Ad approved and running but can't find it on Google

Our ad is up and running and we are getting clicks on our ad; however, when we log out of our account and search for the ad on Google we cannot find it. Is there a way to make sure that the ad shows up on Google search?

Hi,

You might be targeting some other location than the you are physically present.

The best way to find the ad running or not is using ad preview and diagnostic tool.
Go to Tools tab >> Ad Preview and Diagnosis(change your preferred targeting location, device, language and domain).

Using tool will not contribute in real time impression, hence it is recommended.

Hello Shanita
Be careful when searching on Google for your own ad, if you do that often (and do not click on it) that tells Google that you are not interested in that ad and they will stop showing it to you.
