keywords not showing in all campaigns

I’ve created separate campaigns to geo-target specific towns.

When using the ad preview tool I find that my query does not cause my ads to be shown, and references that the location is not selected.

 

And yet, the keyword is plainly in this campaign.

Any ideas? What, all of the sudden, might I be doing wrong? I thought (and was told) that if I had different campaigns I could in fact show within those campaigns without really conflicting with other campaigns.

When you use the ad preview tool, are you selecting your TARGET location in the location option or your current location?

 

Switch that to your target location and it should work.

Hi,

 

While using Ad Preview and Diagnosis tool you need to select correct Domain, Language, Location and Device under “Additional options” where you want to check your ads to appear.

 

Thanks

One thing I find quite effective when doing this kind of campaign is to add all the location terms as exact negative into the other campaigns to prevent any cross campaign conflicting.
