I think that the ad preview tool, properly configured with respect to language and location is the ultimate testing tool, since it also provides diagnostic messages.

So no, if the ad doesn't show up in the ad preview tool, my opinion is that you should check why it doesn't show instead of looking for alternate testing tools.

HI Joao,

In addition to excellent point received by Adwiser, You can also check whether your ads have been or not.
If it is in eligible and disapproved, your ads will not appear in SERP.

Go to the keywords tab, mouse over on the bubble, besides the keyword, it will indicate why your ads not appearing in Search enngine result page.

Howerver you can get the same information in Ad preview tool as well.

If your champaign is targted in display network you can not see the Ads in ad preview tool.

So go to the setting tabs and check whether your campaign is targted in search or display network.

Hi Adwiser,

 

i didn't understand your answer, i'm sorry.

If with my ad preview test tool my ad doesn't appear, it isn'suppose to test the ad in the ad preview tool and diagnose to test the ad but with a keyword that triggers the ad, for example? Or optimize the ad that I'm testing the ad with? 

 

Thanks

Thank you Rakesh for the welcoming. I just did the Fudamentals Search Exam and passed, but I failed twice (77%) in the Advanced Search Exam. So I'm asking a lot of questions.

By the away do you think you can tell me other sources besides google adwords learning center to learn more about advanced search adwords? I'm disappointed for failed twice and I really don't want to faile the third!!!

Any suggestions??
thanks
