Does The Ad Preview Tool Work With RLSAs ?

I have an audience of visitors in the last 14 days and two campaigns that are mutually exclusive based on this audience. I.e. one campaign targets the audience, the other excludes it. The ad-groups and keywords are identical, however, the bids and ads differ.

 

The ad preview tool seems to completely ignore the audiences, ie. it ignores the fact that I have visited the site. It just shows the ad from whatever campaign ad has the highest bidding keyword. Is this a bug or is this expected behaviour ?

Hi, Nick.

As you can see in the tool's interface, there's no option to select a specific audience. All you can select is domain, location, language and device.

Therefore I guess what you see is the expected behaviour.

Thanks Calin.

 

That's the conclusion I came to. Eventually !

The more I think about it the more obvious it is.

It would be a nice feature. I've never seen it discussed anywhere though.
