Re: who do i know if the ads are online ?? is it easy to activate .. and monitor the progress
Check Ad Preview and Diagnosis Tool to find out.
It's under the tools menu. Type in your keyword(s) to see if your ad is showing. The tool gives results in real time. In other words, if you're ad is showing at the time, it will show that. If you daily budget has run out, it will tell you that, too.
Best of Luck,
