Hey Terry, how are things?

Unfortunately Google doesn't have a preview tool for Display.

The best way I'd say it's to get the placements where your banner is showing under the "Display Network" tab, and go check that placement.

A lot of people just take a screenshot of the website and add the banner on some photo editor. You can lost a lot of time searching for display banners.

If you REALLY need/have/want to see your banner, I'd suggest to narrow down your campaign schedule to the hour you're in, and then going on some of the listed placements.

Hope this helps.

ya I am trying the Placement method, but it takes a long time and there is no guarantee.

What is it you want to do with this ad, exactly?

Have you tried using the Ad Gallery? You can view those before you make them live, and create ads with content pulled dynamically from your website.

Hey Terry,

 

There's no way to guarantee that you will see your own ad. You can waste a lot of time just to grab the screenshot with the website with your banner.

 

Personally, if you know that the ad is showing there, simply compose the website and your ad together. Don't waste time looking for you banners on display unless they're remarketing.

 

That's my view on this.

Hi Terry,

 

 

Please keep in mind: Your banners sizes must be compatible for those placements, that's why it is always recommended to build banners in different sizes to get more exposure on every placement.
