Hi Frank,

 

There are many reasons your ad would not show on Google search.

 

Instead of doing a live search on Google to see your ad, you should really use the Ad Preview and doiagnostics tool. It will tell you if your ad is running, and sometimes why not.

 

1. Has your ad been approved?

2. Have you set up your payment info?

3. Is the campaign geo-targeted and, if so, are you within the area?

4. Does the keyword show "Low Search Volume" in the AdWords UI?

5. Have you seen the ad a number of times before and now it doesn't show up? That would be because if you never click on it, Google will figure you're just not interested.

 

My guess would be the Low Search Volume. Try geo-tareting Winnipeg instead and leave Winnipeg out of your keywords.

 

Best of Luck!
