Hi pheasant55,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

The best way to see if your ads are showing is to use the keyword diagnosis tool in the AdWords interface.

 

If you go to your keywords tab you can click on "keyword details" then "diagnose keywords", select which keywords you want to test and then run it.

 

This will give you details on if your keywords are triggering your ads.

 

If the stats are building up you can be sure that they are showing. You may not see your ads all the time if your budget is less than the recommended amount. If this is the case Google will periodically be showing your ads so it doesn't go over your set daily budget.

 

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions please let me know, I'm happy to help.
