New To Shopping Ads...Set up Account/Feed/Ad...now what?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm new to Adwords in general and wanted to use it for shopping ads only. So I followed some guides online. I set up my adwords account, google merchant + feed, and made a new campaign. 

I set it up a few days ago and was a bit confused since I didn't know if it was running or not, but apparently it is since I have a few clicks. 


How do I know which keywords my ad is showing up for? I tried using the ad preview and diagnosis tool but it says "No, your ad isn't showing for this keyword right now. There are a number of reasons why this happens." to all the search terms that I want it to show for.


Is there a way to preview what my listing looks like?


Since keywords are chosen for you, how do you improve your ad to show up for relevant keywords and show up higher?

Thanks!

Click on your Campaign > Ad Group > in the tab menu Keywords, than search terms

 

There is no preview tool other than visually looking for your product, however I do not recommend looking for your own products as it will decrease your ad rank.

 

Keywords are extracted from your titles, so to improve, improve your titles.

 

Hope it helps.

You can preview your ads.
Look at top menu and choose Tools, then the last option - Ads preview.
Then you have to seach by keywords related to your products, sometimes many times to see your ads.

Unfortunately the preview tool does not always show shopping ads in web search.

There is also no shopping ad preview available, the preview tool as is, is currently only available for web search.

 

I recommend asking for this feature in the below form
