Hello there;

  • You don't need too many keywords - 5-10 would suffice, to define the "theme" of  the content in Gmail pages. 
  • Gmail is quite popular; so in a competitive field, you might need to raise the bid to get your ad shown.

And a last point: you cannot "preview" your ad on Google display; Trying to "preview" your ad on your machine is misleading, since once the ad is shown, it probably will not be shown again during  the same "session". (Unless you use some other targeting method - I don't want to get into - to keep the answer short)

You need to look at the number of impressions your target has received. It is very rare that you will see your own ad in a display campaign like this. Your ad will not show all the time. If you've seen the ad and didn't click, Google will stop showing it to sooner or later.
