hi Jack

I think what you trying to tell is when u search on google u can see the ad but on ad preview tool you cant? Did u check targeting settings on ad preview tool? When u r ad not showing in the ad preview tool it gives u the reason for not showing your ad also, Can u go to the preview tool and let us know what the reason mention there?

Hi Jack
Further to what Nihal said, at certain times you may not see your Ads in the Ad preview tool of Adwords even though in the status in the 'square box' on Keywords page tells you Ads are showing. Though exact reason is not known but the obvious reasons include deficient budget. You may check searching with particular keywords using a proxy settings with no cache and cookie influence.

P.S. Just make sure the ad settings are such that they are eligible to show when you check i.e. campaigns/adgroups are not paused, sched & targeting is fine
