Extensions in the Ad Preview and Diagnosis Tool

Can the Google AdWords Preview and Diagnostics Tool be upgraded to preview ad extensions?

 

Wouldn't it be great to be able to see your ads with all of their extensions showing, be able to switch on or off specific extensions, and also where you are targeting regional areas, be able to set the geographic region in the preview tool?

 

I can't be the fist person to think of this, does anyone else think it would be a good idea?

Isn't there a feature request forum somewhere where we can vote for new features?

 

Best regards

Hello, Roger.

Some time ago I wrote a blog post about this. In a nutshell, use the Ad Preview Tool and after that hit enter again in the search box below the Ad Preview entry frame.

Don't hit the blue search button, because it is not active. Just search again, this time by pressing enter in the pre-populated field below.

Thanks Calin, that is a pretty good solution as it does indeed show some of the extensions, callouts in my current test, but not Sitelinks or CaIl Extensions.

I was still looking for a solution to show a bit more though, like being able to simulate the display of each of your extensions. I'm sure it would be really useful so you can see what each extensions looks like and so you can sanity check what you have written when it is displayed with your ad texts etc.

Do you know of a way to pose and vote for new features in AdWords?

Best regards
