Hi @Bill H,

 

Can you put some light here?

Are you unable to see your ads live with your keywords but getting the data in the AdWords UI or you are not getting the data as well?

 

If you are getting the data but unable to see the ads when you search your services with your keywords then:

  • check bids if it is below 1st page and your ads are rarely triggering.
  • check budget
  • check ad rank

One stop solution to check any such issues is the ad preview tool, it will help you know the real time status of the ads and the reason if ads are not triggering.

 

And if you have no data stats in your AdWords UI then check if your ads got disapproved or ads/account under review process.

Hey nice question don't get confused , use the Ads Preview toool on your AdWords account to check if your Ads are showing . 

 

However your Ads might not show because of your Budget , Your Ads will not show all the time if you are using Stardard Ads delivery method .

 

If you want your Ads to show all the time use Accerelated  method of delivery . 

Note : That changing for standard to accereleted you will experience Budget deplation , which means your budget will get exausted quickly .  Hope this helps !

@Alamu A,
