Hello Stephen,

Welcome to AdWords Community.

You can use the Ad preview tool using this link, then search for one of your keywords. Once you search you will find whether your ads are appearing or not.


With the Ad Preview and Diagnosis tool, you can search for your ad just like you would on a regular Google search results page, without accruing any impressions.

Hope this Helps.

Hi Stephen,


Prashanth has given you the solution you were looking for. You can access the Ad preview & diagnosis tool from your AdWords account by clicking on the Tools tab then selecting the last option from the drop down.


Once on the ad preview page, change the the location, domain &/or language settings to suit your campaign criterias. Once this is done, just enter a keyword that you think will trigger your ad. FYI - You may have to try a few keywords before you get to see your ad,so don't top after just the first one.
