Hello Avi,

 

First of all it is not at all recommended to check your own ads from live Google search because doing this will hurt your own numbers like impressions, CTR etc...

 

There's Ad Preview Tool which can be used to check real time results on Google search:-

If you click your own from Google search, you will be charged, so it is advisable not to do that. And rather take the benefit of Ad Preview Tool meant for the advertisers.

 

When you hover mouse over the speech bubble of individual keyword, what message is shown to you? Does it say ad showing or not?

Hi Avi,

 

In addition to what Pankaj said, what is the geographic targeting of your campaigns? In case the targeting is different from the country that you are in, you will not be able to see your ad.

And to add to the above;

 

Note that Geo- targeting is not perfect;

In many countries you can only target by region or by city. Targeting by radius just won't work;
