How can I see ads which appear in Google searches overseas?

Hello all!

I'm pretty new to the AdWords Community and this is my 1st Q. I live in Israel and am planning on selling an online product mainly to U.S internet users.
I am trying to investigate what keywords are relevant and mainly what ads appear for these keywords for searches made by people in the U.S. I stress that I live in Isreal.

When I conduct a search in English I see no adword ads once so ever.

Is it possible to conduct a search in Google and see a similar results page like an overseas user?

Thanks a lot!

Dan

Hello and Welcome;

 

The keyword tool is probably a good point to start and find relevant keywords for the product/ service you are offering.

Your location is irrelevant to the location you are targeting; AdWords lets you launch global campaigns anywhere, anytime, on any device. AdWords targets users by matching search queries to relevant keywords (for a given geographic area). Relevancy is one of the "cornerstones" of Adwords.

 

The Ad preview tool will help you to see how your ad will appear for a random user, who is located in the US, searching on google.com .

[Edit] Don't forget to work on your ad-copy to get clicks from relevant  users interested in the product.

Hi Moshe, thanks a lot!
I was actually trying to find something similar to the Ad preview tool. Thanks, you helped a lot. I basically wanted to see who my competitors will be, Adwords speaking Smiley Happy

By the way- I got a reply in the AdWords API forum, with this link:
https://www.google.com/search?gl=us
That's also very useful
