.  For instance my Keyword is Tax Jobs, I'm wondering if the user typed in "Canada Tax Jobs" "How to get tax jobs" etc.

 

Is there a way to run a report in google adwords?

 

Thanks!

Hi Sarahml,

 

Yes you can do this very easily but you have to wait for 24 hours after the initial click to get your data.

 

On your keywords tab there is a button "keyword details" and if you click it and select all you can see all the search queries people actually used when your ads were clicked. You can also highlight one or a few and view them if you want some more precise data.
