Is there a column showing whether my ad is showing?

Is there a column that will show whether my ad is showing for a particular keyword? I can hover over the "status" column, however, I want that info displayed without the trouble of all that hovering.


Also, anyone know why when I hover and when I go to preview and diagnostics, the visibility status doesn't match up. When I hover it says my ad is showing but when I click on preview and diagnosis it says no.

Hi @Hector C,


There is no such metrics in the AdWords UI.

I would rely on the ad preview tool as it shows the real time status of ads from any particular query relevant to your keywords.


Though, you can add some other useful metrics from the columns tab(competitive metrics).

These include: Search Impr. share, Search Exact match IS, Search Lost IS (rank), Search Lost IS (budget).
