Re: Can't find my google add how do you know if gone live
Check the Ads tab of your campaign--if your ads are eligible, the status column will show that. It means your ads are able to serve search traffic.
As for how you see the data from your ads being triggered, it depends on where you are advertising. If you selected Display advertising, it will take 24-48 hours for the data to be posted to your AdWords interface. If you selected Search advertising, partial data will start showing up very quickly, in a couple of hours most of the time.
