Where are you looming?

It's actually really hard to see your ad online.... depending upon a bunch of factors such a s your budget, your bid, any targeting, etc - which is why we have the ad preview tool.

Use the preview tool to see if your ads are eligible to show making sure that you set the config to a target audience...

That's one way.

The other way is to go th your list of ads and click on the speech bubble to see if the ad is running.

Of course, the other thing to look ay is the impressions column - being sure to set the time period to a period that the ad should have been live.

You should see evidence that your ad has been showing - if not to you, to others....

If you can't see it anywhere, then you have an issue. That you can't see it isn't really a big problem....

The reasons for ads not showing can be varied. You need to look into some of the primary areas like -

If your billing setup is complete and you have sufficient account balance.
If your are ads are approved.
If your keywords are eligible.

You can run a Keyword Diagnosis to check if your keywords are triggering ads to appear. To reach this, you need to go to Keywords tab > Details > Keyword Diagnosis.

However, if it all are not helping. The best way it to use this Troubleshooter-
