Hi ramthilagar, would this "demo" be after an AdWords Campaign is running, or before?

 

If the Campaign is running then you may be able to use a search term that matches one of your Keywords and, if conditions are right, see your Ad.  However, bear in mind that unless your budget is sufficient, Ads may not display for each potential match and you must also take into Account location settings, schedules, or any other restrictions that may cause Ads not to appear for a particular search.

 

If there is no Campaign running, there's no way to show an Ad.

 

Generally speaking, I would not recommend trying to "demo" Ads live on Google Search.  If it works, it's great, but it's more likely not to work when you do it in front of a client (because that's the way the world works) and that then raises questions within the client's mind that you have to try and answer.  If your client is concerned about position, give them regular reports from AdWords, including the Top vs Other report, rather than trying to show their Ads live.

Hi there,

In addition to expert advice by Jon, I would like to add here - You can use ad preview tool for search campaign and take a screenshot of the top queries. I usually share screenshots along with the reports as Jon already stated. If campaign is running, it is not advisable to use Google live search rather use Ad preview and diagnosis tool.

Thanks
